1. How did you get started writing?
Growing up, I was a voracious reader. It never occurred to me then to want to write. I was happy to enjoy the fruits of other people’s labors. In my later years, though, I found it harder and harder to find the kinds of stories that I wanted to read. I already had an easy aptitude for writing as a form of communication, so why not start telling my own stories and writing the kinds of things that I’d like to read?
2. If your friends were asked to describe you in one word, what would it be?
3. What is your favorite thing to do outside of writing?
4. What do you love most about the genre you write?
In fantasy and sci-fi, you can find whole new worlds to explore.
5. What do you want readers to take from your books?
A sense of time-well-spent. A shadow of regret that the story has come to an end. An appetite for more.
6. What made you decide to write in your current genre?
Fantasy and Sci-Fi were my first loves as a growing reader. I get a huge thrill out of creating whole new worlds of my own.
7. Tell us about your current release/or new release?
Moon Kissed Cat is a short story in the awesome Hellcats Anthology. It’s my first published work. I have novel-length projects in the works, but nothing close enough to completion to be considered a “new release” yet.
8. What’s the one piece of technology you can’t live without?
My desk-top computer.
9. Do you find it hard to kill off your characters?
Depends on the character!
10. How much of your characters are based on your traits or someone you know personally?
There’s probably some aspect of me in every character…either as I am, as I wish I were, or as I fear I could become.
11. What are you working on now? Can you share a teaser of it with our readers?
The project closest to completion features a werewolf and an mage-assassin….and they’re the good guys! It’s a save-the-world story filled with action, a chance at redemption, and a chance to discover love.
12. What do you do when a flash of inspiration hits you at an inopportune moment?
Pull out my phone or any scrap of paper I can find to write a note on. A lifetime of forgotten inspirations has made me an avid note-taker.
13. What keeps you going while writing?
14. Where can we find you on the internet?
