What was your overall inspiration to write in the very beginning of your career?
I have been writing since high school. My earlier writing, however, was poetry. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your view point, those works were lost. In the beginning, it was just a way to release the thoughts in my head. I am better at writing what I think and feel, at times, than I am at giving voice to them.

How many paranormal books do you currently have out with titles please?
I only have one book currently released. It debuted October 10, 2015. Beyond the Veil of Whispered Dreams~The Veil Book 1.

Do you have a favorite paranormal book or movie/tv show?
I have too many favorite paranormal books to pick just one. As far a tv shows go, Xena. Xena is my hero. lol

If paranormal creatures really existed and you could choose to be any one of your choice what would you pick and why?
Faerie. Faeries kick but. They can do it all.

What do you find to be the most challenging thing about being an author?
Getting out of my own head and not listening to the self doubt that is a constant companion.

If you could co-write a brand new paranormal book with anyone of you’re choosing who would it be and why?
JR Ward, because she is just awesome!

Are you currently working on any new projects that you would like to share with us?
I am working on the follow-up book to Beyond the Veil of Whispered Dreams. It is called, The Veiled Path to Destiny~The Veil Book 2.

What is one of the biggest misconceptions that you think people have about authors in general?
That we sit around eating bon bons, writing books is easy, and we’re all living the high life off of our sales.

If money was no object and you could travel to any place in the world for your dream vacation where would you go and what would you do?
Scotland. I would tour the highlands, visit Culloden Field, let the energy that is Scotia sink into my bones, and look for Brigadoon. πŸ˜‰

Do you prefer online events or live events and what do you think the pros and cons of each are?
That’s a toughy. I enjoy both. The online events offer the fun without leaving my couch. The live events, however, offer that face to face interaction with the readers in a way the online events cannot. There is an energy at the live events that cannot be matched in an online event.
