That’s pretty awesome that you write books for young adults and children. Good luck in coming up with a title for your new project.

Thank you so much Fatima 🙂 I love children, have always wanted to work with them or be a nurse..and since I cannot do either, I figured I can help them by giving them books 🙂 The new project is called Tales of Llanbriar Crossing since it will be a bunch of short stories from that area and characters from that area.

That quote by Gandhi is one of my faves too. What a fantastic interview! Those sound like interesting books.

Good interview and great answers. As an author myself, I could never answer the question of who is my favorite character. My characters are all part of me so I could never choose one over the other. They’re more than just voices in my head, they’re memories and bits and pieces of everyone that has ever made an impression on me. I think most authors would agree on that.

Hi Richard! I totally agree! It is very hard to pick a favorite as I love, or love to hate, all of my characters. Have a great day!

I have a 10 1/2 year-old son that these might be perfect for. I’ll have to have him take a look and see what he thinks. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome! Please let me know what you all think by leaving a review if you could! Thanks~

Great interview! I really enjoyed reading post like this to get to know the author better. I like many quotes by Mahatma Gandhi and this particular one I really like. My favorite is An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.

Thank you! I love that quote as well.

Great interview and fun to read! She sounds like a fascinating woman. I like that quote too – it makes sense to me. I always want to help where i can. Also like her explanation! I’ve always felt independent, but realised recently that you can only help yourself; you know best what you need. Although people can help, only you can solve your problems x

Hi Jodie. Thanks so much for the compliment! I do my best, but that’s really all any of us can do 🙂 Have a wonderful evening!

Such an awesome interview. I would love to read her books.

very interesting interview! it would be nice if there’s a video too!
