Title of Novel: INCURABLE

IncurableQ1 How long have you been writing? And what was the first thing you can remember writing?

Besides novel writing, I do freelance work writing scripts and treatments. I have been writing since childhood. I made a greeting card for my dad’s birthday when I was seven years old,  and my words made him cry. I was instantly hooked on the power of writing.

Q2 Did you always want to be a writer?

Yes. I only took typing so I could type fast to write my books.

Q3 How did you feel when you were writing this book?

I became obsessed with the characters and the history. I immersed myself in the process. I would wake up out of a sound sleep, inspired. I remember  being in an off again/on again fever.

Q4 How long did it take to write?

Overall, INCURABLE took four years from the spark of an idea to the finished book. I saw a documentary on The History Channel about military-condoned prostitution on Hotel Street in Honolulu before and during WWII, and I began to read everything I could get my hands on about the women in the brothels.

Q5 Do you have a special place where you go to write?

I mostly write in my office. No music. No noise. Just me and my laptop. I will make notes in a notebook when I am out and about though. And I do enjoy writing in coffee houses.

Q6 When you begin writing, did you ever think you’d get to where you are now?

Yes! I saw myself making money with my craft and now I do. As far as the novel goes, INCURABLE comes out August 7th, and I can’t wait!

When Elizabeth’s not writing feverishly, you will find her out walking or sightseeing. She’s crazy about coffee, books, good wine, cairn terriers, miniature ponies, historical houses, tapas, and witty people.

Thanks Elizabeth! It’s great to hear about your work and what the future holds for you.  I wish you the best of luck with your writing.
