1 – What’s your latest book about?
My current Work In Progress is the 4th book in my Alexis Stanton Series. I’m having a lot of fun writing it, but it has turned out to be quite the challenge. It’s about a strong woman who works for a Private Military Corporation. She has all kinds of adventures and gets to kick some butt along the way.
2 – Who’s your favorite author and/or what’s your favorite book?
What day of the week is it? Actually, I don’t have a favorite. There are so many authors that have touched my life with what they’ve written. I don’t even have a favorite genre. If the book can transport me to another world or time, I’m going to love it.
3 – What’s your favorite aspect of writing?
My favorite aspect of writing is creating a world of my own. I love exploring new places, meeting new people and jumping from airplanes without any of the risk.
4 – Any good anecdotes about being a writer?
I’m sitting here agonizing over this question. Anecdote – a short and amusing or interesting story. I have a few anecdotes for other subjects but when it comes to writing, the stories are all just ego boosters for myself. Writing has been one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done in my life. That is neither amusing or all that interesting to anyone but me.
5 – What was the most helpful writing advice you’ve ever received?
I like “Write for yourself.” I don’t know where that came from but it’s possible it’s a variation of one of my favorite quotes I’ve come across about writing. "...write as if you are a reader. The great joy in writing is the same joy as in reading: the discovery, the desire to go on to the next page and find out what will happen, and the sound of the voices." Stuart M. Kaminsky
