Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I've been working on a new Bobby and Sonny Mystery called "The Case of the Missing Snake" which features Maxine, a new member of the Bubblegum Detective Agency,
Who are your favorite authors?
I'm a fan of mysteries. I enjoy novels by Ruth Rendall, P.D. James, Elizabeth George. There are other authors that I learn from for example I'm presently reading Patricia Cromwell's, "Cruel and Unusual." What I look for in novels is that they are well-written. Reading well-written books helps me to improve my writing. I don't limit my reading choices to novels. I read widely and across the diaspora.
