Frequently Asked Questions



Will you ever do another body change story?

Probably not.  I enjoyed writing them immensely  (ON THE WAY TO HEAVEN, SHADES OF HEAVEN, and SECOND TIME AROUND), but I feel I’ve written them the three ways they could be written.  I’ve taken the plain-jain girl and given her a model’s body, a husband who can’t stand her, and a rich lifestyle.  I gave the model her comeuppance by putting her into a pregnant, small town waitress married to a stock car driver.  And I gave a girl who’d been in a wheelchair a good part of her life a second chance to woo the man she’s been in love with for years.  Another writer and friend, who was inspired by my first book, killed off a guy and brought him back in a woman’s body. (Gracie McKeever, NEW LIFE INCOGNITA)  I didn’t have the guts to do that!   I have explored the avenues I wanted to explore and now I’m writing different kinds of books.  But I never say never.
