Interview Questions and Answers
1. What made you want to take on the Peter Pan story and recreate it?
I’m crazy like that.
Seriously though, I had always felt that Hook got the raw end of the deal when it came to the story. He was portrayed as a coward often, but would that be the case for a pirate captain? With a friend’s challenge, I started to write out the how and why of his life and how he changed into the infamous pirate captain that we all know. Still, I wanted to make him more than just a pirate afraid of a crocodile.

2. How do you find time to write?
Every evening, when my kids were finally in bed, I’d sit down with my laptop and write. Sometimes my husband would sit next to me, watching some television show. Othertimes, I’d have Pandora radio running, playing film scores that would help inspire my writing.

3. Do you think you will take on other stories like Peter Pan and give them new life?

I might consider it, but at the moment I have at least two novels within a planned series that I would like to complete first.

  1. Thanks for posting. Any questions? Feel free to ask. Some readers think Second on the Right should be included in the sudden rash of twisted fairy tales, but actually this story was years in the making. :)
