Current Release: Edge of the Past
Describe your current release in two sentences?
When the past explodes into the present, what does it mean for Emily and Sergei's future?
What have you had to give up to pursue your writing career?
I've been very fortunate that I haven't had to give up anything. I still have my full-time job as a tax accountant, and I plan to continue writing as a side career. I like to think of writing as a hobby because if I think of it like a job, then it won't be as much fun!
What are you working on?
I'm currently working on the third book in the EDGE series, tentatively titled Fighting for the Edge. It will continue Emily and Sergei's story and also give Aubrey's story as they all prepare for the 2006 Olympics.
What is your ultimate writing goal?
My ultimate writing goal is to touch readers' hearts. I want readers to laugh, to cry, to desire to know my characters personally. Any time I hear from a reader that they had an emotional reaction to my books, it means so much to me!
Do you have a comfort food? What is it?
My comfort food is definitely chocolate. I have a huge sweet tooth.
Where is your favorite place to write?
My favorite place to write is bundled up under the covers with my laptop.
What career fields have you worked in?
I've worked only in tax accounting since I graduated from college. I love the company I work for and have some wonderful friends there.
What are your plans for the next year? Any books you are looking forward to?
I hope to release the third book in the EDGE series next year. I'm really looking forward to Stephanie Perkins' next release Isla and the Happily Ever After.
How was your road to publication?
I stalked my publisher Astraea Press for a few months when I first started working on my manuscript, and I was lucky enough to meet one of their authors online. She helped me with all my publishing questions, and after I submitted I only had to wait a month before I received my contract. It was one of the most exciting days of my life!
If you could time travel, where would you travel to and why?
I would travel back to the 1950's because I've always thought it was a fascinating decade, and I'd like to meet my grandfather who passed away before I was born.
Thank you so much to everyone who's supported me in my writing career! I love to hear from readers, so please don't hesitate to contact me anytime!
