 Why are you a writer?

Out of sheer luck. In 1995 we had a lovely baby girl and no cable t.v. She was so peaceful and slept a lot while I was at home on maternity leave. I started to write creatively and then I couldn’t stop. Occasionally I wonder how things would have turned out if we’d had cable t.v..

What do you love to read in your spare time?

Spare time? What is that? I read a variety of fiction and non-fiction and the on-line newspaper. I love the ability to download ebooks so I have a library at my fingertips depending on what I feel like reading.

What are three things that you do that are important to your career as a writer (aside from actually writing the book)?

Networking and keeping company with fellow writers

Meditative breathing

Refining my public speaking skills

What are three of your top goals in your writing career?

To be widely recognized.

To hone my craft to such a point that readers cannot put my books down.

Enjoying the process of being creative.

What is your favourite first line ever from a novel?

“I am Ishmael.” Moby-Dick

What is your go-to power energy snack when writing?


51pZagJtHdLWhat was a book that made you go “aha!” and why? (fiction or non fiction)

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I read it in Grade four. I was a competitive child and it was the largest book I could find, mid-way through I couldn’t put it down. The characters Rhett and Scarlett were unforgettable and I can still envision some of the scenes in my head decades later.

How do you cope with bad or nasty reviews?

Bad reviews are upsetting but in time I analyze them and try to improve my writing after singlehandedly devouring a bag of Gummies.

What do you listen to when you write?

It depends on my mood. I love calming and meditative music when I’m writing romance and upbeat music when I’m writing action or murder scenes.

Cats or dogs?

Dogs hands down. I have cats but they sleep a lot and when they are awake they look at me with suspicion.

  1. I love your comment about starting to write because you had no cable. I too had no cable for many years. My first book was written during that time 😉 I still write better without the tv on. Congrats on having two books out!

  2. “I have cats but they sleep a lot and when they are awake they look at me with suspicion.”

    I love that line. It’s so true. I’d say I was a dog person too but my sister and I shared a cat. We didn’t live together. It was her cat to start with, but I had a mouse infestation so she loaned me Georgette. That cat went back and forth between us for years until my sister got a dog. Georgette just showed up at our back door (we lived in the same complex by then) and moved in.

    1. fantastic story. I have so many cat stories. My sister had a white Siamese cat that kept hissing when Knots Landing was on. I kid you not. I can’t remember the cats name, but I remember his dislike of my fav t.v. show in the 1980s.
