Can you tell us what your new book is about?
The triangle of the title is three people suffering tragic circumstances in their lives and the healing that inspires so many others when their three paths suddenly converge in a small Irish village.
Can you tell us a little about your main and supporting characters?
Clint Westerly has lost his wife and his will to keep on going. Tanya Wilshire has also encountered a string of personal adversities, any of which on its own would bring others to their knees. And elderly Seamus Harrington has lived under a cloud of derision and been bullied for the past 50 years and more by the fellow townspeople in the little Irish village of his birth.
My book is set in Las Vegas, Rome, Scotland, and Ireland. As an avid international traveler, I chose these particular locations purposefully since they are all places I know well and are a perfect fit for the storyline.
How long did it take you to write your book?
I wrote for months, but, of course, that followed a year or more of tossing things around in my head before actually putting the first word to paper.
What has been the most pivotal point of your writing life?
During my stay-at-home time during the worldwide pandemic, I was able to give enormous time to my writing, giving birth to my latest book, SAVORING THE WORLD: HIT AND MISADVENTURES – a memoir.
What kind of advice would you give other authors?
If you have an urge to write, then keep plugging away. It is a truism that “a writer is a person who writes.” Writing is a lonely business, and there are so many distractions and excuses to be used to put off the hard part: actually putting pen to paper, or, in today’s world, putting your fingers to the keyboard.
