Goodreads asked Barbara Freethy:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Barbara Freethy Getting to share my overactive imagination with others :-) I love to make up stories. I have done it since I was a kid. And books are the ultimate escape, both for the reader and the writer. When life got boring, I made up my own adventure, and I still do. It's a great job. It's hard though. It's not easy to get from page one to the end. It takes a lot of stamina. Many people have ideas and can write a chapter or two, but putting a cohesive story together over several hundred pages is a huge challenge and anyone who gets to the end of a book should enjoy at least one moment of pride and satisfaction!
