My editor has the Sticking Point manuscript in her hands and promises to have it back to me next week. Of course I want to drop everything else and "fix" it and get it off to the publisher. Sticking Point is the fifth and final novel in the Logan Hunter series. While I absolutely love Logan and most of the characters who've shown up over the course of the series, I feel that this book brings her full-circle and seems a great place to leave her behind and move on to other projects.
Having said that, I am decorating for Christmas now, a little earlier than usual, but I'm not as fast as I once was and I have oodles of stuff. Christmas is my favorite time of year because it brings out the best in everyone and and provides many opportunities to hug and tell folks we love and appreciate them. Let me state here and now how much you guys mean to me. Stay tuned for a late January Sticking Point release. This cover is a photograph taken by North Carolina's own Jason Penland. Isn't it gorgeous?

How much of yourself is hidden in the characters in the book?
What challenges did you face while writing this book?
Wow! Interesting story, for sure.
What did you bring to the writing of this book from your own life?
What do you think is the greatest lesson you’ve learned about writing so far? What advice can you give new writers?
If I have to choose one piece of advice, I’ll side with Stephen King: learn your craft. Learn what the components of a story are, and find stories that do those well and those that do them badly – and understand the difference. Then work at doing it yourself, and keep doing it, to refine your craft and constantly get better.
We all know how important promoting our work has become. How do you get the word out both off and online?
Can you tell us your future writing goals/projects?
There’s an upcoming sequel to FORWARD TO CAMELOT, where my heroine Cady (who helps save JFK from assassination in the first book) takes on her next challenge – competing as a celebrity on a live television ballroom-dance competition. But the time travel she did in CAMELOT has affected what’s happening in the world now, and it’s somehow connected with the fact that a lot of people on her show are turning up dead …
Where can folks learn more about your books and events?
Are your books available in print and ebook formats?
