1. What genre(s) do you write?
Small Town Romance
2. Coffee or tea lover?
Both, but in the winter I’m more of a tea drinker. I don’t like my coffee too strong or too hot. (*pass the ice) My favorite tea is by Harney & Sons and is called PARIS Tea. It is absolutely delightful!
3. Name one thing on your bucket list.
See the Northern Lights
4. Do you have pets?
I have two big dogs. A chocolate lab named Dakota, and a 10 month old 112 lb Pyrenean Mastiff puppy named Sarge. I like to call him Large Sarge. I also have a Palomino named Tooter who is the best horse in the whole world. I also have a stray pink pot-bellied pig that likes to visit and eat with the horse. She comes and goes as she pleases. It’s really quite funny. Life in the country is good!
5. When I wake up every morning I… thank God for another day. Write in my journal what I’m grateful for. Then let the dogs out. (Yes! It was me all along! Who let the dogs out? Nancy!)
6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.
How about “worst purchase ever” ~ I went to the Mecum Auction in Florida a few years ago. It had been on my bucket list. I hadn’t planned to buy anything, I’d just always wanted to go. Well, this shiny red Mercedes convertible rolled across the block. It was absolutely ADORABLE. I hadn’t checked it out ahead of time, because I hadn’t planned on buying anything. Well, when it got down to just a couple thousand dollars I thought How can I go wrong? It’s a 98 Mercedes SLK with only 40000 miles on it. My paddle went in the air. Someone else bid. My paddle flew in the air again. (Did I mention I can be a little competitive?) The excitement grew. The auctioneer assistant was standing right in front of me, nodding and encouraging me! I hesitated, but…yes, you guessed it…my paddle went up again. Well, at the end of the day I had a Mercedes convertible. Yes, it was shiny, but the passenger door wouldn’t shut, and the inside dash had been completely ripped out in a drug raid, and the tires were dry-rotted too. I had to have that thing shipped home. Then put in the shop for nearly a year. I call it the “little mule” because of it’s drug history. Now, it’s a cute-at-first-glace don’t- look-too-close over-priced driveway ornament. Anyone want to buy a car?
7. Do you have any hobbies or particular skills?
Is watching Hallmark considered a hobby…or an addiction?
8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?
Relaxation, and a reminder that there’s always hope and good in the world. My goal when I wrote my first book, and it remains today, is to give my readers a story that will let them forget their troubles, shopping lists, bills, stress, or whatever is weighing them down…at least long enough to catch a breath. Hugs and happy reading~
