Who was/is the biggest influence on you as a child and as an adult?
As a child, and as an adult, my mother was the biggest influence. She's a wonderful woman.
Who do you like to read? Any favorite book or authors?
I love reading paranormal romance/urban fantasy with humor. Authors like H.P. Mallory, Molly Harper, Dakota Cassidy, Nicole Peeler, or Linda Wisdom.
If you could write a book with any other author, living or dead, who would you choose and why?
Oh, that's a tough question. I'd say Margaret Mitchell because I love Gone With the Wind.
Do you have a certain place and time you like to write or are you more the write whenever, wherever the mood strikes type of writer?
I write after I eat. Ha-ha. I focus better when I have a full stomach. I eat about five small meals a day, so if I can, I write after I finish eating. Sometimes, it's not an option, but I'm more creative when I'm not hungry. I write in different locations. My dining room table, the bed, the patio, etc. I move around a lot.
When you need inspiration to write where do you usually find it?
I sometimes go to the park. My books feature spooky locations, so sometimes I'll visit those places. Abandoned homes, graveyards, etc.
How do you choose locations for your books?
I like writing about my home state of Kentucky, or other cities that I've visited and enjoyed. I love the South.
If you could go anywhere in the world to write your next book where would you choose and why?
Probably the beach. I'd love to sit and watch the waves.
How do you spend your downtime?
I enjoy decorating my home on a thrift store budget. Yard sales, and flea markets. Spending time with my family, and playing with my Chihuahua. Listening to music, and definitely reading.
You have to spend six months in seclusion. The only contact during this time is radio welfare checks twice a day. Shelter, basic food, drink and limited electricity are provided. What are the first 5 things do you choose to take with you?
That's a tough question. Would I ever be rescued? I'd say pen and paper, but if I'm there for very long, it would run out. With limited electricity, I guess my laptop wouldn't be a good idea. Definitely a few of my favorite books, like Gone With the Wind, Little Women, and A Summer Place. A hairbrush because I can't stand tangled hair. My toothbrush and toothpaste. Could my purse stuffed with everything including the kitchen sink count as one item?
Please tell us why you think we should read your books.
My books are a nice escape for a few hours from the boring stuff, like cleaning house, work, etc. There's only so much tedious stuff I can handle before I need a break, and I love reading books when I get the chance.
Please tell us about upcoming projects.
I have follow-ups for all of my series coming out over the next months and next year. Plus, I'm working on a new series, but it's super secret.
