Publisher info

Since the age of seven, I cannot remember when the written word was not a part of my life. I didn’t consider myself a writer though, despite having excelled in writing at school, or having kept a journal since I was fifteen. It wouldn’t be until my late twenties when I made the connection that I’d been writing for almost as long as I’d been reading, thus I felt it was okay to admit, I was a writer. From there it wasn’t long before I knew I was destined to wow the world with my short stories, novellas and novels At the time of this writing, I have four books in print. I didn’t go through a vanity press, or spend the days sending query after query to publishers and literary agents. Instead, I did everything except the printing and binding; from book cover design, to buying my own ISBN and building my own website. I found a book manufacturer close to home who took my manuscripts and turned them into printed and bound masterpieces

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I don't remember the very first, but I do remember the first one that had the most impact. It was called Broken Promise - I don't remember the author's name. The story was about a group of five siblings whose parents abandon them at a diner. The oldest does her best to keep her family together despite them being separated into different foster homes and such. It was the first book I ever read that brought me to tears. I have since wanted to write stories that moved readers on an emotional level.
What do you read for pleasure?
Pleasure reading for me involves exploration of several genres. I used to read strictly horror - Stephen King being my favorite author, but since I decided to take my writing career seriously, I read a wider variety. Mysteries, non-traditional Chick Lit, and humor all find their way onto my e-reader.
