Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m a 45 year old mother of three girls and two grandchildren. I live in tropical Queensland, Australia where the humidity rolls off your skin in summer and winter is a blessing! I’m surrounded by mountains and am blessed to lived on my own property with a couple of horses, three cats and a crazy Belgian shepherd. I’ve been published since 2009 with harlequin, Tule, Pan Macmillan Momentum and Soul Mate Publishing, and have over twenty-five books published, with a handful more I’m waiting to get rights back on. I write mostly erotic romance, but have also dabbled in inspirational (Believe) and sweeter romance.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Lady in Red is my latest book. It’s inspired by the movie Pretty Woman, and the escort industry. I find it a fascinating culture.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Yes, I like to jump around from book to book, and lose focus easily. Only deadlines keep me on track!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I think a mishmash of authors and books have influenced me, but at the moment I’m loving Young Adult with its slant of paranormal.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on book 2 of my VIP Agency series, called High Class. Lady in Red was the first story of the series.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My newsletter, followed by my blog and website is probably my best way to find me.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t be in a rush to publish, work on your craft and perfect it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
I”m about to start a Nora Roberts book: Public Secrets
What’s next for you as a writer?
I want to write outside the box and start on projects like my story, Parallel Roads, (released March 2016) where reality isn’t quite reality.
What is your favorite book of all time?
So many!! Recent stories that stick with me are The Master and The Professional by the fabulous Kresley Cole. But the story that seemed to jump out at me at that question, is Lady Vixen by Shirlee Busbee. A great bodice ripper story!
