These are some of the most frequently asked questions about me and my work:
Updated January 4, 2019
How do you pronounce your name?
This question comes up a lot. It rhymes with starry.
Will there be more Silver & Orchids books?
I get this one all the time. I’m so happy you’ve enjoyed the series! Though Lily of the Desert was the last official Silver & Orchids book in the series, I’m working on a companion novel that’s set ten years after Lily of the Desert left off. It will release in the first half of 2019. I’m also working on Greybrow Brothers, a Silver & Orchids spinoff. The first book in that series should release around autumn 2019!
What was your inspiration for Flink?
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?
I loved Eldentimber. They were my first books, and they’ll always have a special place in my heart. But the series is complete. Down the road, I might do something short for Lionel. Maybe. MAYBE.
Do you write under any other pen names?
Yep, I sure do. I write New Adult Urban Fantasy as Shannon Lynn Cook. Learn more in this post: New Pen Name – New Urban Fantasy Series!
How do you find time to write?
I have a detailed response in this post: Writing Despite the Distractions
Do you do blog interviews?
Sure, I’d love to! Feel free to contact me.
How often is your online shop open, and why do you close it?
Quick background for those of you who don’t know: I sell signed paperbacks, book-themed mystery boxes, and other assorted book goodies in my online shop. The reason I don’t keep it open all the time is because it requires a lot of time and attention. I want every single order to be special, and because of that, I craft many of the items in the mystery boxes and personalize each book. I don’t throw these things together. I carefully plan and plot, and I love it. But because so much goes into the orders, from the items to the packaging, I can only work on them when I have a book in editing.
