    Thanks for everything Morgen. Maybe I can interview April someday for … we’ll do virtual coffee and talk.

      I’m sure she’d love to. In fact she’s having some friends join her for a forthcoming anthology (hopefully by the end of the year). 🙂
      I’ve added a link (at the end of your bio) to your spotlight – sorry, forgot earlier (working today) 😦

    Alison, I love your wonderful sense of humour. Your memories of your mom and her stories remind me of mine, too: she’d tell us tales of growing up that my sisters and I found fascinating. I do think our parents plant that love of reading and writing is us when our soil (imagination) is already rich. How lucky are we!

      Thanks Cathy. I agree completely. I think the first words I read were on the spines of my parents’ books when I used to climb the bookshelves.

    Alison, great blog. Like Cathy, I found the mention of your mother’s life in England during the War fascinating. Have you ever thought of writing a novel based on her life and experiences during that horrific time? Oh, the tales she probably told you.

    Alison, great interview! And chocolate helped me too with the rejections. And Louis L’Amour is one of the classics and a favorite of mine. I actually have Under a Texas Star in my to-be-read pile, now I just need to find some time to read it. I have to say I love the title and the cover. They really seem to fit together. Looking forward to reading it!

    Good interview Alison and Morgen! I like it when an author follows their muse and doens’t stick to one genre. I think when you write the books that are interesting to you they are better written than books you”have to” write.

    Thank you Suzie. Chocolate is a great solace and coffee and great reviver.

    Gloria, funny you should mention it, but I do have a story based on my mother’s stories of the war – not to mention my undergraduate thesis on Women in the Military in WWII. I should take it out again and work on it. It’s novella length and I wasn’t sure what to do with it at first. Fortunately, the novella is making a comeback.

    Cheers – Alison
