Smashwords Interview

How long does it take to write a book?
Every book is different. Sometimes it takes several months to finish a book, and sometimes it takes many years. Since I like writing historical fiction, it seems that I can never do enough research. I am constantly checking and rechecking facts, and learning something new is a continual distraction which keeps me from the actual writing process. The research is as much fun as the writing.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
One of my writing quirks is that I love using family names for my characters. The fictional characters that are in my stories are nothing like the real live person whose name I've used. Our family genealogical records are a great resource for character names.
