Which review of your work has really warmed your heart? Which book was it for?
One book review I've gotten that warms my heart is for Just To See Him Again. It's actually the only review I've gotten for it to date but still it's special. This story was all I wanted it to be and this reviewer got it. In the review she talked to me, told me I was an artist. First time ever someone told me that! And then she said I made her cry. To make someone laugh or cry or even mad means the story touched them. And that makes it art to me. Well, I was glad to read her review because it was the first one and she told me why she loved it and thought it was beautiful.
When you write women’s fiction, how do you intend to portray your women characters in the story?
When I portray my main characters who are mostly women, I try to make them true. Every woman is not strong or even a good person sometimes, but I want her to be a woman anybody can recognize and be entertained by her actions or her storyline.
Of all the books that you have written, which one did you enjoy writing the most?
If I have to say what story I enjoyed writing the most would have to be In Too Deep. I explored how far love could take someone knowing he wasn't in the other person's best interests. This male lead wasn't the typical male for me. In other genres, he'd be classic. I wasn't trying to make the reader love him but maybe understand him as a kind of modern day Heathcliff or something.
