OUaT: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am a rep by day, author by night. I write what I know. I love purses and anything with an expensive label.

OUaT: When did you first start writing and when did you finish your book?

Nine years ago and yes I finished all 300,000 words of it.

OUaT: How did you choose the genre you write in?

I like to write what I know so I chose contemporary. Sometimes I write paranormal but then I can make my own reality.

OUaT: Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?

Johanna Lindsay, she is just fun and I love that.

OUaT: Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your first book published?

Oh my, I dealt with having to learn the craft of writing, I dealt with rejection, and I dealt with having to get excess people out of my life.

OUaT: If you had to go back and do it all over, is there any aspect of your novel or getting it published that you would change?

I would have stayed true to my vision earlier.

OUaT: Can you tell us about your upcoming book?

Closure is a story about reclaimed lost love. What happens when you get a second chance.

Yes, Trifecta, a typical romance that just happens to have three people. Right now it is part of a box set.

OUaT: What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What as been the best compliment?

Toughest criticism was an edit from one of my publishers who ripped a few things apart I thought I had down pat. Best compliment was when a publisher came to me for my book.

I have the most amazing fans, I love you and thank you.
