Q: Besides being an author, what other jobs have you held?
A: I’ve been a dietary aid in a retirement home, Recreation Programmer for a number of long-term care facilities, worked for a traumatic brain injury outpatient program, an occupational therapy assistant and a chiropractic assistant.
Q: Who are your favorite authors or books?
A: I really like urban fantasy and paranormal books. My favorite authors include J.R. Ward, Patricia Briggs and Karen Marie Moning. I also love MM, MMF, MMM and MFM books.
Q: What would you improve about your writing?
A: I love commas! My poor editors probably have fits over the number of commas I use, so I would definitely like to cut back on that. I also really like adjectives so I really need to work on using less of them.
Q: What’s your writing day like?
A: I normally get up around 5:30 a.m. and have the kids up and dressed before I leave for my day job at 6:30 a.m. I am home for a couple of hours at lunch and that’s when I try to focus on revisions, my website or edits. I go back to work for a few more hours and am usually home by 6:30 p.m. I have dinner with my husband and kids, put the kids to bed, shower and usually by 8:00 p.m. I am able to carve out about two or three hours for writing. Then it’s off to bed to get ready to do it all again.
Q: Are you a pantser or a plotter?
A: I’m definitely a plotter. I used to try and write by the seat of my pants but I would write myself into a corner without a way to get out. I have several half-finished books because of this. Now I plot at least the major plot points and the outcomes so I know where I’m going and how I’m going to get there.
