Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m still fairly new to writing. My first romance was published in March 2014, and I’ve written eight contemporary romance novels ranging from sweet to erotic.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is Breaking His Rules, published by Tule Publishing Group. I wanted to write story about an independent, bold and sassy heroine while dipping my toe into the billionaire romance subgenre. Nothing says alpha male like a billionaire and I absolutely adore alpha male heroes.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
No, not really. I write when the urge strikes me. But if I’m not feeling it, I don’t force myself to write daily. Writing is my hobby, not my job so I go with the flow.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Jane Austen is my idle. I adore her witty banter and dry humor. Another favorite of mine is Megan McKinney, especially Till Dawn Tames the Night. There is something about historical romance that sucks me in as a reader, but it requires a lot of research to write so I generally stick to contemporary romance. Historical romance readers are brutal if you get your facts wrong.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on a gothic romance series called Tortured Souls. I’ve always been interested in this subgenre and finally gave into the desire to try my hand at writing one.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’ve had the most success with FaceBook Ads when it comes to promoting my books.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write what you love – the rest will fall into place. Readers can tell if you heart isn’t in the story. So trying to write what is ‘popular’ isn’t a good strategy.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Anyone who says there is a ‘right way’ to write is a lying b#tch! Everyone has their own method for writing. Find yours and stick with it.
What are you reading now?
I’m reading Masterful 3 by Jesse Joren. It’s a dark romance (but not really that dark) with an interesting twist. I love supporting indie authors.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I’ve started dabbling a little in middle-grade fantasy as my children’s request. It’s fun to shake it up sometimes.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Pride and Prejudice. I never get tired of reading that book and I discover something new every time I read it.
