**Author Interview #2**
How important is a book cover?
Book covers are like display windows in department stores. They draw you in with the possibilities of what might be behind them. However, if you are happy with what was contained inside takes much more than imagery out front. It takes something that makes you want to turn to the last page.
Have you attended book signings?
Is writing a stress-reliever, a passion, or both?
Writing is my passion. However, it is more of an escape from the boredom and frustration of everyday life, than a simple stress-reliever. I find myself in my own secret place, when my moods match the words on the page.
Has television ever inspired you to write?
For me, there are many different ways and means to seek inspiration. I get inspired to write while walking the streets, observing the "uncensored" world in its unedited reality. The simplicity and uniqueness of a man holding a sign that reads,"need money for beer, have empathy for my honesty" brings me closer to my muse.
Did you have favorite books as a child?
As a child, I would read any book that I came across. However, I have always enjoyed stories about dogs, especially the ones with happy endings. I smile even now, when thinking of Lassie finding her way home.
