What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Living in someone else's world for a little while.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. It's all still a little overwhelming that anyone even wants to read what I write. I can't thank my fans enough. It's like one crazy roller coaster ride.
What are you working on next?
Right now I just finished the first book in a Spin-off Series. The new series is called Secrets of Savannah. The first book is called Secrets Behind Those Eyes. I have just started the second book Secrets in the Lyrics.
Who are your favorite authors?
Oh My God! Kasey Millstead, Jamie McGuire, Abbi Glines, Colleen Hoover, Tabatha Vargo, Sophie Monroe, Casey Peeler, RL Dodson, Michelle Valentine, Katie Ashley, Jenn Foor, Jasinda Wilder, Harper Sloan, Kendall Grey, Tessa Teevan so many more I list I'm running out of room LOL
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Normally my Five year old or my Husband disturbing me LOL
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Up until recently I had a full time job, now I started going to the Gym, I like to listen to music, spend time with my son and husband. I love to fish, kayak, generally spend time on the water when it's warm.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Facbook, Amazon, Smashwords, word of mouth, suggestions a little bit of everything. I'm kind of a speed reader so I go through books pretty fast.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
No I really wrote a bunch of short stories as a kid and a lot of angry sad poetry as a teen.
What is your writing process?
I get an idea and I may jot down a few notes or names. I open up a new doc and start writing. Later in the story I may start making notes as to the order of how i want things to start finishing up. But that 's pretty much it.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Pretty much anything Edgar Allen Poe had I was in love with.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
