Where are you right now (LVR, DR, Bathroom) and what are you wearing? You have to tell the truth.
I’m in my living room and I’m wearing pajamas.
Do your characters ever give you surprises when you are writing? Can you give us an example if they do and if they don’t do you know why?
They absolutely do sometimes. Miss Aggie totally surprised me in her second book when she decided to walk out in the middle of an investigation.
What is something that very few people know about you?
I like doo wop music.
Can you tell something about this book or in writing it that is maybe a behind the scenes that we’d find interesting?
I was in my 60s when I was first published.
If you could live in any time period when and where would that be and why?
This one. This is where God put me.
If you could visit any place in the world where would you go and why?
London. I’ve always longed to go there. Maybe because London is the setting for so many of my favorite books.
What is your favorite material item that you own (examples: ipod, Gone with the Wind book, grandmother’s rocking chair)
My Bible and my Photo albums.
The Miss Adventures of Miss Aggie
The Misadventures of Miss Aggie series was originally written for Barbour’s former cozy mystery bookclub. Recently, those of us who wrote for that line received the rights back to our books. With the help of MacGregor Literary Agency, some of us decided to give our mysteries a new home in e-book form.
The new line, Spyglass Lane Mysteries, is doing very well, especially on Amazon. My series is about a young woman name Victoria Storm who inherits a converted hunting lodge/mansion which is now a boarding house for a group of senior citizens, long-time friends who can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
