Author Q&A
1.       What would you consider to be your Kryptonite as an author?
Not following my routine. I love having a routine. I never ask myself, “Do you want to write this morning?” As soon as I finish my morning coffee, I go directly to my computer and get to work. Not having a routine would kill my productivity!

 2.       If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Don’t worry about what other people think. When I was younger, I had a confidence problem and I worried all the time about my hair and makeup, shoes and fingernail polish, and, of course, my books. Now, I do what I want, dress as I want…I like to think I’m a trendsetter here in my small city. J But most of all I write the stories in my heart.

3.       What book do you feel is under-appreciated? How about overrated?
I wrote a book HER SUMMER WITH THE MARINE that’s about a heroine who returns to her small town because her father has early onset Alzheimer’s.  He runs a funeral home, and she has to take over the family business. It’s funny…but oh so poignant as she not only confronts her past, but also is losing her beloved father by degrees as his memory leaves him. All that happens as she falls in love with her former high school nemesis.

People who read the book raved about it. Unfortunately, it didn’t sell well, as it was an ebook and at that time ebooks were just finding their audience.

I’d love to see that book have a revival.

 As for a book that’s overrated…I’ve read a few that left me saying, Meh. Whatever. But usually most books that I read I enjoy.

 4.       Favorite childhood memory involving books?
When I was about 10 or so, the bookmobile would arrive in the little town near our small farm every other Tuesday. I’d walk the mile and a half into town so I could get myself two books and a mystery for my mom.

Books, love of reading, was the one thing I had in common with my mom. There were eleven kids in my family so having that special thing to bond over with her was probably one of life’s greatest gifts to me. Especially now that she’s gone.

5. Did you want to be an author when you grew up?
From the time I was five and watched an old Bob Hope movie about a writer I KNEW that was what I wanted to be when I grew up. LOL

 6. If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Observant. Funny. Trustworthy. OR Lover Of Cake.

 7. What’s one movie you like recommending to others?
50 FIRST DATES. It’s the perfect high-concept romance.

 8. If you could own any animal as a pet, what would it be?
I love cats. Always have. My current cat, Sophia Maria Lolita Conchita Chiquita Banana was a yard warrior in her youth. She kept the rodents to a minimum in the entire neighborhood, but she loved me as if I was her mother. She’s older now and can’t quite chase chipmunks…but she still looks at me with love in her eyes.

 9.  How long, on average, does it take you to write a book?
Six weeks for the draft, two weeks for revisions. I used to be faster, but I love giving readers a really good story, something that I’ve put thought into. After 70 books for HQ and various other publishers, I don’t get many off-the-cuff ideas…I really have to think things through. LOL

 10. How do you select the names of your characters?
I name my characters as I go. I more or less try out a name for a few chapters and if it doesn’t work, I replace it. The name has to fit the character so the more I know the character, the more chance I’ll get it right

11. If you were the last person on Earth, what would you do?
This is a great question. First, I might think I had died and gone to heaven because I love silence and solitude. Then I’d figure out how to break into buildings so I could have access to the library and food. Then I’d pretty much eat and read. LOL

12. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
The obvious advice is read. Read. Read. Read. Then find yourself, your center, your message, so you can find your place. Also, learn the craft. Readers are so smart. If your sentences are bad and your grammar’s not polished, they will know. But more than that, the better handle you have on craft the better you will express yourself in your stories. A good understanding of syntax goes a long way. J

 13. What book do you wish you had written?
Anything by Nora Roberts…but I feel like I should have written THE FIRST WIVES CLUB and THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA. I KNEW those characters. I should have thought of both of those first. LOL

 14. Tell us 10 fun facts about yourself!
I’m not sure there are ten fun things about me but here goes…

1.       I’m one of 11 kids.

2. I never look the same. I have gained and lost and regained and relost hundreds of pounds. LOL I’m so good at it it’s like a hobby.

3.       I took one look at my husband and KNEW I was going to marry him.

4.       I am a terrible golfer but I love it.

5.       I love reading the Bible because it reminds me that people haven’t changed at all over the millennia.

6.       I cannot cook…though I really wish I could.

7.       I would love to learn to play piano.

8.       I love to teach writing and I’m working on a writing How-To.

9.       I crochet and my two adorable grandsons love crochet blankets so I’ve been busy.

10.   I wish hats would make a come back in the U.S. I see all the lovely hats at royal events and I have to admit I’m jealous.

And here is a bonus #11…I adore my cat. There has never been nor will there ever be a prettier, smarter or more devoted feline. LOL

 15.   If you could live in any time period, what would it be and why?
I like right now. We have just enough technology that life is fairly easy but not so much that the machines rise up and eliminate us. Our medicine is fairly good. Our transportation is fabulous. Plus, with YouTube you can learn anything or see anywhere. It is a great time to be alive.

16.   What is your favorite genre to read?
It’s kind of a toss up between romance and sci fi. When I find a good sci fi romance I’m in heaven. LOL
