I love my asus tablet with the kindle app.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Chaotic Evolution: Inception is based on a bad dream I had. I woke up and immediately wrote down my dream. That's where the story began and went from there...
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've always wanted to be a writer. My husband convinced me I could self publish. That's how I became an indie author.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy is getting lost in a world of my own, something I created...

My favorite authors are JK Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Quinn Loftis, LJ SeXton, Raven Williams, JC Wing, and Nicholas Sparks. These are just a few of my favorites.
How do you approach cover design?
I do my own cover designs. I want my cover to tell a story of its own. I want it to be as creative as my work.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
My five favorite books are the Harry Potter series. I know technically that's seven, but JK Rowling is amazing!!! The world she created is just magical...
