Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Well, this is actually my first book but it is something that I have wanted to do my entire life. I wrote a book of poems and short stories when I was 8, and at that age, I told myself I would publish it one day. I lost that book !!!!!!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Good Cop Girl Cop: The Secret Life of a Police Officer (What you always wanted to know about policing but were afraid to ask). I was a cop in Australia for 15 years, and I feel that Hollywood glamorizes policing and people have a lot of misconceptions. I wanted to give them a peek into the REAL life of a cop and nothing is off-limits. The book is gritty and packs a punch, just like the job does.!!!!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
YES I DO !!!!! But don't tell anybody !!!! I actually write whilst watching TV, yes with the sound on!!! I used to also do my college essays whilst watching the crime channel. I hate to write in silence 🙂
What authors, or books have influenced you?
This is going to sound REALLY awful, but I am brutally honest just like my book….I am NOT a reader. There, I said it !!!!!
What are you working on now?
I have just published this book, and got some amazing reviews and feedback, and people are asking for more, so I guess I will be working on Part 2 !!!!!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Well I am new to this but I am going to say mybookplace.net !!!!!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Yep, just do it (sorry Nike). If you want to write, then do it. My current cover pic on Facebook says "Writing: Somewhere between torture and fun. " I would have to agree, at times !!!!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don't cut corners on cover design. You MUST get it done professionally because that is your introduction to readers, it is literally the first thing they see. !!!!!
What are you reading now?
Your website……remember I am not a book reader, which really freaks some people out considering I am an author. I prefer to write than read.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I am going to let the dust settle a little bit after just publishing my first book, before I jump in with both feet and go again. !!!!
What is your favorite book of all time?
I don't actually have one, yikes, is that bad??
