Tell us a little about yourself.
I was born and raised in Windsor Ontario, lived in Newfoundland for a while and now I reside in Eastern Ontario, in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by trees and farm land, in a 180 yr old farm house. I've been married 33 wonderful years and our daughter has grown and flown the nest. She is now a teacher in North Carolina.
...can I just add, that having existed in the US writer's world for such a long time that "U" in favourite looks fantastic!!
Please share an enticing tag line of your current work with us.
From my latest – erotic contemporary – FL.E.S.H. When secrets conflict with dreams, love explodes.
If your book were made into a movie, who would you want to play your main characters?
Lol – I've typed and deleted four names – think I'll settle on Johnny Depp just because I'd have to go to the set and direct him on how he should play Peyton Lang. As for Fuchsia Quinn, it has to be Natalie Portman, because Fuchsia is a trained ballerina.
How do you come up with the titles of your books?
I don't. I'm horrid at it. I currently have 2 books titled – Book With No Name and Book With No Name 2 – because it's a sequel. I ended up titling another book – A Guy and A Girl because I used that as the working title and it just grew on me.
What does your writing space look like?
A big comfy chair, next to a window overlooking a hay field. At my feet is a wonderful wood stove that heats up the room all bitter winter long. There is usually a glass filled with Diet Coke next to me and quite often some chocolate. I write on my laptop. When summer rolls in, I move to my front deck, which is surrounded by flowers.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing?
Gardening. Yoga. Belly dance.
What books might we find on your bedside table?
Probably nothing. Most of my reading is on my laptop, doing betas or critiques. If I feel the need to read an actual book, odds are it will be an Agatha Christie or a Dorothy L Sayers. I have all of their works.
What is your favourite color? Purple
What is your favourite season? Summer
What is your favourite movie? The Bird Cage
What is your favourite song? Beethoven's Piano Sonata # 14 (Moonlight Sonata)
What is your favourite comfort clothing attire? Blue Jeans
Describe yourself in three words.
Really really laid-back.
