Q&A With the Author:
1. Tell us about things you enjoy — what you do for fun or personal satisfaction besides writing?
I love to read of course! I also love to take long walks, work in my garden and plan vacations!
2. When did you first realize you were an author?
I guess when I published my first book, lol. I never really set out to be an author, but instead decided to give it a try. I enjoyed the challenge and from there just kept going.
3. Have you done anything writing-related, but besides actually writing your books, that seemed to get a lot of positive response? Something that encouraged you?
I got great praise for my writing while in college. It stuck in the back of my mind.
4. What is the thing you struggle with the most while writing? And how do you defeat it?
If it could only just be writing, sigh. The marketing, the newsletter, the promos, it all gets rather overwhelming.
5. What is the “message” of your writing?
My message is you can have a romance with strong emotion without all the sex. I don’t like reading books with a lot of description therefore I don’t write them either. I also like my female characters to be strong and independent.
6. Are your characters/stories/scenes, etc. based on anything in real life?
Absolutely! I always take from my life and add them into my stories. The trick is to figuring out which is real and which is fiction!
7. What are your future projects?
I’m finishing up book five of the Romance Across State Lines Series. I’ve also been invited to write a Christmas story for a small press. If things work out, I might write more for them. I have a big move coming up in the spring. We’re moving from California to South Carolina to be near our adult children and grandchildren. So, although 2019 promises to be a great year, I probably won’t be as productive in writing as last year. It’s all good though!
