Tell us about yourself and your books.:
My sister Loretta Jackson and I are the authors of over fifty published novels. Most of our books are in the mystery and romantic suspense genres. Our High Country Mystery Series is currently being published by Books in Motion.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Writing together is in itself an unusual habit. Through the years we have learned to work together and try to make our work flow so that it sounds as if it was written by one person. Both of us carefully read, edit and approve each chapter of the book.
What authors have influenced you?
Both of us enjoy the works of Tony Hillerman, who influenced us to become writers. We are both also big fans of Aaron Elkins, especially the Gideon Oliver Series. We also were influenced by the gothic writers Phyllis Whitney and Virginia Coffman, as well as Agatha Christie and Erle Stanley Gardner. We enjoy all types of mysteries.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write the book that is in your heart. If the book is interesting to you, others will also likely find it of interest. Always write for the love of it and not for the money.
