My Reading List from 2010

Emmanuel Sigauke, writer and owner of the blog Wealth of Ideas interviewed me over the holidays. He asked me to make a list of the books I read during 2010. It was a huge task to try and remember and I'm not sure my list is correct, almost positive it is not, but I tried my best.

At the end he interviews me. Here was one of the questions:

You have written more than thirteen books? Are you a satisfied writer?

Is anyone ever a satisfied writer? No, I am not. I’m learning as I go along. My only hope is that I’m getting better, and even this I’m not always sure about. I have a story I wrote very early on that I try not to read. It’s a short story, a flash, and I think it may be one of the best things I’ve ever written. I don’t read it because it makes me wonder if what I believe, that I’m learning and getting better, is really true. Anyway, I suppose that’s the typical insecurities of a writer.

Satisfied writer- do those words EVER go together??

Very impressive. How many years has it taken you to write 13 books?

I started writing seriously when I turned 40, I'll be 47 in two weeks. All four of my detective novellas though I wrote before that, two of them have been published, I just signed a contract for the third one to be published,the fourth one has yet to find a home.

I hear that even bestselling authors are insecure. So you're on the right track. Wishing you a happy and successful 2011.
