Q: When did you begin writing?

A: My first creative writing stint began when I was in junior high as I began writing poetry and then stories. I then began reporting and writing for the local high school newspaper when I graduated. The idea of love has always been a large motivator for my writing.

Q: Do you have any strange writing habits (like standing on your head or writing in the shower)?

A: I’m unsure of how strange this is but I can’t write without music on. The genre of what I listen to varies depending on what I’m working on. I attribute this to having ADHD (seriously) as I’ve never been comfortable with complete silence.

Q: What writing advice do you have for other aspiring authors?

A: Don’t let market trends, friends, or fans dictate what you write. If something is in you to be written put it to paper. Worry about selling it after. Get it out first.

Q: What literary character is most like you?

A: I’m an odd combination of characters however in Truthful Silence I’m actually very similar to Anthony (despite being female myself). He isn’t speaking to me right now but I’m sure he will.

Q: Which famous person, living or dead would you like to meet and why?

A: John Wayne, most of the men in my life have reminded me of him in one way or another. He was a great man who was very patriotic and unabashedly said what he felt.

Q: Do you write only paranormal romances?

A: I write whatever is in me to write at that time. I have a fondness for paranormal romances but I certainly don’t limit myself that way.
