Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Lynda J Cox
Once upon a time there was a little girl who said when she grew up, she was going to have dogs like Lassie, own horses, and live on a ranch just like the Ponderosa. Two out of three isn’t bad. If she can’t live on a ranch, Lynda J Cox writes about characters who do. She writes steamy westerns, what one reviewer called an authentic blend of Old West action and happily ever after romance.
When and Why did you start to write?
I’ve been writing all my life, but I didn’t get serious about publication until I was challenged by the hubby. I had just thrown the latest paperback across the room with the muttered comment, “I can write as well as this.” He said, “So write.”
What authors do you always read or suggest to others?
Susan Fisher Davis, Suzan Tisdale, Victoria Vane
What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?
The most surprising thing is how much work it actually is.
What are you working on now?
Working on a fifth book for my publisher. The book is another historical western.
When writing are you a pantser or plotter?
Panster, all the way. The one time I tried to plot out a book, I put so much into plotting it, I lost all the joy of writing and never wrote that book. I like being surprised.
