Author Q&A

1.     What would you consider to be your Kryptonite as an author?

     Self-doubt. Every time I write a book, I think “How in the world did I write my last book?” There is always a point in the middle and end of the book where I end up in a hot panic thinking I will never finish it and that everyone will hate it.

2. Favorite childhood memory involving books?
Going to the library every summer for the summer reading program. I would get the maximum number of books you could check out each week, read them, and return them. Being turned loose in the library to get my books each week was like freedom, and I loved it!

3. Have you ever met anyone famous?
When I was a senior in college, I did a semester abroad in the UK. We visited Stratford-Upon-Avon and met several members of The Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company. At the time, Joseph Fiennes and David Tennant were actors in the company. They were so kind, and David Tennant was hysterical. It is a very fond memory.

4. How do you select the names of your characters?
Many times, the names come to me with the opening scene of the book which is usual dialogue and action filled. Otherwise, I use a book called Name Your Baby by Larenna Rule, which has names with their origins and meanings, to find character names.

5. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Listen to your instincts and do not worry about what everyone else’s writing journey is. Yours will be different and it should be. Embrace it!

6. What is your favorite genre to read?
Perhaps not a surprise, but historical romance and historical mysteries.

7. Do you listen to music when writing?
Yes, but usually only when I am brainstorming or stuck in a scene. I have music playlists for characters, scenes, and books, which helps me to get back on track if I am stuck.

8. If you could have a dinner party with 3 other authors, who would they be?
Jane Austen

PD James

Daphne Du Maurier

9. If you had to pick a celebrity to cast for your main character, who would it be?
I would love to cast Richard Armitage or Bertie Carvel as Rory McKenna in Eloping with the Laird. Either one of them would be fabulous as Rory! *swooning*

10. Would you ever write under a pseudonym?
I don’t think so, but never say never, right?

11. How do you choose your book covers?
All of my covers have been created by my publishers. I especially love my latest cover for Eloping with the Laird as it my first cover with both my hero and heroine together!

12. What’s one thing you’d like to say to your readers?
THANK YOU so much for your support and encouragement! Your messages, emails, and comments on posts make such a difference to me (and other writers), especially when I’ve had a day with a poor review or difficulty with a manuscript. You make my day!
