Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
So far I have three full length novels published, and a short story. I am in the process of a fourth novel, and have many more planned!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Deeper into Darkness is my most recently published book. It's a sequel to my first self-published book, a dark thriller from the point of view of a serial killer. Both books are from the point of view of a killer. I love the dark twists, and it was super fun to write. I had the idea to write from a dark point of view and just srarted running with it!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I like to write with white noice in my headphones. Usually I prefer the sounds of rain. I also love writing at night.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I have so many favorite authors that have influenced me. Some include Gillian Flynn, Chuck Palahniuk, Tana French, Ruth Ware, Megan Miranda, Jamie McGuire… and there's so many more! I love writers who can string togehter big twists and dysfunctional relationships.
What are you working on now?
Right now, as of 2019's summer, I'm working on the third book in my Darkness Series. It's the final book in the series/trillogy, and I'm super excited about this one!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I'm currently working on establishing a newsletter. I also promote on all of my social media. I am just starting to branch out to places like Awesome Gang, BookBub, etc!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
My best advice is to write what you want to read. If you enjoy your writing, someone else will too! Not every story is for every reader, and becuase of that your stories won't be for everyone. So don't get discouraged, because even if they're not for everyone your stories WILL be for someone! Every story has a reader!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The best advice I've heard is to get my but in the chair and write! The more you write, and the more you read, and the more you exchange with other writers, the more you improve. I learn and grow in my writing every single day, and with every single project!
What are you reading now?
Right now I'm reading a few horror books, that I'm loving! I'm also always looking for thriller and dysfuntional romance recommendations.
What’s next for you as a writer?
My next steps are writing and publishing new stories that excite me. I have a few ideas I'm so ready to outline and then start writing!
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?
I'd bring Night Film by Marisha Pessl, Gone girl by Gillian Flynn, and Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire.
