About D’Ann Lindun:
Falling in love with romance novels the summer before sixth grade, D’Ann Lindun never thought about writing one until many years later when she took a how-to class at her local college. She was hooked! She began writing and never looked back. Romance appeals to her because there’s just something so satisfying about writing a book guaranteed to have a happy ending. D’Ann’s particular favorites usually feature cowboys and the women who love them. This is probably because she draws inspiration from the area where she lives, Western Colorado, her husband of twenty-nine years and their daughter. Composites of their small farm, herd of horses, five Australian shepherds, a Queensland heeler, two ducks and cats of every shape and color often show up in her stories!
What inspires you to write?
Everything! A couple at the restaurant! A cowboy! A movie!
Tell us about your writing process.
I don’t have a real process. Some days I write all day. I’m a night owl, and do a lot in the evening. It’s erratic.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Listen to them, they will tell me their story if I let them.
What advice would you give other writers?
Take chances! Not taking chances has cost me, and I regret that.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I’m published with small presses and also self-published. I like them both. I like the editorial process from presses, but the control of self publishing is hard to resist.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think there’s room for everyone, and that it’s wonderful!
