Welcome to Alice Duncan

Alice, thank you for visiting my blog today and sharing your thoughts on Inspiration, Author Enjoyment, & Reader Wishes…
Award-winning author Alice Duncan lives with a herd of wild dachshunds (enriched from time to time with fosterees from New Mexico Dachshund Rescue) in Roswell, New Mexico. She’s not a UFO enthusiast; she’s in Roswell because her mother’s family settled there fifty years before the aliens crashed. Alice no longer longs to return to California, although she still misses the food, not to mention her children, one of whom is there and the other of whom is in Nevada.
Inspiration? Beats the heck out of me. I’ve just always wanted to write books. Historical books. Books that take me out of the present day and send me back to a time that looks better from here, but probably wasn’t for those who lived then.
What do you most like about being an author? When people tell me they enjoy my books!
When I was young and didn’t know any better, I wanted to write the Great American Novel. After life kicked me around for a few decades, I decided I not only don’t want to write the Great American Novel, I don’t even want to read it. What I like in my reading material is to be taken away from life’s travails for a few hours. That’s what I aim to do in my own novels, and I consider it a most worthwhile goal. When people finish a book of mine, I want them to be happy they read it.
What great thoughts, Alice. Thanks for visiting my blog today!
