A good friend and member of my writing group, Saloma Furlong, has just posted a short interview with me on her website. She poses a number of questions about my writing process, how I look at it and how I experienced it. Check it out here, if you are interested.
We are offering a drawing for the chance to win a free copy of The Blistering Morning Mist, so if you don’t already have a copy, here is your chance to try for a free one.
Saloma and I first met at a writing conference almost five years ago. At that point we lived quite far apart, she in New England and me in Northern Virginia. When Wayne and I moved to Harrisonburg later that year, I was surprised to see Saloma at the Farmer’s Market. Was she visiting the area again? I gathered up my courage to approach this established author, and sure enough, she had been eyeing me too, thinking I looked familiar.
She was not visiting. She and her husband had also just moved here, and thus began our friendship, two people new to the community, looking for connections. We discovered quickly that we had much in common in addition to writing–gardening, baking, reading, traveling. We were both looking for a group to support us in our individual writing projects, so we decided to begin meeting together. Now it seems hard to imagine that we haven’t known each other forever. How wrong one of my former clients was, who declared that one can’t make new friends after they turn fifty!
You can read here about her two already-published books and the one that is currently in process.
