Tuesday Spotlight: Cheryl Brooks

What got you interested in writing? I started writing because I wanted to read something different than what I was finding on the shelves. I loved science fiction and romance, so I combined the two.

How long have you been writing? Off and on since the late 70's.

What advice would you give a new writer just starting out? Don't kid yourself that your first book is publishable, but don't let it stop you from writing more of them. I did that early on, and I'd probably be much further with my writing career if I hadn't let those early rejections stop me.

When did you first consider yourself a writer? Ha! I still don't, even though Rogue is my third published work. Not sure when I'll be convinced. Maybe by the sixth...

Do you really, really want a dog? My dog died this past September. He was so perfect, I don't think I'll be getting another one like him anytime soon.

Do you hate how you look in pictures? YES!!!

Just keep doing what you're doing. You put magic in those books. You cast a spell over your readers. I'm cursed. And I'm loving it.
You look like a sweet lady in your pictures.
But we know that's not true.
You're really a Sexy Viken.

Thanks, Donna!
I'll keep going until I run out of ideas, at which time I'm sure you could help me out!
