Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
I have an alternate career as a sports writer, covering any sport, but my first love is IndyCar racing. I’m married to a wonderful, supportive husband, and we have three parrots and a dog. We’ve hosted foreign exchange students for many years and have been lucky enough to visit their home countries.
When and Why did you start to write?
I’ve written stories since I was very young, and I still find old notebooks with partial stories or ideas I’ve jotted down. I began to seriously pursue romance writing a few years ago when I was so fed up with my job at the time, I needed the escape of writing. Even though I kept working, I cut back my hours and dived head first into my projects.
What authors do you always read or suggest to others?
I’m a huge fan of Kat Martin. We both used to live in Bakersfield, CA, and I would see her at local signings. I also enjoy reading some kink, and for that, my favorites are Tamsen Parker and Tara Sue Me. Really, though, I just want a good story and will read just about anything.
What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?
It is much more painful than I thought, but I have so many other author friends who are helpful, supportive, and will hold my hand when I need it.
Since I still write for newspapers, the style is very different, and switching back and forth is a challenge.
What are you working on now?
I am nearly finished with Appearances which is an opposites story mixed with suspense. This book will be available at WOTR. Additionally, I am starting a sequel to Captured Hearts. The book was meant to be a stand alone, but several people are requesting more of the story. I have many notes and ideas in a notebook just waiting for me to begin.
When writing are you a pantser or plotter?
Complete pantser. Years of newspaper reporting makes me work better without a plans. Planning is usually a disaster for me.
