6 Questions with…E.S. McMillian

Questsions with....1 (1)

This week we have the lovely E.S. McMillian here to answer 6 questions.  She is featured in several anthologies and just stepped out on her own recently.  Congratulations!!  Without further ado, here is ES McMillian in her own words……


1.  What comes first the plot or the characters?
For me, the plot comes first.  Once I have a story idea in mind then the character names and personalities come.
2.  How do you come up with the titles to your books?
My titles just kind of hit me.  Usually, they come as I am writing the story.
3.  When did you consider yourself an author?
I first considered myself an author September 15, 2018.  The day my first solo short story ~ The Weekend Getaway was published.
4.  Where do you get your inspiration from?
Life is my inspiration.  I write what I know and feel.  All my stories have a touch of truth to them hidden somewhere 😉
5. Does one of the main characters hold a special place in your heart? If so, why?
Leah (from The Weekend Getaway) will also be special to me.  I put a lot of my frustrations and yes desires into her.  She is the person that I wish I were brave enough to be.
6. How many plot ideas are just waiting to be written? Can you tell us about one?
I have more plot bunnies floating around in my head than I can count.  I am working on a bunch of short stories for some upcoming anthologies.  I also have some fuller length stories plotted and planned for 2020.  One thing that I can tell you is that we will see Leah and Dean (from the Weekend Getaway again.)  They will be back and getting away to Escape, Colorado to figure out what the future holds for them 😉
