Frequently Asked Questions
When did you start writing?
I’ve always dabbed with writing, but I didn’t set out to submit anything until 2006.
When did you publish your first book?
My first novel, Missing in Action, was accepted for publication in 2006. However, it was the third novel I wrote, Something More, which was the first to be released in early 2007.
Where do the ideas for your stories come from?
Everywhere. Absolutely everywhere. Have you ever seen something or heard something and wondered “what if”? Well, most of my stories started out just like that.
What’s your favorite genre to write in?
I waffle back and forth between contemporary and paranormal. While I love writing stories that could happen in real life, there’s also something special about penning tales that defy reality.
What do you like to read?
I read a lot of horror and romance. Those are really the only two genres that appeal to me, although there is the occasional nonfiction book thrown in for flavor.
What books were your favorite or most important to you when you were a child?
Mildred Taylor’s novels had a profound affect on me as a child. When I grew a little older, VC Andrews books did as well.
