I’m a voracious reader, have since since I first learned my A, B. C…and over the years my tastes have naturally changed. I write spiritual fiction, and so, when I need a light break, I will pick up any decent book I can find around and dive into it. However I find that even the well-crafted books I read don’t stay with me unless they trigger deeper thoughts and feelings within my heart.
Today writers are urged to produce, produce, produce…I have never followed the mainstream, and don’t care a damn about this dictum at all. I write what I love and I take as much time as I need to finish a manuscript – Whip of the Wild God took me 20 years to complete (7 major revisions and much lag time in-between); Krishna’s Counsel which will be published this year will have taken me 8 years or more, and Copper Moon, my third novel, was begun in 2000 in the foothills of the Himalayas…just saying!
