How did you know you wanted to be an author? I was already a published novelist, but this non-fiction book is a true labour of love. After 25 years working in eldercare, watching professional colleagues and untrained family caregivers struggle to keep their elderly loved ones happy, I knew I had a lot of techniques that could help.
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Be sure your writing skills are excellent. Then, make sure you love your story, and never take “No” for an answer.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices? While writing non-fiction, I only need peace an quiet. Before creating fiction, I put up a sign: CAUTION, ALTERED STATE, close my office door, play music appropriate to the scene I am going to write, relax, allow the characters in my head act out their story, and finally write down what they do, see, feel, and say.
What message to you want readers to remember? I am grateful to you all. I will always be honest and give you my absolute best.
