What’s the hardest part of writing romantic suspense?
Donna: For me, getting the romantic part in! Although I’m finding with every romantic suspense book I write, it’s getting easier.
When do you find time to write?
Donna: I am a kept woman in that I don’t have to work outside the home. My husband is very supportive of my writing. I think he’s figured out that if I don’t write, he’ll have to live with a crazy woman.
What is your favorite spot for reading or reflecting on your current work-in-progress?
Donna: A local coffee shop. Away from the distractions of home, I am most productive. I have a standing appointment to write there on my calendar for every Monday morning to get the week started out right.
What’s your go-to when you need a pick-me-up to keep writing?
Donna: A cup of coffee, usually around three in the afternoon.
