Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
To date, I have written three ebooks. “Women, What Cosmo Didn’t Tell you”, “In Her Dreams”, and “Poems of a Lost Heart”. I am currently working on a Fantasy Fiction entitles “Chaos Calls” and am hoping to make it a series.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
“Women, What Cosmo Didn’t tell you”. It’s a satirical ebook that can currently be found on Amazon. Being a perpetual tomboy by nature, it was inspired by the many male friends I have that ask me why women do the things they do.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I can not write without classical music playing on low in the background. I’ve never understood why, but the stories only flow with the classics playing. Could be that I’m just an old soul.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Harper Lee, Jacqueline Carey, Anne McCaffrey (big fan!), Stephen King, Neil Gaiman (Massively big fan, have nearly all his Sandman and Black Orchid comics and graphic novels.), Jane Austen… the list is quite varied and long.
What are you working on now?
“Chaos Calls” is the titled of my current work in progress. It was inspired by several things, honestly. My own heretical background, my love fantasy fiction, a paper I wrote for an English class on the history and origins of Names, and a wanting to tell an updated story that brought the old world legends and stories into the present.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’ll let you know when I figure that out!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write as often as you can, even the gibberish! DON’T read the comments unless you like trolls that are trying to make you as miserable as they are. Stick with it, everyone gets rejected!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
You are your own worst enemy. Conquer yourself and nothing stop you.
What are you reading now?
Truth? To Kill a Mockingbird, I’ve lost count how many times I’ve read it.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Finishing “Chaos Calls” and getting it published!
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?
Obviously “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Whatever I can grab by Neil Gaiman, “Sense and Sensibility” and “Master Harper of Pern”.
