Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am the youngest of four children. I was born in a Chicago suburb but my parents moved to Colorado when I was one year old. I grew up in the mountains of Colorado and still live there. I have a cat and a dog and my husband of 24 years.
I started reading when I was three years old thanks to my older brothers who were in school by then and taught me when they got home. I have loved reading ever since. I read every genre: nonfiction, mystery, fantasy, horror, romance…you name it, I’ll read it if it is well-written.
I started writing in 2014 and have finished two books. Only one is available right now as I am in the final editing stage of the second one.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Crossing the Border is the first book I have written. It is a romance based partly in Canada and partly in the United States. It is the story of two people who have each suffered a great loss and who have given up hope of coming back from that loss. Peter Sullivan and Denise Delaney meet in a bar and have an instant connection, but since Peter lives in Canada and Denise lives in the U.S., they have to decide whether or not they can make a long-distance relationship work.
The book took about a year to write, and I had a great time writing it. I hope you read it and enjoy it.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I wouldn’t say that I do. I have a full-time job as well, so I write when I can, which is about a chapter every day or two.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
As I said, I will read anything that is well-written, but my favorite authors are Robert Jordan, Patricia Cornwell, and Stephen King. Life and classic books are my inspirations for my writing.
What are you working on now?
I am on the final edit of my second book and have started my third. These two books are the first of a series. I have no idea how many books the series will have when I am done. I guess it’ll be as many as I can think up.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Amazon and its Kindle Direct Publishing have worked pretty well for me.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Not really since I am a new author myself.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Write something every day, even if it is only a paragraph or two.
What are you reading now?
Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series (for the second time).
What’s next for you as a writer?
I want to write a sequel to Crossing the Border and get my “Identity Series” published.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series (hence the second time through fourteen very, very long books).
