I'm trying to take this whole promotion part of writing seriously. In so doing, I've asked for a little help from my friends. They were happy to oblige, thankfully!

You can find one of my interviews posted at Nancy Henderson's blog where I talk about writing in general and the gift of creativity. Nancy is a very gifted author herself, with several historical and paranormal romances published with Champagne Books.

Next week, I will also be featured on Sharon Donovan's blog talking up my latest release, Suspicion of Love. Sharon and I just recently got to know each other through the miracles of cyber space and we have found a lot in common. She has a great sense of humor and her guest interview posts are full of her exceptional creativity.

I thought I'd also share the photo Sharon is posting along with my interview since it dovetails nicely with the type of clothing worn in the Edwardian era in which Suspicion of Love takes place. The dress is a circa 1910 ballgown I bought from a former employer at an antique and vintage clothing shop. This photo was taken about 26 years ago - when I was still small enough to fit into the tiny clothes from yesteryear. Ah, those were the days!

I hope you enjoy reading the interviews. I'm off to chase chickens and try to burn a few calories!


  1. Hiya,

    saw your response to Sandra Cormier's challenge to imagine what happened to that forlorn lawnmower. I thought it was very interesting.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed reading it, Adirya! I actually based that little story on the true-life serial killer Ed Gein. He was little old man living on a farm in rural Wisconsin who used to invite women to his home, then kill them and use their body parts to make various furnishings and eat their flesh. Gruesome, eh?

  3. Thanks, Adirya! It was fun to write. For anyone looking for the original post and comment (there's one from Adirya, too), here it is: http://thewritersvineyard.com/2009/07/this-is-not-farm.html.
