Leodegraunce: How long have you written flash fiction and what drew you to the genre?
Rebecca L. Brown: I've been writing flash fiction ever since I started writing! That would have been . . . oooh . . . fourteen years ago. I'd write very short stories for my friends at school or for family members. I love the way flash fiction forces you to think more carefully about the words you use and how you use them. You can't waste space. It keeps your writing sharp.
Leodegraunce: What are some of your recent works?
Rebecca L. Brown: Recently, I've been spending a lot of time working on my Blood Cravings e-book series. The first book, Fever in the Blood is now available on Amazon.com, and I'm working on a second now.
Leodegraunce: What are some of your writing plans for the remainder of 2012?
Rebecca L. Brown: Like I say, I'll be focusing on the Blood Cravings series for a little while. I'm sure I'll find time for a few flash pieces too, though, so don't worry!
Leodegrance: What is your top writing tip for aspiring authors?
Rebecca L. Brown: Keep writing - wherever you are. Carry a notebook with you and use that train journey or the five minutes at work when you're drinking coffee to play around with words. You never know what you might come up with!
