1. Can you tell our readers a little about you and your books?
a. I love a good love story. Several of my stories involve instant, strong attractions with soul mates. I love a happy ending even if there is a bumpy road leading up to it, and I love a good supportive relationship where despite those bumps, the couple gets through it together.
2. Which of your works is currently your favorite?
a. That’s like choosing a favorite flavor of ice cream! You can’t just pick one…I am pretty excited about one of the prequel story lines I’m working on though.
3. Do you like to create books for adults?
a. Yes, I like to create things that I as a reader would enjoy to read. I hope that my stories reach a wide audience.
4. What does your family think of your writing?
a. My family is very supportive, especially my husband. When my old laptop died, he made sure the new one we got, would be perfect for my writing and then set up a desk next to his in the office where I could sit and write while he worked on his computer, so we could always spend time together even doing different tasks.
5. Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
a. I’ve heard from some, yes. The biggest question I get is character feature requests. So far I have eight stories outlined for this series, but I’ll need to add more if I keep getting these requests lol.
6. As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
a. I wanted to be a vet and work with animals. But then I realized I’d have to deal with the sad side too and I couldn’t handle that kind of heartbreak. (I need my HEAs)
7. Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?
a. Read. Most people think its all about the writing, and yes of course it is, but at the same time, you need to read too. Not just to have an idea of what kind of books are out there or what a catchy cover may look like but also to help develop you skill. As you read, you’ll pick up on tricks and you’ll see things you like about different writing styles as well as things you don’t. When I see things that bug me while reading, it serves as a reminder to NOT do that in my own writing.
8. If you could market your brand – not just one particular book, but your overall brand of writing – in one sentence, what would it be?
a. Love is the universal cure for anything and with the love of your soulmate, anything is possible.
9. New authors face the obvious challenge of marketing their books. What advice do you have for an author just starting out?
a. Make author friends. They are a great source of knowledge and teamwork.
