Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
Yes, I do! Humorous romantic mysteries and romantic comedy short stories.
How do you come up with ideas?
With short stories, sometimes, people say things and my head goes bing! and the story takes off. It is so gratifying and fun when that happens. I did take a short story class early on and we were challenged to study a picture and create a story from it. It worked!
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
I love when the story is roughed and I can get to work to make it better. I’ll finesse until I’m sick of it.
When did you write your first book?
I wrote my first book about fourteen years ago after a friend challenged me. Handsome was floored.
Leather or lace? Cotton, lolol
Black or red? Wear black, love red
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton
Ocean or mountains? Mountains
City life or country life? City life
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home
Dogs or cats? Both!
