Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written dozens of books and am only now getting them into publication, and fortunately I seem to have a publisher who wants them all. I have one scifi and one based-on-true war story out at this time with many WIPs going.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
“Accept the Broken Heart” is the Vietnam war from a young woman’s emotional perspective, MY perspective as an idealistic nurse fresh out of school when a hometown buddy died and I knew I had to “go to help the boys”.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I cannot write in silence, I have to have the TV or music on at all times. Good thing I am capable of multi-tasking.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Asimov, Bradbury, Tolkien and I got to meet all three, got to KNOW Ray Bradbury, and he was as amazing as you might think.
What are you working on now?
A scifi piece called “Bring the Rain”, Captain Dariana Tracy-Wilson is a highly trained Marine AND a scientist, which means she will want to both shoot it and investigate it. She discovers the single most horrendous alien threat for Earth, and she inadvertently causes a 102+-year cataclysm for mankind…AND if you want to know any more, you will need to buy the book, out hopefully next year.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Such a variety that it is hard to say that one works over another, I use so many different platforms.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
NEVER STOP and do not listen to anyone but yourself. I did for far too many years and I kick myself for allowing any voice inside my head but my own.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Ray Bradbury: Vomit on the page, then go back and clean up.
What are you reading now?
Right now I am working on so many edits that I don’t have nearly enough time to read outside material!
What’s next for you as a writer?
Simply more words on paper, that is always my thing.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
It would need to be sets, they can’t be read alone, I think: “The Foundation Trilogy”, “Lord of the Rings”, “The Martian Chronicles”.
