Author Reece Brett's FAQ's
Where do you get your ideas for writing?
Ideas are everywhere—in the news, from overheard snippets of conversation, observing people, listening to songs. I never have trouble finding ideas. My trouble is staying focused on one story until I complete it.
When did you start writing?
I can’t remember a time I didn’t write. For years I taught creative writing, I wrote with my students. After leaving teaching, I wrote for various magazines. I now share ideas with other writers through writers’ organizations and through my radio program on QBC.
How often do you write and where do you write?
I write daily usually in the morning. But I write wherever, whenever I can. I carry pens, notebooks, my neo with me so if I am waiting in a doctor's office, waiting in line any place, I can jot down ideas, continue with a story.
Where do you get your ideas for your passionate scenes? Are they difficult to write?
This question always prompts a smile. I have a passionate muse who inspires all my sensual scenes. Of course, they are fun to write. Passion and sensuality are wonderful parts of life!
What advice do you give to beginning writers?
Believe in yourself and write, write, write. Follow your dream. Talk with other writers. I belong to New Jersey Romance Writers and I have developed some incomparable friendships. Other writers have been supportive, helpful and encouraging.
Who are your favorite authors; what do you read?
I am an eclectic reader who enjoys variety of books. I am a member of two reading groups so I read many books I might not have picked up on my own. My favorite authors at the moment are: Lisa Wingate, Susan Wiggs, Sheryl Woods Robin Carr and Carly Phillips. I also am a big fan of Pat Conroy, Anne Tyler and John Irving. My all-time favorite writers’ book is Stephen King’s On Writing; I highly recommend it for any writer.
