I live in Southern Oregon and enjoy spending as much time outside as I possibly can. My partner and I often find ourselves hiking with our two dogs when the weather permits it. Fishing, camping, and photography are also activities I greatly enjoy. If the weather doesn’t permit going outside I like to curl up with a sketch book and draw whatever comes to mind.
I got into writing as an outlet for personal therapy and have since expanded that into a hobby and profession that I enjoy. I often write down anything that comes to mind, combing through the ideas and expanding on plots that sound the most interesting. I like to write believable relations between people overcoming unfair hardships set before them. I always love a happy ending and no matter the hell my characters go through they’ll always get their forever person.

Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: I find inspiration in everything. Be it a conversation I have with my friends, a picture, even songs. Though my greatest inspiration comes from my own lack of sleep. Some of my craziest and most enjoyable plots arise from a brain that’s both sleep deprived and sugar boosted.
Q: What is your writing process like?
A: I write two to three chapters a day, more if my life allows it. The next day I’ll reread and edit what I wrote previously, adding where needed and removing other sections. Once that is finished I write my next few chapters. After I have finished a book I reread the entire thing again, checking for consistency errors and further grammar mistakes. A third, or fourth time never hurts. I spend a lot of time editing on my own.
Q: What do your favorite thing to write?
A: Romance! Whether it be sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, or supernatural if I can put a romantic spin on it I want to write it.
Q: Why write alternative romance?
A: Because I can, and I love it. I started to write because I like this genre so I want to add my own pieces to it.
Q: Is there anything that helps you write?
A: Yes, music. Usually I listen to classical or soundtracks while I write. Of course I do listen to things like rock, country, and opera as well. It really depends on my mood at the time.
Q: How many books do you write at once?
A: I tend to work on many different things at one time. I do give most of my concentration to one work, but I’ll take a break and work on other things if I get stuck. I find it allows my idea to flow, not restricting myself to a single thought line.
