Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My passion for writing has been lifelong. I have boxes filled with manuscripts, short stories, and articles that I never thought about trying to get it published until recently. Over the past year, I decided it was time to publish some of my recent work. I haven't looked back!
After plenty of hard work and long days, I now have six novellas published, one short story, and two compilation sets. I am currently working on a new Sci-Fi Romance series that I am excited to share with my readers.
Though I recently lived in England for seven years, I was born and raised in Canada, where I now reside with my lovely British husband. I spend my days writing and staying in touch with my readers and friends.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My last book published was Holden – Beringer Brothers Book 2. It is a shifter short novella that I published in May. I was hoping to follow up with Reece (book 3) but have delayed it for now while I work on a new project.
I was inspired to write the two Beringer Brothers books based on listening to friends relationship experiences. Of course, the bear shifter element was added because I love those types of stories.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
When I write I like to listen to music that inspires me. I dedicate a set time each day to write.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
There are many authors that inspire me to write. In terms of those that influenced my latest books, I would have to say T.S.Joyce and Zoe Chant are my favorite. I read books in different genres and have many authors that I love. As an avid reader, I read one to two books a week.
What are you working on now?
My current work in progress is called Invasion (Warriors of Taulon Book One). It should be released in late July or early August.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am still learning about marketing but have found that Facebook and various book promotion sites are the best ways to get my book in front of readers.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
There is a ton of conflicting information out there about writing and publishing. All I can say is that you must find your own way to do things that work for you. The more you write, the better you become at your craft. Writing a little every day is the best gift you can give yourself for long term success.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Write every day!
What are you reading now?
Taste: A Dystopian Vampire Romance by D.S. Murphy, C.N. Greer
What’s next for you as a writer?
I would like to continue writing for the rest of my life. I may try my hand at another genre that I enjoy reading, but I am happy with what I am doing right now.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and tons more.
