Help yourself to something refreshing from the replicator unit, Pam, Before we find out more about your book, to you mind if I ask you a few questions about yourself - first of all can you tell us What do you do for fun when not writing?
PST: When not writing (and even when writing) I absolutely love to read! Although I enjoy a great romance, I’m finding myself more and more drawn into reading spiritual non-fiction. Authors such as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, and Doreen Virtue along with numerous others encourage me to open my mind, heart, and spirit and cultivate a much larger perception of God and this magnificent universe He created. Dancing is also a favorite pastime of mine. There is not much more energizing to my heart and soul than a two-step or waltz across a sawdust covered floor in the arms of a gentleman.
PST: Hmmm…. That’s not easy to say. I’ve had stories begin with a single thought (they say life begins at forty but for Rebecca Sinclair that’s far from the truth – The Inheritance), a statement I make to someone, a dream or when people pop into my brain and start talking.
PST: Many authors interview their characters and plot the story but me? I just started writing one day the book I’d want to read and this hasn’t changed in over thirty years.
PST: Having a little background noise (tv from another room) doesn’t always bother me but with music, I either get irritated or so caught up in it that I’m up out of my chair and dancing so I don’t listen while I’m trying to write.
PST: Success is very personal to each individual and therefore as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is success. Personally I feel successful when I finish a project, whether that is an article, essay, short story, novel or non-fiction book.
PST: Writing is writing…whether nonfiction article or essay, short story or full novel, you ARE a writer! Sometimes life will get in the way and you may want to quit, need to take a break or even a long hiatus from writing but that’s OK; it doesn’t make you less of a writer. Don’t worry about the rules, forget about the market, write the kind of book you want to read, and never give up!
Another great and insightful answer. Thank you so much for being my guest today, Pam, now let's have a look at your book, which I have on my wishlist and look forward to reading.
