- Tell me a little about yourself.
I’m a California girl transplanted in Florida. I am addicted to Starbucks, reading, and having a good time. I can usually be found wearing a smile. Writing is my passion, and I love great movies.
- What books have you written? What genre are they in?
I have published As Snow Falls which is contemporary female literature or so I thought until I realized it has a better male following. I have been working on my Baby Girl Series, a collection of short stories about Cleo’s quest to find her humble or maybe not so humble beginnings. I have also written and will be publishing soon Eye of The Storm a horror/comedic novel.
- Why did you become an author? What led you down this career path?
I have always loved to write, creating my own fictional reality inside a book. It’s a medium for my imagination to go wild.
- Was it difficult to write your first book? Or did it come naturally to you?
My first book wasn’t difficult to write. I had an idea and didn’t stop until it was written. The difficult part for me is editing, editing, editing.
- What are some of your dreams and goals?
My dream and goal is to live on the beach in sunny Florida, along the panhandle, and write full time. I have been mapping out short milestones I need to reach in order to make that happen. I’m halfway there.
- What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I read a lot. When I’m not reading or writing, I enjoy travelling, laying on the beach or watching a suspenseful movie. In the summer during the day I can usually be found at the pool floating under the sun.
- Who inspired you to become a writer?
I think reading is what inspired me to become a writer. I have always loved to snuggle up with a good book and get lost in its pages. I love when fans leave reviews or send me a message about how much they loved my book. That tells me they got lost in my world and enjoyed their stay.
- Who are some of your favorite authors?
V.C. Andrews is my all time favorite author. I still have my collection of her books that I purchased back when I was in high school. I also really love the Sookie Stackhouse books, although I’ve never read anything else by Charlaine Harris Over the past couple years I have started reading mostly indie books. My obsession started with memoirs of an Ordinary Girl: The Middle-ish Ages by Terri Klaes Harper and hasn’t stopped. Since that time I have found many other fabulous indie authors such as John Reinhard Dizon, P.S. Winn, Jeniann Bowers, John Tucker, and most recently Max E Stone. I could go on but I would have a book.
- What is in store for your readers next?
This summer I plan on releasing Baby Girl Book 3: City by the Bay and in the fall Eye of The Storm: Eilida’s Tragedy. I also hope to participate in NaNoWriMo again in November and I hope to release Baby Girl Book 4 sometime around Christmas-ish.
