If you could change something
about your first book, what would it be?
I changed the cover to Dare To Believe once and I’d change it
again. If you want to see the first cover, go to www.lasartor
and scroll down to the bottom of that first page. I’m not sure how I would change
it a third time, but I’d love to hear from the readers of the blog. Chime in. What
would you change from my current cover…also on the same website.
How do you cope with stress
as an author?
I go into my back yard which is an oasis for me. Pond, views
of the mountains, peace. I get away from the computer, and if I still want to write,
use the ancient tools of pencil and paper. While I love the computer, it can suck
you dry. Too many distractions, and too many things I should be doing as well as
writing, like promotion, emails, web-surfing…
Do things your family
or friends do ever end up in a book?
Parts of them do and parts of me. I saw a T-shirt
once that said, “Be careful what you say or you could end up in my book.”
True. So watch out J
Which of your books would
you recommend to someone who doesn’t normally read your genre, and why?
I was at a signing recently and was told by some of the readers
who’d stopped by that they don’t read romance. So I started thinking about my books
and really, they are a journey, not only of the main characters, but I try really
hard to take you someplace you may not know. My screenwriting comes in as I set
the scene, place you there. I’m told I’m good at it. So yes, it’s a love story,
but so much more. Now how do I tell you that? Thoughts, dear readers?
Imagine you get to go
on a dream vacation, but you have only one hour to pack and leave, and it starts
as soon as you finish this interview. What will you take with you and where will
you go?
Shorts, bathing suit, sunscreen and my credit cards. Any island
where there is sun, sand, palm trees and blue, blue water. Let’s go now. Dare To
Believe is set both in Hawaii and Colorado. Two of my favorite
What is your favorite
holiday and why?
Christmas is. Which is why I HAD to write Be Mine This Christmas
Night. I love the magic, hope, peace and goodwill of the season and wish it could
last longer, like all year. Wouldn’t peace to all and hope for a better tomorrow
be a good thing?
Where were you at midnight,
on December 31st when the new century started?
Fun question. At home with my husband, waiting for a calamity
to befall the bank I was part of. I was on the Y2K team. We were extremely prepared,
but YAY, nothing!!
Please underline which statement is more like you:
“I am a vacation spa because I am laid back and relaxed.”
“I am a ten-countries in ten-days tour vacation, because
I do things as fast as possible.”
Both honestly. But If I had to pick…nope, can’t do it.

Please complete the sentences

I love pizza with mushrooms, onions, bell peppers-any color
and lots of cheese.
I’m always ready for wine and pasta, a good walk and a chat
with my best friend.
When I’m alone, I love to read, do cross stitch and play the
You’d never be able to tell, but I can be a very shy person.
If I had a halo it would be gold
with diamonds.
If I could win the lotto I’d set up a literacy foundation.
I can never scuba dive again because I’m terrified
of drowning, but love to swim.
