Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I began my writing career at age 11, writing poetry. I continue to write poetry to this day but writing full, beautiful, vivid novels is my true passion now. I published my first book in 2010 and, as of June 2019, have published 25 books, with ideas churning out for many, many more stories to come
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Who We Used to Be (Do-Over series, book 1) is my latest book and it was inspired by my love of second chance romance. There’s something so inspirational about two people coming together years after a break-up and realizing that this time it’s different, this time it’s better, this time it’s right.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I have a tendency to have 3 or 4 books going at once until one finally grabs my full attention and I finish that one and then go back to the others.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Richard Adams, Richard Bach, Ella Frank,
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on the first book in a new series. The book is called Better Latte than Never and the series is Love & Coffee. This one is about a socially awkward introvert who falls in love with his emotionally stunted and commitment-phobic boss who suffers from self-esteem issues that leave him unable to say no. Together they embark on a journey that helps them both find strength the they never knew they had.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to promote my boos usually.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t ever give up. If you have an idea for a story and you write a few thousand words but then it just dries up – put it aside and work on something new. Just because something isn’t working right now doesn’t mean it won’t ever become a great story.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don’t read reviews. And write for yourself, not for anyone else. If you love what you write, others will too.
What are you reading now?
a new book coming from Garrett Leigh called Kiss Me Again
What’s next for you as a writer?
What isn’t next? I have 5 different book series’ now and I plan on more books for all of them, plus I have 3 or 4 story ideas that will more than likely be stand-alone books. All are in the beautiful, inspiring, passionate and intense world of gay romance.
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?
Ella Frank’s Try, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Watership Down and The Weight of the World by Devon McCormack and Riley Hart
