Q: Can you tell us what a typical writing day for you is like.

I don’t have a typical writing day. When I have any time at all, I just run to the laptop and write. :) In the winter when all the hours at work are cut a little, I might have a day that I allocate to a story that’s nagging me to write it. Then I sit down and write until I realize I’m starving or thirsty and my dogs are starting to prowl around the study wanting to go for a walk.

Q: What do you enjoy most about writing?

My characters and setting becoming so real to me.

Q: What do you like the least?

Marketing. It’s so time consuming and quite soul destroying when you’d rather be writing. :)

Q: Would you like to see any of your books as movies?

None of them. I’d be there fussing about the script staying true to the book, or the casting.

Q: What things do you like to do to relax?

I find writing relaxing, but I also like to get out into the countryside near where I live. I enjoy visiting the historic places too. I read, watch movies and I love music. I’m often singing along with something as I drive.

Q: Do you have another job as well as writing?

Yes, I have to. I work for an antiques emporium. It’s very tourist driven, so right now I have late night hours and work all weekend and holidays. I do shifts, usually start about midday or two in the afternoon, and work through until ten or eleven. It means I’ve taken a hiatus from writing so my stories mentioned above are waiting for me. I can feel them there wanting to be written.

Q: If you could have one super power in your existence, what would it be?

It would have to be healing.

Q: If money were not an object, where would you most like to live?

I live in the country where I want to, maybe I’d move down the coast to Cornwall or Devon, closer to the ocean, which I love.

Q: What kind of car would you have if money was no object?

I have the car I want. I’m a Jeep person and always drive them.

Q: What’s your favorite color?

I have two I love, oh wait three, blue, purple and green.

Q: Can you think of a song or piece of music that could be your theme tune?

It changes for me every time someone in an interview asks, right now it’s The Eagles' "Tequila Sunrise." That’s because I usually see the sunrise after arriving home very late at night, editing, networking, or real life stuff, like my laundry, and then I flop to sleep for a few hours. Check out my dark shadows.
