Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing.
I had only dabbled with writing before. Then a few years ago, I started writing Securing Aisling and everything seemed to flow into place.
Tell us about your books.
Securing Aisling is the first book in the Kingdoms of Kearnley series. Healing Gilvary will be out later this year and Restoring Dermot is the third and final of the series, due in 2017.
How did you go about getting published?
It did not take long for me to figure out that I wanted the control and flexibility of Indie publishing.
What is your writing process? Do you have a time, day or place you like to write?
I usually write in the morning—after coffee, of course. I sit in my office to write at an old, beat-up desk that belonged to my father.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Full-time job, pets, hobbies?
I quilt (mostly art quilts) and I enjoy going to car shows. My husband has a 1974 Plymouth Duster. Mine are a 1968 Barracuda convertible and a 1957 Chevy truck that used to belong to my father.
Any advice for authors about book covers?
It is harder than you probably think.
Any marketing tips you’d like to share with other authors?
You have to work at it almost every day. Your book will not sell itself no matter how good it is.
What’s your favorite book?
A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers
What are you reading now?
The Proposal by Lori Wick
What’s your next book project?
Healing Gilvary is almost done as far as writing goes. I am getting things ready for the cover right now. And I am about a third of the way through my first draft of Restoring Dermot.
