Q & A

1.) If you could visit any time, place, or person, when, where, or who would you visit?
I am fascinated by fashion and would love to be taken back to Elizabethan times and given the chance to examine how garments were constructed in those days.
2.) Besides being an author, what is your fantasy job?
Curator of a fashion/costume museum.
3.) What music, food, drink, rots, etc... do you keep by your side when writing?
Coffee--making it gives me a break and drinking it keeps me going.
4.) Who has been the greatest influence in your life? How?
My dad was a very good, hard-working, and modest man. He set me a good example of how to live my life.
5.) Do you cook? If so, is there any particular dish that you've mastered and would like to share?
I do enjoy cooking, and, in fact, this morning made some jam with rhubarb and strawberries from my garden.
