Collette, how long have you been writing?
Up to that time, I’d toyed with the idea of writing a book but never thought I’d write a romance. All that dialogue, and conflict, and trying to keep points of view straight...ugh.
What inspired you to write your first book?
I'm with you on that one - love my family! What book have you read too many times to count?
Hmm, and there was a recent, rather interesting, discussion with my Regency critique group about historical terminology.
Here’s a blurb of Highlander’s Hope:
She can be found on Goodreads, LinkedIn, and Google+ too. The links are on her webite.
Her Victorian farmhouse and profusion of gardens—English, butterfly, rock, and water— are all testaments to her ongoing love affair with flowers, lace, songbirds, birdhouses, rocks, and of course—teacups! Having dabbled in interior decorating in her youth, Collette graduated summa cum laude from Oregon State University, has a Master's degree in teaching, and is member of RWA, Rose City Romance Writers, The Beau Monde and Love Faith and Hope, Inc.
Some of Collette's favorite things include unique blends of coffees and teas, Cadbury Milk Chocolates, inspirational quotes, and scented candles; especially lavender and vanilla. Her Christian faith, husband, three adult children, and five miniature dachshunds complete her life quite nicely!
When she's not teaching or writing, Collette enjoys amateur photography, bird watching, gardening, interior decorating, rock-hunting, or salmon fishing on the Columbia River.
She'd love to hear from you! Leave a comment on her Blue Rose Romance Blog page, or email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can follow her on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest too! See the links below.
