Where do you get your inspiration?
Everywhere. A book, a conversation, a movie, or a dream
Can you tell me a little about each book?
The Guardian Series is a complete series that is dark and twisted. I had no clue where it was going to when I wrote it, or how twisted it would be.
What inspires you to write?
My family, my need for creative outlet
Tell me about how you got started as a writer.
I always have been better expressing myself in writing, but never thought I could write a book until a few authors convinced me to try. I was sick with strep, bored out of my mind, so I started writing.
When did you first publish? How did publishing make you feel?
March 23, 2018. Amazing the idea that people actually wanted to read what I wrote.
What advice can you give future authors?
Stay true to yourself. If you aren’t comfortable with what you are writing, or sharing it. Then don’t write it.
What was the easiest book for you to write?
Xistrosie’s Law. I just had so much fun with it.
What was the hardest?
Hmmm Cherish. I didn’t want the story to end.
What is your biggest challenge as you’re writing?
Time! I am like a dog after a squirrel. Too many ideas and not enough time. Add in 6 kids, yeah time.
What do you think of promoting your work? Do you find it easy or hard?
I hate promoting. If you ask me I don’t mind talking about it, but I never know who to compare my work to or if it fits into various genres
How would you describe your writing style to people who have never read your work?
First person present with a tendency to irreverent characters. I like to write cleaner stories with closed doors.
Have you ever participated in Nano? If so, did you make the goal?
Yes I did in November. It was fun to see the goals met.
How supportive is your family of your books?
Not so much my earlier stories, but my kids books and more recent adult books that are closed door they are.
Have you ever had anybody in your life ever try to discourage you from writing? How did you cope?
Not really discourage writing, but the time and the monetary aspect. I just tried to manage things better.
Do you have a team that helps with your writing process and promotions?
I have a few beta readers who are great helping me flesh ideas out
How many drafts do you write before you are pleased enough to publish?
One draft that is highly edited
Are any of your books in audio? If not, is it something you eventually want?
Yes. Protecting Rose, Sanctifying Rose and A Taste of Dragonfire
What are some of your favorite books and authors?
I loved Anne of Green Gables as a child. Now I love to read Orlando Sanchex, Shayne Silvers, and a couple other authors. Asking me to single them out is so mean!
Can you tell us about some of your upcoming books?
I will be finishing up the Lab Shifter Chronicles (formerly Prometheus Curse). Then I will be alternating Raven Wars with a new series, Twisted Kiss
