Interview with Barbara Bothwell
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are the most important people. They read my books and encourage me to write more. I love them!
What are you working on next?
My next book will be the second in the Entrepreneurs series. This book will cover the period from 1914 when WWI broke out in Europe and how it affects Joseph Montgomery, his friends and family.
Who are your favorite authors?
J.D. Robb, Peter Lovesey, Lesley Cookman, Simon Brett, Graham Ison. Too many to list here.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life. Especially during the summer when it is warm and sunny. I am not a winter person.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading - now there's a surprise. I do embroidery, patchwork, knit, do crosswords and, of course, housework.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mostly non-violent crime novels. I'm not one for gore and foul language.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Essex and made up stories until I was able to escape. Don't know why, but I didn't like the town where I was born.
When did you first start writing?
Think I was about seven or eight when I began to make up stories.
