Q: What inspired you to take on the legends of the gods?
A: I have loved mythology for a long as I can remember. I think it might have something to do with Clash of the Titans, which was one of my favourite movies when I was younger.
Q: How do you juggle the demands of family and career versus writing?
A: I'm still trying to figure all that out. I do a lot of writing after my girls are in bed. My husband and I watch a lot of our favourite shows on DVD, that way we can watch them when we want. He's incredibly supportive, so when I am brain deep in a story he takes care of everything else.
Q: What do you do when you aren't writing?
A: I taste wine for a living. Yes, it's a hard job but someone needs to do it. *G* I'm also a mother to two girls, and wife to an incredibly supportive husband (who is a much better cook than me, thank the gods).
Q: Are you a pantster or plotter?
A: I always considered myself a pantster. I got to know my characters by writing about them and seeing what they would do. Lately, I have found myself plotting out my stories a bit more. Can you be both?
Q: How do you go from an idea to a finished book?
A: A lot of wine? Just kidding. I don't write in sequence. Usually I have an idea of what I want to happen in a story and I'll start by writing out those scenes and then fill in what happened between.
Q: Five items on a desert island. What would you bring?
A: My MP3 player. (I love music but can't sing a note. If I was on a deserted island, I could sing as long and loud as I want and no one would complain.)
B.O.B. (I'm all alone with no interruptions? Why not?)
Paper. Pencils. Lots of bottles. (I have to get my next book to my publisher somehow.)
Q: What do you find the sexiest thing about a man?
A: Upper arms. Not bulging muscles by any means, but when a man lifts something (or swings a sword) and you can see the muscle definition? Yummy, love it.
