- If someone looked at your browsing history right now, what kind of things would we find.
Research in 1800’s about PTSD, war, rape, marriage ceremony and buying houses. Also, info on New York, mobsters, private investigating agencies and police procedures. I’ve also been looking into a family vacation to Niagara Falls, and info for masquerade themed birthday parties.
- If you could write about any subject that is near and dear to your heart, what would it be and why?
My first love is historical romance novels. I love watching people overcome obstacles to be together and transporting me into an era of long ago teaches me about the past.
- Do you have a favorite song, album, or playlist to write to?
No. I typically don’t listen to music while writing. I have a hard time concentrating when songs are playing. I start to sing along and forget what I want to write. I could never do homework while listening to music either. I must have a very short attention span!!
- What was the first thing you did after the debut of the first book you wrote?
Had a glass of wine to celebrate!!
- What is your biggest pet peeve?
When my husband moves things around in the kitchen. I really had a fit when he rearranged the furniture in the living room while I spent 2 weeks in Ohio with my dad before he passed away. I’m a little OCD when it comes to placing things and after coming home from my dad’s funeral and seeing my room rearranged – I was ready to file for divorce!!
- Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Wine and chocolate.
- What was your favorite book as a teen?
I don’t think I can remember back that far. LOL!! I did read romance novels and Kathleen E. Woodiwiss was my favorite author.
- If an aspiring writer asked for advice what would you tell them?
Don’t give up on your dream! I spent 10 years sending my novels out to publishers and agents before doing it myself. I’ve never been happier and I’m living my dream. There are many ways to achieve your dream, don’t let others hold you back.
Optional questions 🙂
I love most foods so picking a favorite is too hard. However, we have a German exchange student staying with us for the year so right now I’ve been doing a lot German cooking!!
Favorite Drink (alcoholic/non-alcoholic)
Non alcoholic pina colada, strawberry daiquiri and margaritas. I also have some awesome recipes for champagne punch & sangria spritzer.
Sweet or Salty snacks?
Hmmm. I’d say more sweet but sometimes I want salty and sometimes I want both!!
