1. How did you get started writing?
I had the idea for my first story and it absolutely Would. Not. Go. Away. So eventually, I caved and started writing it. Then I couldn’t stop.
2. Out of all your books, which one is your favourite and why?
I like them all for different reasons. I like that people don’t often see the twists coming in my first series, but I love the humor in my second series. The characters almost write themselves.
3. If your friends were asked to describe you in one word, what would it be?
Most have said “funny” which is very nice. But I prefer to go with Craig Martelle’s suggestion; Stubbilicious. That’s me, the stubbilicious one in the corner.
4. What is your favorite thing to do outside of writing?
I love to visit art galleries. I like hot tubs, Indian food, and coffee.
5. What do you love most about the genre you write?
I love writing characters who have access to unusual abilities but who are mindful enough to not use them all the time.
6. What do you want readers to take from your books?
A sense of justice, empowerment, and good feels.
7. Describe yourself in 3 words.
Disorganized, distracted, chaotic.
8. What made you decide to write in your current genre?
It’s a genre I enjoy reading.
9. Tell us about your current release/or new release?
I’m currently working on book 4 in the Legacy of the Shadow’s Blood series, which I’m co-authoring with Michael Anderle. A witch is murdered, and an old enemy returns. This book reacquaints Lexi, the main character, with old friends, previously introduced in the short story prequel, The Fugitive Legacy.
10. What does your writing space look like?
Chaos. My desk is chaotic, my mind is chaotic, and my life is chaotic.
11. What’s the one piece of technology you can’t live without?
It’s difficult to call. Either my MacBook Pro or the Instant Pot. I could make a compelling case for both.
12. Do you find it hard to kill off your characters?
It depends on the character. If it’s someone good, I hate putting my other characters through that grief. But in my books, it’s open season on bad guys. I try to think of creative, gory but funny ways to kill them.
13. How much of your characters are based on your traits or someone you know personally?
The humor is usually mine but other traits are ones I aspire to, like bravery. I use friends’ names in my books but the personalities are usually nothing like them.
14. Is there one genre that you have not written in yet, but would love to try writing?
My first series edges on sci-fi (among a mish-mash of other genres) but I’d like to go further into that. I love reading crime fiction so I’d love to write one.
15. What’s next for you?
After book 4 comes book 5… and on. After this series, I’ve got another one I was working on and set aside, which I’d like to finish. I also plan to write more books for the faders series, my YA series.
