What’s your favorite love story of all time?
Romeo and Juliet. I’m a sucker for star crossed lovers.
Is there anything that ruins a good love story for you?
Characters I can’t believe in. I like to feel like I could be friends with
the herione and I like to fall in love with the hero just a little bit.
I’ve been known to consume large quantities of chocolate on Valentine’s Day (okay, most days). What’s your favorite Valentine’s treat?
I’m with you, Audra. I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate. I also have a thing for gummy bears. Go figure.
How would your main character complete this love poem? Roses are red, violets are blue…
Hmm, Mitch, the younger-man hero and love interest in Afterglow is a funny, romantic kind of guy. He might go with something like “my heart dances, when I see you." Marco, from P-Town is is a 'how you doin' kinda guy and a chef. He might go with something like "I love you so much I’ll make you fish stew."
What’s your latest novel about, in 25 words or less?
Afterglow is about a woman of a certain age who discovers that her life doesn’t end with her marriage and that love is terrific the second time around.
