Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written eight books and they are of a diverse range of genres but at the heart of each one – even the darkest – is a nice romance.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is called 'The Golden Desires' and it followed on somewhat from my thinking that we live in a world where we constantly want 'more', but wouldn't it sometimes be nice to leave all that 'more' behind and return to somewhere more relaxed and peaceful?
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write as I speak, so I am still learning to hone some of my writing skills. Every day I learn something new.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Mostly Stephen King and Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. They are completely different from one another, but both have hooked me in to their storytelling ways.
What are you working on now?
I am presently writing the follow up book to 'The Golden Desires'. I hope to have this released before the end of November 2016.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
This is the first that has accepted my book! So a big thanks to My Book Place!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Enjoy writing. It shouldn't be a chore or stressful. Just do it because you love it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
I am presently reading a book called 'The Scarlet Letter' which was written in the 1800s! Now and then I like to remove myself from modern English language and let myself immerse in English from a century or two ago.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I will keep writing, and keep learning about ways to promote my books.
What is your favorite book of all time?
The Wicked Wicked Ladies in the Haunted House by Mary Chase. Never get tired of that one!
