TWL: Welcome to The Writer's Life, Lindy! Can you tell us when your passion for writing began?

Lindy: As far back as I can remember, I loved to tell stories. I just liked to make stuff up, so I wrote them down. I guess you could say that I was writing back then, lol. I loved my creative writing class back in school. It was an escape for me.

TWL: Can you tell us what your typical 'writing' day is like?

Lindy: Lol, well, being a mom and a writer is a challenge. I have a new baby and a spirited four year old, but I consider my books my "babies"too. I manage to write a little bit every day, and I have mastered the art of writing when it is not totally quiet. I just relax, get into the "Zone", and let what comes out of me come to life.

TWL: Do you write full time?

Lindy: I am a full time mom, and I do write as much as I can. I do aspire to become a full time writer.

TWL: Can you tell us a little bit about your book?

Lindy: WEEKENDS is a romance-suspense about an innocent-sounding family reunion at an exclusive California beach resort turns into a weekend of murder, deceit, exposed secrets and unexpected intimate encounters.

John Peterson has it all: He is a respected, successful Beverly Hills entertainment lawyer with a loving wife and grown son, the strikingly handsome young film director Joe Peterson. John also has a secret, and he decides to gather his disparate family members at the elegant Hotel Del Moor in picturesque Linda Bella, California for some luxurious fun, togetherness and re-connecting before revealing his secret. Unbeknownst to the family, a brutal serial killer is lurking in the midst of all the wondrous festivities.

TWL: Who published your book and how has your experience with them been?

Lindy: My books is published with LBF Books, and I am very happy with them. Lachesis Publishing has become part of the LBF team, and I am looking forward to working with them as well. I have only positive words about LBF and Lachesis, both publishers are very professional and friendly people to work with.

TWL: Can you tell us the inspiration behind your book?

Lindy: I wanted to write a sexy story that takes place at a California beach resort. I am a California girl, and I wanted to share that experience with readers. I think that the California Coast is the most romantic place in the world, and I was inspired by that. It lends itself to a sexy, romantic story.

TWL: Can you tell us ways you are promoting your book? Have they been successful?

Lindy: Lol, well I am still working on that. I had no idea the time and energy needed for an author to promote their book. I do have to keep a positive attitude about the whole thing.

TWL: Do you have a mentor?

Lindy: No, not really. I do get inspiration and advice from other authors, but as far as a mentor goes, no.

TWL: What future projects do you have in the works?

Lindy: CRASHERS and CITY OF TOYS. Crashers is my mystery crime novel, and City of Toys was inspired by my old actress days. Both will be released by Lachesis Publishing.

TWL: Can you give aspiring authors words of advice towards getting published?

Lindy: Stay positive! Dreams do come true, without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them. John Updike said that, and I thought it was a nice thing to say.

TWL: What's one thing about your life that you think is important, but nobody asks?

Lindy: How I keep sane, lol. No, just kidding. I just try to balance being a mom and being a writer. It is all fun to me.
