She lives in San Diego, California with her husband and, in her spare time, enjoys haunting the halls of comic and science fiction conventions, playing old-timey tabletop role-playing games with her friends, and binge-watching British TV shows on Netflix.

Smashwords Interview

What’s your favorite genres?
I love so many genres and so many books, it is hard to pick. I read all kinds of fantasy and science fiction (especially urban fantasy), romantic suspense and paranormal romance, young adult books of all kinds, and spy thrillers. I adore getting swept away by a new and exciting world peopled by fascinating characters. It's also a must for me that the book be well-written so that I never get taken out of the story and can just go along with the flow of writing. Fortunately there are a lot of great authors out there so finding good stories is never a problem.
Describe your favorite kind of hero to read/write?
I fall head over heels for anti-heroes. Give me a tortured bad-boy who walks a line between good and evil any day. I am fascinated by their motivations and their internal struggles. Writing Kristof in Cast into Darkness was tremendous fun because part of him always wants to do the right thing, to become a better person, but his upbringing and his situation force him to making less-than-great choices. And the consequences of those choices create lots of exciting drama for Kate.
