Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Hmmm, about me. Urgh, this is always the hard part. I have ten books under my belt so far, with about a thousand more in my head screaming to get out. hehe. No one ever said you had to be sane to be an Author right?
let’s see…Wife, Mother, and the crazy lady who hears voices in my head.
I was born in the South, Ironically called North Carolina.
For my sins, I married a Highlander and moved to Scotland at the age of twenty-two against my poor sainted mother’s wishes.
My family often bemoans my inability to do anything “Normal.”
I now make my home in England with my husband, three children, cat, and dog.
My all-time favorite quote is,” For fools rush in where angels fear to tread,”
Often it’s me that is saying it as I run headlong at the front of the line.
You can find me online and in the millions of social media around this interweb thingy.
I am always happy to hear from her readers.
Ps… Made a promise to myself. Being the mom of an ASD child, if I ever broke the Allstars.. lol yeah that’s gonna happen. That bonus is going to charity. Here is the link, I don’t have to get the sales, for you to donate! Help Children with Autism get the help they need! http://www.autism.org.uk/
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
How to Piss off A Dragon
I had written paranormal romance from the beginning, but one day, this sassy little blonde thing with ADHD jumped up in my head and started waving her arms, screaming, “Do me, do me!” Have I mentioned that I have actual imaginary individuals with personalities living in my head? I’m sure there’s a medical term for that. Thankfully, they don’t ask me to do anything other than write their stories.
Anyway, that’s how Lexi escaped my mind, followed by a very exasperated Shayne.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Other than arguing with imaginary characters about how a book should be written?
I like to go to that place that serves very expensive manna in the form of coffee to write. the background noise helps me get into the zone. lol
I always plot on paper and write on the computer.
I tried to plot on the pc once, it did not go well, for anyone.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
sooo sooo many.
The main person that influenced me was Connie Suttle. I have been a huge fan of hers for years, and after stalking her, I mean following her on Facebook, we became real-world friends. Connie inspired me to take up the proverbial pen and write myself.
What are you working on now?
Right now I’m working on an Anthology for Realms and Rebels. Its called the Red Brotherhood and is an alternate world reverse harem. very hot!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
facebook groups. I spend a lot of time promoing on them. Dont let anyone tell you differently, the majority of my time is advertising. I could write so many more books if I had to spend less time promoting them. lol
Do you have any advice for new authors?
No matter how frustrated you become, or how down and out, just keep writing. You will get fed up, you will cry, you will have your ups and downs, but keep at it. Join groups, make friends in your genre. The author world is very small, and we are close-knit. We have a code, that we have each other back and help out when we can in our groups and genres.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Write every day. even if its rubbish and the words are not flowing, keep writing. The block will eventually go away and the gibberish will turn into something great. Writing is like a muscle, you have to use it to make it strong.
What are you reading now?
Royally Exposed. Its a Reverse Harem book by Catherine Banks
What’s next for you as a writer?
I have several books in the works, but I have to get the next Dia book out, or my readers may revolt. So that is at the very top of my to-do list.
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?
Now, that’s just mean. I’m going to break the rules here since I love to write in Reverse Harem and go with #whychose?
