Now that had to be a big transition! I live in something closer to the first, with no public transit. So, the folks simply clip their toenails off any old place.Â
I love almost any genre of book, as long as the story and charactersÂ hook my interest and keep it. I do love a good Regency, however, it doesn’t have to be an aristocrat, any rich rogue will do.Â I like books that put the locale in a way that makes me feel I’ve been there, or makes wantÂ to visit it for real some time in the future.Â Elizabeth Peter’s books make me want to go to Egypt and dig around at the base of a pyramid, though I’m sure it would only get me arrested. Of course, this would give me more time to read.Â Nevada Barr does it so well, she almost makes locale a character in her books.Â These two are long time favorites of mine.Â Â
Not to be left out are writers likeÂ Anne McCaffrey,Â Â Terry Brooks,Â Christopher Paolini,Â Â CE Murphy, Angela Knight,Â Laurell KÂ Hamilton, Heather GrahamÂ etc.Â AllÂ write either mysteries, alternative worlds, or worlds made up completely and exist nowhere outside of the binding of their books,Â but areÂ still are still well traveled in my imagination.Â Â Â
Now, for my questions:
1. What are the things you can’t live without when you write? Music, slippers, television, etc.Â
2. When you begin a story are you the business-like plotter or theÂ footloose ‘pantser’?
3.Â You’ve just got the call that Breach of Trust is about to be made into a movie.Â After clearing the dollar signs from your eyes, who’d you like to see in the roles ofÂ your hero and heroine?Â Â Â
4.Â Â How did your family, friends, clients etcÂ feel about it when they first found out about you becoming a published author?
5. Do you see yourselfÂ writingÂ five, ten, fifteen years down the road? If so, is it the same genre, orÂ do you want to branch out into others? Â
