1.What got you into writing? My life long love affair with reading and the desire to add to the romance genre. Plus a lot of hard work and a little bit of crazy.
2.What is a usual writing day like for you? It usually consists of hefty doses of caffeine, music and being distracted by social media!
3.Do you get writers block? If so, how do you overcome it? I don’t believe in writer’s block. *shoo, go away!
4.Are you a plotter/planner when it comes to writing a story? Yes I do spend a fair amount of time plotting and working out character motivations and scene order before I begin writing. It helps me stay on track as I get into the thick of the story.
5.What was the publishing process like for you & any advice to aspiring authors? I began with self-publishing and I am so grateful for that opportunity. Then I was fortunate enough to land a traditional publication deal too, so I consider myself a hybrid author, which is very fun. Advice I would have for others is not never give up, keep challenging yourself, take risks and learn all you can. Succeeding at this takes dogged determination and don’t let your self-doubt stop you.
6.What has been your highlight since becoming a published author? So many things…seeing my book in bookstores, reading reactions and reviews online from readers. To me, that was a big moment because it meant my story was out in the world being experienced by others, which was an amazing feeling. It no longer existed only in my head.
7.Can you share a little of your most recent book with us? When I Break, out now is about Knox, a sex addict who begins to fall for his addiction counselor. It is part of a three-book series.
8.Besides writing, what do you do in your spare time? I’m a new mom to a little baby boy, and I have an adorable husband – both of them keep me busy. But I also love to read, cook new recipes and get pedicures!
9.If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional, who would it be & why? I’ve been staring at my screen trying to figure out an answer for close to five minutes now and am coming up blank. I think the reason why is that I love my life, I’m living a dream come true and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. 🙂
10.Do you have anything that you want to say to your readers? Yep! I appreciate every single one of you. And invite you to visit me on social media!
