I have a diverse business and personal background. I owned a national antique and art appraisal business for many years, leaving that field and opening two yoga centers where I taught yoga and certified yoga instructors. I have travelled extensively throughout the world, most recently dividing my time between Huntington Beach and Sacramento, California where my husband is a Senator. I'm a gourmet cook and have entertained Governors, Congressmen and other political figures in my homes. I'm an avid read and have brought the richness of my life experiences to my novel, Blue Coyote Motel.
The genesis of Blue Coyote Motel happened when my husband and I were guests at a wedding in Palm Springs, California last year at a boutique hotel. Our son was best man and the wedding party had taken over the newly renovated old Palm Springs Motel. It was October and the temperature was 106. The needed air-conditioning was silent and I mentally compared it to the heater in our home in Huntington Beach that sounds like a truck is rumbling throughout the house when it's on. I remember turning to my husband and saying, "Wouldn't it be something if a 'feel good' drug could be piped into the air-conditioning and everybody was happy?" He turned to me and said, "There's your book." It went from there.
Ayn Rand is one of my favourite authors along with Jennifer Weiner and others too numerous to mention.
My latest novel is a political tell-all/love-affair. The head of the Republican Senate once told me that no one in Sacramento knows more than I do as to where the bodies are buried and what really goes on. I have spent most of the last twelve years in the political arena there so I decided to write about it. It will be released in early 2013. It took me a couple of months to write. It's the rewrites that take the time!
I have to agree with you about the re-writes Dianne.
I write almost every day. When I'm travelling, I use my iPad and then transfer what I've written to my main computer. I'm very fortunate to have the time to it. With my first draft, I spend a lot of time researching. After that's done, it's honing, fine-tuning and tightening the book. I love to learn and writing allows me to really delve into various subjects.
I hope that everyone who picks up one of my books will simply say, "That was a great read. I didn't want it to end.
The following is a paragraph from Tea Party Teddy:
They come to Sacramento with a grand plan of the things they want to accomplish, intent on carrying out the will of the people who elected them. When their time in Sacramento is up because of term limits, they leave, having accomplished nothing, worn down by the reality of the political world and sporting a big imaginary "W" on their foreheads standing for "whore.” After just a few weeks into each new legislative session, there are no virgins left in the world of Sacramento politics.
Thanks for the chance to be interviewed by you.
Thank you Dianne, it has been my pleasure and this has been a very interesting insight into your work.
