Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
Pride and Prejudice
~ I love Jane Austen. Her books are full of wonderful dialogue and observations.

Anne of Green Gables
~ Anne was the first novel I read over and over and over again. Anne threw herself into everything she did with such a wonderful fervor.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
~Hitchhiker's was a the key to a secret clubhouse. Like knowing where your towel is, knowing Hitchhiker's told the other nerds you were one of them. And looking at humanity through an alien lens really resonated with me as an outsider.

Master and Commander
~I started reading the Aubrey-Maturin novels in my early twenties. They are a wonderful mix of adventure, science, and intimate looks at daily life. It's hard to imagine that they take place at the same time as Austen's novels. I think anyone who loves Austen should read O'Brien, and vice versa.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Lunch in the Park started as a very short daydream about a couple that meets in the park. I had to add some conflict, some extra characters and give my main character a life outside of the romance, and suddenly it was a novel.

Kate had always taught her niece that when a dragon comes along, you slay it yourself. She rescued herself, Priscilla, her students, her friends, and everyone else who loved and depended on her on a daily basis. When a yellow Labrador bounded into her picnic in the park, Kate's life got even more complicated. She almost forgot that you don't always have to do the rescuing alone.
