Today I am making a stop at Näna's delightful nook in cyberspace, By the Way. She was kind enough to host me for a review and a mini interview. I've known Näna for over two years now, and she can turn the simplest of occasions into an unforgettable story. (Not to mention she's a fabulous party planner, though she would never own it.) She asked some wonderful questions, and I only hope my answers did them justice. We've been discussing Violets Are Blue a great deal, so hop on over and join us! Who knows? You might learn something new . . .
Where/when did you first get the idea to write a book?
I was particularly interested in the story of the Titanic during the summer of 2010 (some might call it an obsession). I had read the books about the tragic sinking; now I wanted to write one for myself. But the problem was that there were already far too many novels, journals, and other stories written about characters who were on the ship itself. I desired to write about the Titanic, but there was no need for another book of this manner. We all know how the story of the Titanic ends: how could I rewrite that age-old tale in a way that was new and interesting?
