Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I live in a small town just outside of Nashville, TN. I'm a huge hockey fan and love visiting Gatlinburg, TN. I've written 19 books and working on a few more. I like to write books in a series. All of them can be read as stand-alone though. I do have one that is not in a series, Fit For A King. It's a temporary cowboy and he is one stubborn man.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
ASH The Beckett Brothers Book 2
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write about five books at one time. I'll be working on one and something will come to me about another book, so I go to that one and write. I do it all the time. I can't write just one at a time. Since they're in a series, I have to make sure I have the same things right in each book.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Janet Daily was a favorite of mine but I've always wanted to write. For as long as I can remember I wanted to write a book. When I won a writing contest in sixth grade, I knew that one day, I'd write a novel. Who knew I'd have so many out right now?
What are you working on now?
I'm working on the second book in The Callahans. A Cowboy's Heart. It's about Devin Callahan. Another sexy cowboy who falls for a woman eight years older than he is.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I have a wonderful PA. She posts my books on all social media. I also have a small magazine that I put out for authors to advertise their books and it's free. I think it's important for authors to help each other. This isn't a competition, we need to be good to one another.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Oh yes! Get an editor. Don't think you can do it yourself because you can't. It doesn't matter how well you think you know grammar, you'll learn you don't know as much as you think you do. I thought I knew all about grammar because I loved English, but once I got with my editor, who is an English Major, I was shocked that I didn't know what I thought I knew. Sentence structuring was foreign to me. That's the best advice I can give other than get with other authors who will help you if you need it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
I'd have to say when my husband told me to quit whining about wanting to write and just do it. I think that's the smartest thing he's ever said to me!
What are you reading now?
I just finished reading a book by Leslie Scott. She's a friend of mine and I love her work. Other than that, do my own books count? I just finished reading over one of my books that is way off in the future, but I wanted to go over it…again.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Books, books, and more books. I have 19 out right now but I have 10 more coming. Four more in The Men of Clifton, MT series. One more in The Bad Boys of Dry River, WY series. Two more in The Callahans series and three more in The Beckett Brothers series.
What is your favorite book of all time?
A real tear-jerker, Death Be Not Proud by John Gunther. It's a story from a father writing about his son dying from a brain tumor at the age of 17. I had to read it in high school and it stuck with me. I don't think it's even available in ebook.
