Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I have two books I've already written regarding human sex trafficking and I'd like to edit them and get them out to my readers. I've had great response for the first three, in fact, one reader created a website and dedicated it to awareness of human trafficking as a result of reading my Deadly series.
Who are your favorite authors?
For the suspense genre, I love Harlan Coben. I've read most of his books and although not romance the thriller part of it, so well written, and so intriguing. It's hard to put down a book once started. Of the romance genre, I grew up reading Kathleen Woodikiss, Rosemary Rogers, Johanna Lindsey, Diana Palmer, BJ Daniels, just to name a few, and continue to read them all.
