Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Most authors will tell you that writing is all they’ve ever wanted to do. I guess I’m one of the few that don’t fit in that bucket. Writing a book was never on my bucket list until three years ago. On my list was: Climb the Corporate ladder. Check. Go to Europe. Check. Complete a half marathon. Check. Eat chocolate daily. Double check. Isn’t this on everyone’s bucket list? Catch up on two seasons of Games of Thrones in one day. Painful, but check. And finally, devouring romance books at an alarming pace like the unashamed book addict I am…Over a thousand checks!
Living in Nebraska with my soul-mate hubby, I pen my magic world at night, while paying the bills with an actual paying job in the corporate world during the day. Writing is just an all-consuming passion for now, but boy, if I could dream…
My other loves include my simply amazing, incredible and talented children, a steamy novel, great friends and family, and a warm ocean breeze gliding over my sun drenched skin with a cocktail in hand.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Gosh..SO many authors. I’m a romance whore…I devour romance books at a rate of 1-2 per week even when I’m writing. If you follow me on Goodreads at all, you’ll see how many books I read. I’ve read that some authors who are writing don’t read or they don’t read in their genre, but I do. I think excellence breeds excellence, so if you read a talented author, they can help inspire you in different ways.
So if you want names, it would most definitely be the most notable PNR authors: J.R. Ward, Larissa Ione and Lara Adrian, but there are so many others I could also name.
I’ve also been very much into contemporary and dark romance books lately and one of my all-time favorite authors has to be Pepper Winters, hands down. That woman is brilliant with a pen (computer, whatever). I’ll buy any book of hers without even reading the description. To me, she is that good. Her subject matter is somewhat dark, but she has an incredible talent for drawing you into the story and making you feel like you’re actually living it alongside her characters.
But when we get lost in our books, that’s what we’re looking for, aren’t we?
A good author entertains you, but a brilliant author draws you in so thoroughly you don’t want to read those last few pages because you don’t want the story to come to an end.
Ultimately that’s my goal.
What are you working on now?
Right now I am working on a new series entitled the Colloway Brothers. It is a series detailing the romance and angst of the brothers. Book one is Forsaking Gray and is set to release at the end of the summer.
