My first job was writing for a newspaper—who, what, when, where, how and why—the basic elements of every story, fiction or non-fiction. As an academic reference librarian, I helped others in their pursuit of information. As an astrologer, I use the energy of the universe to try to make sense of this world. As a novelist, I find my characters are always way ahead of me at figuring things out. In Odette’s Key to Harmonic Convergence a musical prodigy wants to share her hard-won answers to some cosmic questions with all of us—and maybe Odette is onto something.
Dogs, horses, family and more family—when it reaches cyclone force, I do my writing in the attic of my old Victorian. It’s probably not as practical as Anne’s laundry room. In the attic the cycling and recycling are all just in my head.
