Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I've been a writer for as long as I can remember. When I was in the first grade, I wrote my first short story about a young girl who was friends with a group of frogs that lived in a pond near her home. One day, she discovered that the frogs had been captured by an evil witch who intended to turn them into frog legs. At the time, seven year old me thought this was a disgusting horror. It wouldn't be until many years later that I tried frog legs myself and found that I quite enjoyed them (and yes, this story did flash through my mind!). The young girl tricks the witch and rescues her froggy friends and they all live happily ever after together. I have it bound and illustrated with the terrible images that only a seven year old can draw, and it's one of my favorite possessions. It's still in the top of my closet, and I do reread it from time to time to see just how far I've come.
What are you working on next?
Once I finish the conclusion to my Zombie Apocalypse trilogy, I have several new projects planned out. I'm not sure where I'll start, but I'm hoping to try some new things. I have plans for more inclusive character casts, as well as an attempt at a different writing style. Of course paranormal romance is my favorite genre to write, so I have many plans for more stories involving vampires and werewolves (as well as some about mermaids, demi-gods, aliens, dragons, and witches), but I also want to try my hands at epic fantasy and maybe pure romance.
