Thank you for being here today with us, Tosca. I’m a HUGE fan, and I know you have A LOT of readers here today that feel the same. We’ve read all your works, and now we’re curious…do you have any current projects you’re working on? Care to share?
I’ve just finished a contemporary thriller. (Yay!) It’s a small break from the biblical historical genre, and I really needed this. It was a super fun ride filled with action and suspense and romance, too. I hope you enjoy it!
I can’t wait to get my hands on it!! And congratulations on finishing this novel. I know how difficult it can be to etch/carve/pray out time to write in order to meet those deadlines. Is there a favorite time of the day you prefer to write to get the job done?
You know, I tend to do anything serious in the evening. Usually after 9pm. These days I work until dawn, and now that it’s spring, the birds are out to sing me to sleep (or keep me awake…)
Ha! I have a love-hate relationship with the birds outside my window too! Now, is there a specific place where you like to write? I have to kind of lock myself away.
My office is the place I write—there is only one seat in that space, and it’s behind my claw-foot desk. For some reason, I always seem to work at night.
All writers reading this, take note: a claw-foot desk, and night writing. I’m on it!
Moving on! I’m gonna get a little nosey here. but I wanna know if there are there things you put off doing because you dread them? (ie I can’t stand to fold socks. Torture!)
I am a master procrastinator. I put off writing until I either can’t stand it any more or I better get a move on if I want to make my deadline. It’s a form of perfectionism that stems from fear. And in the end, the fear never goes away—I just start slogging through to the end.
I appreciate your transparency and your bravery to face fear by “slogging through to the end.” Fear is something that we can all struggle with, and it’s encouraging to know we don’t have to succumb.
Switching gears a bit now. I’m a Military wife, and love to have my guests put themselves in the military life roll. Let’s play!
Many Military families move several times over the course of their career relocating to duty stations all over the country and the world. While moving can be difficult, it’s also pretty exciting to meet new people and see new places. Sometimes we’re able to choose our duty station. If you had a choice, where would you like to be stationed and why?
Korea. 🙂 I have a ton of family (half of it) in Seoul. And I need me some good Korean food.
My hubby spent a year in South Korea!! I got to spend close to a month over there and LOVED it! Seoul was amazing! And you’re right, the food is crazy tasty!
I also like to honor the Service men and women in my guest’s family. Do you have family that have or are serving in the Military?
Some of my extended American family have served in the Air Force—uncles, a cousin. All the men on my Korean side of the family have served in the Korean military (it’s compulsory). My uncle is a former Korean Secretary of Defense, but the coolest part of his career, for me, was when he was a two star general because I got to ride around with him in his Jeep. ;D
That is totally awesome! Please thank both sides of your family for their service!
I’m not only a Military wife, but like a large portion of my friends and readers, I’m a stay at home momma. It gets a bit crazy around my house, especially when I have edits to get to! Could you share some advice for all those parents out there raising their babies juggling insane schedules?
Oh boy. I’m a brand new step-mother to be of four—one young lady (19) and three young men (14 and 11 year old twins). (My fiancé is a single father.) So I’m the one who needs the advice—namely, ways to make vegetables appealing. Right now I’m just trying not to get wiped out by kid germs. (I managed to catch Whooping Cough last January.) One of the most amazing privileges of coming into this role is listening to them talk about the things that are important to them (i.e. football and Minecraft).
First off, Tosca, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Welcome to the wild, wonderful world of parenthood! Readers, let’s shower Tosca with some advice in the comment section! My advice: pray. Pray for your kids to like veggies. Pray you don’t get sick. And pray with them…even about Minecraft, football, or in my case, Elsa, Anna, and Pokémon.
Tosca, I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to be our guest today. We’ve had a great time, and have room for one more response.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers? I know they’d love a personal note.
I love you guys. I truly have the most wonderful readers in the world. I think of you as I sit down to work, as I go about the business side of writing, and am grateful every day. One of my greatest joys is when I get to meet readers at signings, talks or events and hug them.
