Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
A life without learning something new daily would bore me to tears, which is what I enjoyed most about practicing law--the never ending wheel of knowledge. Writing gives me this, too, there are so many things to discover when creating characters and devising plotlines. Both occupations, lawyering and writing, force me to look under the surface of a person, to uncover what 'makes them tick.' People can face similar situations yet respond so differently that they never cease to surprise and amaze me.
What are you working on next?
I've just finished the second novel in a trilogy for middle graders, "Alex & the Lost Souls" this last summer. It turned out very nicely, if I do say so myself. Any book that can make its writer laugh and cry after having re-read it for the umpteenth time has some staying power to it.

The first book of the trilogy, "Alex & the Immortals," did very well in the contests, I thought the story had plenty of room to grow. I need to take a year off from children's story (unbelievably demanding) and will sketch out the plotlines for the third book, tentatively entitled, "Alex & the Mortal Plane."

In 2015, I published a historical romance, "His Sunshine Girl," which is a light-hearted romp. I've submitted another romance named "A Governess' Lot" for the next go-arounds and need to spend a little while polishing this gem into shining order.

At present, I'm working on two different manuscripts, both are historical romances. One is a screwball, zany romp called, "In the Suds." There's a mix up at a hotel with several of the patron's bags and nobody is what s/he seems as the contents of those bags are moved about from room to room. This cast of characters has it all: intrigue, spies, conmen, thieves, scorned lovers, an Italian opera singer, an Irish crossdresser, a country miss, and an innkeeper on the take. My second book is titled, "Prudence" and the title tickles me because it's the heroine's name, but also a jab at the hero, whose initial action in this story is anything BUT prudent. His imprudence sets him up and our heroine is going to take him on a spectacular ride through the hills of his ego as she leads him a merry dance.

A revelatory and unflinching look at the practice of law. Defying genres, this political satire depicts the heavy responsibilities shouldered by lawyers, but it's also a tale of newbie associate, Cooper Bach, recovering from devastating loss.
