Hello! Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today! It’s such a pleasure to chat with you. So tell me…
Q) Is your book part of a series? If so, can you tell us about it?
No, this is a stand-alone short story. I tend to think of it as part of my “Weather Series”, although there’s nothing official. This book is about an avalanche. I have one about a tornado and an earthquake. I’ll be featuring those too.
Q) What was the hardest (or easiest) scene to write?
Having my hero, Tolliver, survive an avalanche. I had to first research if it was possible and that’s when I began to read about how parachutes are used to help rise above the snow.
Q) What type of research did you do for your book?
Lots and lots of reading! I looked up all sorts of online skiing protocols to find the do’s & don’ts.
Q) Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?
Both. I like writing the stand-alone stories, but I’m also trying to find a way to build a great body of work that entertains people.
Q) What are your upcoming projects?
I’m working on a story of a man, dealing with mother issues, who finds the man of his dreams (only he didn’t realize he was into men).
