Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love to be able to tell a story on paper, and thrill when I can get my readers into the thoughts and emotions of my characters. My characters are like family to me. I feel like I know them that intimately. I love to create a story based around characters and how they experience events, and how those events change them. I'm not afraid to address some pretty raw experiences that result in powerful emotions.
What are you working on next?
I am getting ready to publish Called to the Work and then I have another novel, the first one I ever began, the one that writers stick in the drawer and don't pull out for years...that will be going through refining and my editor's critical review, and then more refining, until finally it will be ready for publication later this year. It is titled Unintended Consequences. I hope you will enjoy them both. Both stories address unexpected changes in the lives of the characters and the impact those changes wrought. As is so often the case, when things don't go as planned, it affects far more than the individual character.
