Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Dig Deeper (A Hallie James Mystery) is my first book that I have published.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Dig Deeper evolved from a nightmare that I experienced last spring. I felt the need to write it down and let the story evolve. I also added comedy because I enjoy a good laugh, and a dash of romance is always fun.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I’ve struggled with insomnia for years. So, I can be found working at my lap top at any time of the day or night.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
My taste in authors is very diverse. My favorites are Barbara Michaels, Janet Evanovich, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Dan Brown, Jim Butcher, Kathy Reichs, Nora Roberts, J. K. Rowling, and Bertrice Small.
What are you working on now?
Presently, I am working on, Run Faster, the second book in The Hallie James Mystery series.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My authors page on Amazon. http://amazon.com/author/dkherman
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Sit down and let the words flow.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Every author is different, just be yourself.
What are you reading now?
I don’t read any books while I have my own in progress. When I’m writing, I can’t concentrate on someone else’s story. The last book I read, in November, was The Rock Club by Stan Thomas.
What’s next for you as a writer?
For now, I plan on continuing Hallie’s story.
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?
Barbara Michaels’ Ammie Come Home
Stephen King’s Insomnia
Any book from the Stephanie Plum series.
Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind
