Me, too. What makes you laugh?

How old were you when you started writing?

Describe your perfect evening. 
A glass of wine, a good dinner, and a book.

Where do you get your inspiration?

What do you do when you get a writer's block?
I’ve never had it.

Who is your favorite author? 
Whoever I’m reading at the moment.

Best book you ever read. 
Couldn’t single one out.

Am reading five at the moment.

What would you do for a living if you weren’t a writer?
If I was younger, I’d be a chef or breed dogs.

Who is the one person who has influenced your personal life the most and why? 
My husband because he has supported me over the years no matter what I’ve become involved in.

If you could sit down and have a conversation with ONE person, living or dead, real or fictional, who would it be and why? 
The Dalai Lama. He’s a constant source of inspiration.

He is a true source of inspiration to us all. What advice would you give someone who aspired to be a writer? 
Just do it! You don’t need degrees, critic groups, or workshops.
