Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am currently writing The Chronicles of Elizabeth Blake series. My first book in the series, Wicka, was just released in spring of 2014. I was inspired by traveling across Europe solo at a very young age, and many travel adventures since. I live in Toronto, Ontario with my husband, three children and a fish named Cow.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I liked the thought of using a name that would immediately allow the reader to know what the story was about. I also didn’t want people to confuse it with Wiccanism, which is why I changed it from Wicca to Wicka.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I am currently travelling France, looking for great scenes for my next book. I guess that is not unusual, but it sure beats writing from behind a desk!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Hands down Jane Austen. I know that’s not overly original or hip in today’s world, but I love how smart and beautiful her writing is while tackling the issues of her day.
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on the sequel to Wicka.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I have used Amazon’s KDP program to promote my book for free, which did very well and placed me on the top 100 free Amazon books category and #1 in one genre. This month I am running a Kindle countdown where my book will be $.99, which, of course, I am promoting through Awesomegang!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Always follow that voice inside of you that tells you something would make a great story. If you believe in it, chances are many others will as well.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I am looking forward to completing the sequel to my first book. Also, I am launching a hard copy of WICKA later this year!
