Why is writing important to you and why do you think it's an important medium for the world? I've always pursued creativity and writing as the ultimate. It existed centuries before any electronic media and will be around in some form for as long as there is civilization. The books that I have written will be around for a long time.

What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer's block? I don't write on a deadline. If I get writer's block I just do something else until the muse hits me again. When it does I usually get tons of writing done.

What is your favorite time to write? At night, when everyone else is asleep.

What's the best piece of writing advice you've ever received and would like to impart to other writers? I was 65 when my first novel was published, so it's never too late. This is very true, but I always add, don't wait until you're 65!

What excites you most about being a writer in today's age? The one good thing about digital social media is that the feedback is almost instantaneous. You can potentially see reviews on Amazon and elsewhere within days.
