 THE AUTHOR SCOOP

Read any good books lately?My favorite reading is science fiction, there are new good books coming out every day.  Look at Sharon Shinn, Tamora Pierce, Ann Bishop, and so many more talented women fiction writers.If you had to boil your book's message down to one sentence, what would it be?Serve the Light, trust the Light, make a difference in the world with who you are and what you do.

What are you working on now?I prefer to keep future books a secret until they are finished.  No one will know until the manuscript is mailed in.Do you eat your vegetables?I have been a vegetarian since 1983.  I do eat my vegetables.If you had a superpower, what would it be?Wonder Woman, of course.How long did it take you to write this book?  I have been working with herbs for over 35 years, so you could say it took that long to write it.
