Question & Answer:
- What was the simplest romantic gesture you’ve ever received?
My husband took a trip to Forks, WA with me…because Twilight! We spent 6 days hiking all over the Olympic Peninsula. The cabin we rented had no phone, internet, or television. And I loved every second of it!
- What was the hardest scene you’ve ever written?
The opening scene to my book, Fatal Temptations. The story is my own personal therapy book. A lot of the heroine’s tragic background is my own life story.
- Who’s your favorite character? Why?
My favorite character to write was Savage (Rise of the Pride, Book 3). His name says is all. I didn’t have a plan when writing his story. I knew he was an alpha male, but once the words started flowing, even I was shocked at his power.
- Tease me with the sexiest quote from one of your books.
From “Rocked (A Rockstar Reverse Harem Novel) Cycle of Sin on Tour, Book 1” — “Look at them as I’m giving you pleasure,” he says. “They need to be involved, too. Not just me. I have the pleasure of giving you this release.”
- If you could, how would you help the Indie Writers Community?
I would love to start a website to be a central resource for seasoned and aspiring indie authors to find affordable graphic designers, editors, & PR companies who have the knowledge and training to assist you in getting your book in front of people. Sometimes, it’s frustrating to spend hours and hours searching for someone to work with.
- Why did you choose your genre?
I’ve always heard the saying, “Write what you love. Write what you know.” Well, I have been in love with paranormal romance for what seems like forever. That’s the one I love. As far as what I know, my best friends in the rock band, Artifas, take me on tour with them so I can immerse myself in the music scene to write my rockstar romance novels. I’ve been on the road with them several times over the last few years. I even drove the bus last summer!
- What was the first romance novel you read?
Oh, wow. I don’t recall the exact one, but I believe it was a Harlequin by Debbie Macomber.
- Name one song that always makes your writing playlist.
That’s easy, but it’s also a two-part question. I listen to different styles of music depending on what genre I’m writing. If it’s my paranormal romance books, “Red Hands and Black Deeds” by Shaman’s Harvest is always playing. If it’s my rockstar romance novels, then “Alive” by Artifas is always at the top of the list.
