What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Twisted Devotion is the fourth book in the Twisted series and it releases April 21, 2020!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Hmm, I don’t think so. I enjoy writing late at night and in coffee shops.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Wendy Higgins, and Becca Fitzpatrick are all influential authors in my writing journey.
What are you working on now?
I’m planning to release Twisted Devotion and getting ready to dive into edits for my young adult paranormal romance story!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Social media is so important! I think some authors and even new writers don’t spend enough time on their content marketing on social media.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Work hard. The harder you work, the better you’ll feel when you crush your amazing, epic goals! Also, find your people. A support system of fellow authors is an incredible thing.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Write the story YOU want to read.
What are you reading now?
Mostly craft books, and anything with the enemies-to-lovers trope! The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black is currently on my nightstand.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Working on my young adult novel to submit to publishers this summer!
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?
Save the Cat Writes a Novel and… a few Jennifer L. Armentrout novels.
