📚 IN DEPTH✏
WITH AUTHOR OF DRAMA & ROMANCE
What are you writing at the moment?
I’m working on MAXWELL SLADE HAS VANISHED, which is due in 2016. It is about the kidnapping of a fitness entrepreneur, and the effect of his disappearance on his wife, brother and co-workers. It also delves into the theme of events not being exactly what they appear to be, and that people’s surface appearances do not always reflect who they really are.
What do you like about writing?
I like everything about writing. I enjoy the whole process – from the initial planning of the story, the completion of the first draft, the editing process, and, the moment when it goes live on the e-book websites. There’s a thrill seeing it all gel together, and when readers offer their viewpoint on my books, I find these fascinating, and always helpful as a gauge for my writing.
You appear to write more short stories, novelettes and novellas than longer works. Will you be writing any more novels apart from THE GREAT HIGH SCHOOL LOVE GAME?
At the moment, I am concentrating more on novelettes, novellas, and short stories, as I find their size works with the stories that I like to write. I always say never say never, but I haven’t planned on writing any novel-length books in the near future.
Apart from writing, what else are you interested in?
I love watching vintage clips on You Tube of films, soap operas and music videos. I also love shopping, and seeing products change from season to season in department stores. Food is also high on the list of loves, with cheesecakes, lasagna and other delicious fare are my favorites. Keeping the house at its best and cleanest is also a happy thing for me; it offers a feeling of refreshment and catharsis that I love.
What is it you love about coffee?
There’s just something about coffee which has always comforted, calmed, and taken me away to other worlds. It is also great as it is versatile – I like it as a mocha, cappuccino, powdered coffee, instant coffee in milk…I could go on, but suffice to say that it is an unconditional part of my life!
Thank you so much for having me on your blog today Tammy!
