Q: What is your normal day like?
A. Since I’m still plugging away at the day job, my normal day starts with a 45-minute commute at 6:15. After nine hours of wrangling personnel and meetings, I make the same trip home. If I’m lucky, I write for an hour or so Monday to Friday. And then writing takes first place on the weekend. I have a strict policy against housework on any day of the week that ends in “day” but try to mop my house once a year whether it needs it or not.
Q: What are you writing now?
A. I have trouble focusing. I have two different stories in progress right now; both are contemporary and both feature inked heroes. This is kind of a fascination for me now. I watch too much New York Ink.
Q: What are your other hobbies?
A. I watch too much television. I might have conquered the world if DVR had never been invented. Alas, it’s too late now. I also knit and have a little dog that requires a disproportionate amount of attention.
Q: How did you celebrate having your first book accepted?
A. I was driving and inappropriately checking my email in a traffic jam. I had to pull over and focus on the message. When I was sure I read it correctly, I had to concentrate on catching my breath.
Q: Why did you start writing?
A. I’ve always been a dedicated reader, but I want more books that I love. I don’t see enough of the heroines I love so I decided to give it a try.
Q: Who are your favorite writers?
A. Ooh, tough one. I automatically buy (after obsessively counting down the days) new releases from Angela Knight, Julia Quinn, Jim Butcher, and a few zillion others. I love JK Rowling and have read Pride and Prejudice more than is probably healthy.
