When did you first start writing?
I've always enjoyed creative writing and this became more apparent to me during high school. In 10th grade, I won an award for "Best English Student" of my class and then went on to take AP English Courses. In college, life got in the way and I ended up studying Psychology and thus, writing was put on hold. Once I graduated, I found myself applying to different publishing houses for work, but eventually ended up in Market Research. Interestingly enough, it wasn't until I was in between jobs after graduating from business school that I finally found some time and set myself up to start writing my first novel, Teaching Mia. The words simply started pouring out as the story had been stuck in my head for a few years and I haven't looked back ever since!
What's the story behind your latest book?
I was inspired to write Teaching Mia after I graduated from business school in Spain. My experience during my time there was so rich and intense, it gave me plenty of source material to work with. Somehow I started imagining what it would be like for a girl to go through the same experience, but by herself and completely alone. That's when the back story came to me of a wounded girl who was fleeing her past and trying to make a better life for herself in a foreign country. It just seemed like the perfect scenario for someone who had a lot of obstacles in front of them and presented a lot of challenges to struggle through. And of course, a romantic hero who would eventually save her from it all!
