Interview: Infinite House of Books

Interview with the Author

What initially got you interested in writing?

The stories my parents read to me when I was a very small child interested me in writing. I know this because I started writing before I could read. I scribbled “stories,” and my dad would “read” what I wrote. He must have made up good ones because I have always seen myself as a writer.

How did you decide to make the move into being a published author?

There is, for me, a distinction between private and public writing. I have a huge “white elephant” in the form of more than forty journals, beautiful books, filled with my words, other peoples’ words, pictures, and keepsakes that I will never share. I don’t even, myself, want to open them! That’s private writing.

With everything I have published, — short stories, articles, blog posts, novels, even poetry — the difference happens when I believe I have written something that could be meaningful to others.

What do you want readers to take away from reading your works?

After reading one of my historical novels, I hope my readers end up with a deeper respect for those who lived long-ago, seeing them as real people, not fantastical archetypes from Hollywood or us in funny clothes.
