Goodreads asked Jennifer Bowers Bahney:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Jennifer Bowers Bahney Keep asking yourself questions about your characters, settings, and actions, even when you think you've written all you can write. My publisher asked for 10,000 more words and I wasn't sure where I would get them until I started asking deeper questions about my characters' motivations, their physical surroundings, and even what the weather was like on the day of the crime. You'll be left with the most thorough picture possible and will truly be able to transport your readers.
