Q: What's a misconception about midlife that you'd like to clear up?
A: That life declines after 50. I'm sixty and--although the body takes a toll--I'm more clear about my life than I've ever been. I am stronger as a person, I am happier, and feel more successful than ever before.
Q: If you could live the life of one single character in your story, who would it be and why?
A: I think Rowan, January's great-grandmother. Though she doesn't make much of an appearance in Weaver's Web (since January is on vacation), I love her character. She's witchblood, over two hundred years old, and a powerful, confident character who helps January learn as her powers blossom out.
Q: Tell us a bit about your story and why you wrote it.
A: Paranormal investigator and witch January Jaxson, and her wolf-shifter boyfriend Killian O’Connell, take a vacation for Valentine’s Day and find themselves in a search for their hostess’s missing sister.
I had an abusive childhood, an abusive first marriage, and so I know all about starting over. I've learned a lot about living life without a safety net, and about taking those lemons and making lemon meringue pie out of them. Sometimes, the baggage spurs you on to become stronger and more secure in yourself.
