Q & A With the Author:
1.     When did you write your first novel?
My mom asked me to write her a Regency romance
story because she was tired of the ones she’d read before. I had already written
a children’s novel, so I felt quite confident and I love the Regency era.
Coming from a background in publishing, it feels as if I have been writing
2.     What drove you to write / why did you
become an author?
I always wrote for fun, then I drifted into
editing and publishing, and then suddenly I was writing books. Once you have
started, it’s impossible to stop.
3.     How do you create your characters?
Interestingly, all I do is think of a
catchy title and the rest all sort of happens by itself, as if the characters
are waiting in the wings and just need me to create the title to bring them to
4.     What is one thing you love about Fall /
The weather is so lovely and cool, not the heat
of summer or the biting cold of winter. Fall is just in between and very comfortable.
Plus, the leaves are changing colour and I love that.
5.     Who is the person or group of people that
most support you in your writing?
My mother was my biggest supporter and fan.
Without her I would never have been able to write full time and without her
encouragement, I might have given up. Sadly, she has passed on, but I think of
her every day and her encouragement is evergreen in my mind.
6.     What is your favorite Halloween Memory?
Telling my three younger brothers and their
friend spooky stories about a haunted house and a gang of intrepid youngsters
who fight off vampires, werewolves, skeletons and the like to survive!
