Smashwords Interview

How do you approach cover design?
To me, cover design should be a reflection of the story taking place inside the book. As I write, I have a particular image in my minds eye, a certain way of "seeing" what's going on. Often, cover design will go through many steps, beginning with my original idea and working with others, behind the scenes, to bring it to life.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
As a young girl, I read Island of the Blue Dolphins,as a school requirement. I fell in love with the lead character in the book, a strong girl, who fought not just for her own survival, but her younger brothers as well. It was an engaging read for a very imaginative young girl, like myself, taking me to a far off place and letting me experience the excitement of adventure while being safe inside my own cozy little room. It's was escapism from what I deemed my seemingly "ordinary life" taking me to an extraordinary new world.

To Kill a Mockingbird is another all time favorite of mine. As a youth, this book felt so dark and mysterious to me, even though I didn't fully understand the message it was sending at the time. As an adult, I've reread it multiple times, each time coming away with something new.

All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Wise and Wonderful and All Things Bright and Beautiful, written by James Herriot, because anything to do with animals appealed to me at a young age. I imagined myself following in Mr. Herrior's footsteps, becoming a veterinarian and caring for all God's beautiful creatures.
