Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I was born and raised in Newport, RI and now live on the Space Coast of Florida. It's a hop, skip, and jump from Disney which is my favorite escape. Like many authors I started at a young age, creating children's stories to entertain my younger brother, then carried those stories on to my own children. With the love of reading everything I could get my hands on, she started writing historical fiction, non-fiction, time travel, and children's preschool/first reader books.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My most recent book is a non-fiction titled. Be More Successful with Marketing and AdvertiZING. I've been doing marketing and advertising for Affaire de Coeur magazine and have always been willing to let authors and publishers pick my brain. I decided to take all their questions and write the guide book in order to help all authors.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
No, I'm a boring writer. I sit, I write, no quirks.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I absolutely love historical fiction, paranormal, and science fiction. There are too many authors to mention.
What are you working on now?
I'm writing a time travel book about a young man and woman who are trying to find a serial killer.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Constant promotion, interaction, and never putting my eggs in just one basket. I take advantage of every opportunity and tool available. I also have no issues with helping and promoting other authors.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Oh, goodness, yes. So many things to say. One, read my Be More Successful book. Two, don't give up. It's hard but it's so worth it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
You write to sell your books and stories. Listen to your readers. They will help you improve your craft better than anyone out there.

What’s next for you as a writer?
