Hi Amy, welcome to the veranda.
Thanks for inviting me to join you and meet your readers, Christine. The verandah, by the way, is lovely.
How did you end up becoming a writer?
A rather circuitous path. I wrote throughout my childhood and adolescence. Poems, songs, short stories. I was fascinated with dialogue and comedic timing on television and would scribble notes while I watched shows. In high school, I joined the drama club—and no, it was not nearly as cool as Glee, although it was a lot of fun. But that led to studying theater and Shakespeare and then years of working in regional and community theaters. Play scripts and the stories in them were my love, and one day I realized that what I really wanted to do was write. I quit the theater and got a job and started writing my story ideas in my free time. Back then, it hadn’t occurred to me to try to make a career of it.
What is your favorite genre to write?
I’m intrigued already. Can’t wait to meet Cosmo. Are you a plotter or do you follow the muse?
What do you read? What are your favorite genres? And your favorite authors?
What is your current project? What can we look forward to reading next?
I completely understand how multi-tasking zaps focus.
Where do you get your ideas for your stories?
How long were you trying to get published before you got the “call?”
What advice would you give aspiring writers?
I’m so glad you joined me on the veranda. Thank you for offering a digital copy of Lying Eyes to one of my readers. I can’t wait to see who gets their name pulled from this week! Congratulations on your release!!
