Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, the Thief, The Poacher and The Murderer is the 4th title in my Donna Harp series, due out later in 2014. The idea has been ticking around my head for a while now as I tried to find the time for it. It was originally quite simple just a burglary and a murder really, but as I sat down to plan it out it expanded, with twists and turns popping into my head, not to mention things to be included to connect it with the previous titles in the series and the beginnings of future stories in the series.
Who are your favorite authors?
I have several favourite authors, in a variety of genres; Anne McCaffrey for sci-fi, David Eddings for fantasy, Clive Cussler for adventure, Tom Clancy for action/espionage.
Sometimes it's hard to say who is my all time favourite.
