Can you tell readers a bit about yourself? I write novels about uncommon heroesordinary people (and/or animals) who are called upon to do extraordinary things. I write in several genres: YA urban fantasy, paranormal thrillers, comic mysteries. Large mainstream publishers such as Simon & Schuster, and small, indie publishers have published my books. My novels have been translated into various languages and I have an international following. Im a member of the Dog Writers Association of America, write a humor column for TAILS Magazine, and much of my writing supports animal rescue projects.

When and why did you start writing? I wrote my first story at five years of age (a ghost story) and have been writing ever since. I was born to write.

What's your favourite genre to read? I love reading all genres.

What is the best thing a fan has ever said to you about your novel(s)? That it touched her soul.

Are there any books that have made an impact on your life and what are they? I actually began reading at three years old and the first books I read were the LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Thats when I decided to become a writer.

How much of your writing is realistic? I feel its all realistic. I believe in the subject matter I write about. And I do copious research down to the smallest details.

Do you have a motto when writing? “Art Must Be Fearless!”

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors? “Read, write, study, join writers support groups. (I have my own online group at http://forum.devinwrites.com feel free to join us!)

If you could spend the day with one author or character from any books who would they be and why? Oh, Sir Terry Pratchett. I not only love his writing, but I am fascinated by his mind. I know he has been dealing with Alzheimers, but I bet he is still brilliant and provocative. Yes, definitely Sir Terry.

Is there anything specific you'd like to say to readers? Enjoy my books. Theyre written to be enjoyed on a variety of levels: pure entertainment, as philosophy, and as inspiration. Take from them what intrigues you. Allow your heart, mind, and soul to be touched. Its why I do what I do!
