Hello.  Welcome and thanks for joining me. 

Tell me a bit about one of your favorites that you wrote. 

Dark Prisoner: The Kruthos Key was written as an EPIC fantasy novel. I had started fifty plus odd novels throughout my lifetime, but it was after I joined a writing site that I finished writing one. This particular book came out at 170K words. Yikes! So I split the novel into two and am currently rewriting/editing the 2nd one, Dark Prisoner: Ebbing of Tides.

Writing is a difficult endeavor. What makes you continue to write? 

It’s certainly not for money or fame. In all reality it’s who I am. Since I was a little girl stories swirled in my head and my need to write them down either as poetry or in paragraph form became second nature to me. My twin sister was involved in sports, bug collecting, fighting, etc. A typical tom-boy. Me? I had my head buried in a book, or was coloring and drawing, or writing a tale or two. It kept me sane growing up and made me who I am today.

What do you look forward to every day? 

Waking up is a good thing. *chuckles* I look forward to seeing someone being kind to another person and/or animal; I look forward to seeing someone in their 80’s still holding hands; I look forward to seeing a world without so much hate and derision. Every day I try to give a little happiness to someone whether it be a compliment, holding the door open, a gift, etc. Small things like that can amount to something huge. That’s what I look forward to every day. Oh, and my grandson’s smile. Makes me melt every time!

How do you define success? What makes you successful? 

I define success by how happy one is with themselves. In this publishing world there are many authors vying for that spotlight of success. And as many know, it’s few and far between that the spotlight shines on them. For me as a writer, if I’ve written a book that people like and it stays with them long after the last page is read, then I’ve done what I set out to do. That to me is success.

Any tips for a newbie writer? 

I’ve been in this business since the inception of eBooks, and although I was an Amazon Best-Selling author for a couple of weeks, I’m nowhere near as successful as Stephen King, Nora Roberts or J.K. Rowlings. However, I would never have landed on that best-selling list if I’d given up. Another very important tip: Grow thicker skin because in this business you’ll need it. Not everyone is going to like what you write and that’s just the way it is. Unfortunately, some people can be extremely cruel with their review(s). When you get knocked down like that (and you will), dust yourself off and keep going. And try to remember that it’s merely one person’s opinion.
