Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The creative phase. When the characters take over and do what they want to do...and you just get to pick up the pieces. Sometimes I'm a little off-put at where they want to go but once established, characters have a mind of their own...and some of them aren't so nice.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything...a book if no one reads it is just paper with black marks on it...I love to get responses from readers...value their opinions...one of my book club books liked the second book so much more than the first but also had some constructive criticism...that's of real value. Makes the writer more aware of how certain actions, characters etc. effect the readers.

Series

Deadly Duo
These tales told in the voice of the perpetrators and their pursuers are set in Tucson, Arizona. The series introduces detectives Tec Hoffman and Bill Jenkins. Sara, Tec’s wife, likes to solve puzzles and is his secret weapon. Bill Jenkins, often the first to notice unusual behaviors, sees everything in “what would I do terms.” Bill sees himself as every man and makes judgements accordingly. Frank Alvarez, the youngest of their crew, has joined the team and is trying hard just not to mess up. While in the hard-boiled ranks of detective stories…these guys all have a soft side. Actually, like most cops in our real world, the three became policemen to protect and serve. Our detectives are still searching for Julie, the killer who appears in all of the books. She got away almost ten years ago and still manages to avoid the long reach of the law. There are readers who hope she gets hers…and almost as many who like to see her slipping away from her pursuers. Which are you?
