- Why didn’t you become a policeman instead of a writer?
I really didn’t look good in blue, although now the uniforms have changed and are more grey and black. Truly, I think if anyone gave me a sob story, I’d let them off with a warning but the second or third time, I’d give them as many tickets as I could. I don’t think I’d be very good at it. It’s a tough job.
- If you could only tell one story in your life, what would it be?
I think it would be my journey from being someone who loved to write but never really believed it was good enough, to that of making the leap to being published and being thrilled with the readers who love my work.
- Apples or pears?
Well I love both but I’ll say pears – a nice juicy, ripe one.
- Which of your own characters would you like to meet and why?
I’d like to meet Dorothea Lindell. She is a dynamic 80 year old woman who has been running a winery since she was about 40, when not many women were running their own businesses. She’s feisty, no nonsense, very direct. I think she’d be a hoot to sit down and talk to about life and her journey, which hasn’t been an easy one for sure.
- How would you like the world to end?
With peace, love and laughter. J
- Which genre do you wish you could write, and why?
I love to read fantasy and sometimes get ideas for stories. I would love to write fantasy stories I love the whole new worlds and nonhuman characters that you can create. I have so much respect for those who write in this genre as I think it is a very difficult genre to write in, there’s a lot to keep track of.
- You’re stuck on an island with only three things: A knife, a match and a stick. What would you do to survive?
Not a clue. J I’d use the knife to carve a note into the stick, then throw the stick into the water and hope it would find land. I’d use the knife to get me some food. I’d keep the match as my companion and just in case I found wood that I could start a fire with, since I threw the only piece of wood I had into the ocean.
- Which of the following would you rather have stalking you through the night: A vampire, a werewolf, or Stephen King?
Stephen King, only because I’d like to see his mind in action. It would probably be the scariest night of my life, though.
- Who is the best villain you’ve ever read, and why?
You know there have been several but I have to say that the wicked witch from snow white is one that I have never forgotten. She was just so nasty and vile and I think one of the very first really mean characters I ever met in a story. She was very well portrayed.
