Friday, Joan Havelange is Visiting and Talking About Writing

1. What were you before you became a writer? Did this influence your career as an author.
I have worn a few hats, I worked for a mining company in Northern Manitoba. This was when computers were just ramping up. It was great fun being on the ground floor so to speak. I have also acted and been a little theatre director. I find writing a lot like directing, only your actors show up on time and know their lines, although sometimes they still go off in a direction that surprises me.

2. Are you genre specific or general? I don't mean major genres but do you write in a subgenre of romance, mystery or paranormal?
I’m a mystery buff, I tried writing romances, but I wasn’t romantic enough. So it’s murder for me. The Cozy Mystery kind.

3. What is your latest release?
Wayward Shot

4. What are you working on now?
My next mystery is set in Egypt, a country I enjoyed visiting a few years ago

5. Does your reading influence your choice of a genre?

I read many genres, but I’m a big fan of mysteries 

6. Where can we find you?

Ooh, a new-to-me author. And a Cozy Mystery author at that! Will keep my eye on future books.
