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 jotted down fanfic or storylines that I’ve come up with. It gives me a chance to escape real life for a bit. Letting me getting into my charters mind and emotions. Thinking back 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.
Tell us about your writing process.
I try to follow a plan/outline or such. Yet when I sit done to write something even better came out of my head onto my computer turning my book into a new direction that I had never thought of when I was planning my book and the outcome is better than I plan.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Ok, Some times my characters can be fussy and yell at me until I write something done. To me, I feel like a mother to all of my book characters. LOL
What advice would you give other writers?
NEVER give up hope even if you have zero fan base, keep on going posting like you do have a huge fan base because you never know what one of your books stand out to others.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
My first book, Timeless Omerta. It all began on my 22 birthday, I went to the newly open Mob Museum, 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 than 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 had based my first 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, I just lost him due to convid19 but I shall be forever grateful to have met him.
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 children to grow. Life without books is like taking air away.
