If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone dead or alive, who would you ask?

Intriguing question! I would invite classic authors such as Charles Dickens, Jane Austin, Mark Twain, C. S. Lewis and Edgar Allen Poe. Wouldn’t that be an interesting mix of people! The conversational interplay would be fascinating.

When you are not writing, how do you like to relax?

With my husband. Just being around him makes me relax. We also hike and ride bikes together, which is very calming and a nice change from all the sedentary work of writing.

What do you hope people will take away from your writing? How will your words make them feel?

There is a lot of angst in today’s world, so I hope that my books give people a rest and reprieve from the tensions of daily life—an escape or mini-vacation so that when they have to get back at it, they will be refreshed.

What movie do you love to watch?

I love BBC mini-series and period pieces. They are the only movies I can watch over and over again. It’s like watching fine art. But I also have a weakness for The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I’ve watched it more times than I can count.

How do you feel about social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter? Are they a good thing?

They are a very good thing for me because they connect me with my readers. I am able to encourage and respond to them in a way I never could without them.

How much of the book is realistic?

It’s a fantasy, so a great deal is unrealistic. But in the midst of that, the characters act in a realistic way. None of them have magic, although some characters have more than average ability. But they act as anyone in our world would act under similar circumstances.
