Goodreads asked Lisa McCubbin:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Lisa McCubbin There are so many "best" things about being a writer, I can't name just one! I love the fact that I can work all day in my pajamas if I want; I love the people I meet through my research travels and during publicity tours; I love the creativity of starting with a blank page and turning it into a compelling story by finding the perfect words to describe a scene or evoke the emotions I want the reader to feel; I love being able to share a story that has never been told before. I see three phases to writing and I truly enjoy all three - the research; the writing; and the promotion. I'm lucky to be able to earn a living doing what I love.
