1. Who you are and what do you write?

Hey, I’m Ava Wood! I am a mom, wife, basketball enthusiast, photographer, and author. I have four fur babies (2 dachshunds, a corgi, and a Chihuahua mix).
I write Young Adult as well as Contemporary Romance (under the pseudonym Ava Lynn Wood), but everything I write evokes emotion. I try to write stories that make you think and make you feel.
I was raised in Texas, but moved to Florida a couple years back and would not change that decision for anything. I love the sand, the sea, and the natural springs around us! And I love that almost every day in sunny Florida is summer!

2. When did you start writing?

I began writing at 19, however my first manuscript is hidden in a dark corner among the dust bunnies and dog hair. I really buckled down with my writing, however, in 2004. It took me eight years, but I finally hammered out a manuscript I was proud of.
My manuscripts since haven’t taken me near as long and since 2013, I have published five books and a short story with two more novels coming before the end of the year!

3. Why did you start?

I started because there were characters in my head that demanded to have their voices heard. They kept me up at night. And they came to life on the pages of my novels.
The characters are still quite pushy, but I’ve learned how to tamp down their eagerness so I can get a few hours of sleep each night.

4. What motivates you to keep doing what you’re doing?

I am motivated by the amazing people in the reader and author community. I’ve found some of the most amazing people and best friends because of my writing and I couldn’t imagine my life without them. I always look forward to the next signing, to meet so many new, friendly faces! I believe that the reader/author community is one of the best out there!
