Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy for me is the response from my readers and fans. I don't limit myself to a single genre which enables me to reach a wide range of readers. The Dead Claim Their Own is a classic turn of the century ghost story whereas under my pen name of Hargrove Perth the Quintessential Gentleman is an extremely graphic novel about a serial killer in the late 1800's. Many of my books blend fiction with historical characters. This is where I receive the most praise from my readers which really delights me to the core. Every author wants their work to stand out somehow. I am glad I found a niche that my readers love as well.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are everything to me, and I am not just saying that to be coy. I once had someone message me on Facebook and ask me if I would sign several copies they had purchased for their sister for her birthday and wanted to know what I charged! I was not only floored but also humbled by the fact they would ask me what I charged! I agreed to meet them at a local grocery store, with my husband in tow, and signed all three books. I don't think that is something that could ever be forgotten. When someone says 'hey, I read your book and it was really great' how can you not want to meet them and sign it for them?
