Get to know the writer:
1. What is your novel about? Eanie, Meanie, Minie, No! is about a woman overcoming past fears to save a friend and reclaim love.
2. What genres would you say this story is in? Romance, suspense, and thriller. There is a reunion with an old boyfriend, someone stalking the heroine, and a psychological bent to the antagonist.
3. How would you describe this story in two words? Romantic Thriller
4. What movie have you seen the most in your life? I’d have to say all of the Lord of the Rings trilogy movies because my husband is a huge fan and we watch them every Christmas break. However, I’m a huge fan of The Holiday, all the Jason Borne movies, and Dirty Dancing. In other words, my tastes are all over the board.
5. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?) Believe it or not, Amazing Grace. My faith is important to me and this song says it all, the good, the bad, and the forgiven.
6. Do you have an all-time favorite novel? I don’t really have an all-time favorite. It’s usually whatever I’m reading or writing at the time.
7. What motivated you to write this story? That’s the million dollar question, isn’t it? To be honest, I seem to remember being with a group of writers discussing what motivated each other to write and nursery rhymes popped into my head. As I drove home, the image of children using this rhyme to pick sides came to me and the negative aspects of what it could mean. After that, my insane imagination went crazy.
8. If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be? My great grandmother. I loved listening to her tell stories about her life.
9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about? Sewing, knitting, crochet. I love creating things.
10. What influenced you to enter your story to get performed? I wanted to hear it through someone else’s voice. Elizabeth Rose Morriss did an amazing job.
11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers? While we all need constructive criticism to make our work the best it can be, DON’T let anyone’s comments stop you from writing. There are many wonderful readers out there who will give you the input you need to tweak something. Unfortunately, there are also many who live to put other people down. Those are the ones you smile, say thank you for the comment, and walk away. If the comment, despite being phrased in a mean spirit, has merit, work with it. If it doesn’t, let it go and move on. Whatever you do, write. The more you do, the better you will become.
