Q: Tell us about yourself.
A: Let's see. I'm double jointed, I'm a math geek, and if you don't believe me I'll do a spreadsheet to prove it to you. But most of all, I love to tell stories. Oh, and I'm funny. LOL. One of my goals in life is to make people laugh.
Q: How do you get in the mood to write?
A: I'd say it isn't as much a mood as a need. I have no less than ten story ideas floating in my head at one time, and when dialogue and scenes build up, they need to escape. I merely sit down and let them out. I guess it's fair to say I'm always in the mood to write.
Q: Do you write every day? Stick to a rigid schedule?
A: I try to write every day, but life gets in the way (hey, check it out, I made a rhyme. Hee, hee!). I don't stick to a rigid writing schedule unless I'm on a deadline. If something is due, I put butt in chair and fingers on keyboard until I'm finished.
Q: Where do your story ideas come from?
A: This is the question I get asked most often as a writer. My story ideas come from absolutely everywhere. I never know when a newspaper article, movie, television show, commercial, or a conversation between strangers ahead of me in a line will spark an idea for a story.
For example, I thought up the premise of Just A Kiss while watching The Tonight show with Jay Leno.
Q: What is your favorite way to relax?
A: Relax? Is that even an option? I must write! Okay, okay in between writing books, I love to read and I adore going to the movies. I also watch way too much television since my cable company invented a way to record shows to watch later. Occasionally, I hang out with my family. They are pretty cool and very funny because a good sense of humor is a strict requirement in my household.
