1. Are you a morning writer or a night writer?Morning when I’m fresh and the day hasn’t intruded on my brain and eaten away all my creativity. 

2. Do you outline or are you a pantster?
Outline. For a mystery the clues need to be in place to get to the end…at least for me. Also when I plot it frees my brain to do the humor. Writing humor is really hard and takes a lot of thought to pull it off.

3. Which comes first – plot or character?
Plot. If I know what I’m trying to do then I can put in the people to carry it off. And the characters need to fit the story.

4. Noise or quiet when working on your manuscript?
Quiet! I run a fan in the background to blank out any noise and take me out of the moment.

5. Favorite TV show?
Funny mysteries. I love Midsomer Murders. And I love Tom more than John. Also loved Castel the TV show esp the early seasons.

6. Favorite type of music?
Symphony, Christmas, Beach Boys.

7. Favorite craft besides writing?
Gardening! Love to watch things grow and there is nothing better than picking flowers from your garden to put in your house.

8. Do you play a musical instrument?
I wish. It’s all black dots to me.

9. Single or married?

10. Children or no?
Four kids and four grandkids.

11. Pets?Cats. Dr. Watson and Spooky.

12. Favorite place to write?
My desk. I can only write at my desk.

13. Favorite restaurant?
Anyplace that will cook for me and clean up afterwards I’m in!

14. Do you work outside the home?
Yes, at a consignment shop. That’s how I got the idea to write the Consignment Shop series. LOL

15. What was the name of the last movie you saw?
Love Actually. It’s Christmas time and I watch it every year.

16. Favorite outdoor activity?
Hiking and gardening

17. Pet peeve?
Slow drivers. Lord save me.

Get the next book done. LOL
