I am moved and inspired by J.K. Rowling! She inspires me in so many ways. I am constantly reminding myself of her story when I think that things aren't looking so well.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Each day is a new day to achieve another goal and write another chapter.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?

Describe your desk
Sometimes my desk is "sitting in my bed."

When did you first start writing?
I started writing non-stop January 1, 2017.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am a mother of two sets of twins! I know what it is like to raise four kids and I know what it takes to stay healthy in the process.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I am original and I have confidence in myself. What I publish is more than likely inspired by my personal experiences.

No one knows the feeling of having twins unless they’ve had twins! I have two sets of twins, eleven and seven years old. I have never known the feeling of doing one thing at a time when it comes down to changing diapers, fixing bottles, and giving bubble baths! Being told that you’re expecting twins is a day that will always remain in your memory, even when they’re grown.
