Q: What is your writing day like?
A: After I drop my son off at school, and I'm off from teaching, I write from 8:45 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. breaking for lunch for thirty minutes. I usually go over the completed chapter and edit some eye catching mistakes. Save the editing for another time. I find I am too exhausted to edit more than that at one time. I wait until the manuscript is completed for the in-depth polish edits.
Q: What can we expect to see from you in the near distant future?
A: I have so many things in the works. The first novel I ever wrote, Walking in the Shadows, will likely be my next project. Going over it I realized most of it is in the ‘telling' format and not enough showing. So I will go back over it and send it in by the end of February.
Q: What would you say is the hardest and the easiest part of being an author for you?
A: The hardest part is finding the time to write, and a close second is finding new leads to promote the book in release. I like to think outside the box with promoting. Find new people to target.
Q: Where is your genre of expertise?
A: I usually write in the erotic romance genre. I like to portray sexual liberation of women in a positive way. All my books must have a hopeful if not happy ever after. I also like to pick issues we as a society deal with and create a tale from it. Such as; Walking in Shadows is a recovering anorectic who falls in love with the notorious bad boy of rock and roll. Three Hearts, One Love deals with a woman loving two men who can't let them go. I broach the subject of civil ceremonies and non polygamy relationships.
Q: Is there one that you favor above all else?
A: If I had to choose one particular genre to read it would be historical. I can't write it too well, but I love reading it.
Q: What are your plans for this next year (2011)?
A: My goal for this New Year is to be a best selling author, have two books contracted for print release, and have one out in print.
Q: What did you want to be when you were little?
A: I couldn't decide. Two things I learned to love early on were teaching and law enforcement. I became an Air Force soldier at the age of twenty and went through the law enforcement program. I am now a teacher. All my life I have been telling stories, boring my family and friends but until recently—2005—I didn't consider writing.
Q: How do you relieve stress?
A: I like to play games on the computer. World winner and GSN are two of my favorite sites. If you log on and find me, say hello.
Q: What advise would you give to new authors?
A: Keep up your creative vibe. Work on it everyday. Don't give up your day job until you can support yourself with writing, and promote...promote...promote.
