LM: I got the idea for the WAKE trilogy when dreaming that I was in my husband’s dream, watching what he was dreaming about.
LM: I think I probably have one somewhere. 🙂
TWT: Where did you get the inspiration for Dead to You?
LM: My agent forwarded me an article about a missing boy — he thought I’d find it interesting and inspiring. He was right!
LM: I love all my characters exactly the same! Not really. 🙂 I have a few favorites. Captain from the Wake Trilogy. Mr. Appleblossom from the Unwanteds series. Rowan from the upcoming VISIONS series (beginning in January with book 1, CRASH).
TWT: Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
LM: Yes. Don’t forget to read, listen, and watch. And then don’t forget to write. It takes a lot of practice to be good at it.
TWT: Is there a particular time of day that you prefer to write?
LM: I’m best when writing in the morning. By about 4pm, I start losing steam (unless I’m at a critical, exciting part, and then I’ll keep going until I get through it).
TWT: Should your novels be turned into movies, would you want to have a hand in the screenplay process?
LM: Sure! I’d like to try writing a screenplay sometime, but I’d be more interested in producing and having someone else write the screenplay.
TWT: Who is your greatest teacher?
LM: My kids.
