Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I imagine I have been writing since before I could write. When I was little, I would run around the house, scribbling squiggles on little pieces of note paper and leave them all over the house. Even though the symbols on the page where nothing but gibberish, they were important writing to me.
And that importance of the written word hasn’t changed over the years. As I got older and learned words, I also learned how to use them to tell the stories that were in me to tell.
I created my first series, Voyages of the Seeker, when I was 16. Standing out underneath the blanket of stars in my backyard inspired me to create a female character who had the kind of adventures I could only dream of. And to have those adventures on another planet, in another solar system far across the Galaxy was even better.
Fast forward a number of years, I’m not going to say how many years, and amongst raising a family, I have written many other tales, stories, and series. I have so much work in my desk drawer right now that I’m spoiled for choice. But I am choosing and submitting my work wherever I think it will tell the best story.
I have so many tales to tell. Now is my time to tell them.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Never Enough-Book One of the BFF Squad. My day was always really hard about grades. far harder than I thought he should be. When I went to write Arlene’s story I know the tale she had to tell would be one about overly demanding parents and what true problems were.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not really. unless you consider writing multiple series to be unusual.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
My inspiration for this series stemmed from reading Sweet Valley High series by Francine Pascal. I also consumed a lot of Sweet Dreams and First Love from Silhouette title as a teenager.
What are you working on now?
You mean what am I NOT working on now. I have the BFF Squad in the works. I also have a sci-fi series, a Regency romance trilogy, a murder mystery series and horror series all simmering on the burners.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Facebook, twitter and whatever else I can find to get my work in the readers’ hands.

It doesn’t matter how slow you go as long as you go.

The Huxtable series by Mary Balogh. It is a Regency romance series.
What’s next for you as a writer?
