Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I like fantasy and historical romance. However, as a youth, I fell in love with the Trixie Beldon series, which is similar to the Nancy Drew mystery series. At the time I wanted to grow up and be a detective and write mystery novels. I drove our neighbors nuts sneaking around the neighborhood looking for clues to some, yet to be discovered, mystery.
How do you approach cover design?
For my non-fiction title: Surviving Denmark on a Bag of Peach Rings, I wanted a fun cover that complimented the title as well as the beautiful Kingdom of Denmark.

For Farewell, My Denmark, I hired a professional cover artist. We went through a lot of trial and error before we found the girl on the cover. She looks similar to Catherine Erichsen, the main character, the greenery is similar to that in Denmark.
