GIVEAWAY? I will be giving away Frozen, book one in this series to one lucky commenter.
Please tell us about yourself? I live in Mobile, Alabama with my mom and two precious kitties. I have a deep love of Greek mythology and adore a good vampire story.:-)
When and why did you begin writing? I began writing as a teenager just for my own enjoyment. I started to write professionally three years ago at the encouragement of my dear friend a talented author, N.J. Walters.
When did you first consider yourself a writer? I have always considered myself a writer. And a reader for that matter.
What inspired you to write your first book? I love fantasy novels but so few really good fantasy romance books are out there. Its not a huge genre as yet. So I decided to write what I wanted to read.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? In Reflections Of Ice? Not really. I just want people to enjoy a good story and hopefully they’ll enjoy mine.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? (Has anyone ever realized it?) Yes. Not the world shifting, at least I don’t think so.:-) But the heroine is on the run from domestic abuse and unfortunately that really happens.
What books have most influenced your life most? Oh God too many to name. I love books and have so many favorites.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? N.J. Walters hands down.
What book are you reading now? What do you like, or not, about it? I’m currently reading the Warriors of Poseidon series by Alyssa Day. I like everything about it. All her heroes are hunks I’d kill to be with.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? The authors aren’t new, just new to me. Nalini Singh, J.R. Ward and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
What are your current projects? I’m currently working on the sequel to my vampire series and the next sequel to this series.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book? Nope. I love this book.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? Yes I get sick a lot and that interferes.
What do you do when you’re not writing/editing or thinking about writing/editing? Reading, playing with my cats, listening to music.
Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work? N.J. Walters. She is so dynamic. You actually feel for her characters and cry if they are struggling.
Do you have any advice for other writers? Never stop trying. If you believe in yourself and your work, it will happen. Just be patient and persistant.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers? Thank you all for reading my books. You are my rock and the reason I continue to write.
Who is your publisher and how did you connect with them? Muse It Up Publishing. I followed an editor there from another house.
How can we find you? Website, Facebook, Twitter, blog, etc. - please share your public links.
