Interview with author:

In general do you like to talk about your writing and published books or are you very closed-lipped about it?

I love talking about my writing mostly because I find the research that goes into the books to be absolutely fascinating. I am passionate about sharing what I learn. It’s very exciting to me to learn new things.

What book/s are you currently writing and what is it about?

My next book, due out in November, is a compilation of love trivia and fun facts that I’ve been posting on Facebook for the past year or two. The next book, due in March, is my first romance thriller called Basking in the Light. My character makes an attempt at Internet dating and it goes very badly. She encounters, not one, but two serial killers.

Why this particular genre?

I didn’t set out to write romance, but that is where my ideas stemmed from. It all comes down to love in life after all. I’m having fun branching out to different genres, such as science fiction and fairy tales.

What inspires or motivates you to write?


The majority of my inspiration comes from nature. The bulk of my ideas come to me while I’m hiking.

What is the writing process like for you?

It’s a flow. I never write an outline and often times I have no idea where the story line is going until I sit down and start to write.

What aspect of the craft do you think is most difficult to learn?

At the moment, I’m working on being more descriptive, so I would say that is the most challenging aspect for me right now.

What has been the most encouraging comment someone has made about your writing?

That I have a clean, distinctive style and if I keep working at it I may become a great writer one day.

Any advice for struggling writers?

Just start, somewhere, anywhere! Write down a chapter or a paragraph. Everyone had to start somewhere. It only gets easier and better as you go.

Favorite author?

John D. MacDonald. I read every one of his books growing up and I believe that he still has a great effect on my writing albeit subconsciously.
 


Do you have a favorite spot to read and write?

In the summer I love to read under the canopy on my back deck and during the winter months in front of a roaring fire. Writing is most comfortable at my desk with a window that looks out at the Mount Tallac, elevation 9,700 feet!

What did you do before you became a writer?

For 15 years I designed and imported pearl jewelry from China and for a number of those years I also worked as a Sharon Stone look alike.

What do you like to do when not writing?

I spend most of my free time hiking the spectacular Sierra Mountains near my home in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

  1. Seriously cool blog post. Love the attention to detail, inclusion of cover of John D MacDonald book, and photo of lake. Although I am pretty sure it is not of Lake Tahoe. I may be wrong. Saylor would know as she posts photos from her daily hikes around Tahoe Rim Trail. Thanks for the great post.
