Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m a sugar cookie aficionado. I drink too much tea. And I have a weakness for shiny things.
I’ve written many books (many of which will never see the light of day), but I have only recently started publishing.
There are six stories in the Naughty Neighbors series–welllllllll, technically, there are seven. (The last is a super-special bonus.) I’m publishing them from Memorial Day to Labor Day. All the stories in the series are short, sexy reads. Each stands alone (no cliffhangers!) and promises to leave you satisfied.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book scheduled to be released is BURN. It’s the fourth in the Naughty Neighbors series. It’s set in New York City–a pretty sexy city, for all the congestion and noise–during a blackout. And, well, what happens when two strangers have hours to pass in the dark….
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t…think so? But what’s normal?
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I don’t think I have enough room to answer this question. I started reading romance novels in junior high and high school, so I have thousands of inspirations. Thousands. I love historical romance with a burning (throbbing, pulsing) passion. 😉
What are you working on now?
I’m working on the series after Naughty Neighbors. More short, sexy reads–because life frequently doesn’t allow us to just sit and read for hours.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t fear the blank page. Fill it up. Like La Nora says, you can fix a bad page but you cannot fix a blank page.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Oh gosh. I don’t know. My parents and teachers all had such wonderful guidance for me. I suppose, if pressed, I’d say something my mom has always said: you can never fool another woman. You might be able to fool a man, but another woman will always see through.
And, um, the golden rule. That’s pretty important.
What are you reading now?
Nothing! I’ve got hectic family obligations right now and I’m falling into bed at night without even glancing at my Paperwhite. It’s a disaster.
What’s next for you as a writer?
More! More books, more readers, more fun!
What is your favorite book of all time?
Agony. There’s no top one. Maybe a top one hundred…
