Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I live in Louisiana with my husband and 3 kids. I published my first book in 2012 and have been writing full time since then. I have published 33 books so far.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is called Tipping the Scales. It is a shifter romance about a dragon shifter who is slowly going mad without his mate. I co-wrote it with Delphina Henley. We are both shifter fanatics.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Unusual like I have to be wearing my roller derby hoodie or have it nearby? Unusual like I can’t be wearing socks? Unusual like I can’t write during the day as much as the night? Unusual like the fan has to be on? Nope. Not me. I’m also not sarcastic at all.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
There are so many profound and amazing authors out there. One of them is Delphina Henley. Another of my favorites would be Mary Smith.
Mostly, my number one shifter author influence would be T.S. Joyce. Her books are beyond bingeable. I’m obsessed!
What are you working on now?
I have so many things in the works right now. There are six novels in my second-chance romance series with Elle Kimberley. Delphina Henley and I are writing the next book in our Mate Craze series. I have a new novel coming out from Kristie Cook’s publishing company under the Havenwood Falls series. Plus, in November, I have a contemporary romance coming out from Clean Teen Publishing called AnguiSH.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My readers are my best promo option. I wouldn’t be where I am or writing books without them. Telling someone about the books you love is the best promo in the world.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Read. Write. Read and read some more. I can’t write without reading. It is essential. Read in your genre. Read out of your genre. Read things that inspire you. Read things that you think you might hate. Read it all.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The best advice I’ve heard is to write what you want to read. Don’t go with the trends or with whatever is popular-those things will fade just like all trends. Write what calls to your heart.
What are you reading now?
I’m binging all things shifter.
What’s next for you as a writer?
So many things!
What is your favorite book of all time?
That’s impossible to pick! I do love Stephen King and Anne Rice and Neil Gaiman.
