Hopes and wishes and holiday kisses…Sommerville holidays.
Story Blurb: Holiday Disaster: Days before Christmas, a librarian experiences plumbing issues and visits from Mr. Maintenance Man who isn’t nearly as jolly as Santa Claus.
The Littlest Angel: Two people. One ornament for the tree. Can a twosome find common ground and discover the true meaning of Christmas?
Holiday Handbag Extravaganza: Christmas Countdown is on! A hunk-a-licious customer pesters a boutique owner to locate a vintage handbag for his mother. Too bad the wedge between them is his sister, the meanest girl in town.
Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
I write romantic comedy mysteries (the Hattie Cook mystery series) and romantic comedy short stories.
How do you come up with ideas?…
Oh my! Every story is different. For “Holiday Disaster,” I really did have an incident when I was a single girl and dropped my contact down the drain. I had little money to buy a new one; so there was no choice but to call Mr. Maintenance Man. However, the guy wasn’t nearly as much fun as my fictional guy. In “The Littlest Angel” I based the story on a Christmas ornament a family friend gave my mom. In “Holiday Handbag Extravaganza,” I pay tribute to a favorite handbag designer, Enid Collins.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
Getting the story right. I work and work before it is edited and then work some more. I confess, I’m a slow writer.
When did you write your first book?…
I began writing sixteen years ago. Wow! Time has flown by.
Leather or lace? Leather-handbags. LOL
Black or red? Love red. Wear black.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton, preferably soft flannel.
Ocean or mountains? Mountains.
City life or country life? City life.
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home watching The Holiday Baking Championship with Handsome
Dogs or cats? Both!
