Windy And Raine Learn To Fly

  1. Who are your books mostly dedicated to? I believe everyone who wants and believes in hope and inspiring others but letting them know, bad things happen but eventually it’s ok because we learn and realize others go through similar or the same things.
  2. Tell us about your writing style, how is it different from other writers? I like to write conversationally, as though we’re sitting around a table with a group of friends sharing, instead of talking at, or with a writing method of teaching. That’s just my philosophy, I think talking is teaching, because everyone learns that way.
  3. How much of yourself do you put into your books? Everything I can. I think all our paths are meant to be shared for many reasons, and I think we’re better people when we communicate.
  4. How much of yourself do you put into your books? My family, and every person that has crossed my path whether for hours, minutes, days or years, I have gotten something from everyone.
  5. Is writing book series more challenging? This being my first series I would have to say it’s easier actually, because your characters and boundaries are already there for the 2 and third book, you have a direction, you can be more imaginative with the storyline and where you want to take or grow them.
  6. Did the thought to give up writing ever occur to you? No never to me, it’s a gift not a talent and for that I am grateful.
  7. Are you friends with other writers? Yes I think it helps in any job to befriend someone who relates, but writing is personal, that being said all writers do face similar challenges at one time or another, writers block, discipline, sleepless nights while your on a roll, stuff like that,
  8. How critical are you in your evaluation when you are reviewing someone’s work? Honest, but not harsh, I think that does no good, and can discourage people enough to give up, for some, it doesn’t take much, and that would be awful.
  9.  Do you keep a diary? Doesn’t everyone? (Laughing)
  10. What does the word ‘retirement’ mean to you? Do writers ever retire? Finding something new to do. We are constantly reinventing ourselves for one reason or another, and I think most people continue that when they leave where they’ve been for a time. I don’t think as long as we can interact we ever retire.
  11. If you die today, how would want the world to remember you? Someone who loved Jesus above all else, and that somewhere if you look deep inside there is good in everyone, and we all learn until our last breath.
  12. Which of your novels best describes you as a person? Layers of the Heart, it’s non-fiction and there is one story in each chapter about my life, so you can replace it with your own story.
  13. Are you working on something new at the moment? Yes I just finished the third book in the children’s trilogy “Windy and Raine’s exciting Adventure” and I am working on my sequel “Layers of the Heart The Journey Continues.”
  14. When can the readers expect your next book in print? It’s with the illustrator now so February. Fingers crossed.
  15. Tell us about an interesting or memorable encounter you had with a fan? I had done a meet and greet in Manhattan, and a gentleman that was there came up to me, very large man hugged me, thanked me and cried and said I changed his life forever, while holding my hand ever since he stopped hugging me, very sweet, humbled but slightly scary.
  16. Does fan mail still excite you as much as it did the first time you received it? Every single time, but I look at it as encouragement and conformation not fan mail.
  17. If you could live anywhere in the world, which country would you choose and why? Canada, I love British Columbia, along with snow, cold, water, and Mountains.
  18. What are the non-fiction genres you enjoy reading? Christian and Spiritual books.
  19. What weather inspires you the most, in terms of bringing out your literary best? Fall, It takes me and my breath away.
