Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I live in a little house in the woods with three other humans, a cat, and some chickens in the yard. All that put an end to my days of world-circling travel, but has not stopped my writing.
I write historical romance, fantasy, articles for the local press, and whatever else strikes my fancy. I’m currently midway through a fantasy series which will be released later in 2016.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I’ve been listening to a lot of author interviews and my writing habits are really pretty normal, with lots of procrastinating on the internet and long walks in between short spurts of putting words on the page (or editing them).
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I read pretty widely and it’s always hard to choose favorites. One book I really loved was Lud-in-the-Mist by Hope Mirrlees.
What are you working on now?
A rather long fantasy series, loosely inspired by the legend of the fall of Atlantis.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Keep at it, and find a way to be satisfied with your work that doesn’t depend on outside feedback like sales or awards.
What are you reading now?
The Little Red Hen (I have a young child thrusting it at me right now).
What’s next for you as a writer?
I’d like to experiment with different genres and lengths after I wrap up this series.
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?
A couple of blank books, a good poetry collection, and some history or mythology.
