Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a daycare teacher during the day / writer at night, and I love what I do. With my Ranlyn Series, which is a series of six siblings who stumble their way into the marriage market in the Victorian era, I got a contract with Red Sage Publishing.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my work-in-progress is “The Magic of Loving Him,” and it was heavily inspired by Lisa Kleypas’s own work.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t think that I do. I sit in a quiet, comfy area; rock out to some soft metal; and I do my best to ignore the world.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Lisa Kleypas is the reason that I write romance novels.
What are you working on now?
I’m still working on the Ranlyn Series.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Don’t be annoyingly persistent, but never give up.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I am a new author. Please advise me, old authors. To new WRITERS, I’m just going to tell you to trust yourself. If you have it in you, you’ll know what to do.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
I’m reading Olivia Parker’s “To Wed a Wicked Earl.”
What’s next for you as a writer?
To move on to the next book. I also want to attend a book conference sometime within the next year.
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?
Pretty much any historical romance by Lisa Kleypas would suit me.
