Have you considered writing outside the mystery genre?
Never say never, but at this point, I’m happy writing mysteries. Once in while, I feel there might be a romance novel waiting to be written, but I’m sure it would end up a romantic suspense with a smoking gun and a few bodies sprinkled around for effect.
Anything else you'd like to say to our readers?
Completing my first novel gave me a true sense of accomplishment. There’s nothing like getting a spark of an idea – no more than a three-second scene that flashed through my mind and then watched it grow into a complex storyline. I find that amazing, but the best part is the readers’ reactions to my work. I appreciate the glowing critical reviews, but the true reward for the months/years of work is when someone takes the time to buy one of my books, read it, and is moved enough to send me an e-mail or post a comment. Their reactions are priceless and I don’t think I’ll ever really get over the awe of it.
Mayra, thank you so much for taking the time to interview me and for giving me the chance to share a bit about my work with your readers.
You're welcome, Marta! Thanks for the interview!
