PJ: How long have you been writing?
Chris: I’ve been writing for publication for 16 years.
PJ: At what point did you reach a place where you felt successful as a writer?
Chris: I haven’t reached that place yet. I’ll let you know.
PJ: The general public seems to think authors are relatively wealthy. Without prying too much, has your writing income lived up to expectations?
Chris: No, but I’m still hopeful.

Chris: I still focus on publishing, but I spend more time on promotion than I ever thought I would.
PJ: How long did it take you to get published the first time?
Chris: Six years.
PJ: What is the single most exciting thing that’s happened to you as a writer?
Chris: Probably having someone so excited that I chose them as a beta reader. A close second would be when someone tagged me in a photo of them reading my book.
PJ: With more books being released each month now than ever before, what do you believe sets your work apart from the others?
Chris: I think I have a unique view of the world. I don’t write exactly like a woman so I think my work can appeal to both men and women.
