What motivates you to write?
The idea of two children in college is a pretty good motivator for any smart businesswoman and I’d be lying if I said money wasn’t a factor in my publishing decisions. But well beyond the finances, I want my children to see that consistent effort, perseverance, and dedication to a goal pays off.
I stay motivated to improving my craft because I have characters in my heart who want to share their adventure with readers.
What writing are you most proud of? (Add a link if you like)
While I’m proud of Justice Incarnate because it was my first published novel and equally proud of the other books in the series, Invasion of Justice, Veil of Justice, Tracking Shadows, and Shadows to Light, I am most proud of a small chapbook of poetry I wrote ages ago to honor my grandparents and their retirement community.
My grandparents, indeed their whole community, played an integral part of my upbringing. When I first began the endeavor that became my writing career, I wrote a series of poems and essays to express that gratitude. For years parts of that book were used in their marketing campaigns.
What are you most proud of in your personal life?
I’d have to go the mushy route and say my marriage of nearly twenty-three years and our two wonderful children makes me most proud, personally. Whenever life deals out something I struggle with or events make me doubt why I was put here, I look at my kids and know I did something right.
What books did you love growing up?
All of them! Well, not the horror genre so much, but I read a lot of everything. Little Women was a particular favorite among the classics. I still smile when I remember Mom reading it to me in the dining room after dinner on Sunday afternoons.
Who is your favorite author?
There are too many authors I enjoy to narrow it down to just one. From Clive Cussler to Debra Webb, Nora Roberts to Claudia Dain, J.K. Rowling to J.R.R. Tolkien, I have reasons they could all qualify as my favorite.
What book genre of books do you adore?
Historical romance novels are my guilty pleasure. I often wish I could write those, but I’ll leave it to the experts and savor them instead.
