Q: Where do you get your ideas for a book?
A: People watching inspires me. Lake Michigan. In the mall. The doctor’s office. I see people and if they catch my attention I create a life in my mind for them.
Q: What does your family think about you writing erotica?
A: My husband likes it. And my adult children are very supportive. They are also my worst critics. So when I let my characters get out of hand, the kids tell me to put them back where they belong. I confess that I giggle when I send them certain chapters to review for me. Ha! Those are the fun days when I get the phone call, “Mom, where on earth did you learn that?”
Q: What is your writing schedule?
A: I am an insomniac. I write when everyone is in bed and it is quiet. I put on my headphones, listen to music, and write. Sometimes I am up all night writing. I'll take a break and bake something or toss a load of laundry into the washer then go back to my computer. My family gets grumpy when they hear me laughing while I am writing and they are sleeping.
Q: You often write about Lake Michigan, what’s the fascination?
A: All you have to do is watch a storm moving inland over the lake to answer that. In the winter, ice encases the lighthouses and the piers become thick sculptures. Simply beautiful.
Q: Do you only write series books?
A: No. I write what my characters tell me to write. Some of my secondary characters run amuck and wake me up during my four hour sleep sessions to tell me I need to write a story for them. That's when I end up with a series. I never start out thinking that this will be a series.
Q: Who is your favorite Author?
A: Dr. Suess, anything he wrote is golden to me.
Q: What is the most difficult thing about writing?
A: My characters begin to run in different directions as their personalities emerge. I am working on a full-length novel right now where the primary characters became secondary. And now? Well, I will let the readers decide.
