Q & A With the Author:
Writers of America. If you write children’s or teen books, I recommend SCBWI which stands for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Other options are to find a local Nanowrimo group; from what I know, some offer workshops, others only give encouragement to write a book in a selected month. You could go online and enter local writer’s group in your search engine, and see what comes up. Then visit them a few times to see if you are a good fit with them before you join.
- I like cats–kittens are even more fun.
- I am a harpist and I teach harp lessons.
- Every morning after I get the children off to school, I go for a walk. (At least, that’s always the goal)
- I hate spiders. HATE. With a passion.
- Due to moves in my childhood, I attended 9 different schools. Being the new kid isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
- I love cheesecake just as much as I love chocolate–chocolate cheesecake is even better. Caramel is a close second. Caramel-chocolate cheesecake, anyone?
- Currently I’m juggling: a YA dystopian aka speculative fiction, a YA historical paranormal, book 4 of my Rogue Hearts Regency series, and a new Regency trilogy.
- I am majorly claustrophobic, which is exactly why, when I had to give my super-warrior weapons master, Kai Darkwood in my fantasy Queen in Exile, some flaw or fear, I chose claustrophobia for his–I understand it.
- I love to ballroom dance. LOVE.
- I also love bodies of water of any kind–ocean, river, lake, stream, waterfall, backyard garden pond. It just does something for my soul. This is partly why we recently moved from the desert to Washington State. I even love water when it’s falling from the sky. Mermaid, anyone?
