Author Interview – Harriet Hodgson @healthmn1

If you were accidentally locked into a store, what store would it be and what department?

Since I love to cook, I would like to be locked into a major department store, such as Macy’s, and be in the cookware department. That department would include kitchen tools, mixing bowls, tableware, linens, and cookbooks. I read cookbooks like some people read novels. The cookware department would have a hot pot of coffee on the counter, with a large mug just for me.

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been a freelancer for 36+ years, am the author of hundreds of print and Internet articles, and 33 published books, some of them short and some of them long.

When you’re not writing how to you relax?

I relax with cooking, decorating, and reading. There’s nothing like a good mystery to get me relaxed and eager for the next page.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep at it. How do you keep going?

I’m a disciplined writer and write every day. Not writing would feel strange to me, so I don’t have to force myself to sit down at the computer. Other writers and would-be writers ask me about “writer’s block.” To be honest, I don’t have time for “writer’s block,” I have to keep practicing my craft and producing good work.

What is your favorite meal?

Because I love to cook I have many favorite meals. One of my favorites, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, represents my British heritage. Yorkshire pudding is a popover recipe cooked in a pie pan or other large pan. Sometimes I make Yorkshire pudding with half white and half wheat flour. I also use a combination of whole eggs and egg substitute to reduce the calories.
