Q & A

What do you do and Why do you do it? 
I write because, I, like everyone else, have an imagination, and I enjoy putting my thoughts on paper.
Tell us about your most recent work. 
‘My Ideal Partner’ describes how I met, married, and cared for my late husband at home for six years after he suffered two strokes that paralyzed his left side.
Who inspires you?
I’m inspired by many things, places, and events.
What do you consider your “Masterpiece” at this time? 
I don’t call any one work a masterpiece. Almost everything I’ve written is brilliant, in its own way.
What is your motto in life? The Light shines brightest, when the world is at its darkest.
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Name your wildest dream. The one you can not imagine achieving, but would love for it to come true. 
I would love to be a guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor hosting.
What is your favorite quote? 
“Be well. Do good work, and keep in touch.” Garrison Keillor in The Writer’s Almanac
When it is all said and done, what would you like to be remembered for?
I would like to be known for my stylish prose and poetry and lovely singing voice.
Tell us about your next project and when will it be available to the public? 
I plan to publish a collection of short stories set in Wyoming, my home state. I started working on this last year before My Ideal Partner was published ahead of schedule. Since I haven’t had time to get back to it, I don’t know when it will be available. Meanwhile, you can read many of my poems and short stories on my website.
Where can fans purchase your work?
My books can be purchased from Amazon, Createspace, Smashwords, and other sources. On my website, you’ll find a page for each of my books that contains ordering links.

  1. I love her motto! “My Ideal Partner” sounds like an interesting read – I’ll have to check it out on Amazon. It would be interesting to know what her experiences are using Amazon and CreateSpace – I’m always interested to learn more about personal publishing experiences as well. Thanks for sharing!
