If you could give one piece of writing advice to authors, what would it be?
What do you think of self-publishing?
How did you come up with the title?
If you could meet anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why?

What other novels are in the pipeline? Will you explore other genres?
How do you construct your characters? Do you usually have real life people in mind when creating them?
Just curious but what has your experience been so far with publishing "Chasing The Sun"? Have you learned anything about the industry you'd be interested in sharing after getting your first novel out?
