Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I grew up in an Air Force family living all over the US and around the world, which provided terrific ideas for future books, and the chance to meet real-life heroes/heroines in uniforms and flight-suits.
I currently write three different series.
The Dolphin Shore Shifters starts with Blood Tide and introduces my paranormal romance series. The Santa Barbara pod, dolphins capable of shifting into human form, work through their corporation, Save Blue Water, to protect the oceans at any cost.
The Paladin Group, romantic suspense stories featuring wounded veterans.
Colonel’s Daughters quintet, contemporary romance stories, is about five sisters, air force brats born in different countries. As each sister travels to her birth place, she meets the man of her dreams and must confront her destiny.
With a total of 8 books published, number 9 is due to release in November 2017.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book, Survival Reboot, is book 2 of Paladin Group. Book 1, Deadly Reboot launched the series. Set in a small southern town, wounded air force veterans, men and women warriors turned civilian lawyers and investigators, are determined to continue their rescue work with an assist from the older generation of veterans.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I doubt any of my writing habits are unusual. I do most all my research ahead of time, make detailed outlines before i begin to write.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
For police procedurals, I love JD Robb.
For paranormal stories, I love Tanya Huff and Alyssa Day and many more-too many to name. I especially love books about vampires and most every variety of shifter: werewolves, dragons, bears, and more.
What are you working on now?
Currently, I am outlining Maximum Reboot, Paladin Group book 3.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My newsletter is just getting started, so mostly I interact with my readers on my Facebook page and on Twitter.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Keep writing. It can be distracting when you get into promo mode and it keeps you from working on the next book.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
Just finished reading Secrets in Death by JD Robb.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I want to get back on my schedule of writing and publishing four or five books per year. Then I have created a “Paranormal world” for a fantasy series I’d like to start writing.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Naked in Death by JD Robb,
Persuasion by Jane Austen,
Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare
