Smashwords Interview

What kind of books do you write?
I write sweet romance with humor, suspense…and dogs! That’s actually my tagline. Finding your niche is difficult to do. One day I sat down and figured out who I am as an author. The process didn’t happen overnight. I had already published three books. The third book clicked with me and my readers, and I’ve tailored my writing around these factors ever since:
• A clean read with no bedroom scenes or offensive language.
• A tantalizing, fast-paced plot.
• A story without a lot of unnecessary, boring description.
• Down-to-earth heroes and heroines with everyday jobs.
• A rollercoaster ride of emotions you face right along with the characters.
• A special dog to steal your heart.
• A few added facts, a good message, and that important happily-ever-after ending.
When did you first start writing?
Can you image what it’s like to go from a full-time job, remodeling your whole new house, a new marriage, and being an artist and then winding up bedridden with an unknown illness for months and months? Life gets extremely unbearable! That’s when I made two changes in my life: I started writing and I adopted a dog. These two things saved my life and continue to enrich it every day. Besides health issues, adding two autistic kids and an ADHD dog with seizures to the mix makes me enjoy escaping to another world where my heroines can do things I can’t.
