A Hole in One by Judy Penz Sheluk

Fast Five with Judy Penz Sheluk

Hi, Judy! Thank you so much for stopping by Brooke Blogs today. I am thrilled to have you here today to answer some interview questions. Congratulations on your newest release, A Hole in One!

1) What does a typical day look like for you? Do you write every day?

It varies, but when I’m working on a book, I aim for a chapter a day, five days a week. But those can be any five days, not just Monday to Friday. If I can write seven days a week, I’ll do that, too. It really depends on what else is going on in my life, but word counts, like 1,000 a day, or 50,000 in a …

Fast Five with Andi Anna Jones

1) As a travel agent, you must love travel. Where are your favorite places to go?

Really? You assume I love travel? I suppose that’s a popular misconception about agents. Actually, I get so sick of hearing customer complaints, personal travel is about the last thing I want to do! And, crowded airplanes (I’m a severe claustrophic!), airports, and lost luggage? Forget it!

Well, unless it involves a white sand beach in Cancun, a handsome sheriff, and a pitcher-full of margaritas. On second thought, travel can be pretty cool!

2) How did you find yourself as an amateur sleuth?

I’ve always been interested in “sleuthing”. I watched Matlock, Murder She Wrote, and Columboreruns while …

Black Arts, Tarts and Gypsy Carts by Erin Johnson

Character Interview with Imogen

1. What’s it like working in the royal bakery?
It’s amazing! Everyday is whirlwind, baking for the royal family’s meals, special events and parties. I have to wash the flour out of my hair every night and my legs ache from standing all day, but it’s my favorite place in the world. I get to make special treats that make people happy and everyday’s a new adventure.

2. What is your favorite part of having magic?
I think I’d enjoy having magic a lot more if I was any good at it! It seems like every spell I try is a disaster. But I must say, practicing with Hank is a big plus.

3. How are you liking life on …
