~ Author Interview ~ 

When and why did you begin writing? 

In 2010 I woke up from a dream and had the title of my first book running through my head. Minutes later, I knew the other two titles, and had the entire story-line of The Rose Trilogy all worked out. 

Who encouraged you or what made you decide to write a novel and seek publication? 

I’ve been a member of Shelfari since 2007, and was asked to become a Librarian for them after putting in countless hours of editing. Being so emerged in books and seeing all the wonderful series on a daily basis while working in the backend of the site, to say that books had become my life, was an understatement. I’m now one of 13 Librarians for the hundreds of thousands of members, as well as one of it’s top 50 editors. 

What drew you to write Paranormal Romance? 

I always go back to the phrase, “Write what you know.” And while my genre is considered paranormal for the unrealistic and fantastical elements, it’s what I know. It’s what I prefer to read and what I’ve studied in my actual life. ( case you’re wondering, yes, I’m a witch.) 

Of all your characters, who’s your favorite, and why? 

Raven. She’s tough but sensitive, sexy but tom-boyish, and has a wicked sense of humor and a sharp tongue. 

What would you love to write someday but haven’t yet? 

I started a contemporary romance trilogy that I’d love to return to. I just have to figure out how to write it without someone getting bitten and turning into a vampire or werewolf. LOL 

Were books a big part of your life growing up? If so, what books would you say influenced you most as a child? My mother was the reader in the family and to this day, she teases me about how it took thirty some years for me to finally catch on. 

What are two things people might be surprised to know about you? 

I’m 44, have 16 tattoos, and cuss like a sailor. (Sorry, Grandma.) I started teaching dance when I was 15 years old. 

When you’re not writing, what do you enjoy doing? 

Watching TV and movies, and playing games with my family. Three things always found in your refrigerator: Stuffed olives, Soda, Cheese Writing is often a sedentary profession. 

Is there anything you do to beat stress and keep in shape? 

I hike and exercise in my home, and dance as often as possible. You’re in line at Starbucks. 

What are you ordering? 

Java Chip Frap with Whip or a Caramel Apple Spice 

Where do you go when you need to recharge? 

 Sedona, AZ or back home to Colorado.
