Who is your favorite author? That is so hard to say because I appreciate different things about so many different authors. But if I had to pick one, perhaps it would be John Grisham. He does a great job of building a complex story while writing in a style that is quick and easy to read, and I do my best to emulate that style in my own writing. Like Grisham, I want readers to feel like things are speeding along, that they’re not getting bogged down with excessive details, and it won’t take long to reach a resolution to the suspense that’s keeping them on the edge. But then, there’s always something else to take its place!

What book genre do you adore? Adore? Interesting word choice. In that case, I’ll have to say romantic suspense. Unlike most other authors who write action/mystery/suspense, I am compelled to throw romance (and…ahem…sex) in my books because I personally enjoy reading it. In my opinion, intimate human interaction makes life so rich and yummy that I want as much of it as I can get…and give, too!

What book should everyone read at least once? I’m going to steer away from the obvious classics or religious texts and say The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck, M.D. It does such a great job of putting life into perspective and teaching us how to be happy. It encourages us to take responsibility for our own feelings, stop looking “out there” for happiness and/or blaming something or someone else for our problems. Once we do that, we become very powerful and can simply decide to live life however we choose.

Are there any books you really don’t enjoy? Yes, and I know I’m in the minority here, but I get bored with books that have pure fantasy with no connection to reality – i.e., to the point where I can’t personally relate. If it’s science fiction and utilizes technology that is reasonably plausible, even in the distant future, I’m still good.

What do you hope your obituary will say about you? That I made a positive impact on other people’s lives.
