Do you only write or do you have another full-time profession?

I have a full-time profession providing closed caption for television. I worked as a court reporter
for twenty years before I became a broadcast captioner. I have captioned many stations your
readers have probably watched—Fox News, CNN, ESPN, Fox Sports, NBA, MLB, NHL,
Golf, QVC, and dozens of local news channels in the United States. I’ve also captioned tons
of sports, particularly soccer, from all over the world—Australia, Europe, New Zealand, and
South America, as well as the Olympics.

Where do you like to write?

I write in my chair with my back to my desk with my legs propped up on my bed. I make
that distinction because when I’m captioning, I face my desk. When writing stories, I
deliberately turn away from my desk, prop up my legs, turn on Pandora, and whisk myself
off to other worlds.

Is writing everything you thought it would be?

That’s a difficult question to answer. It’s not what I thought it would be, but I think it’s better.
I don’t submit my work to publishers. I’m strictly Indy. At first, many years ago, the only way
was the traditional route, submitting and being rejected. That didn’t work for me. Now that
that’s no longer required, I love it. Instead of submitting articles, I write on my blog. I write
books and can market them the way I want. I find that very freeing and challenging.
I love being in the “driver’s seat.” I’ve made mistakes and learned from them. Since I have
a full-time job, I don’t have the stress of meeting publisher deadlines. I write when I can
and trust God to help me carve out the hours to finish whatever I start. It’s in the process
of working out our calling that we are refined and shown to be who we are. I’ve come to
realize, this is my passion. I don’t write for money, prestige, or fame. I write because that’s
the way God made me. And because I write for an audience of one, my books must be the
absolute best that I can make them.  So is it everything I thought it would be?  It’s more.

Who is/was your favorite character to write about?

Shale Snyder, one of the two protagonists in the Seventh Dimension Series. In many ways,
she’s like me, although not in every way. But in some ways, her life journey mirrors mine.

Who was your last book boyfriend/girlfriend?

Many years ago I read The Exodus by Leon Uris, and there was a male protagonist in that
book that I fell in love with. After all these years, that character is the one that comes to mind.

Do you like warm or cold days?

Warm days. I live in Florida—so I hate cold weather. I also love to swim and have scuba
dove all over the world—including Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the Red Sea in Eilat, Israel.

Tea, coffee or rum?

My favorite is a Starbucks latte, extra hot. I’ve been longing for one all day. Your question
has prompted me to get one as soon as I finish your interview.

Do you like scary movies/stories?

If they end well and don’t have blood.

Do you write in one sitting or in bursts?

I tend to write in bursts. Finding the time is always, always difficult.
