1. Could you tell us a little bit about your book?
Josie and Ethan have a happy life together, but debilitating headaches and nightmares begin to destroy it. While Ethan wants to find out the cause, Josie is terrified to delve into her past. But startling information makes Josie realize she must find out the truth.
2. What about your process? Did you have a well formulated plot when you began or did you start writing with a basic idea?
I start writing with a basic idea of what I want and where I want it to go and then I sit down and write and take it from there. Sometimes it flows easily and other days, there are a lot of rewrites!
3. Was there a particular catalyst that inspired you to start writing novels?
Not really, I’ve always wanted to write from as far back as I can remember; but ambivalent parents made me push it to the back burner. Then life gets in the way so I promised myself I would write as soon as I took myself out of the work force.
4. What is your favorite type of leading male?
My favorite leading male is the male who always considers a woman his equal and wants to share everything with her no matter what obstacles get in the way.
5. Can you give us an excerpt of what you consider your best work?
This is from my first book, In a Heartbeat:
“Josie didn’t answer, just did what he wanted. She needed him just as much and he knew it. He pushed her against the wall and slid himself inside her slowly but forcefully. She was wet and warm and felt like velvet. He growled in her ear and said, ‘We’re one, Jo, tied together by desire, love…need and we’ll always be just one heartbeat away from each other.’”
6. What about a single line?
“Throughout the night, she felt him all around her, his smell, his warmth, his touch and knew she was safe.”
7. What would you say is the thing you do best in your writing?
I like conversation, the verbal banter that goes on throughout the storyline. This is what keeps the emotions flowing and touches our souls.
8. Is there anything you would like to share with us? Maybe upcoming book plans or releases?
I’m working on my second novel now which is a romantic suspense/crime story about a woman trying to find her way to a new life after a major tragedy occurs.
