1) What is the best and worse thing you have learned from an editor/agent?
The BEST thing I learned from a NY editor – They liked my wring.
The WORST thingI learned from a NY editor – They didn’t like the style of the story
2) What is your typical day?
I start my day with a cup of coffee and feeding our dog. After the coffee is consumed, I take the dog for a walk. After I get ready, I’m off to my day job, then it’s home, another walk with the dog and the hubby… Finally, after dinner, it’s time to write!
3) What do you read while in the midst of a project? Or don’t you?
I read sometimes when I get writer’s block, but mostly to relax. Usually, I choose some kind of romance. There are so many authors I love.
4) What do you do with a paperback once you’ve read it?
I keep the ones signed by other authors I know, but the ones that are not signed, I donate.
5) Are you nervous about friends reading your book?
I was when I first started writing but I’m not anymore.
6) What things inspire you to write? Location, music, film or even in a book?
Actually, going to the CTRWA monthly meeting really inspires me. It’s such a wonderful, supportive group to be a part of.
7) What’s next for you?
I’m working on a couple of different projects right now. A LOVE WORTH SAVING – Book 2 Forever Yours Trilogy, and a single title contemporary.
