Tell us how much of yourself you write into your characters.
Truthfully, Janet, not much. Some of my characters may think, act, or react the way I would, but I don’t generally put autobiographical material into my novels.
What is the quirkiest thing you have ever done?
Crashed my bike into the railroad tracks
When did you first discover that you were a writer?
I’ve written stories since I was very young, and I wrote nonfiction for many years as an adult. But I seriously began writing fiction and working toward publishing it at the age of 45.
What kinds of books do you enjoy reading?
Mystery, suspense, humor, romance, historical novels.
What is the accomplishment that you are most proud of?
My family. All of my six children and eight grandchildren make me proud.
What is your favorite food?
What is the problem with writing that was your greatest roadblock, and how did you overcome it?
Finding time to do other stuff! I make lists and schedule my time, but there is never enough. Delegating is highly underrated.
Tell us about the featured book?
The Lady’s Maid is the first book in my new Prairie Dreams historical romance series. Elise Finster accompanies her young British mistress, Lady Anne Stone, on a voyage to America in 1855. Lady Anne’s father has died, and her Uncle David is the new Earl of Stoneford—if he steps forward and claims the title. But David disappeared into the American West when Anne was a baby. Now it’s up to her and Elise to find him. They join a wagon train in Independence, Missouri, not realizing they’re leading a killer straight to David.
