Where are you right now (LVR, DR, Bathroom) and what are you wearing? You have to tell the truth. *My office, and I’m wearing my hospital scrubs.
Do you think birth order affects the way you write? *I don’t know—I’m an only child. It certainly made it necessary to learn to amuse myself, which I did by reading, and then writing stories, so I suppose it did influence my love of writing.
What was the greatest thing you learned in school? *That I could tell stories, and that not everyone could, or even wanted to. Second greatest is grammar and spelling, then history.
What is the hardest part in writing a story? *The middle. I know how it’s going to start and how it will end, but not how they will get there. I wish I could dismiss that with a sentence in the synopsis I have to write for my editor—“and then stuff happens…”
If you were writing a book about your life what would the title be? *Third Time’s the Charm.
What is your favorite material item that you own (examples: ipod, computer, Gone with the Wind book, grandmother’s rocking chair) *My Ipad, followed closely by my Ipod. I’ve become gadget girl in middle age.
What is something that very few people know about you? *That I sold my very first manuscript. Don’t worry, I got rejections later…
And Simpson Creek, Texas, is the perfect place to do it. On the run from his dangerous past, Sam Bishop is happy to find a town seeking "marriage-minded bachelors." A wealthy wife is just what he needs to make his gambling problems disappear. But when Prissy Gilmore catches Sam's eye, she proves to be much more than a rich match. Sam wants to deserve her, wants to become sheriff and protect her hometown--wants to be the man she believes him to be. Yet the true test is waiting, when his past returns to challenge his future."
