If you could study any subject at a university what would it be? Probably psychology or criminal sciences. But it would all end up in the writing anyway.
If you could life anywhere in the world where would you go? I love mountains and beaches and New Orleans. Maybe the prefect place would be a nice motor home with a full tank. That would make it easy to go to all the places I love and see my kids too.
What genre of books do you adore? Oddly enough, regency historicals. I have never tried to write a regency but I dearly love to read them. I suppose it’s because it is so different from what I write that it feels like a little literary vacation.
Every writer has an idea of what a successful writing career is, what does success in writing look like to you? Because I tried for so long to fit into New York’s idea of what I should be writing, just being able to take part in the Indy Writer revolution is a gift to me. To be able to take a project from idea, through creation and publication, and into the readers hands it a miracle to anyone who has been disappointed or disillusioned by the old girls club of publishing in New York. This is success.
Can you share a little of your current work with us? Bliss is the first time this group of writers worked together for an anthology of this kind. The total concept was to follow a single, wonderful house, Bliss, though two centuries of its life. We span from the Civil War, through the sinking of the Titanic, the First World War, the Vietnam Era and modern day NASCAR. It was so much fun to write. And we are looking forward to revisit Bliss again.
Did you earn anything from writing this book, what was it? Because we had never written an anthology independently, I’d say I learned everything writing this book. It was amazing to watch this entire story unfold from five different writers, which very different styles and storytelling sensibilities. I loved it.
Will you write another book in this same genre? I will. The plans are in the works for a follow up tentatively titled, Holiday Bliss.
