Welcome, MC Scout

I'm so glad you're here today, MC. I have a ton of questions to ask, so if you don't mind I'll begin asking them.

First, tell us a little bit about your book, please.

MY LORD BALTIMORE is a vampire tale of love lost only to be found again be it several centuries later. It begins in Philadelphia and heads to Baltimore then ends in Finn’s ancestral home in England. Cambria is the direct descendant of the woman he loved but feared getting close to thanks to his master.

Where do you see yourself in the future? Will you still be writing, or do you have a new adventure on the horizon?

I hope to still be writing as well as traveling and getting more ideas for more stories.

You’ve just won a million dollars. What would you do with it?

Right now, I’d pay off my daughter’s college loans and get that out of the way then I’d buy some land in Wyoming and move there after I had a house built.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?

It would definitely be Wyoming—it’s an amazing state and I love the openness.

You’re in an Italian restaurant. What do you order?

Anything with shrimp in it.

Do you speak a foreign language?

Not really though I do try to incorporate Spanish and German into some of my stories.

How did you spend your first royalty check? Was it a splurge, or something practical?

The first one went to paying for the limo for my daughter’s prom.

Do you need silence to write or can you write through anything?

Not really though I can’t concentrate with MTV on. If they still showed the videos like they did at the beginning, it wouldn’t be a problem but the shows now are annoying.

What frightens you?

Even though I am in awe of Mother Nature’s power, thunderstorms still bother me. The harsher ones make me want to hide and I refuse to get into a shower when one is overhead.

What do you love most about being an author?

I’ve met a great deal of really cool people since I’ve gotten published. I also love the research that goes into a book whether it be historical or otherwise.

Is there anything else you would like to share with us today?

One thing I have always lived by—if you don’t learn at least one thing in a day’s time, the day is wasted.

That's a great thing to consider. I am so glad you stopped by today! Thanks for visiting with us!
