    Mini Interview with Coco Ihle, Author of SHE HAD TO KNOW

    Second Wind: Do you prefer to write at a particular time of day?

    Coco Ihle: Mornings are my favorite time, because my mind is fresh, but sometimes late at night when there are no distractions. Often, I’ll wake in the middle of the night with an idea or a phrase and have to write it down on a tablet I keep on my nightstand. And occasionally, I just have to get up and write that thought or idea in more detail.

    Mini Interview with Sherrie Hansen, author of WILD ROSE

    Second Wind: What inspired you to write WILD ROSE?

    Sherrie Hansen: Several personal events merged and made into make-believe situations provided the inspiration for Wild Rose. Wild Rose is about being humbled, experiencing forgiveness and redemption even when you feel totally unworthy, and about forgiving yourself, which is sometimes the most difficult thing of all.

    Mini Interview with Norm Brown, Author of CARPET RIDE

    Second Wind: Did you do any research for the book? If so, how did you do it?

    Norm Brown: The action of the story takes place at locations I was already somewhat familiar with in Oregon, Texas, and Colorado. I think that reduced the amount of background research required. I do remember however nervously wandering around a local hospital intensive care unit to get a feel for the layout of a scene. I always feel like an intruder in hospital hallways, and in this case I probably was.

    Mini Interview with Paul Mohrbacher, author of THE MAGIC FAULT

    Second Wind: What is the most difficult part of the whole writing process?

    Paul Mohrbacher: The most difficult part of the writing process is cutting out extraneous plot detours. That usually means characters you like but who shouldn’t be in this book; scenes that seem essential but aren’t, dialogue that explains more than it should. The “aha moment” comes at the right time, about halfway through the first draft — where am I going with this story?
