Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Well, I am very new to the publishing end of writing, but have been scribbling since I was in junior high. Life kept me very busy, but now that I am an empty nester I decided time to publish and see what people think of my ideas, books etc. I really write because I love reading. I want to give a little back to the pastime that kept me happy, occupied and sane during those long and hard days.
Reading can enlighten, enrich, and just plain entertain. I want to do a little of each.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Five books on Kindle so far. Last one was A Trace of Love.
The first was science fiction, Seekership: Humanity’s Hope, Book One. Obviously part of a series that I am still completing. It was inspired by my love of science fiction and the hopes and dreams that it can impart. New worlds, space travel, I wanted to be living on another planet by now.
It was followed by book two of the series, Seekership Creche-world. Then Ordinary Annie, a children’s book dealing with self esteem for a little girl.
The next was on the racy side. A Hot Dark Knight. And the last A Trace of Love, a love story with a dark twist. You never know who you might be dating.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not that I am aware of. Would like it if anyone told me if I did.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Oh, my gosh, too many to count. Isaac Asimov, Anne McCaffrey, Robin Cook, Agatha Christie and more.
