Author of the hilarious Anastasia Pollock Crafting Mysteries, (two of my favorites are: Assault with a Deadly Glue Gun and Decoupage Can Be Deadly),
she also writes wonderfully light romances, romantic suspense, and contributed to a guide to the TV series, House. Her books have won a slew of awards. If you’ve ever done a needlework pattern out of a magazine or craft book, you’ve probably done one of her patterns, too.
Besides all that, she’s an author’s agent who shoots straight from the hip. It sounds lethal, but finding someone who’ll tell you exactly what the state of the market, or your manuscript, is can be rarer than finding an honest politician.

To be frank, there is little that Lois Winston can’t do.
She sat down with me to do a video interview — and it was really great. We laughed — well, she was hysterical, and I did the laughing. I played it for several friends right off of my camera and they all said it was one of my best.
But as I went to upload it recently — and it was much, much overdue, but with the death of my father I’ve been awfully behind in things — that polar vortex that has been freezing all of us sent ice skittering across my electric lines. The power went out, the video got corrupted, and I am here, asking Lois to forgive me.
While I beg for a second chance to interview her — and hopes she understands –here is a link to her latest book — one that I know you’ll love as much as I already do.
So, do you think I should be forgiven? Or if not, what is a fitting punishment? Nice comments below extolling my virtues and supporting my request for a reprieve will earn you all kudos — and one lucky person leaving a comment will also receive a copy of Lois’ book on me. 😉
