It’s so true, isn’t it? When you read something you love, you tend to hang onto it. It’s permitted to occupy valuable real estate, either on your book shelf or in your Kindle Library; occupying that privileged place for an indeterminant amount of time until you decide to read it again. It’s not a matter of IF you will read it again; just when 🙂
Writing is much the same, really. Although quiet spells come, and sometimes Inspiration seems devoid of feeling, its not a matter of IF it will return; only when. I’ve been writing steadily for nearly 4 years now; ever since opening this blog, and in all that time I really haven’t hit any insurmountable walls….until recently.
Having finished Dark Fey, the source of its inspiration has quieted. Odd, really, that such a strong voice should now go silent, but it has. Still, it only serves to remind me that the story itself was, Truly, Inspired. Author T J Green and I were recently talking about writers block and inspiration and she turned our chat into an interview. So Im delighted, in the absence of new material of my own, to share our discussion with you.
Who’s your favourite author and/or favourite books.
Charles Dickens. Jane Austen. Shakespeare of course. Poe. I tend to prefer classic literature as opposed to contemporary, although I do also read Philippa Gregory and my good friend Richard M. Ankers (who writes a very cool combination of Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Steampunk).
What are you working on now?
I am finishing up the aforementioned Historical Romance as well as reading a book on how to write screenplays. I have had an offer on Dark Fey, IF I can get it into a stellar screenplay 😉 (SO Exciting!)
When you’re not writing, what do you get up to?
I spend most of my weekends with my Dear One. We’ve only been dating for about a year and the romance factor is still heart-pounding. When I’m not with him, I spoil my cat, spend time with my family and friends and do as much independent marketing on social media as I can.

Thanks so much for understanding the hush and enjoying my blather anyway 🙂
