Where do you currently reside, and why did you choose this place?
I currently live in Virginia. I have lived on an island (Rarotonga, Cook Islands), Florida, and California. But I keep finding my way back to Virginia.
What inspired you to begin writing?
I took a course in college titled Teaching of Writing and I discovered that I really liked writing.
It is a continuation of the Nobleman series. The two lead characters, Nila and Blake, continue their adventures.
What has been the most exciting part of being a published author?
Being able to share my work. I love seeing my stories in print.
What do you do to prepare for a writing session?
Music and Smarties. I pick music that fits what I am writing about and I have a bowl of candy handy (usually Smarties).
Does writing get easier with each project?
It definitely does. I think it is because I gain a little more confidence as a writer with each project.
What has been the worst part of being a published author?
I can’t think of anything bad associated with being published.
What books have influenced your writing?
The House of Night series by P.C. Cast, the Immortal series by Alyson Noel, and The Beautiful Creatures series by Margaret Stolh and Kami Garcia.
Is there an Author (past or present) that you would really like to meet?
Edgar Allan Poe; he is my all time favorite.
If you could talk to your former self, what advice would you give him?
Start writing sooner. Don’t wait.
What has been the harshest critique you have ever received concerning your writing?
From my professor in the Teaching of Writing course. He was honest and I really appreciated the honesty.
As a writer, it is considered unprofessional and inappropriate to give a retort to a critic or criticism. Were it “politically correct” to address your critics personally, what would be the one thing you would say to them?
I had the courage to write the book and share it.
Are you currently working on any other projects?
Currently my editor has a novel that is a twist on Jack the Ripper. It is titled Forbidden Fruit and is slated for release in the late spring or early summer. I am currently writing a 12+ novel titled The Glasshouse Children of Ravenshire. It is a fantasy book and is slated for a late summer release.
What is the last thing you read? Did you like it, hate it?
Actually the last thing I read was a novel titled The Melody of Our Hearts by Roberta Capizzi. I loved it!!
What was the last movie you watched? Did you like it, hate it?
The last movie I watched was Beautiful Creatures. It was Amazing! It obviously can’t compare to the novel but it was a wonderful movie. I loved it so much that I am going back to see it again.
