Jen: At what age did you discover writing? When where you first published? Tell us your call story.
Lucianne: As a teen I wrote some short screenplays for young people’s television in Ireland. At twenty-two I made my first attempt at a romantic suspense and was published at age twenty-nine.
Lucianne: No. Just me.
Lucianne: I used to wing it. Now I plot, plot, plot.
Lucianne: A law enforcement hero or heroine.
Lucianne: I will probably stay away from steampunk…mostly because I still don’t know what it is!
Lucianne: Margo, the second Caldwell sister, sure did. She’s a police officer who just made detective. She kicks ass. I want to be her.
Lucianne: Charlotte Bronte…Did you base the characters of Caroline and Shirley on real-life people? Jane Austen…Are you a virgin? Susan Wiggs…Do you believe in past lives? Suzanne Brockmann…Ever wish you’d gone into the military instead of writing? Tami Hoag…What made you stop writing romances and switching to straight suspense?
Lucianne: Went out to dinner with a friend and bought champagne.
Lucianne: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, running and cross-training
Lucianne: I’m departing from writing to follow in Margo’s footsteps and will be joining the local police force come January! No joke.
