1. A common misconception entwined with authors is that they are socially inept, how true is that?
Authors work alone a lot. Honestly, it means we need social interaction more because we don’t get it. A lot of authors may be introverts but they just need quiet time to recharge. No, authors aren’t socially inept, in fact when I attend conferences authors are usually longing for social time with readers and other authors.
2. Do all authors have to be grammar Nazis?
No! Plenty of authors are flexible about it. Some sentences work, even if they are technically fragments. This is why hiring an editor is so important (if self-pubbing)…having someone to check the grammar and make sure any rules broken work…
3. If you could have been the original author of any book, what would it have been and why?
Jane Austen’s Persuasion….I just love how you can have a story where people are doing what they think is best and there is still conflict and problems. It’s very much like life can happen.
4. What makes this particular genre you are involved in so special?
There are a lot of dysfunctional families portrayed in the media. I love the idea of writing close families that look out for each other. They’re not perfect but they are trying!
5. How important is research to you when writing a book?
Thanks to the Internet, research is not as hard as it could be. It’s important to get facts and details right. Social media also helps, you can ask people who live in a certain location to answer various questions or even beta read.
6. What works best for you: Typewriters, fountain pen, dictate, computer or longhand?
Laptop
7. When did it dawn upon you that you wanted to be a writer?
When I was young. I was always making up stories.
8. What inspires you to write?
The characters talk to me…makes me crazy until the story is out.
9. How often do you write?
I try to write daily, with exceptions for holidays, vacations, sick time, and then there are days when editing/promotion take priority.
10. Do you have a set schedule for writing, or are you one of those who write only when they feel inspired?
I do my best to keep a schedule. If I could just write the rest took care of itself, it’d be so much easier. But it’s my job so sometimes you have to face the blank page and find the inspiration for that day.

Obsessed with Jane Austen and Downton Abbey, Zoe writes modern day stories of intense love with strong yet complicated characters. She loves being near the water and island living is a dream. Her writing is supervised by demanding feline critics. A small-town recluse, Zoe travels rarely for family visits but explores the world through her stories.
