How did you get interested in writing?
I have been writing for as long as I can remember. I always loved creative writing and English was my favorite subject in school. I started writing short stories. Then I wrote my first full length book Awakening Desire. Which I did end up self-publishing in 2011. The re-released it in 2023 along with the sequels.

Who do you most admire?
My mom. She inspires me every day to be the best I can be. She is the strongest person I know.

What is your favorite book that you have written and why?
I have to say I have loved every book I have written. They each hold a special spot in my heart. But if I had to pick, I would say Awakening Desire. The reason is because it is my first baby. But also, it brings to life and adventures of the Alcuv family. I absolutely love that family.

What writer alive or dead would you like to visit with and why?
I would have to say Jane Austin. I would want to know what went through her mind when she was writing. I would also want to know what she thought about her books being so well known today.

What is your goal when it comes to your writing?
Since I self-publish at the moment. I have a book calendar I try to follow. It goes up to 2025. I have one new release in 04/2024. I am planning on releasing the 3rd installment to my Bloody Series around October of 2024.

Who are your favorite writers? Are there any who aren’t as widely known as they should be, whom you’d recommend in particular?
Dean Koonz and Heather Graham are my favorites that are widely known. I do recommend B. Benford. She has amazing talent. I would recommend her books.

What genres do you especially enjoy reading?
I generally like to read romantic suspense and horror.

Who is your favorite fictional hero or heroine?
That one is a tuff. I think it is a tie between Jane Eyre and Elizabeth Bennett.

What books and authors have impacted your writing career?
I would have to say Heather Graham, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Catherine Coulter.

What kind of reader were you as a child?
Honestly, I wasn’t much of a reader as a child. I had a learning disability throughout elementary and junior high. So reading was very hard for me. The first book I picked up was Phantoms by Dean Koontz. I read that when I graduated high school in ’95.
