Describe the perfect vacation.
The perfect vacation I already had was to England and Wales
in part because I spent a night in two different castles. One (Amberley) was
more medieval, and the other (Thorndale) more modern, but both were amazing
inside and out. I also visited some of King Edward I’s castles (Beaumaris,
Conwy, Caernarfon and Harlech), designed to be a day’s march apart. The
Snowdonia region in Wales is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been. The
perfect vacation I hope to have would be to Italy, including Siena and Cinque
Terre.
Tell us about your
favorite toy as a child.
This will date me, but my favorite toy was my Beautiful
Crissy doll. She had the most amazing, shiny red hair you could make longer or
shorter. I liked her hair at its longest, probably because I had black, curly
hair that was hard to control and so often kept short. I just loved her hair.
What are your hobbies?
Two day jobs (writing and acting) can keep me pretty busy. I
enjoy singing in a symphony chorus. We usually perform major works such as
Poulenc’s Gloria or Orff’s Carmina Burana, but just completed a Rodgers and
Hammerstein concert at Chicago’s Orchestra Hall featuring approximately 200
singers, 70 musicians and 8 soloists. Our maestro received permission from to
customize a program of 23 songs. In season, we rehearse one night a week.
When you read for pleasure,
what kind of books do you choose?
I choose historicals and historical fiction, mostly, though
I also enjoy paranormals. I also want to read friends’ books, but it’s hard to
keep up! Right now I’m reading a friend’s historical fiction set around the
Chicago Fire, and another friend’s contemporary. While I still prefer an actual
book when possible, the Kindle app has made it easy to acquire and carry around
a “stack,” so I flit between books more than I used to.
What kinds of things do
you read when you’re researching a new book?
It depends on the genre I’m writing. For medievals, I’ve
collected more than 200 books on 15th century England. There’s great
information on the Internet, but it’s rare to find the level of detail I need.
In my current release, Follow Your Heart, the heroine is a stained glass
painter, so I had a great time seeking out books on medieval stained glass and
the techniques used to create it. If I’m writing a contemporary, I go online to
research the characters’ careers or review notes from an interview I’ve done.

About the Book

Title Follow Your Heart
Genre Historical
Author Ruth Kaufman
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Strong-willed Joanna Peyntor has
two uses for a man: to pose for a stained glass window design or to commission
her skills. But when her brother conspires to ruin her reputation, she concedes
to a third: a husband to help save her glass-painting workshop. 
Sir Adrian Bedford must marry
without delay on his quest to redeem his family name and lands. Who’d accept an
impoverished former nobleman insisting upon an unusual stricture in their
marriage contract? But Joanna, a woman striving to succeed in a man’s world,
agrees that discussions of a personal nature are prohibited.
When irresistible attraction makes their marriage of
convenience inconvenient, will his dangerous secrets keep them from following
their hearts?
