Contemporary romance and women’s mostly (Dare Island, the MacNeills), though some readers know my romantic suspense and paranormal romance best (Children of the Sea).
2. Coffee or tea lover?
Coffee! Italian Guy owns a coffee shop.
3. Name one thing on your bucket list.
A long tour of Italy.
4. Do you have pets?
We had a houseful, two cats and dog, who gradually succumbed to old age. We are waiting for our next rescue dog to barge into our lives.
5. When I wake up every morning I… Drink coffee. Hm. This could be a theme.
6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.
The most unique is a quilt my great-grandmother made which has always hung over our bed. If you look closely, you can see that two of the diamonds on the lower left side are deliberately reversed. My grandmother told me that’s because only God can make perfect things, which I’ve always thought is a lovely analogy for writing. Or, you know, life.
7. Do you have any hobbies or particular skills?
Besides reading? I make cards–greeting cards. It’s very rewarding to do something visual and much faster than writing a book!
8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?
I want them to close the book with a smile and a happy sigh. I hope they’ll recognize a little of themselves in my characters and take some hope or courage or encouragement into their real lives
