So here’s where I am right now. Sitting down at my
computer and facing a blank screen with the lower toolbar reading Page: 1 of 1
| Words: 0 (actually that’s just gone up to 29 since I started writing this).
As you’ve probably already guessed, I’m at the
start of a new book. I’ve got a stash of notes and character sketches floating
around on my computer and in my brain and a rough plot to work with. Working
title is Making the Running. It will be the fourth at Aspen Valley Racing Stables in
what I think I’ve finally decided to make a six-book series. Share and Share
Alike received a lovely review from someone yesterday who mentioned how she
missed Pippa from Keeping the Peace.
I do too. I know hearing that can be frustrating
as you ask “well, if you miss her why don’t you just write another book about her?”
and the truth is I can only write about those characters when they’ve got
something going on in their lives. Otherwise the book would be pretty boring. But
like I say, I also miss Pippa so when sketching out the remaining books’ plots
the idea came to me of finishing the series up where we started from and that
means going back to Pippa and Peace Offering.
ASPEN VALLEY SERIES BOOK 1-6
Since that project is still three books away, I’m
hesitant to expand on much more than that (I don’t even know for sure what’s
going into the book I’m writing now let alone the last in the series!). But to
that nice reviewer, Danielle, this is just a note to ask you to hang in there.
Pippa will be back!
If I’m brave enough I might try a multiple point of view
and have all my Aspen Valley heroines feature again in the same book (but don’t
hold your breath on that score. I’ve tried and failed with that technique
before so there’s a good chance of it not happening).
I'll keep you posted on how things develop and of any changes which (doubtlessly) will occur.
So what's the big mystery? What about Share and Share Alike has LB Equestrian"so engrossed, promising herself just one more chapter, only to still be there an hour or two later"? And why has she decided a job in the police force is not on the cards for her?

So interviews for me aren't a common occurence, but I figured I like reading interviews with favourite authors (and movie stars, it has to be said) and learning a couple of nuggets of info I'd otherwise never know. Who knows - you might find a couple of things about me interesting. Or laughable... I'll take that too.
So I bit the bullet. Gina from Riding and Writing was very gentle and offered up some questions which really made me pause for thought and aren't the usual "how many words do you write a day?"
