Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Educator, author, lover of languages and cultures are some words people who know me would use to describe me. I am a single parent who enjoys romantic comedy and Marvel superheroes. My favorite thing in the world to do is to breakfast at 1 AM (totally bad for the health) while watching The Andy Griffith Show. I have written too many books to count. Most have been ghostwritten for others.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my latest book is Want Not, Touch Not. This is part 2 of Her Crime, His Time. I originally wrote Her Crime, His Time as a novella but one reader was dissatisfied because she wanted more. This prompted me to look deeper into the relationship of Jaz and Terrell and expand the story to Want Not, Touch Not which I consider even better than part 1.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write when commuting to and from work, at airports, just about anywhere really.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I love Catherine Coulter’s, Lavyrle Spencer, Constance o’Banyon and Johanna Lindsay
What are you working on now?
I am working on a time travel romance novel that I am excited about.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Writing in series is a good promotional tool, especially when the first book is permafree. Facebook is a good tool with many reader” groups available to authors.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I believe every one of us have a story inside of us. Don’t be afraid to write your story, if it’s even just for your own pleasure.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
A good editor is worth his/her weight in goal.
What are you reading now?
I am reading the Andrew Grey’s Carlisle cop series.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I would like to spread my wings a little and diversify into other genres, one of which is children’s books, more specifically for tweens. I remember my love for reading started at this age with books like Nancy Drew and Sweet Valley High.
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?
Gone Too Far by Suzanne Brockmann, The Gamble by Lavyrle Spencer, Johanna Lindsay Man of My Dreams, Wolf Runner by Constance O’Banyon
