Hello Edie! Glad you dropped by for a visit. Let me start out by saying I love your blog and never miss a post. 🙂 First question:
Which author would you never get tired of, and why?
Edie: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I love the way he approaches the human condition and explores it through a variety of settings and characters. He makes me think outside the box and approach situations from different directions.
I’m such a big Sherlock Holmes fan myself. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote such great villains in his stories.
Who is your favorite fictional villain?
Edie: Hands down it’s Professor Moriarty. He’s a perfect foil for Sherlock Holmes. He’s smart, he’s believable, and he has motivation for the way he is.
Especially in The Return of Sherlock Holmes. I’ve noticed you are involved in a lot of writing-related activites from blogs to conferences.
What project are you currently working on?
Edie: My newest book for military families, While My Soldier Serves released yesterday so I’m focused on promotion, interviews and sharing about it’s release.
I know this new release will be very encouraging for anyone connected with the military. Thanks so much for being our guest today, Edie! Please leave a comment for a chance to win “While My Soldier Serves.”
