Have you ever wondered what or who inspired me to write. I have always liked reading as it was an escape from whatever bothered me as a child. When my face was buried in some adventure everything else disappeared.I loved the Bobbsey twins, Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew as a child so it’s no mystery that I love writing in this genre.
I read Danielle Steele in my teens and gravitated towards Nora Roberts. I also picked up Jonathan Kellerman and James Patterson as an adult. I never thought I could write like these people. Sometimes the stories were just to heavy for me so I decided comedy was needed in my writing as is evident in all my books.
I have been told that I write like Janet Evanovich. I take that as a huge compliment as I love the Stephanie Plum books. If they met I think Laura and Stephanie would be great friends as they could swap stories on finding dead people and trying to apprehend people who jumped their bond.
The basic thing is that once I started writing I was unstoppable. It’s addictive as smoking, drinking and gambling but doesn’t make you sick. I thinking I’ll be so busy writing that the undertaker will have to drag me off to my grave.
