Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I wrote my first book in the first grade and haven’t stopped since! I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have stories in my head. To date, I have written fifteen published works, mostly paranormal romance. It’s one of my favorite genres to read as well. I love mythology and pull many of my ideas from Celtic, Native American, Norse and Greek myth.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Cupid’s Bow is my latest book, a Valentine’s novella. It’s my first set in a world with Greek gods and it was a lot of fun. Taking place in Vegas, the book ‘stars’ Cupid. Yes, that Cupid, but he’s no cherub in a diaper, he’s a hot Greek god. Cue lost his bow because he doesn’t believe in love anymore, but the Fates may have found a way to change that.
A hot sexy romp with a bit of action and heartbreak. Just the way I like them!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t know about unusual, lol. I don’t write linearly though, I tend to write my stories in scenes, then stitch them together.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I love so many authors, in so many different genres. Definitely Nora Roberts, Sir Walter Scott (Ivanhoe is my favorite book of all time!) and Stephen King.
I also love Kresley Cole, Tessa Bailey and Pippa DaCosta.
What are you working on now?
Right now, I am working on my first ever contemporary story. A romantic suspense featuring an Australian art thief, a reclusive painter and a whole lot of twists and turns you will NOT see coming. Clean to the Bone should be out in late 2018.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am honestly terrible at marketing, as a writer, I really just want to WRITE. Word of mouth works fairly well for me, my fans are amazeballs and I love them to pieces!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write, write…and write some more. Join Facebook and Goodreads groups to learn about covers, genre and marketing aspects. Network. And WRITE.
Also, don’t give up. Most people don’t hit it big over night. Just keep writing!
What are you reading now?
I’m reading Play Dead by Anne Fraser. Loving it. Also, just finished Wall of Winnepeg & Me, which was phenomenal.
What’s next for you as a writer?
More writing! It’s my mantra. I have a contemporary romance series in the works, along with a shifter PNR series, a UF series and a surprise novel in late 2018 which will make my long time readers veeeery happy.
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?
Ivanhoe, Sir Walter Scott. The Amber series by Roger Zelanzy (it’s in two hard bounds) Through a Glass Darkly by Karleen Koen and The In Death series by JD Robb (I know the last is cheating and IDK!) lol
