Q. What do you like best about writing?
A. I love words and using them to create worlds, explore ideas and craft beauty. To fill a blank page with an idea and see where that idea takes the reader is exciting and challenging and fun.


Q. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
A. Not unlike other writers, I experienced the compulsion to put pencil to paper at a very young age. I intended to write seriously after our children were born. However, our second child, a son, was born profoundly retarded. That life-changing event silenced me for many years. I credit the Ohio Writing Project and the Antioch Writers Workshop for giving me back my voice after Scott passed away.


Q. Which author has inspired you the most?
A. I love a big book with a fully-realized new world. Frank Herbert’s DUNE had a huge influence on me. But before that, as a middle grader, I discovered, read and re-read The Mystery of Camp Laughing Water. Then, in seventh grade, a boy challenged me by saying I couldn’t possibly read all of The Complete Works of Arthur Conan Doyle in a year. Accepting the dare, I read all 1000+ pages in less than a month, and I was hooked on mysteries.
