I’m over at Deal Sharing Aunt today with a great interview! Here is just one question they asked me.
Do you have a specific writing style?
That’s a great question and one I’ve never been asked! Because I want my characters to be the kind of people my reader might meet anywhere, my writing style is informal. I often include bits of the dialects of Texas and some of the sarcasm that is part me and part of the state that loves to brag about itself.

I’m over being interviewed today at Cozy Up With Kathy . She really had me thinking! Here are just a few of the questions she asked me.
Kathy: What first drew you to cozy mysteries?
TT: I loved Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple books and watched every Murder She Wrote ever made. I would so live in that house in Cabot Cove, even with the crime rate.
Kathy: Do you write in any other genres?
TT: Not yet, but would love to write a Debbie Macomber type of a novel some day. I know that I would write “cozy” in almost any genre because I enjoy creating characters that are around all of us in our real lives.
Read the rest of the interview at Cozy Up With Kathy to find out if I believe in ghosts, what’s always in my pantry and what authors I would invite to dinner.
I’m over being interviewed at Gayle Carline’s blog today. She really gave me some excellent interview questions and it took me days to think about and answer them. When asked if I preferred cowboy boots or flip flops, I had to say flip flops. You would think living in Texas I would go for the cowboy boots, but living in South Texas being cool is better than being cowboy for me. What’s your answer? Flip flops or cowboy boots?
You can read the entire interview here.
Gayle will be visiting my blog on the weekend after Thanksgiving. She is a humor columnist and a mystery writer and has a new book coming out. She is also going to give us a little excerpt of her latest mystery and then spring a pop quiz on you. The winner will get a free copy of her book, so hang on…more details to follow.
Still plodding away at NaNoWriMo. Check out my word count in the side bar.
