Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Joy -- I usually reserve for real life, but the imaginary life has it's own moments. I enjoy creating characters and have them come to life. They become real people to me. I guess that means the imaginary and the real become enmeshed...I have to practice at being a practical person.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean a lot! Wish I had more of them. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell everybody on your social media.
