Definitely! Anything to remind me, not to take myself or life too seriously.
What is your favourite time to write, and why?
Anytime, anywhere! One of the greatest lessons I learned while studying the life of the great composer Bach. Did you know he had twenty kids? He was a college professor, a husband, a father, a Christian who played music at church. All this, and he still found time to compose masterpieces that speak to us… Read more »
What is your secret weapon?
The rosary. I pray it daily and truly believe it is the key to my creativity. So much grace is poured out to us through the rosary. We all need grace, and I want to grab up as much of it as possible.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What colour would you be and why?
I would be a magic crayon. As you draw a line, it would change through all the colours of the sunset. Any ideas on how to make that work?

Which are the five words you would like to be remembered by as a writer?
I want my writing to be considered lyrical, elegant, inspiring, moving, and funny. But I will tell you a secret; I’m the least funny person living in my house. I have my family to thank for constantly reminding me to infuse a little bit of humour into my writing.
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
I would freeze time, so I never rush and could always enjoy each moment. But just between you and I, I think I have a superpower? Picture this. I’m listening to Duck Tales play on the T.V blaring out on top-notch, laughing at all the funny parts while stirring the spaghetti sauce, simultaneously pulling one… Read more »
If you could tell anything to your younger writing self? What would it be?
Keep a notebook! Just a plain old spiral notebook. Write everything down! You think you will remember great ideas, thoughts, inspiration, character sketches, but most times, you forget. And sometimes, you don’t realize you had a great story idea until you read your notes later.
