Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I like to garden, love metaphysical studies, and collect crystals, minerals, and gemstones. I enjoy researching 16th-19th Century art and furniture, at the Antique shop where I work.
I currently live in Mississippi, though Arizona is my true home. I have two amazing sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and two wonderful grandchildren. A cat and a Collie own me.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is Liam’s Spell, Book 2 of the Decker Brothers Trilogy. I am a Tarot reader and medium. When I lived in Arizona I read at several Metaphysical shops, private parties and psychic fairs. I also went through many years of psychic development classes and later taught them and Tarot. All of those experiences definitely inspired this book, as did my love for Sedona, AZ and Ireland.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
What is normal?
What authors, or books have influenced you?
The first books I remember falling in love with were Misty of Chincoteague, Stormy, Misty’s Foal, The Witch of Blackbird Pond, and for some reason I remember the Madeline Books.
What are you working on now?
I am working on Secrets, Lies, and Sins, Book 2 of The Quest for the Shroud series, Brody’s Charm, the conclusion of the Decker Brothers Trilogy, and an unnamed Romantic Suspense.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Layer. Use multiple sites. Split them up over the promo days.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Join a writer’s organization that offers online classes or workshops. I have been a member of Romance Writers of America for about twenty years and the things I’ve learned and information that is available to me through RWA is invaluable.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
There is no right or wrong way to write. You do it the way that works for you.
What are you reading now?
What’s next for you as a writer?
I have several ideas for new stories/series rolling around in my head right now.
