Here is a small portion of that interview:

What do you like most about writing and being a published author? I still get a thrill every time my publisher sends me a new book cover or when the postman drops off a carton of new books. I’m amazed sometimes to think that something that sprang from my imagination is bringing enjoyment to someone else! I love that.

What do you like least? More than anything else, writing—and promoting my writing—is work! I wish I didn’t have to think about sales numbers or marketing plans, but you know what? It’s all part of the business.
