Q: Have you ever fallen in love with one of your characters?
A: I don't think there's one I haven't fallen in love with. When I'm writing, I'm spending long hours with my characters. They become friends. I stress with them, hurt with them, and fall in love right along with them. And when the story ends, it's hard to tuck them away and know the connection is over. It has to be because it's time to start thinking about the next story.
Q: If you could have three wishes granted, what would you wish for?
A: Calorie-free cakes, candies, and cookies to go with my calorie-free lattes. A perfect memory for all the great things in life and the ability to forget some of the other experiences I've had.
Q: Who's more fun, bad boys or perfect gentlemen?
A: Oh I want a bad boy who looks like the perfect gentleman. I love a hero who can be ruthless in his pursuits, yet have a tender spot for the woman he loves.
Q: Do you believe the pen is mightier than the sword?
A: I think wounds inflicted by words, whether by the pen or spoken take longer to heal. They can fester and eat at the soul. I have the beautiful words of the Desiderata by Max Ehmann hanging by my workstation. Here is the link if you'd like to read it. http://www.desiderata.com/
Q: If you were a tool, what would people use you for?
A: I'd say I'm a widget. A Widget is an unnamed thing - a little device or mechanism, especially one whose name is unknown or forgotten. So either I'm a useless tool, or as I like to think, I just haven't figured out my purpose.
Q: What's the perfect romantic evening?
A: I love when my husband and I have run of the house without worry of interruption. I like to be home (not often with two little boys). I'm not flashy. I like to cook for my family, clean my house (okay not so much of this. But I like a clean house and the task falls to me) and I love just sharing space with my partner.
Q: What's something fans would find fascinating about you?
A: I'm not sure anything about me is fascinating. But I am a mess of contradictions. I grew in a religious home and married an atheist. I write naughty erotic romance but my favorite reruns on televisions are episodes of Little House on the Prairie. (I even own the seasons on DVD). My favorite season is winter, but I don't enjoy being out in the snow.
Q: If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would be the most essential for you?
A: Assuming I had food, water and shelter. My husband, my children, and the internet.
