What do you read? As for fiction, I read contemporary women, historical, general, some westerns with a quirky angle, short stories, and humor. Non-fiction varies, but mostly Christian living, Bible studies, and devotionals.
Why do you write? Just can't help myself and don't want to :-) Seriously, it's the way God made me, and, since He made me this way, I feel right doing it. I want to use whatever talent God endowed me with to glorify His name.
Fun writing factoid (not technically a question, I know): I often change a character's name three or four times before I feel it's right for them. I think it was easier picking names for my three children!
One more thing: Check out Double Header on Amazon and/or Barnes and Noble. Read the reviews, and you'll find out it's not really all about baseball. :-)
