1. Give me one fact about you as an author that most people don’t know.
I am currently learning to play a mountain dulcimer. I’ve owned one since I was fourteen years old. I’ve decided to take some lessons to finally play the thing! :-)
2. What is the quality you like the most about your heroine?
I like that she stands up for herself and that she’s flexible enough to allow Field to be who he needs to be.
3. Being a writer is a busy life, isn’t it? I’m sure you’re working on something new to intrigue your readers. What’s in the works for you right now?
I am working on a novella that’s the sequel to Max my time travel romance published last year. It’s called Garrett. Next I will write the prequel novella for The Shopkeeper’s Widow series tentatively called The Dollmaker.
4. Do you have a set writing time every day or do you write in a more organic way?
I now have the ability to write everyday, during the day. I’m working on settling down a specific time everyday. For right now, I’m happy to write everyday, during the day.
5. What are the most number of words you’ve ever written in one day?
7,500. Boy was I tired after that, but I met my deadline!
