      • Thank you, Lily! I'm presently working on the sixth book (and fifth novel) in my Adam and Grace mystery series. I just completed a wee children's book, which lands June 1. After that, I plan a sequel to my western, Blood and Dust, which will take place around 1905 when my province actually BECAME a province. Lots of political fodder there!

      • I have already changed genres. I thought I would always write contemporary mystery, but in the last year I've published a historical fiction/western (Blood and Dust) and a wee children's book (Magic Mack and The Mischief-Makers). As Yogi Berra said, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." I think I was too focused on the one genre — although I continue to write mysteries (laced with a little love) — to see other inspirational moments and opportunities, at first. Now I try to go with them.

    • If you could have been the original author of any book, what would it have been and why?

      • Oof, just one!?
        I would love to have written Barbara Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible. SO brilliant and epic. And also her Unsheltered, a brilliant allegorical political work.
        I also want to be Dorothy L. Sayers when I grow up. I want to have written (interesting verb tense there) both Gaudy Night and Busman's Honeymoon. Fabulous mysteries interwoven with complex relationships.

    • Have you ever incorporated something that happened to you in real life into your novels?

      • All the time. Some have been minor life or less-minor work events (in journalism) that have inspired the message and ultimately the tale. For example, my husband and I stumbled upon a rusted-out, bullet-riddled Fleetline (car) in the middle of the forest. That discovery, along with some research and wild imagingings, became Two Hundred Bones.

      • I do. There are many good reasons NOT to read reviews, to be sure, but one can learn a lot from a thoughtful review, good or bad.
