Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
That really depends on the given day! Mostly, it's Robin McKinley and Anne McCaffrey. There are very few books I vividly remember reading as a teen, and the ones I remember the most are the DRAGONRIDERS OF PERN trilogy and THE BLUE SWORD. I also really love a couple of Madeleine L'Engle's works, as well; RING OF ENDLESS LIGHT, in particular.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read. A lot. I read both in traditional format and on my Kindle. I also like to do some roleplaying on tumblr. I think of it as a way to keep my storywriting teeth sharp, because you have to respond to your partner and their creativity. And it teaches you what people like to see happen in a story, what they respond well to, and what they don't. I also love to garden. I have a lovely rose garden.
