A&RBC: How did you become a writer?
Wanda: I began writing on a dare I made with myself. On December 13, 2005, I picked up a yellow writing pad and challenged myself to write the story that had been playing out in my head for years. The finished product was my first novel, First Sunday in October.
A&RBC: Where does your inspiration for your characters come from?
Wanda: My characters are inspired by my experiences and people I see and meet every day. The commuter train is a great place to write and observe people.
A&RBC: What are you hoping readers take from your book?
Wanda: I want readers to understand that marriage is more than just a passing thought or the “in” thing to do. Secrets cause wounds and can destroy individuals. Open and honest communication is the key to any relationship.
A&RBC: If you were to write a book about a controversial topic, what would it be?
Wanda: I’ve pretty much covered most controversial topics from pornography to homosexuality.
A&RBC: Most writers have a process or method for writing their books, what is yours?
Wanda: For the most part, the process is all in my head. Once I formulate the plot I begin writing and allow the characters to dictate the journey.
A&RBC: What is your favorite genre of books?
Wanda: I love Romance and Christian Fiction.
A&RBC: Are you an avid or occasional reader?
Wanda: I love to read. Books are my one true addiction. When I’m not working on a manuscript, I read every day.
A&RBC: What are two things you want your readers to know about you?
Wanda: I am a shy and simple girl.
A&RBC: If you could interview one of your favorite authors, who would it be? Why?
Wanda: I would be honored to interview Gwynne Forster. I love her writing style and strong characterization. Her persona depicts class.
A&RBC: What new projects are you working on?
Wanda: Currently, I am working on two projects. Liberation, the prequel to Unresolved Issues is in the early publication stage. In May 2013, the sequel to Silver Lining, Doin’ Me is scheduled for release.
