Interview: The Daily Grommet

I was interviewed for The Daily Grommet—her book giveaway is over, but head over there to read a pretty in-depth conversation on writing, being a creative mother, and plans for book two:

What was the hardest part of the writing process for the book?

When you’re a creative, work-at-home parent, everyone wants a piece of you. Your kids want you to play lego. Your supper is sticking to the bottom of the pot. Your corporate client wants a feature article on the effect of social media on mass brands in a fragmented market. Your husband wants you to curl up on the couch for an evening and watch a movie and have you be mentally as well as physically present.

In the midst of all that, a small girl—a pirate scout—climbs through a window and whispers in your ear 'I may be small, but I’m the fastest they’ve ever seen...' And you’re entranced, and you fear she’s going to disappear back out through that window if you don’t drop everything and write about her. Then a small voice chirps from the other room HA! HA HA. LOOK. FUNNY POOP.
