"In today's crazy world, we all need to take a moment or a pause, such as an interlude, during the day to find or make a little romance. Romance can be with a special someone or romance may be found in the simplicity of life, in nature, in a book, in friendship, in food, in oneself or in mediation. Everyone needs time to simply feel love, contentment, and joy." - Mary Quast

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Romance of course! I love strong shifters with a soft side. Contemporary Westerns are pretty hot. However, I've been hooked on Romantic Comedy lately. Love Pippa Grant and Claire Kingsley. I especially love stories with the setting around a brewery or winery. I'm a sucker for locations in Michigan.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Mid- Michigan spending summers at the family cottage on the lake with gram. She was a true story teller and I learned the skill from her. A Native American neighbor joined her with tales of legends. Inspiration for my stories came from those stories as well as traveling and the people I met. I'm telling a story constantly in my head.
