Q: What do you like to do?
A: I am sure this won’t surprise anyone but I love to read and will happily devour 2-4 books a week. My Kindle requires charging quite often! I like to cook but am not very good at it. I keep on trying though – one of these days I might serve up something that the dog will eat. You know you have kitchen issues when a golden retriever turns down your homemade pancakes. I have two children who think I am fabulous on some days and evil on others. Both threatened to run away to New York City before the age of five. I like to think having a creative mom will give them something to talk about in therapy down the road. I just celebrated fourteen years of marriage last May and am pretty certain that the majority of wedding guests on both sides of the aisle are shocked that we lasted. Some days, so am I.
Q: In which genre do you write?
A: Contemporary Romance (with erotic and suspenseful elements and sometimes paranormal). I am eclectic.
Q: What is your preferred method of writing?
A: It’s a little nutty but here goes. I get an idea about a character and then let that person talk to me. Told you it was a bit wonky. Then I start walking around the neighborhood with a digital recorder and just dictate some sort of opening scene. Once that gets transcribed I have to sit down and do a crazy looking outline of major characters and plot points. I keep walking and talking and eventually have enough rough stuff down to start fleshing out the scenes. My neighbors think I am a loon and I occasionally have to shut up when I am getting to a really hot scene — we have a lot of kids in this ‘hood! The whole method works for me but I still haven’t lost those last ten pounds of what I still refer to as baby weight.
