Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
So many! Ayn Rand, Stephen King, Catherine Ryan Hyde, JoAnn Mapson, Pat Conroy, Herman Wouk, Anne River Siddons . . .I won't go on, but know that I could!
What's the story behind your latest book?
This is a book close to my heart. I lost my younger sister to cancer over twenty years ago. She was the most important person in my life, and I've always wanted to write 'her book'. It's not autobiographical in the least, but the relationship of the sisters in the story is.

I finally felt, after seven published novels, that I was good enough to do the book justice.
