Q: How long have you been writing romance?
A: I think I wrote my first romance at age 14, but I don't remember much about it. After many years of writing for children and young adults, I started writing erotic romance in January 2009.
Q: Do you get writer's block?
A: I used to, but not any more. I'm too busy to be blocked. But if I get stuck it means I have to go back a page or two and figure out where I took a wrong turn.
Q: Do you plan your stories before you start writing?
A: No way. I tried that early in my writing career and found that I turned my characters into stick figures and my stories had no zing. All I have to have before I start writing is a working title, an idea who my main characters are and the opening sentence. Once I have an opening sentence I start writing and it all flows from there, though I have no idea where it's flowing from.
Q: What's your day job?
A: I am a home-based medical transcriptionist. That means I type doctor reports for a hospital 60 miles from my home.
Q: What do you do when you are not writing?
A: I haven't had much of that time lately, but usually I read, walk my 13 pound rat terror, Grizzly, and make hats. I make "baseball cover" size hats for babies, which I donate to a number of hospitals, and hats for kids of all sizes that I donate to a number of charitable organizations.
