The Marchioness of Wick is about to get a second chance at life…whether she wants it or not.

Encouraged by her dynamic American sisters-in-law, the shy royal decides to start over in New York City. After landing a job with an interior designer, Claire reconnects with the first-and only-man she ever loved, Dr. Ben Hayek. Can they build a new love from an old flame? Or will a bitter past and a complicated future stand in their way?
Thank you so much for having me stop by celebrate my latest release, IN LOVE AGAIN. I was recently asked to answer a few questions in the character of the book’s heroine, Claire Heyworth Barnes, and I thought the same questions would be a great way for new readers to get to know a little bit more about me. Then, just to keep things lively, I asked my seven-year-old son to give the answers:
Describe your mom in five words or less:
A good cook (good at cooking cookies)
Good at drawing
Can you share a typical day in the life of your mom?
Well, first you wake me up. I get dressed. You drive me to school. Then you go to the public library. Then you pick me up from school and then we go to Starbucks. Then we come back home. There are so many ‘thens’!
What three words come to mind when you think of your mom’s books?
I think that you’re working really hard on your books and I hope you can publish this book.
What do you find most exasperating about your mom?
Uuuum. When you take the iPhone away from me!
If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?
To have super powers.
What’s one thing your mom won’t leave home without?
What does your mom like to do when she’s not writing books?
That’s a hard question. We do drawings.
Can you share your dreams for the future in five words or less:
What’s that supposed to mean?
Addendum: I have to say, seeing myself through my son’s eyes was fun, but it was also a wonderful exercise in self-awareness and how others see us. It turns out IN LOVE AGAIN is also about how we see ourselves versus how we appear to those around us. Do you ever feel like the person you present to the world is different from the person you think you are inside? If so, do you think this dichotomy changes or disappears as you get older? For better or worse?
I’m thrilled to give away 3 e-book copies of IN LOVE AGAIN, to any readers who comment. Thanks again for having me!
About the Author:
I write novels. I think about writing novels. I plot novels. I read (way too many) novels.
This is a relatively late-in-life development, especially when I read about authors who wrote their first book in college.
I did not do that. I am not saying I’m Grandma Moses or anything, but I wrote my first manuscript from 2004-2006 then let it stew for a while (that’s code for ‘had another baby’).
In 2010, I started writing in earnest. I aim to write three full-length novels per year,
with the occasional novella or other project thrown in to keep things lively.
