1.Where and/or how did you get your inspiration to write "Silver Knight?"
I was used to being very busy and moved to help take care of my dad, which left me with some time on my hands. As a teacher, I was also used to a lot of interaction with my students, so after my move, I missed them. I felt like this book was a way for me to re-connect with them in a new and exciting way. And I always loved the movies Dead Again and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, which both deal with reincarnation in a fun way.
2.What is your favorite book and why?
I don’t have just one particular book as a favorite but rather a series of books: The Dragon Riders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey. It’s an original way to look at dragons and I’ve always wanted to fly on one.
3.What would you like the readers to most know about this book?
While it is a work of fiction, there are many elements that are actually true. I challenge the readers to find where I have actually twisted history.
4.What kinds of challenges did you have with this book?
It is really difficult to complete a novel. It’s kind of easy to write bits and pieces for me. But to actually make it a finished product was what was a challenge.
5.What were the best parts about writing this book?
The best part for me was getting to spend more time with my kids and my dad.
