What is your favorite thing about the romance genre?
I love HEAs. That no matter what happens, you can be in love and be happy with the person who is right for you.
Do you have any big plans or goals set for yourself for 2017?
I’m currently writing the Origin story to the Guardian series. It’s a YA paranormal trilogy.
What do you find to be the biggest benefit and downfall of self publishing?
The biggest benefit is control. I am a control freak and I love making the decisions about covers and story lines. The downfall is that having that control means that I’m doing it alone. No one else to blame if something doesn’t go right or I mess something up.
If you could choose to spend time in the world created by any romance novel what book would you choose and why?
Oh wow, this is an impossible question. I’d say anything by Nora Roberts. I love her characters.
Do you like HEAs or prefer something different and why?
Most of the time I prefer HEAs, but sometimes I like to read about the realism of relationships. How sometimes they don’t go the way we want them to. There are lessons in the mistakes we make in past relationships.
What do you think is one thing that makes you stand out from other authors in the same genre(s) that you write in?
Honestly, I have no idea. I just keep my head down and write the stories I want to read and put as much honesty and realism in them that I can.
If a new reader is seeing this what book of yours do you think they should start with?
I think they should start with Crossing the Line. It’s the first book in the Kismet Series. It’s about family, divorce, and finding love after.
What do you find to be the most rewarding thing about being an author?
People reading my work and actually liking it. I’m my biggest critic, but having people tell me they enjoyed my stories is the most rewarding thing ever.
What is one thing that you think new authors just starting out should know or be prepared for?
It takes a while to get a foothold in the reader community. Don’t give up if it doesn’t happen right away and everything you write isn’t crap. I promise.
If you had to choose only one genre to write in for the rest of your life what would you choose and why?
I love paranormal romance. I write YA paranormal and adult contemporary romance, so if I had to choose one, it would be paranormal romance. I’d just get the best of both worlds.
