Lois: It helps to be totally right brained. Just don’t ask me anything about algorithms or quadratic equations. I really don’t have trouble moving back and forth from designing to writing. They’re both creative endeavors. I’ll often design in the morning and write in the afternoon. What really gives me trouble is moving from designing cross stitch to designing needlepoint. Unless you’re familiar with both, you’ll have no idea what I’m talking about, though. You’ll just have to trust me on this one. It pretty much fries my brain.
Cassy: Do you still keep up with your handwork? I used to do a lot of knitting. It's really time consuming. I'm not sure I could balance both that and my writing at this point. Do you have a secret?
Cassy: Anastasia Pollack hits the streets in January with Assault with the Deadly Glue Gun. I have a confession to make here, Pollack is my maiden name and my eyes "glued" right onto that! Well, back to the questions. Trouble attacks Anastasia right from the start. You have a wonderful sense of humor. Can you tell us about where Anastasia came from (idea-wise I'm talking here)?
Cassy: Anastasia strikes me as someone who might be with us for a while. Is she planned to show up again in a sequel, or even better than that in a series?
Cassy: How does Assault with a Deadly Glue Gun differ from your other books? And, while you're answering that, would you talk a little about the different genres you have written?
Cassy: What comes next????
Cassy: Lois, please add anything you want: family, pets, hobbies, and so on. Our readers LOVE that. Also please add anything about writing, style, editing, and so on. I hate putting those type of topics into questions for they sound stilted and forced. But, do have at it if it works for you.
