Q: What kind of writer are you? Organized, disorganized or a little of both?
A: I'm tried and true fly by the seat of my pants writer, so therefore I couldn't even be remotely called organized. LOL. When a story idea tickles my fancy, I usually just run with it. Sometimes it's a plot, a character, or a title that won't let go. One of my most recently completed manuscripts was a title that latched on to me.
As far as my desk goes, well...um...I don't think I should go there. I'm always having to dig through my paperwork in search of some piece of information or reference.
Q: What genre do you write and where do you set your stories?
A: I'm a contemporary girl. I like straight contemporary and romantic suspense. I bounce between the two of them. So far all of my books have been set in Montana where I live. Montana still seems to hold the mystique of the wild west, cowboys, and rugged mountain men.
Contemporaries are my favorite books to read, so that fact determines what I love to write. I do have an idea for a historical western (hot cowboys). I have a strong feeling I'll give in and write the story one of these days.
Q: Do you like to write to music?
A: I love music. I play my radio really loud while driving. Not so loud that it disturbs other drivers. But no, I never listen to music when I write. I do know many writers need to have their music playing in the background. No, television, no music. I prefer silence. I can concentrate easier.
Q: Do you have a favorite actor or musician you would like to spend the day with? And what would the two of you do?
A: That's a tough question because I have a list of actors I would gladly spend the day with. Okay, there's just something about Richard Gere. The man oozes sex appeal. I wouldn't mind spending the day with Richard on a secluded tropical beach. Wading in the the warm, aqua water and talking for hours. Besides, being sexy, the man is intelligent and very deep. A kiss would be nice, too. Who can forget Pretty Woman?
Q: Do you think ten years from now you will still be writing?
A: I know I will. Creating characters and composing stories is now an integral part of me. Some times I worry after I have finished a book, I won't have another idea, but some how the ideas and characters just keep coming.
