So, let's get started...
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a wife, mom and grandmother. And a writer of Christian Suspense, though some say it’s more Women’s Fiction.
Which writer inspires you?
My mother was a reporter and she was my first inspiration.
In later years, I read a lot of Mary Higgins Clark books, and loved her “whodunit” style.
In recent years though, Davis Bunn, a fine Christian author of many genres, has inspired me greatly.
Have you written other books? If so, what are the titles?
Stella’s Plea is my first, and currently, only published novel. However I do have a true short story published in an anthology by Oak Tara. The book is called Falling In Love With You.
My second novel is with my editor right now with a tentative publishing date of November 2014. And I’m currently working on a third. So stay tuned for these.
How much research, if any, do you do when writing a book?
A lot. I love to learn and write about it. My favorite quote is Benjamin Disraeli’s
“The best way to become acquainted with a subject is to write about it. ”
Why do you write?
First, because I have a story to tell.
Second, I always loved to write and feel called to do so.
Where do you get your ideas from?
Anywhere and everywhere. God inspires me through books, TV news, or even in a store, overhearing people talking.
Do you use an outline, plot, or just see where the story takes you?
I never outline or plot. I start with one idea, and develop is as I go. I never know where I’m going until I get there.
Do you ever get writers block? If so how do you overcome it?
I seldom do, but walking away from my writing for a bit usually does the trick. Sometimes for a couple of hours or even for a day or two.
How do you market your book?
So many different ways. Social media, mostly FB and Twitter. I also use but less often, G+, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. I will use promotional sites, most of which are free, but I do pay for some promotional advertising.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love to travel whenever I can and usually aim at Christian writers conferences.
