Answering your Questions

Last week, I asked you for questions, either about my latest release, 'Changing the Future' or about writing in general. I was delighted to receive so many interesting questions, in fact too many to answer in just one blog-post. So I've divided the questions into two sections.
Today, at Heroines with Hearts, I'm answering those specifically linked to 'Changing the Future', and tomorrow I'll be answering the more general questions about writing and getting published.
Hope you'll drop by to see my answers -

Just as a teaser, here are some of the questions about my novel:

The volcano itself is a powerful image. Can you give us a few hints of how you used the symbol throughout your new book ‘Changing the Future’?

What attracted you to the idea of making your hero a volcanologist?

How did you research what volcanologists do? And do such experts share certain characteristics which you could show in your novel?

What was the hardest part of writing ‘Changing the Future’, and what was the easiest?

Tomorrow's blog will contain my answers to these questions (and more):

Your writing career has spanned decades. Aside from the obvious (electronic publishing, small presses, etc.) what do you feel has changed most about the romance genre in that time?

When you're working on a new book, do you outline ahead of time, or write as you go along?

Why do you write contemporary romance versus other types of romance, and would you consider expanding into other areas?


  1. Can't wait for the answers.

  2. Half of the answers are already there on the link I have to Heroines with Hearts, Em!
