I am happy to say not one word. Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? My little sister and I were the youngest of five kids and shared a bedroom through most of our childhood. From the time we were very little she would ask me to tell her a bedtime story. By eight, I was writing.

I just finished it last week but still need to edit:. We have lost not just our home but everything in it, including ourselves. I look outside and see blue sky with a breeze gently blowing the leaves of the huge tree in the front yard. Is it a maple, an oak?
Who knows? I guess there is probably a lesson in that, something to do with taking the time to think before you leap. I know I have to get up and walk away.
This part of my life will be over, and as quick as I have been to act in the past, I am now paralyzed. Before now, I looked forward to new beginnings. The good, the bad and the ugly; I want it all back. I wrote that almost six months ago. It was my friend Julie who came and found me. It was Julie who walked me out of there. I was broken into a million pieces and there was no putting me back together. Not really. Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work? Do you have to travel much concerning your book s?
I would love to have the budget to travel more. Who designed the covers? I did. I love designing the covers. What was the hardest part of writing your book?
I love writing so much that the hardest part is usually having to put it away. Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? Do you have any advice for other writers? Get it all down and then go back. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers? Just that I love hearing what they think.
What were the challenges research, literary, psychological, and logistical in bringing it to life? The internet is so amazing that research has become easy and something I no longer dread. What do you think about e-publishing versus technical publishing? My books are available as both e-books and paperbacks. This novel is over 74, words and was written in fourteen days. I was compelled to write it every chance I got, taking only the necessary breaks to hang with my kids, fix them dinner, and take my daily walk.
As I explained to my girls, 13 and 15, it was like watching a movie and being interrupted. It was okay to pause it for a while, but I had to get back to it.

This was not the first time I have done this. In fact, my debut novel, Searching for My Wand, was written in three or four days, complete with accompanying drawings scattered throughout. My second novel, On a Hot August Afternoon, took three or four weeks, and my third novel, The Salacious Marny Ottwiler, took a good six months, which actually concerned me.
Unlike the movie that played out before my eyes in this latest novel, The Salacious Marny Ottwiler was more like watching a TV series. Speaking of which…. I have also written the pilot of a sitcom I hope to get produced someday soon. Just like with my novels, I have fallen in love with the characters and have a plan as to how the series should continue.
That is not to say that as I write more episodes, the characters will behave in the manner in which I have mapped out. I was certain that the two leads would get together, but it came to a perfect ending before they did, which is fine because it continues the chase. Lastly I have a musical, Room to Grow, that I am also eager to produce.
When we first set out to write this musical, we did so because the director of our daughters many school plays said new material was desperately needed. I was going to have someone drop off a child on her doorstep. Instead it is about an unconventional, growing family who move into the so called perfect neighborhood, only to face a variety of challenges.

The moral to the story, however, is still one of acceptance and the belief that if you pull together you can get through tough times. Because it is a musical that is geared towards families and children, we have yet to find the best way to market it. Lastly, I am in the process of writing a new musical inspired by a combination of things.
This one is intended for grown-ups and would ideally star Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. Dream big, right? Last year I took my older daughter to see American Idiot and enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. The songs and performances were captivating and I left thinking, I could do that!
