For those of you joining us from previous weeks, welcome back! For those of you just joining in, welcome to Romance Weekly where each week a bunch of us authors will answer the same three questions and you get to hop around from blog to blog and learn a little more about us. πŸ™‚ This week’s questions are brought to you by a brand spankin’ new author, the lovely Nina Mason. I’m currently reading, and thoroughly enjoying, her debut novel, Queen of Swords. You really should check it out. πŸ™‚ OK, back to this week’s questions. Ready? Let’s do this.

1. How does your writing impact your inner life?

I would say I began writing novels as a way to help me heal from losing both parents so close together. Eventually, it became as necessary as breathing and in the six years I’ve been doing this, my need for it has not waned one bit.

2. How do you hope your books affect your readers?

My only wish is to provide a brief escape from the routine of daily life. I’m an all around happy person and I have a wonderful family, but sometimes the work week is a bit much and I need to fly off to a faraway land and to another time. I hope I can provide that to others as well. πŸ˜€

3. Has anyone ever told you your book changed their life? If so, how?

Good Lord no. And I can’t imagine it ever would. Come away with me for a spell, sure, but change their life? Nah. I’m not writing anything that impactful, and I’m down with that. πŸ˜‰

Ok, that’s it for this week! Keep on hippty hopping along now to see how Sarah Hegger answered the questions. Laters babes!

    I began writing to transmute pain, too, Kate. It’s a powerful elixer.

    Losing my mom last year was bad enough. I can’t imagine losing both parents close together. I’m glad writing became your outlet.

    It’s incredible what writing can do, and helping with loss and grief is certainly a great thing. Really enjoyed your answers πŸ™‚
