Getting my Nerd On

The CollectorThe past few weeks have been busy, and the next few will be busier still.  I have been working hard on the novelization of The Collector, but when Samantha Liggett over at We the Nerdy asked to interview me I was really pleased.  Her thoughtful questions made me even happier that I had agreed to it.  We talked about the Southern Gothic genre, and Oklahoma, and some things I had written.  We even talked some about what is next for Junie Rae and Granny Enid.  (No spoilers!)

Samantha we very gracious and insightful, and she even posted some reviews of The Collector and Counting Crows.  You can read her reviews here.

The interview spanned about seven hours of our day.  Samantha was traveling, and I was writing, and we both took breaks from those things for her to ask me some thoughtful questions, and I would try to come up with an equally thoughtful reply, and a couple of times I think I may have pulled it off.  Most of the time, though, I prattled on and overshared.  Which is exactly what I do in Real Life, too, so it is an accurate profile of me.  You can read the full interview here.

I will keep this post short so I can get back to Junie Rae.  [She has just met Rutland Whitfire (who will play a big role in the novel), and Junie just stood up to Granny Enid–who did not much care for that–so I really need to get back to the story.]
