Secrets, secrets.  What was my “first ever” book, and why?  (Hint, long out of print, you usually won’t see it in my current bio-notes.)  Do I claim a specific writing style?  Does my novel TOMBS:  A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH have an ultimate message for readers (and what is the relation of TOMBS to what dramatists call “the five act structure”)?  In the process of coming up with a title, how did TOMBS differ from THE TEARS OF ISIS?  And now the answers, to questions I wouldn’t have dreamed up myself and many, many more have been revealed, courtesy of blogger extraordinaire Fiona Mcvie on AUTHORSINTERVIEWS.

And maybe a little more will be there on ISIS as well, or how Peter Lorre might have made a good “Ghoul-Poet.”  If curious, press here.  (And if interest is piqued by what you find, links are provided at the bottom for pre-ordering TOMBS as well as ordering THE TEARS OF ISIS — or if in a hurry, just click on their pictures on this page in the center column.)

  1. Very interesting –enjoyed the capsules of chapters (one sentence each) very tantalizing! Earlier on, you mention being invited to submit some poems for a book and say (characters/ideas?) “… from that book have popped up again and again in future writing, so I think it was a rewarding experience on several levels.”
    And I like that you mention this because you didn’t know that it wasn’t necessary to put in all that work for a series of poems –sometimes doing more than needed is quite a boon for the writer.

  2. Marge, thanks! On the capsules of chapters, did you recognize that you’ve read two of them in THE TEARS OF ISIS, about the “secret tapestries” (Mara’s Room) and the “woman frozen for thousands of years” (The Ice Maiden)?
