Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I get lost in writing. Raising grandchildren is rewarding, but when you add a job and other day-to-day stresses things can get a little tense. Writing just melts all that away.
What do your fans mean to you?
I'm very appreciative of anybody that wants to look at what I write. It warms my heart. I try to make sure that what I put out there is worth the time to read so that the reader gets as much joy out of reading it as I got in writing it.
