Current Release: Fire Baptized

Describe your current release in two sentences?

Lanore is a college supernatural girl who stumbles on a murder and catches the killer's attention. With the assistance of her ex-boyfriend and new mysterious friend, she searches for the killer before he finds her.

What was your childhood ambition?

I always wanted to be a singer. Most of my childhood was spent in the bathroom mirror singing with a hair brush. I thank my family for putting up with that all those years.

Please describe your writing environment.

I write everywhere. I'm a fulltime EOS specialist, part-time law student, wife, and mother of three little kids. I carry a notebook with me wherever I go, and write as much as I can whenver I have a few minutes. Alot of my writing is done on the Miami Metrorail, during my morning and evening commutes. My next popular spot is in the bathroom. I put the kids in a big bubble bath with lots of toys, sit by the tub, and get a good thirty minutes of writing time. I also tend to be soaken wet, but that's life.

What are you working on?

I have three shows that sit in my favorite spot. They are Dexter, Vampire Diaries, and The Secret Circle. These are my must-see shows during the week.

What career fields have you worked in?

I've worked all over the place. I spent six years in the US Navy as a Persian-Farsi linguist. I did nude modeling for Ringling Art School in florida. I have even done telemarketing and emergency phone support at a animal shelter.

Where do you want to travel?

France! I am a Foodie! Nothing would make me happier than to sample high-end french cuisine right in France.

If you had to choose one person to have dinner with, who would it be? And why?

Salvadore Dali! He was a mad man genius. I love his art.

If you could live in a world created by an author, which book / world would you jump into?

I would love to live in Kim Harrison's Hollows world! Her urban fantasy universe is so well-imagined and creative. Her books inspired me to write.

I just want to send thanks to Night Owl Reviews for giving me the opportunity to do the interview and to everybody who took the time to read this.
