Another Interview

This one came from CraveBooks.com. I shall probably do some promotional work through them soon. Meanwhile, here are a few choice excerpts, as well as the url link to the full interview.


4. Which one of your books or characters is your favourite?

Elena, from the current series, is far and away my favorite. Although the first two and one-half volumes are actually Giovanni's story (or memoirs), she is the true heroine of the saga, and I am completely in love with her!

5. Which one of your books was the hardest to write and stretched you the most as a writer?

The entire series (i.e., THE PASSION OF ELENA BIANCHI) flowed quite effortlessly, yet it was the most difficult to write emotionally. I was often moved to tears as I added details to the lives of these characters. Of course, the series is a love story, and parts of it have moved some readers to outright laughter. Nevertheless, I think they will see that even in the first two books (i.e., IF MUSIC BE THE FOOD OF LOVE and PARADISE REGAINED AND LOST AGAIN), tragic elements are never far behind.

8. Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

Virtually every book has its own, unique inspiration. The works in THE PASSION OF ELENA BIANCHI probably "began" (at least subconsciously) when I discovered a beautiful song my father had written eleven years before I was born. My interest in reincarnation led me to the "soul fractions," which don't really manifest until later volumes. Some of the actual details are, of course, autobiographical. Finally, I have long been interested in the mystery of Beethoven and his "immortal beloved." Put these things together, add the Holocaust, the Mafia, and various psychic components, throw in a 2,000-year-old Curse, and books appear!
