What inspires you to write?
I start writing at age thirteen encourage by my beloved 7th grade teacher, Ms. Santana. From then on, I’ve jot down fanfic or stories lines that I’ve came up with. It give me a chance to escape real life for a bit. Letting me getting into my charters mind and emotions. Thinking about on my childhood I always had a writer’s intuition. Everything fell into place at age 23 with help from amazing people I became an author.

I try to follow a plan/outline or such and yet when I sit done to write something even better come out of my head onto my computer turning my book into a new direction that I had never thought off when I was planning my book.

New give up hope even if you have zero fan base, keep on going posting like you do have a hugs fan base because you’re never know what one of your books stand out to other’s.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
This is a story….
My fist book, Timeless Omerta. It all began on my 22 birthday, I went the newly open Mob Museum and to my shock, Frank Cuttolla was there signing his book. I meet him and told him that I want to be a Mafia-Romance and he told me that if I need help just let him know. I said okay thinking he has better things to do then helping me a young CP girl at the time. I found him on Facebook weeks later and we began to talk, he always inviting me to this and that. I base my fist book "Omerta Affair" off on Tony Spilotro’s reign as The Las Vegas Mafia Boss, in the 1970s. He had it all, running the Crime underworld. He could have any woman he wanted in Las Vegas, instead, he became romantically Geri Rosenthal. At first, it was a Casino's FanFic to the 1995 move, that I was witting and putting online for free, but my family and friend told me it was Very too good to be a FanFic. After I was done with my book Frank hooked me up with some people and that how my book came to be. Now he’s Uncle Frank to me.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I am 1,000% sure that book publishing is not going anyway any time soon, people love to read and we need books, also textbooks for our childen to grow. Life without books is like taking air away.
I happy to say that I've just got on broad with Wild Dreams Publishing but a little amount of time with then I see that Wild Dreams Publishing staff and their Authors are super close. This is my frist time with a real Publishing house so I'm thrill to see where it might lead me next.
