Q: What's the best part of being an author?
A: Being able to share with today's readers, as well as future generations, the intriguing tales I heard and the details I unearthed while researching a Mississippi river town, its big earthquake, American Indians, slavery, the Civil War and pioneers who made the westward trek in the 19th century.
Q: Will you write another book?
A: Yes! Writing keeps me young and keeps my mind active. Although it is hard work, I love it and yes, I have another book in the wings.
Q: What are some of your favorite books or books you would recommend?
A: For writers, or would-be writers, I would say read, read--every chance you get. Read in the genre you like. But expand your horizons and read other authors, too. For inspiration and fun, read Eudora Welty, my all-time favorite author.
Q: Are you scheduled to speak in my area?
A: Please see the schedule on the Speaker page.
Thank you for your inquiries. I look forward to answering any other questions you may have!
Best to you,
