About the Author
I started writing . . .
I don’t remember ever NOT writing. I kept as diary as a very little girl (as if I led such an exciting life that it demanded documenting). Writing was such a natural part of being that I never thought of it as a skill or talent. I assumed everyone could do it.
What I love most about writing . . .
… is when a story starts writing itself. Sometimes an idea clicks and it’s all I can do to keep up with the flood of images, dialog and action.
The toughest thing about writing . . .
… is when the story doesn’t write itself as is usually the case at the beginning of a project. It seems to require a lot of fumbling around as I write my way into the story. I keep cranking the engine and just when I’m about to despair it kicks into gear.
My lifelong hero . . .
… is my late husband. They don’t make men like him anymore.
If I wasn’t a writer, I would be . . .
… in big trouble. I can’t do anything else.
When I am writing, I listen to .
… a Pandora station that is all jazz fusion instrumentals: Pat Metheny, Jean Luc Ponty, Keiko Matsui, Sunlounger, Bernie Williams, Blank & Jones, Chris Botti, Craig Chauico and my latest favorite, Billy McLaughlin.
I never tire of “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.” I also like the third movie in that series, “The Last Crusade.” I learn something new about storytelling every time I watch.
Tommy Lee Jones.
The ones not on my diet.
Modern convenience I can’t live without:
My computer and the Internet. I think if you delve into my personal background you will discover that I didn’t exist prior to 1987.
Nobody knows that I . . .
… am an introvert. Oh shoot, now everyone will know.
