My next guest is a delightful writer who has written a very interesting spy series. Let's jump right into the interview and get to know Rhys Bowen and her books.
Born and raised in England, lived in many places before settling in California. I'm married to a fellow Brit. We've four children and 5 grandchildren. We love to travel and now live in Arizona in the winter.
How long have you been writing?
I've been a professional writer all my life--last 15 years specializing in mysteries, my favorite reads.
Tell us about the Royal Spyness series, and in particular, about NAUGHTY IN NICE.
This book has already received a starred review from Publisher's Weekly and is a RT Reviews top pick so it's off to a good start.
Not the ideas. They are lining up to be used. It's juggling the whole promotional part with my writing time.
Interesting, and an aspect I'm sure many aspiring authors don't often think about. Any tips you’ve learned about writing you’d like to share?
Yes--only write a book to please yourself. Your book has to read as if you're having a good time writing it.
And work on writing the best book of which you are able. The rest will happen.
My toys--wind up teeth, a couple of tops to spin, Egdar bobblehead and more. I need an excuse to stop and play when things are getting tense.
LOL, truly an original answer. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
To bring about world peace? End hunger? Actually it would be cool to be able to fly.
Quick writing test! Use the following words in a sentence: parchment, glowing, and antelope.
"And our specail tonight," the chef said, waving at the glowing embers of a barbecue, "is antelope haunch in parchement."
LOL, ew. Here’s the part where you thank the people who are supporting you. Let's hear your shout outs.
