I just completed and sent to my editor my second novel. Tentative publishing date Summer 2014.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
First of all, I do not plot. I start with an idea and develop it. Someone told me I had to know where the scene was going. I simply replied no I don't. I know the main story idea but that's it. For example, in Stella's Plea, a deaf child disappears from the local playground, but who took her and why, and what happens to her, and when, all these things will develop as I write. That's who I write.
How do you approach cover design?
Someone does this for me. I know what I want on the cover but it's not always what SHOULD be there. I need the cover to spell Suspense. Mitch, the designer, did a superb job with the cover for Stella's Plea and I've had great comments on it.

Smashwords book reviews by R.A. Giggie

    Two thumbs up for this book. UNDER THE STARS is a beautiful story, one that I recomment to everyone. I knew very little about autism until I read this book and what an eye opener it has been. Willow is an amazing mother of two children, Maisy, and Tommy. TOmmy is autistic. "Under The Same Stars" is about the struggles Willow's family goes through raising an autistic child, how they pitch in - or not - to help each other with every day activities, Tommy's therapies, errands, etc, the sacrifices they must make for Tommy's sake. The story is very well told, through the eyes of this young mother. Make sure you have tissues handy because Willow will have you laughing and crying, at times simultaneously.
