Thank you, Lillian, for reading my books!

This type of storytelling, according to my son, the linguistics major, is called pants. The author writes the story as though it is a pair of pants for the reader to put on. I had never heard of it before, but wanted to try it and from that came Seed Money. At the time, I had no idea I was starting a series, but the writing process was so easy, I tried it again...and again...and again...and now, with book five, again.(less)

Once I map out a story line in my head, my problem is too many ideas bombarding me at the same time. I sleep very little during the writing process—which thankfully is very short—often getting up several times in the night to jot down ideas. I usually give up the fight around 4 AM and head to a computer, where I will stay until 10 PM or so. It makes for some very long days.(less)
