Interview

Hello Deborah,

The girls of Night Owl Romance are pleased that you have granted us an interview

We would love to get to know you

Could you please start by telling us a little about yourself?

My obsession with writing began in 1997, when I started writing a suspense novel about a serial killer who hunts a married woman. That never saw the light of day, but I went on to publish my first short story about a girl who is rescued from her abusive stepfather by her imaginary friends. This story sparked another obsession: writing ghost stories. I've always been fascinated with the paranormal and the occult.

What's your favorite genre to read?

My first love is the horror, especially stories that involve the paranormal or supernatural.

When you have writer's block how do you break free?

I pound out my mental traffic with hard rock, heavy metal, or alternative rock. If that doesn't work, I watch mindless television or get out of the house.

Please tell us what you have planned next?

Right now, I'm in the research phase for my next book, which involves the paranormal and private investigation.

In 5 years, where do you see yourself? In general and in you're writing career.

My goal is to become a full-time freelance writer, novelist and graphic designer.

Is there a genre of book you would like to write but haven't yet?

I've always enjoyed crime fiction and suspense thrillers. I'm thinking about giving that a try. What kind of research do you do for your books? Do you enjoy the research process?

I love the research process. The Internet is the first place I go, followed by Amazon and then the library. Do you outline your books or just start writing?

I just start writing. I've tried to create outlines to work from, but I never stick to them. What was your first published work and when was it published?

My first published work was the 2006 Writer's Blog Anthology, which I edited and published on Lulu.

What would be the best way for readers contact you? Do you have a website? Email address? MySpace site? Blog? Message Board? Group?
