Q&A With the Author:
1. Describe yourself in 50 words or less:
I’m a wife, a mother, and—according to my grandkids—the best nana ever. I cook out of necessity, but love to bake. I enjoy helping others and love taking care of my family. I love reading and writing light-hearted romance. And I love chocolate. I really, really love chocolate.
2. What do you love most in the world?
3. What inspired you to become an Author?
I love books and have always been an avid reader. I don’t remember exactly what it was, but one day I just said to myself that I should write a book. I started thinking about a storyline and then I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
4. What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it?
I would love to see one of my books become a Hallmark movie. Recently, Hallmark has started accepting manuscript submissions. My goal is to submit a new manuscript and hope it not only gets published, but is also made into a movie.
5. What is your trick for getting past writer's block? And what advice do you have for other authors who are struggling to tell their story?
Writer’s block is really frustrating. The best way I’ve found to get through it is to ask myself why am I stuck and where do I want the story to go? It really helps to talk it over with someone, like my husband, or just talk to myself out loud. The best advice is to keep writing. If I know what needs to happen next, but I’m having a hard time getting to that scene, I skip over the hard part and write the next scene. It’s amazing because when I come back to the difficult part it is always so clear what I need to do.
6. Now that we've gotten to know each other, tell me a story. It can be long or short. From your childhood or last week. Funny, sad, or somewhere in between. Just make sure it's yours. What's your story?
My kids love to tease about what they call my “blonde” moments. This past week we went to cut down our Christmas tree. After finding the perfect tree, my husband and two boys tied it to the roof of our van. Before reaching home, we decided to stop at Chick-fil-A for dinner. I was driving and when we pulled up to the drive-thru window the girl said, “I see you’ve been Christmas tree shopping.” My first reaction was astonishment. How did she know we’d been out getting our Christmas tree…then it hit me…the tree is on the roof of the car. It was embarrassing, but the Chick-fil-A girl laughed, right along with my family and myself.
