These are some of the most frequently asked questions about me and my work:
How do you pronounce your name?
This question comes up a lot. It rhymes with starry. (sh-are-ee)
What was your inspiration for Flink, the dragon from Silver & Orchids?
Let me introduce you to Gunther, my three-year-old Saint Bernard. A few of his interests include food, sleeping in the sunshine, and ignoring basic commands. He dislikes moving water, cold weather, and chew bones that come in contact with the ground. Also, when he was a puppy, he hiccupped every time something gave him a fright. Thankfully, Gunther is not an elemental Saint Bernard, so he never burned down our house.
Will there be any more Eldentimber books?
Yes! Genevieve of Dragon Ridge is the next Eldentimber book, and I’m sharing it on the blog as I write!
Will there be any more Silver & Orchids books?
There was supposed to be a spinoff and a companion novel. I’m afraid it didn’t work out.
Do you do blog interviews?
Sure, I’d love to! Feel free to contact me.
Do you have advice for aspiring authors?
I get this question often, and I’m going to write a page on the topic very soon! In the meantime, I suggest you hop on over to the NaNoWriMo official website, find out when the next event is, and commit to writing your book. There’s all kinds of info and encouragement over there, so I know you’ll be in good hands.
