Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m a full-time kid wrangler–AKA mom–and just finished up my second book. I live in Southern PA with my husband, son, and daughter, and I savor the beauty among the chaos.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest work, scheduled for release on August 30th, 2019, is called “Herding Cats”…and it’s all about the life I call my own. The life of parenting toddlers. There is no better way to describe what I do on a daily basis.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Hmm…I’ve discovered that I have to have a drink handy while writing but absolutely can’t have food. It’s too distracting. Is that unusual?
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Anne Lamott, Jen Hatmaker, Brene Brown, and Luvvie Ajayi are a few that jump right into my brain. They’re fabulous.
What are you working on now?
Promotion! My latest work launches on August 30th, so I’m gearing up to get the word out.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Go big! As my hubby says, you’ve got to pay to play. This time around, I’m doing lots of research and trying to utilize as many outlets as I can.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Keep writing, keep promoting, and keep believing.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
My husband is full of advice and encouragement, so basically anything he says to me is gold. He’s my biggest supporter and fan. I love this guy.
What are you reading now?
“Capital Gaines” by Chip Gaines
What’s next for you as a writer?
I’ve got a few ideas up my sleeves, but addressing the stay-at-home parent is surely included.
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?
Oh my. “Small Victories”, “The Art of Imperfection”, and “I’m Judging You”, perhaps!
