Who or what influences you when you write?
My mood, specifically. Sometimes, I use a song to influence what I'm writing.
Can you please give us a sneak peek at any of your upcoming books?
Absolutely! Coming May 16th is the first in a series with Twilight Fantasies Publications. From the Ashes is the story of Hannah Reed, a mortal in love with Will Caldwell, a pyreweld demon. Hannah and Will make a sexual commitment to one another only to have Will leave when another pyreweld-a female-passes through town.
Two years pass and Hannah is haunted by her unresolved feelings for Will. Just when she believes she is capable of entering into a new relationship with Michael Parker, Will returns to Jasper-alone. The pressure of Will's return and his eagerness to pick things up where they left off, as well as her confusion about her feelings toward Michael, causes Hannah to leave Jasper in the hopes of achieving some much needed mental clarity.
Please tell us what you have planned next?
I'm currently working on a series of shapeshifters short stories. After that, I'd love to get back to my alien/sci-fi romance and my Halloween-themed story.
What kind of research do you do for your books? Do you enjoy the research process?
I love the research process. Sometimes I lose myself in researching; I get overwhelmed when it's time to write.
Do deadlines help or hinder your muse?
Deadlines help. Otherwise, I go from project to project with no real guidance.
Do you outline your books or just start writing?
I just start writing. Even when I have an outline or synopsis, chances are my characters will take over the story. That's actually what I love the most about writing - when characters surprise me.
