I love books. I love to read. I love to write. My mind never stops…characters, plots and settings are constant in my thoughts. I love to create a story that will pull you in and build characters to fall in love with. I write from the heart.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything! I write to bring them enjoyment and when I hear from them that they have enjoyed my story then I feel successful. Their reviews and comments make my heart smile and inspire me to continue writing.
What are you working on next?
I am presently ready to begin edits on my second book...a sweet n spicy love story filled with emotion and those everyday hesitations we all have had wondering if "this is the one?" Also, I am finishing the first draft of another Romantic Suspense filled with action and romance. Love the thrill of twists and turns combined with a developing inevitable attraction!
Who are your favorite authors?
I have so many! I have read so many great books! Danielle Steele has been my favorite since I was a teenager and my collection of her books are my treasures. For Romantic Suspense I would pick Alison Brennan...she is a master of twists and turns with a great romance! I love to read new authors that grab my attention in many different genres. If I'm pulled in...I can't put the book down!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I wake up still dreaming of plots, settings and characters and the desire to write! And of course, my kids :) and the excitement to check my social network sites and communicate with my fans and fellow authors and begin another great day together :)
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When not writing, I'm working my day jobs and spending time with my kids and pets...and trying to squeeze in time here and there to read :) I work 2 jobs...one in Finance and managing a building. I have 2 amazing kids that keep me busy and I love it! And then there's our loving pets...a Puggle and 2 Guinea Pigs that are just too cute :)
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I discover ebooks through fellow authors, fans and my social network sites. There are so many great sites out there to help you find a great book to read!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Absolutely! It is my second book to be published. I revised and revamped it but it's still my first and very special to me :)
What is your writing process?
Peace and serenity :) I escape into the world of my characters. I never have to make the time because it is where I want to be.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember being drawn in to a new world. It felt comfortable, so right that I couldn't put it down and it has been that way for years. I usually have a few books I'm reading at the same time in different rooms and one on the go with me.
How do you approach cover design?
I have an idea to share with my publisher and then completely trust their decision on the cover design. They are amazing when it comes to cover designs! Just check them out at http://www.bookstogonow.com All their book covers will grab your attention and then their authors will draw you in to a great story!
