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.
Do you write by the seat of your pants, or plot first?
*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 love quotes, one of my all time favorites; "Kindness Matters"
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.
