How do you approach cover design?
I like to give creating my own covers a go so that I can claim the entire book as my own work. I play around with some ideas on the computer, and continue making changes until I feel I have created a quality cover. I love the books with simple illustrations that look like a child has created them. I think this suits the audience - children - quite nicely.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I have many books I really like. I love reading books set in the Wild West of America in the 1800's. I think my favorites are: 1. Heirs of Montana Series by Tracie Peterson. There's 5 books in this series and I just love how the story followed the main characters life from a child through to adulthood. It was a lovely story filled with heartache and happiness and yes it brought tears with it. I've read many books since but still name these as my number 1 favorite. 2. The Kincaid Brides by Mary Connealy. I love this author. She never fails to make me laugh. I love her writing style and humour. I recommend her to everyone. 3. The Inheritance by Tamera Alexander. It's been awhile since I read this one but I name it as a favorite because it was the first of this genre that I read and it was this book that gave me a love for the stories of the Wild West. 4 and 5. Timber Ridge Reflections and Fountain Creek Chronicles by Tamera Alexander. This is one of my favorite authors. I've read every one of her books and look forward to future ones. I loved these series because of the stories themselves but Tamera works characters from previous books in so you feel like you're getting an update on their story.
