Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
As of right now, I have completed one contemporary romance novel – A Long Sweet Summer. Many more are in the works!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
A Long Sweet Summer was inspired by the weather we have here in Florida. It's always so bright and sunny, it sent me on a daydream path right to this novel about a single father finding love again after heartbreak.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
This is odd, but when I'm struggling with writer's block I chew on a small piece of fresh ginger. It really gets your mind going.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Though I write romance, I adore young adult fantasy and adventure novels. Eoin Colfer was my hero growing up. I also absolutely adore Libba Bray and how emotionally she can write.
What are you working on now?
I'm currently working on a sequel to A Long Sweet Summer, focusing on the main character's ex-wife and her side of what happened.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I'm still learning all of this, but Google is your friend – as is persistence!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write every day.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Never give up! There's very little trouble you can't solve without a little stubbornness.
What are you reading now?
Right now I'm reading a fantasy novel called Heart Stone by Elle Katharine White.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Hopefully a whole lot more writing!
What is your favorite book of all time?
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer.
