Tell us a little about yourself.I am the mother of two and grandmother of 10, soon to be a great. My husband and I traveled in our RV full time until last November when we bought a house. I taught school for 34 years and began writing in my 60's. I love the Lord and couldn't go one day without Him.
Tell us three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.
Were you an avid reader as a child? What did you read?
As a child or teenager, did you ever dream of being an author?
What is the quirkiest thing you have ever done?
What is your favorite genre to read?
Share something about your day-to-day life that might help a reader to feel as though they know you a little better.
When did you first begin writing, and why do you write still?
I first began writing in January, 2010. I continue to write because the Lord won't let me stop. Seriously, I have so many stories in my head and such a strong desire to get them written down, I can't stop.
How many books do you have published and where can they be found?
Tell us about your latest book.The Way Home whose name is soon to be changed, is the story of a Christian woman who falls in love with a handsome accountant she believes would make the ideal Christian husband. In reality, she discovers he belongs to a non-Christian cult, but it's too late, she loves him and doesn't want to give him up.
Tell us about the journey to getting this book published.
What inspired you to write this particular book?
How long did you write before you sold your first book?
What are you working on right now?
Where do you get ideas for your books?
How do you choose names for your characters?
In three words describe your style of writing.
How do you get to know your characters?
Are you a plotter, a pantster, or somewhere in between, and can you elaborate on your answer? I am mostly a plotter. I have to begin knowing my characters and the basic events of the plot. But often, new ideas will pop into my head after I'm finished with the first draft and I don't hesitate to add them to the story. Also, my wonderful critique partners give me ideas which help me change the story for the better.
What are you favorite themes to write about?
What is your writing schedule and where do you write?
Do you have to juggle writing with a job, family responsibilities or other obligations? How do you balance it?
Does your faith affect your writing? How?
Why do you keep writing?
Do you put yourself into your main character, or do you find yourself borrowing from family or friends as your characters develop?
Is there any scene in your book that came from a real-life happening?No, not entirely. I may use some real-life occurrences but change them so no one will recognize the situation or the people involved.
If you could interview any character in one of your books what might that character say? Why?
What would you be doing if you weren’t writing?
I'd probably be sightseeing with my husband in our RV.
Have you won any awards with your writing?
Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
What is the coolest, wackiest, most risk-taking thing you’ve ever done?
What is the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to you?
Read, read, read. The books on craft as well as books in your genre. Make good friends with your critique partners.
