Life is good for Sgt. Wind¬flower in Grand Bank, Newfoundland. But something’s missing from the Mountie’s life. Actually, a lot of things go missing, including a little girl and supplies from the new factory. It’s Windflower’s job to unravel the tangled web of murder, deceit and an accidental kidnapping that threatens to engulf this sleepy little town and destroy those closest to him. But there’s always good food, good friends and the love of a great woman to make everything better in the end.



Interview:

  1. What inspired you to write a Tangled Web?
A Tangled Web is the 6th book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series. And for me, every book kind of starts the same way, with some connection to a picture or scene. In the case of A Tangled Web, I actually did see a truck parked near the brook in Grand Bank one day and thought that some small child could climb inside, without anyone noticing. Months later, when I sat down to start the new book, that image was still there. So that’s how the book opens, and things proceed from there. (The little girl is okay BTW)

2.) Do you have a special place where you like to write?
I can, and do, write just about anywhere. But I prefer to have a peaceful and quiet place to write. I write best early in the morning, before the world creeps in and takes over. I think it’s important to get ready to write, to clear the space in your mind and heart for the creative flow to begin.

3.) What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like to walk, particularly in nature, in the woods, or by the water. I love the ocean the best, by any kind of water is good. It seems to soothe the savage beast inside my head and brings me calmness and serenity. And I read and love to watch hockey on TV. I’m Canadian, eh?

4.) Who is your favorite author/and what book do you love from that author?
My favourite author is JRR Tolkien and I love LOTR, but my fave is The Hobbit. I love the Little People and their joy of living and trying to be good people in the world. We need more Hobbits and less of the others, you know who I mean.

5.) What are you reading right now?
Like the rest of the world, I am reading Louise Penny’s Glass Houses. She never disappoints.

6.) Any inspiration to a new coming author?
I had no idea of where to even begin writing a novel, so I did what was suggested to me, which I offer as advice to all aspiring writers: Read about how other writers did it. One book that really helped was Stephen King’s “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft” and in this book and others I learned that the way to write a novel was to start and then to keep at it until it was finished. It didn’t matter about the weather, or money, or the economy, or relationships, or even family or sickness or anything. If you want to write a book, you just get up every day and you do it.

7.) Do you have anything new coming up and if you do can you tell us about it?
I am going to write a new Windflower mystery, starting soon. But I’m also trying to develop a mystery series called Curveball, which focuses on minor league baseball.
