These are some of the most frequently asked questions about me and my work:
Updated May 25, 2017
How do you pronounce your name?
This question comes up a lot. It rhymes with starry and sorry.
How many books will be in the Silver and Orchids series?
At least four.
Do you know who Lucia is going to end up with? Is it Sebastian or Avery?
Yes, I do know. Nope, not gonna tell ya. :)
Will there ever be any more Eldentimber books?
Crazy thing. If you’d asked me a month ago, I’d still be saying no. BUT. Bran told me his story, guys. And it’s pretty awesome. So, yes, there is a fifth Eldentimber book in the works.
How do you write? Do you work with an outline or do you wing it?
I work with an outline, but I’m a lot more informal about it than I used to be. I know the key points–what’s going to happen at the 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and end points, but I let the story roam there as it wants to. Before I get into a book, I know certain scenes that need to take place, and I know the general feel I want. Most importantly, I know my characters, and I let them take the reins. Most of my favorite parts in Moss Forest Orchid happened without any planning.
How do you find time to write?
I have a detailed response in this post: Writing Despite the Distractions
Word has it you’re not going to write any more contemporary books after you finish the Glitter and Sparkle series. Is that true?
Yes. And…no. Sugar and Spice is the last contemporary I’m going to write as Shari L. Tapscott. After that, all my contemporary books will be published under the pen name Charlotte Scott.
Do you do blog interviews?
Sure, I’d love to! Feel free to contact me.
