Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I'm a bit all over the place when it comes to genre. I love reading them all, therefore I love writing them all.
My first novella was a romance, then came the Re-Runner series of 4 books, which I've recently combined into one full length novel (for those readers out there who prefer that, to the series format).
Following that I published a short story series in the Fantasy Shifter Romance genre and have just published the 4 x stories as a boxed set for holiday reading…. oh, and then there's The Cursed Arrow. Another Paranormal, Myths and Fantasy Legends short story.
I have such an interest in true life memoirs… those of famous people and stories of everyday heritage. It's never-ending… this abundance of story ideas. Will I ever live long enough to get it all out of my head and down on paper?!? (figuratively speaking)
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The Sky Kingdom short story series is a world of fantasy… but I wanted to break away from the standard wolf/vamp/bear/lion Shifter story; so these stories are about the beautiful creatures of the sky.
Eagles, Hawks, Owls…. and the kingdoms they command (and fight over) and the human part of themselves that is often at odds with their blood-lust nature.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don't think my style is unusual… and some may even envy it.
Feet up, I recline on the lounge with my laptop hooked up to the BIG TV screen.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
So so many, but I particularly like Cassandra Clare and Diana Gabaldon
What are you working on now?
Marketing… sad but true. If only the modern day author could just write, but we are a business and one must learn all facets of that business to be successful….
Though for my next project I'm trying to decide between a Memoir or a Children's book.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Sites such as this have given me a great boost and start over the last couple of years… I've now built up a sizable email list, but I'm always happy to reach new readers.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
While it makes sense to gauge what the public wants …. there will always be readers who favour many different genres. I don't think you can be a successful creative, if you aren't writing what you love. If writing is just hard slog, just to make a buck – I pity you. There's no pleasure, satisfaction or fulfillment in that
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
The Husband's Secret by Australian author Liane Moriarty.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Undecided: A memoir or children's book
What is your favorite book of all time?
