by Tavera Del Toro

When I tell people I write novels, they often ask me where in the world do I get my ideas, which after a few general answers, I usually just say, “I don’t know, it just flashes into my head”. To be honest, that’s a half truth.

Like any art or endeavor, one can’t just perch down at your desk and inform your brain, “Okay, brain tell me a story!”

Q01 – When did you decide you wanted to become a writer?

When I was 9-years-old I read a book that made me want to be a writer. It was “The Whistling Sword” by James Robert Green. I was so impressed by how he used true people in fiction. I bought the book from a library that closed just to have it.
