What is the smartest writing advice you ever got?

Work to perfect your craft and never decide there isn’t anything more to learn. No writer knows it all. I hope that every book I write will be better than the last one.

What was your biggest break?

Selling a cozy mystery to Barbour Books. That sale kicked off my writing career.

I’m inspired by…

Writers who don’t give up. This business has its ups and downs. Being able to ride out the rough times is the difference between those who have long term careers and those who get discouraged and walk away.

My great adventure has been…

My greatest adventure has come from being a mother. Watching my son grow into a wonderful young man, marry his soul mate, and become a father, has been the best adventure of my life!

The one thing I hope to discover is…

What God has planned for me. I don’t believe I’ve reached the summit of my journey. My goal is to become everything He created me to be.

If I could go anywhere, it would be…

To Missouri so I can be near my kids and my grandson. Thankfully, that’s in the works! We should be there sometime this year.

If you have only…an hour…

I would tell everyone I love how important they are to me. And I would tell my unsaved friends about Jesus.

Describe yourself in one word.

Tenacious.

If your house were on fire, what one thing would you save?

My dog! Hopefully, my husband has already run outside! LOL!

What drives you to succeed?

Believing that God has a good plan for my life. I want to see it come to pass.
