AN INTERIEW WITH MARGARET DALEY


Roxanne Rustand, here---delighted to introduce you to prolific, award-winning author Margaret Daley, who has graciously consented to be featured here on the SuspenseSisters blog.


If you had to describe yourself in one sentence, what would you say?  
Dedicated to God, family and country.

What do you do when you’re not writing? Any interesting hobbies?
I love to spend time with family and friends and read in my free time.
What is your writing schedule, and how do you manage to be productive despite everything else in your life?
I don’t always manage to be productive when a lot of different things are going on. I try to write six days a week. I’m trying to take one day off each week, which isn’t always easy. By working at least a little each day, I stay in my story world, and it doesn’t take much time to get back into the book I’m writing.

What was your favorite book as a teen or child?
All the Nancy Drew stories.

What genre did you start out writing? Have you changed course? Why or why not?
Historical romance. Yes, I’ve changed quite a bit over the thirty-seven years I’ve been writing. The first book I sold was a contemporary romance. Soon that was all I was writing, although I have published 3 historical romances over the course of my career. Now I’m mostly writing Christian romantic suspense. That is what I enjoy reading the most—and writing.

Any other genres you’d like to try? If yes, what and why?
No.

If you could go back in time and do something differently at the start of your career, what would it be?
Being part of a continuity series with my first publisher—I’ve done many since then and I’ve really enjoyed doing them.

Beyond just telling them to keep at their writing, what is the most important piece of advice you’d like to give to unpublished authors?

Read what you want to write.
