The One-Link Lowdown on...Jane Toombs.
If you could retrieve one thing from your childhood, what would it be?
What’s on your bedside table/nightstand?
Meds for the next day, bottle of water, Kleenex, clock.
What’s your favourite piece of music?
Practically anything by Glen Miller (Yeah, I go waaay back)
They say vintage style is very fashionable at the moment, though! Jane, what's your favourite sandwich, and where in the world is the best place to eat it?
Peanut butter-banana sandwich on marble rye at my kitchen table while working a crossword puzzle.
Which household chore would you happily give up for ever?
Changing the cat’s sandbox.
Ewww...I'm with you on that one. Jane, what talent or skill would you love to have that you don’t have now?
I’d love to be able to sing in tune.
What drives you seriously nuts?
Mindless drivel instead of intelligent conversation.
Sadly, there's an awful lot of it around these days. Which animal do you think you’re most like, and why?
I’d like to be like a cat, except I‘m clumsy and cats aren’t. But I do tend to be picky abut friends and tend to be a loner. Although I like being petted by the right person.
What’s the best review you've ever had?
I’d say from my writing instructor, a published mystery writer who told me Tule Witch, the book I’d finished and he’d critiqued in class, was good enough so that he was willing to send it to his agent. (He did, it sold to Avon and that was my first published book in 1973.)
That would be pretty hard to top, I'd imagine! Jane, last question - if you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I’d like to be taller. Short people are often at a disadvantage.
Very true. I'd like to be a little taller, too. As they say, size matters! Readers, you can find out more about Jane's books at today's One-Link, her website. Thanks so much for being my guest today, Jane. Good luck with all your future projects!
