Q: Have you always known you wanted to write?
A: Yes, for as long as I can remember I have had stories in my head that I wanted to share—to make real tangible things.
Q: What inspired you to write your first book?
A: I am always thinking of and writing down ideas for stories and characters that I want to bring to life. I felt that it was time to tell their story from beginning to end.
Q: Do you write everyday? And do you have any writing rituals or quirks?
A: I try to write most every day in some form or another even it is just one sentence or phrase that I can come back to. As for quirks, I know for sure that I like to hand write everything first with certain pens and notebooks that appeal to me and it is usually later at night when the house is quiet.
Q: What do you thinks makes a good story?
A: Anything that transports the reader outside of themselves and makes them feel something—anything. It does not matter if it is desire, hope, fear, or sadness as long as it connects with them and stirs the reader.
Q: What do you find the hardest part about writing?
A: Well... sometimes I have characters warring in my mind that want to come out in the book that I am currently writing that do not belong there. I also find it frustrating when I have hit a wall or have to stop when things are flowing.
Q: Did you learn anything from the writing process?
A: Yes, definitely a lot about everything it takes to bring a novel to fruition. From bringing the characters to life to editing/software procedures, the learning never stops!
Q: Do you see writing as a career?
A: I hope to. It is a dream of mine to be able to write full time for a living. For now though, I am taking it one novel at a time and seeing where it leads.
Q: What do you like to do when you are not writing?
A: I enjoy spending time with my family and best girlfriends. I also like to walk and work out whenever I can. But on most nights I love to curl up with a steamy romance novel!
