It’s always fun to catch up, and we haven’t done one of these for a while, so…
What are you reading?
Fiction or nonfiction?
What are you enjoying most about the book?
I’m deep into HOLLOW KINGDOM by Kira Jane Buxton. Normally, I steer clear from Apocalypse type novels. I’ve never even watched an episode of the Walking Dead. What attracted me to this funny, off-beat, heartwarming story was not the cover, or blurb, or industry praise. It’s narrated by a crow. Brilliant!
What was the worst fashion choice you ever made?
(I really did have a polyester suit. Oh, the horror.)
What author, past or present, would you most like (or have liked) to have dinner with? You get to pick the meal. What would you select?
What ice-breaker question would you ask the author to get the conversation rolling?
“Let’s have some new clichés!” – Samuel Goldwyn
What fiction clichés irk you most?
What’s your favorite candy?
What candy would the Lead in your WIP choose, and why?
Happy April Fools’ Day. Are you more prankster or prankee? What’s the best prank you ever pulled…or that got pulled on you?
How many hours per day/week do you write? Ballpark.
How many hours per day/week do you read? Ballpark.
Do you wish you could write/read more? Or are you happy with your schedule?
Last Tuesday marked the start of a new endeavor for me: teaching a 5-week course on serial killers. I never tire of the subject. To some, it may seem like a strange passion/obsession, but all aspects of murder and forensics fascinate me.
Apart from the craft of writing, what subject(s) are you passionate about?
If you could choose only one title, what was your favorite book of 2021?
How did it stand apart from all the other books you read?
Any favorites this year yet?

If we were to read your WIP or last published book, who would we meet for a main character?
Or tell us about the main character in the book you’re reading.
Why should we care what happens to the MC? What makes them special?
If you’re struggling for an answer, think: logline or elevator pitch.
