Interview with Deborah Tadema

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is stretching my imagination. Sometimes it surprises me that I've have written something that I think is good. I love getting my characters into trouble and finding ways to save them. Most of all, it humbles me with the feedback I've been getting. I'm glad that I can entertain and inspire people who read my books.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are the best. They mean the world to me. They give me the confidence to keep writing.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing I'm usually reading. In the summer I work in my flower garden. I find this relaxing. I also love to hike in the nearby woods.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
What inspires me to get out of bed each day is adding to the story I've been working on. Some of my best ideas come to me at 3 a.m.
What other books have you written?
I have written a short story called Taken Twice. Also, the first book of a series: No Honor Between Brothers, and the second one that will be published very soon, Abandoned Honor.
