Doing family research for a dad she barely knew she has uncovered a few more marriages than she had originally anticipated. And a few more. And again, a few more. Some overlapping (divorces not being as much fun as that honeymoon). Spanning two world wars, jail time and various aliases, the next time someone asks me the question: Living or dead, who would you like to have dinner with? My answer is going to be: this man!

Are my characters not interesting enough to even keep me interested?

Once I have established what the problem is I fix it.

Or start another story that's completely different.

I am often asked when I'm out doing book signings if my books have swear words in them.  Well, yes, they do, although I don't use the F word (I seem to not like 'ph' sounds no matter what the word: fill, fix, phone, elephant, it doesn't matter).

I have asked other authors how often they are asked this question and I always get a puzzled look along with "never." I seem to be an anomaly.
