Sally, what made you become a writer?
Ever since I was a child I’ve loved reading and writing, and I started my first novel thirty years ago. Needless to say, this first manuscript remains unfinished, and long abandoned, but the urge to write has always been a driving force for me. In 2000 I did National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo), a challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days for the first time, and managed to complete an entire novel in 30 days. I’ve done NaNoWriMo a total of ten or eleven times altogether, and it taught me that I could start and finish a book – which was the first lesson that I needed to learn in my path to …

ANNOUNCEMENT:  The winner of Nicole's giveaway is jcbweiss.  Congratulations.


What inspired you to become a writer?
Getting involved with a group of girls on a romance community board and trying our hand at writing our own story. I decided I could do this and then started writing from there.

What's your preferred genre?
Definitely contemporary. I like modern settings. I fear if I did a lot of research for a book I'd get bored with it and then would never write the darn thing!

Maria McKenzie Returns with MASQUERADE - PART II of the UNCHAINED TRILOGY

I'm happy to welcome author Maria McKenzie back to MBB today, with MASQUERADE,  Part II of her historical fiction trilogy, THE UNCHAINED TRILOGY.  This is a romantic family saga spanning several generations and it deals with the interesting and potentially controversial matter of inter-racial romance.  As someone who read Part I of the trilogy and was fascinated by the love story of Lori, a former slave and Daniel, the free man she fell in love with, I was eagerly waiting for this book release. So I had questions aplenty for Maria.

Maria, thanks so much for inviting me to your blog today! And in answer to your question, it wasn’t really difficu…

What made you decide to become a writer? I’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember, but by the time I went to university, I’d decided that writing fiction was an unrealistic dream and so I went into magazine journalism instead. It was still in my heart, though, and I kept saying that I’d write fiction ‘one day’. After I’d had my second child something clicked and I realised that ‘one day’ was never going to come if I didn…
