In third grade, I hand wrote an eighty page story about two horses in a spiral notebook. I thought it was imaginative for an eight year old at the time.
What do you read for pleasure?
I mainly read mysteries. I love mysteries, crime drama, thrillers, and ghost stories. I also have a slight appreciation for werewolves too, but I prefer mystery, thriller, horror, and crime (law enforcement) type stories.
What is your writing process?
I come up with a general idea for a story, usually the beginning and how I want it to end. I then plan out a few chapters methodically before writing a rough draft. After the rough draft for the chapter is written, I go back and add, delete, edit, re-read it to make sure I am ok with it. Then I repeat it for next chapters.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The Deepest Kind of Love: A female criminal analyst sees a crime happen and is forced into protective custody under the care and watch of the mysterious Russian Secret Agent Wilhelm Addams. Enduring the danger and close calls, can these two learn to look past their mutual dislike for each other and find, dare we say it, love?
This story has been completed and I am currently working on the sequel to it.
What are you working on next?
After I complete Deepest Kind of Love's sequel, I may branch out and do a story about werewolves...or maybe a ghost/supernatural story...I haven't decided yet.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Very simple: the readers. I want the readers to enjoy my stories and enjoy reading.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I have a lot of reasons to get out of bed each day: my daughter (who is a baby), my husband, my two dogs, my family....I am blessed with my little family.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I mainly browse or if I get recommendations. I also read reviews of stories to see if the story may interest me.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
With my family or working. I enjoy walks around parks and reading of course.
