Welcome, Bettilu. What do you enjoy doing for relaxation?
I love to spend time with my children and grandchildren. I find them fascinating, whether I’m watching the children play or I’m talking with the adults about their interests. Other than that, I enjoy reading more than anything else. I tend to carry a book with me everywhere I go, even if I can only snatch a few minutes or so to read. I also paint landscapes, knit, crochet, and work in paper crafts. I tend to turn my relaxation projects into work, so have to vary my projects so what is meant to relax me doesn’t become another tension-filled job.

What do you enjoy most about writing?
I like creating the characters, imagining what they would do in a given situation, and developing their personalities as they face one obstacle after another. I also like finishing a book. There’s a lot of satisfaction in that.
Please tell us a little about your novel, Shepherd’s Song.
Cautious and conservative piano teacher Gail Winslow reads murder mysteries to liven up her life. When her
hero, concert pianist Brad Shepherd, shows up on her doorstep, she is still under the influence of her latest midnight reading and thinks he is a stalker. She not only breaks his arm, but—after much apology—enters into the musical adventure of a lifetime, helping him construct a series he has long dreamed of presenting on television.
Meanwhile, Brad struggles to defeat the nagging reminders of childhood taunts here in his hometown, as well as to quell the impossible idea of making Gail a part of his life permanently. She’s a quiet homebody; how can he thrust her into the glamorous but demanding life he lives? Not until they are both forced to put their lives on the line to find a lost child does a solution present itself.

Any parting comment?
I’ve taught piano lessons for nearly fifty years. My numerous experiences with students triggered my imagination, but studying with three concert pianists and hearing their experiences set my imagination on fire. My own love of music and my struggles with performance anxiety added to the mix. While the story is fiction, it is based on a multitude of life experiences.
