The mother of one, she currently spends her days writing, reading, procrastinating, and protecting her son from himself as he pretends that he is a superhero.
Her first novel, Surrender To You, is also the first in a series, as well as a standalone. The story is a contemporary adult romance with characters in their late 20s, early 30s. The other books in the series will involve secondary characters introduced in the first.
Love Renewed is her second contemporary adult romance. The first in her Love Trilogy, it can be enjoyed as a standalone novella. The other two books in the series, Love Desired (#2), featuring Ramsey and Arabella, and Love Hidden (#3), featuring Gwyneth and Lucien, will soon follow.
You can find all her novels, present and hopefully in the future, on Amazon, B&N, Kobo, All Romance eBooks, and Smashwords, as well as those they distribute to – if applicable.
What inspires you to write?
Writing has been a passion of mine since I was young. I have a couple stories sitting around from then, but now I mainly write adult romance novels. I use inspiration from my life and the lives of people I know. Everyone has a story and I believe every story should be told.
Tell us about your writing process.
I get an idea and I sit down and write it. I let the story flow all on its own. Sometimes I don’t write for days, because I don’t know what I am supposed to be writing. Then, I will get pieces and parts or whole scenes. For my one novel, I wrote 20,000 words in 4 days, only to not write again for a week. It works for me, although I do wish I could write a bit faster most of the time.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes, I do. Honestly, I can’t write without their voices telling me what will happen. They often change the story while I’m writing it as well, especially if I’ve decided something will go this way…and they say, “Nope! sorry! I’ve changed my mind!” and do what they want. Ha.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just to write. And keep writing. Do what you love, have others read it to make sure everything makes sense and nothing needs more work, get it edited, get a nice cover…and put your work out there. While you want to put out your best work, you may never think your work is ready and therefore, you won’t let go. But do it. Let go and hit publish.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I went self-publishing. I chose it because I love to have control over every aspect. If I do well, I can congratulate myself. If I do bad, I can only blame myself. It works out for me. I also didn’t want to wait. I wanted to do it NOW. New authors should decide their own path – and do lots of research beforehand!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think it will continue pretty much the same, except big publishers will give more chances to unknowns without them having to hit bestseller lists on Amazon and such beforehand. Indie publishing will also grow and be a bigger part of eBook sales, definitely!
