Tell us a little about yourself. How did your writing journey begin?
My “day job” is as a speech language pathologist so between that and writing, I guess I’m a language lover. I’ve always been a huge daydreamer, but my daydreams were stories with vivid characters and very specific story lines. One day as I approached my 40th birthday, it occurred to me that I should be writing my daydreams down. I did and I got hooked. I’ve been writing ever since.
How long did you write before you sold your first book?
I wrote for 15 years before I received my first traditional book contract but I self-published my first book and had two more print-on-demand books published before that.
Wow, that's patience! What book(s) are you reading, or have read lately?
Scarlett O’Hara, of course!
Of course! LOL! Now that you are published, do you still experience rejections? If so, how are these rejections different or similar to the ones you received before becoming published?
I do, but they are different in that once your writing and talent has been “validated” you can better understand that not every book is for every reader or every publishing company. Instead of assuming, I have no talent I assume that this book doesn’t appeal to that specific person or company.
Tell us a little about your latest release:
I didn’t really have to do much research for this particular book.
Tell us what new projects you’re working on.
I have a Christmas-themed suspense novella releasing in time for the holiday season, THE CHRISTMAS STALKING. Don’t you love that title? It’s about a country music star who is being stalked.
That IS a great title! Looking forward to it. Now, what is the one question you were afraid I would ask…and how would you answer?
I was afraid you’d ask why all my stories involve dead bodies! The answer is I’ll never tell!!
LOL! Okay, then answer this. Where can readers connect with you?
