Do you plan out your book with outlines and notecards? Or just write?
I just write – I never outline.
Describe your perfect evening.
Sitting on the beach with a warm bonfire, cold glass of wine, and a my warm and cuddly husband
Where do you get your inspiration?
It varies but I would say overall I get inspiration from locations. My series are all set in locations I love. Lake Tahoe, San Juan Islands, Alaska, Hawaii, South Carolina Island, Oregon Coast, Montana.
What do you do when you get a writer's block?
Take a walk until an idea occurs to me. It usually doesn’t take long.
What was the last book you read.
No Living Soul by Julie Moffett
I only started writing after I retired from the real world so I would probably be doing nothing. At least not in terms of a job.
Who is the one person who has influenced your personal life the most and why?
My husband. We are high school sweethearts who basically grew up together. I think we influenced each other at every point along the way.
What advice would you give someone who aspired to be a writer?
Just do it. The only way to publish a novel is to put your butt in the seat and write it. Wishing you could publish a novel will get you nowhere without taking action.
