INTERVIEW QUESTIONS FROM MY EDITOR (March 18, 2018):
Describe yourself in one sentence.
I am an empathetic human being who resides in my imagination almost as much as I do in the real world.
What is the one writing rule that you live by?
A bit of humor sprinkled in can make even the most boring prose tolerable. (If that’s not an actual rule, it should be.)
What inspired you to writer?
After shaking my family tree, a few interesting characters fell out who wanted me to tell their stories.
Do you share any characteristics with one of your fictional characters? What are they?
I believe I do. Claire Brenner, from the Mari Mort Theater Trilogy is a bit of a wise-ass, but also a loyal friend.
Which book do you wish you had written (and why)?
Gone with the Wind…because it’s a sweeping tale that exposes all the flaws, as well as the goodness, in humanity. Our choices — not our history, religion, ethnicity, etc. are what separate us. (Also, I’d be rich from the sale of the movie rights, character dolls, and book royalties.)
