Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m 42 and have 2 beautiful kids. One of which is in the USAF! (Proud Mom) I’ve written two books thus far and am working on book 3 of the series!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is Finding “N” and it’s inspired by my debut novel. Jacob who is the main character in this book is the brother of the main character of the first book. This book explains a lot about how he ended up at his childhood home for Christmas and why he was acting a certain way in the first book!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I try to write on the weekends because I work a full time job throughout the week but sometimes I’m just beat and can’t. Sometimes I wake up with a scene playing and have to get it down on paper!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
My favorite book of all times is “Where the Red Fern Grows” by Wilson Rawls. Portia Moore and J.R. Ward are two women authors that have influenced me also.
What are you working on now?
My current WIP is called “Finally Home”. This will be Jamie’s book who is the sister of the men in books 1 and 2.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’m constantly on Twitter and Instagram!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
My advice for new authors would be…
Keep going! No matter how hard it seems, somewhere, someone needs your story!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The best advice I’ve gotten is:
Pay for editing! You need your story to be read with little to no mistakes so that it doesn’t take away from your story!
What are you reading now?
Unfortunately I can’t read while I’m working on a book! I always feel that I don’t want to take someone else’s ideas subconsciously and they end up in my story!
What’s next for you as a writer?
My next step is to finish book 3 and hopefully start book 4!
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?
This is a hard question! I think that I would take the first 4 books from the Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward!
