Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I started writing back in 2002, and it has always been a huge passion of mine. But I really didn’t start pursuing it as a career until 2015 after I became a stay at home mother, and that’s when I was able to rediscover my inspiration. I have only written one book so far, but it feels amazing to finally have my work published.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My Brother’s Keeper is the title of my latest book, and it was inspired by a famous quote from The Bible.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I have to have a pen and notebook in my purse at all times just in case I come up with random ideas.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I feel that Anne Rice’s early works are a huge influence for me, plus I feel James Patterson is a great storyteller because he knows how to paint the perfect picture of intrigue and suspense.
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on a horror series, and the first book is titled “Don’t Wanna Know”.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I run ads on Facebook, Instagram and Amazon. Plus I promote my books on Twitter, as well as connecting with readers on Goodreads.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t second guess yourself or allow harsh criticism from others distract you from your goals.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What people think about me is none of my business–RuPaul Charles
What are you reading now?

What’s next for you as a writer?
Definitely a cookbook and hopefully I will be starting a podcast by the summer.
