What is your working title of your book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I love to watch shows on HDTV about Stagers, and the ways they can quickly change a room.
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I haven't the faintest.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Some are born with a silver spoon, others with a heart of gold.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Neither, though not yet completed, I've already sold it to my publisher, Desert Breeze.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I'm still working on that, and I have to turn it in to the publisher for edits on April 1, but I typed THE END to the first draft on New Year's Eve. YEAH!
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
The shows about staging empty New York City apartments on HGTV. I knew wealthy homeowners were hiring stagers to help their homes sell quickly because of the down economy, and decided to write about an experienced by trained stager, the product of foster care, and her wealthy client, a man whose Rancho Santa Fe home means nothing to him.
What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
The heroine takes time out of her busy schedule to listen to friends and even gives some a helping hand.
