Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’ve written 3 books and working on #4.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Out of Silence, I believe that women abused by spouses or a partner need to be encouraged to leave. These women need to hear they are not alone and there are people, counsellors that are willing to help. Police should not return the abuser to the home the abused person(s) live at. Often when the police leave the abuser becomes more angry and abusive. I want a spotlight on abused people.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I like to stand up when I write.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
What are you working on now?
Romantic novel. Much happier than Out of Silence which was difficult at times. I prefer to write very early like 4:00 a.m. I have a clear head and high energy.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
This is my first time promoting my books.
Do you have any advice for new authors?

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?

I have read books my whole life so I don’t spend too much time reading these days. I love a good mystery.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Finish my latest book – Romance with some sex novel
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?
Any of John Grisham’ books would keep me busy. I also have all movies made from his books.
