You have the most amazing home office—what’s the story behind it?

Hahhaa! My entire house is feng shui, and my office is the same. I have a clear vision, and my amazing husband brought it to life. I’m one lucky gal.

Mac or PC?

PC

Well, that’s unfortunate. Though, to be fair, I bought my first Mac the week Vista came out and I haven’t worked on a PC since, so maybe my memories of how horrible and soul-crushingly miserable working around my old PC’s crashing fits are exaggerated just a bit.

Tonya, tell us a little bit about yourself and your writing. How does your personality influence your writing?

Hmmm….when I meet readers, they tell me they can see my positive and funny personalities in my characters. Life is so crazy and I try to give that escape. I’m a positive person and I want my readers to feel that positive energy when reading my novels. I want them to walk away feeling good.

When did you start writing and what was the learning process like for you?

Gosh, I didn’t start until five years ago. I’ve always been good at telling stories, but boy is that different than writing them down.

I took a lot of on-line classes, joined writer’s groups, critique group, and attended a lot of workshops. Writing isn’t an easy job, but it’s one that I continually learn something. The learning process never ends.
