Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
As a teenager. I always enjoyed doing school term papers. It was not until my early twenties that I sent a couple of ideas off to NY publishers. One editor liked my nonfiction proposal and suggested I send the completed manuscript. I'm afraid that scared me and I did not complete it. About that time I wrote articles for our local newspaper but it was not until I met my late husband, author Don Pendleton that I took my writing more seriously. His encouragement,and inspiration moved me forward into a published author. My first published book was To Dance With Angels, which we cowrote. Many have followed, both fiction and nonfictiion.
What is your writing process?
I like writing at night.
