What a lucky man her husbands is! Do you research "those" scenes in your book personally?
*Sorry, but no-most are not. Yes, my hubby is a lucky man, but not because of ' those" scenes that I write.  It's fiction, people. Would you expect a thriller author to write great murder scenes by personal experience?

So, where do you get your story ideas?

*I'm a people watcher and I listen to music. Sometimes I see a painting, an odd bit of research or news, or maybe a photo and wonder, " what if?"  The muse taps me on the shoulder quite unexpectedly at times!

Of all the books you've written, which is your favorite?

* Impossible to say. Books are like children, I heard an author once say. It's true. You have aspects about each that stick with you. My own standard is if I don't fall in love with my hero, or like my heroine by the end of the book, then no one else will either.

Are you a pantser or plotser?

*I have done both. Depending on the project.

Do you have authors that have influenced you?

* Absolutely, and some I haven't even read their books;)  If you were to ask, do I have auto buy authors, I'd have to say even that goes in spurts. Examples would be, the Night Slayer serires by Robin T Popp, anything by Anne River Siddons, Judi McCoy's Dog Walker Mysteries, Alexandra Sokoloff's novels--then I get into single title favorites like, Stephen Kings, The Shining, Christina Skye's Christmas Knight, English Through the Ages, Edgar Allen Poe, Stories in Stone--and I love research books! I'm as eclectic in my reading as I am in my music.

Do you listen to music when you write?

* I sometimes do. Depending on the mood I'm trying to set for a scene or if I'm just trying to relax my brain to go with the creative flow. Other times, I prefer the quiet, or the sound of the wind in the trees or the rain on my windowpane.

What is your favorite time of day?

*Twilight. Long before it became a movie.

Do you have a favorite quote?

*I have buckets of fav quotes! I am a 'quote' junkie. But the oldest quote taped to my computer monitor is "The Greatest Risk is Not Taking One."

Name something about you that most people don't know.

* I often write my first draft in long hand and polish as I type it in the computer. Contrary to most authors, my thoughts flow faster/ easier when I write, than when I type--at least in the first draft. I also use only classic Black Bic pens when I write.
