Who is your favorite author to read for pleasure?
I enjoy reading authors of mysteries such as Bill Craig and Carl Hiaasen. I also admire and enjoy the works of Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck.

Do you write on a specific schedule or as the mood strikes you?
Writing for me could best be described as sporadic. When the words are flowing I can’t put down the laptop, I can sit for hours working, yet other times, as all authors can attest, I sit and stare at a blank screen. Where I write is important to me, be it as I sit on beach on Florida Bay observing people and jotting notes or pounding the keyboard while sitting on a boat in Lake Huron sipping a drink.
