<h4><strong>Meet today’s guest, Carolyn Arnold.</strong></h4>
<p style="text-align: justify;">She is an international bestselling and award-winning author, as well as a speaker, teacher, and inspirational mentor. She has four continuing fiction series and has written nearly thirty books. Both her female detective and FBI profiler series have been praised by those in law enforcement as being accurate and entertaining, leading her to adopt the trademark, POLICE PROCEDURALS RESPECTED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT™.<br /><br />Today, she answers a few questions for us and gives us insight into her life and journey as a mystery author.<br /><br /><strong>As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?<br /><br /></strong>I don’t remember back as far as a young child, but as a young adult, I either wanted to be a defense attorney, a police officer, or a journalist. As a crime author, I’ve really become a blend of all three. LOL<br /><br /><strong>If you had one wish, what would that be?<br /><br /></strong>That people would use their energy for building other people up and that the world could unite, accepting each other’s differences, even when there’s not the threat of an alien invasion or global destruction. ;)<br /><br /><strong>How do you develop your plots and your characters? Do you use any set formula?<br /><br /></strong>I write organically or go with the flow. Writing in this manner is also known as panster-style. If I set out to write an outline—even a brief one—my creativity stops.<br /><br />When I start writing a book, I normally only have the concept of the plot. Most times I don’t even know who the killer is and I never know in advance how I’m getting my investigators to their door.<br /><br /><strong>What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a published author?<br /><br /></strong>It will take a lot of hard work, likely more than you can imagine until you’re immersed in the process, but there is no need to get overwhelmed. Take one day at a time and keep your focus on how much you enjoy writing and how you are writing for the readers who will love to read you.</p>
