I’ve never been a person who could follow a recipe when cooking or writing. I add a pinch of something here and a dash of spice there; I have to go with the moment and what I think will “taste” good at the moment. It’s the same with writing. I have to go where my heart leads me.
What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book, Morgaine Le Fay and the Viking?
Staying true to the legend(s). Morgaine Le Fay and the Viking involves King Arthur, his half-sister, Charlemagne of France and Holger Danske. So, I wanted to stay true to the themes of France’s King, Britain’s legends, and Denmark’s. It took a lot of research.
What is the easiest thing about writing?
The romance. Love is an easy path to take and the most fun…
Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?
I LOVE Stephen King, Charlaine Harris, Mary Janice Davidson, Poe and dozens of others. That’s a question like asking me what flavor of ice cream is my favorite: rocky road, coffee, chocolate, Cherry Garcia, I could go on and on.
How do you relax?
Reading, writing, knitting, baking, running, playing tennis, hiking, sewing, … The real question is how do I NOT relax… ;D
What is your favorite motivational phrase?
It’s something like this from Mother Teresa: I know God never gives us more than we can handle. Sometimes I just wish he didn’t have so much confidence in me.
What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Write because you love telling stories. Write because you love reading and writing. Just write.
