1. What’s the one book or writing project you haven’t yet written but still hope to? The book I hope to write is the one I'm working on now. My ideas don't come too far ahead. I'm totally sold on the project I'm currently working on, and as I near the end of that one, another unfolds that needs to be written.
2. If you had one entire day in which to do nothing but read, what book would you start with?
Last night I couldn't sleep, and I had all sorts of books to choose from. I stared at my bookshelves in both the office and the livingroom. I finally selected Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy. The choice would be different tonight, tomorrow night, etc.
3. What was your first writing “instrument” (besides pen and paper)? Radio Shack Tandy computer with WordStar word processor. We had the old tape cassette backups too. No floppies. And an amber monochrome monitor.
4. What’s your best guess as to how many books you read in a month? I used to read at least a dozen books a month, but I write more than I read these days. I'd say about four to six books a month now.
5. What’s your most favorite writing “machine” you’ve ever owned? My Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop with a 17 inch screen, two batteries, and all my 'stuff' saved on it. I've had it a year now and I absolutely LOVE it! It was a gift from my darling husband.
6. Think historical fiction: what’s your favorite time period in which to read? (And if you don’t read historical fiction–shame on you.) I love most anything from medieval times onward. It all depends on the characters and the writing. I've read Biblical fiction, but it isn't a favorite with me.
Arabian Cow Horse by John Richard Young or The Scrapper by Leland Silliman
7. What’s the one book you remember most clearly from your youth (childhood or teens)?
