How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has allowed me the freedom to get my book out to all of those people who would otherwise be unable to find answers to their questions about the paranormal.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love writing because it helps me to connect with people. I love to help people who are seeking answers to their paranormal problems and being able to help them gives me great satisfaction.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are very important to me they stimulate my writing with their questions about the paranormal. it allows me to write about more subjects that they are interested in.
What are you working on next?
I have just completed a new book entitled: Paranormal Encounters. It is there are 23 real-life paranormal encounters that I have experienced in my life. it is the first in a series of 3 books.
Who are your favorite authors?
Mary Stewart, Phyllis a Whitney
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My animals inspire me to get up at 5:30 each morning. I live on a 3 acre farm in Oregon City. Until recently we raised red angus cattle. I have five chickens and 2 dogs.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I work full time as a nurse and enjoy watching sci-fi and doing work around the farm.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I go on line and enter a subject that catches my fancy like animals, countries and ancestry.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes it was Petal's Golden Wings, which is a children's Christmas story about a fairy named petal and her quest for the perfect gift for the new born babe Jesus. It is available at amazon.com.
What is your writing process?
Most people start at the beginning of a book when they write, but I start in the middle with a concept and then work around it and as I do more ideas or information comes to me. My guides and guardians help me when I get stuck. you might call it divine inspiration.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember being read Charlottes Web by E.B. White. My teacher read it to our first grade class.
How do you approach cover design?
I try to find something eye catching, maybe a picture that I have taken if possible.

Madame will you talk? The crystal cave, The Hallowed Hills and the last enchantment all by Mary Stewart, the complete works of Shakespeare,
What do you read for pleasure?
easy to put down romance novels, usually by Harlequin. I choose these because they are light reading and I rarely have time to pick it up. several weeks can go by before I get back to the book and these are just light enough to remember what the plot was.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a HTC OneX on which I have kindle for android as I do not have a reader yet.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Word of mouth, Facebook and press releases
Describe your desk
I have a built in desk that is eight feet long, which my husband build for me. This is the one I do all of my writing at. I also have an antique Sheridan desk which holds an asundry of paperwork and office supplies.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up for the most part in Portland, Oregon. My grandmother was a big influence She was an avid reader and she always urged me to read. I was that child you always saw walking to school with her nose stuck in a book. I was reading on a college level in grade school.
When did you first start writing?
Its kind of funny how it started. My cousin's son needed a story written for his high school English class. He asked me to help. He said it had to be a Christmas story so I write Petal's Golden Wings, my children's book, in about 45 minutes.After that I write series of book's entitled Susie, which I intend to edit and make into eBooks.
What's the story behind your latest book?
This is the first in a series of three books. It is a collection of twenty-three real-life paranormal encounters. These stories recount some of my personal experiences as a psychic medium, with the supernatural. From my earliest recollections at the age of nine to present day. I recount my visit to a graveyard on Halloween night, a demon trapped in a mirror and I help a woman be rid of a demonic attachment.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Lack of response from traditional publishers that are too afraid to take a chance on a new writer.
How has being a published author changed your life?
Being published has opened a whole world of being able to touch peoples lives in a good way. I enjoy helping people and I have had so many people contact me through my website, www.mysticconnections.org, which is referenced in my book.
