Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m a Seattle-based romance author, professional eavesdropper, and cake connoisseur. A Slippery Slope is my first novel, but the X Enterprises series launches soon!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
A Slippery Slope is a contemporary NA second-chance romance about a woman launching a lube company with the one person she’s avoided for years. It was inspired by my own journey launching one of the most popular brands of personal lubricant, though the romance and the events in the story are a work of fiction!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Every now and then, if my brain has been working on a project, I’ll get a middle-of-the-night idea that I can’t help but jot down in the Notes section of my phone. Deciphering the notes in the morning is always fun!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I love reading all genres, with a particular affection for YA, romance, and thrillers. Some of my favorite authors are Maggie Stiefvater, Jodi Picoult, Janet Fitch, and more!
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on the X Enterprises series about employees at the hottest sex toy company in Seattle. Get ready for some racy romance reads!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I love social media and reader-oriented websites for promoting my books.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write as much as possible, in your best mood possible, and let your enthusiasm for your project keep your momentum going.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don’t pin your happiness on what other people think of you. You can’t control what someone is going to say or think about your work, so make sure you’re doing it because you love it.
What are you reading now?
I’m devouring The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn and it is incredible.
What’s next for you as a writer?
More books! I hope to publish at least four books in 2018.
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?
Oooh, great question!
1. Some sort of island survival guide
2. The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn, because it’s the kind of book you can keep rereading.
3. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss because it’s huge and lovely and would keep me reading for a while!
