Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
To date, I have written and published two books, That One Small Omission and The Phone Call, both published through Solstice Publishing. My third novel, More Than I Can Say, is about to be released by Solstice. All three are contemporary love stories.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My most recent novel is More Than I Can Say, and it was inspired by both a trip to Seattle, and a local mushroom farm.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I really like to write while I listen to Irish pub music.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I love the work of Janet Evanovich, which has both humor and romance.
What are you working on now?
Right now I am writing my fourth novel, which is a sequel to More Than I Can Say, as well as writing a memoir.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Twitter! I have great followers who re-tweet my postings, bringing new readers to my work.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t give up! Even if you don’t get published, just completing a rough draft of a novel is an accomplishment most people will never complete. Second — use a professional editor!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Visualize what you want to have happen, and keep re-visualizing it!
What are you reading now?
300 Miles by P. A. Glaspy.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I am finishing the first draft of my fourth novel, and am in the editing (professional editor) stage with my memoir.
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?
Jitterbug Perfume, the newest Demille and the newest Evanovich.
