Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G

Everything in his life is planned. How’d she get on his agenda?

Quint learned long ago that in Hollywood everything’s make believe, including love, but can’t resist struggling scriptwriter Chrystelle. She’s entirely too fascinating, but he doesn’t want her–he wants her script.

Chyrstelle wishes she could spend Christmas with her grandmother in Colorado. When Quint offers to produce her TV series, she’s thrilled, but he wants to change everything. The battle begins. Then Chrystelle’s grandmother takes ill, Chrystelle knows where she belongs and hops the next bus home.

What she hadn’t expected was Quint on her front porch, and not to wish her a Merry Christmas. He wants her script–on his terms, of course.


What’s your favorite book?

Anything by Phyllis A. Whitney, Victoria Holt and Jean Plaidy

What’s a genre you want to write?…

I love reading historicals, but I’ll leave the hard work to those industrious authors who like research.

Best writing advice you ever heard?…

Keep writing. With so many books being published, the best advertising for an author is another book.

What’s the title and genre of your first book, and where can we find it?

Prelude and Fugue. An oldy but a goody. As a pianist, I wrote this based on some of my experiences, but this book is more fact than fiction and was fun to write. It’s available on Amazon:


Coffee or tea? I like them both

Sit down dinner or drive through? Sit down. I love conversation and a nice dinner.

Fold laundry immediately or let it sit? Actually, my husband does the laundry.

Unload dishwasher right away or use dishes from it? I unload it only because does the cooking and we have lots of dishes.

Driving for pleasure or avoid driving anywhere? If I didn’t have to drive, that would be fine with me, but my husband would be antsy so we find ourselves exploring whenever we can.

Talk or text? Talking is nice. I hate when I have cut a conversation short, though.

Emoji or smilie? If the emoji is available, I’ll use it. With all those symbols, I could never figure out how to make my own.
