Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I have tons of ideas for short stories. My biggest problem is deciding on which one to do next. I have steered from doing novels only because of the dedication and concentration it takes. I think I may have come up with a way to overcome that issue. I have the plot I just need to do the outline. I like to set my goals in time frames. When I am done with the current short story, I will concentrate on my novel outline.
Who are your favorite authors?
I enjoyed the Amelia Peabody series but by far, I have read everything that Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child's have written. Also dearly love Sherlock Holmes.
