Deceit – Historical fiction, adventure.
Tell us a little about Deceit:
The story centers around recovered lost diaries of a woman working in Whitehall in the infancy of M.I.5 at the turn of the last century. The conflicts she endures at a time when technology was skyrocketing and woman’s rights were still repressed are stepping stones to her achieving equality in a class conscious society.
Who is your favorite character in your novel, and why?
Wow, a very difficult question as being the creator, I am fond of most of the characters. Perhaps I lean towards Elizabeth because she is based on a real life individual that I strived to emulate.
What is your ideal creative environment?
Believe it or not most of my ideas come to me while I’m out walking or just strolling in the Park.
Who/what is your favorite author/book:
That would be Ian Fleming and From Russia with Love.
Who is your literary idol?
Clive Cussler. The old fella is still cranking them out at 80.
What is your guilty pleasure read you turn to for sheer entertainment value?
A Night to Remember by Walter Lord for sheer relaxing, historical value.
Is writing your main creative outlet, or do you have other talents/creative pursuits?
Writing is one of those outlets as is photography.
Name one fun/weird/frightening fact about you that we don't already know:
I am a closet practical joker. I’ve never been caught yet.
What are you working on now?
The sixth novel in the Elizabeth Brunnette series; Journey from Oblivion and the final draft of The Lucey Headron.
What's the most personally challenging aspect of writing?
I don’t really find it challenging but more relaxing for me. Perhaps editing the final draft down to something I am satisfied with.
What was your first reaction when Lazy Day Publishing offered you a contract?
I was really very pleased. Mark genuinely sparked my enthusiasm.
