I love them all!

The last book in Trolloppe’s Palliser saga.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I’ll give you a hint: Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

My cat is currently on my lap. Bustopher is a good muse.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

Everyone is dealing with something. We’re here to help one another.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Sometimes, it’s the worst parts of life that make us strongest.
