Q: Fantasy is a difficult market. Why that specific genre?
A: I didn't have a choice. I had been searching for a new creative outlet. Praying day and night to my heavenly father about what he wants me to do. Three months later I had written my first novel. Divine intervention.
Q: You have a successful art career, why switch gears?
A: Art is about growth. After 40 years of photography and painting, I felt I needed to grow in another direction.
Q: Why a woman hero?
A: Women don't get the credit they deserve. Women have a power and mental toughness I admire. I wanted that in my novel.
Q: What's next for your writing?
A: I'm currently working on the third novel of the Iron League Saga as well as a stand alone novel titled Fallen child.
