When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Planting and arranging plants and flowers, walking and playing with my cairn terrier Murphy Brown, and taking trips to exciting spots in California and Oregon. I am always planning my next trip to Europe, and last year I went to France to research an upcoming novel.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I discover them based on interest and need. Often I find them in Amazon catalogs. I have quite a Kindle collection, and it keeps growing!
