#WOTR21 #Review – Pam (The Mate Series #3) by: Teresa Gabelman

Pam (The Mate Series, #3)

With a past best left behind, forgetting was something Pam Roark could not seem to do. Nothing was more important than her mate, VC Warrior Duncan Roark, and her son, Daniel. But the circumstances surrounding Daniel and his remarkable abilities throws her back into nightmares she can’t escape.

During her journey to protect her son from those who would exploit him, Pam realizes it isn’t Daniel who needs help, but herself. With the help of her mate and son, a path leads her to the life she was meant to have—without the horrors.

The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I get just as excited when a Mate Series book comes out as a Protector Book. This time its Pam’s turn.

Pam has overcome so much in her time. However, watching her little boy grow up so fast Is proving to be the most difficult. What mother couldn’t sympathize with her. What most parent sees happen in 18 years Pam has seen Daniel go though in 7 years. Pam is trying to protect Daniel but Daniel doesn’t see it that way. Duncan is there for Pam but sees Daniel is more than a 7 year old boy.

I enjoyed seeing Duncan and Pam’s relationship grow but felt this was just as much Daniel’s book as Pam’s. I like how the story moved forward and opened up more of the story line for the Protector Series.

I like the way the story line is going and that we will get to learn more about Raven and Charger next.

Teresa Gabelman is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the ‘Protectors Series’. When not writing about sexy alpha vampires and the women who drive them crazy she can be found on a lake with a fishing pole/Kindle, at a MMA event or spending a fun evening with family.

Being a full-time writer has allowed Teresa to connect more with readers which is what she loves most about writing. If you find the time she would love to hear from you!

#WOTR21 #AuthorSpotlight – R. K. Gleason

R.K. Gleason

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

R.K. Gleason – I’m married to one of the coolest people I’ve ever met and she is the one who encouraged me to write. I published my firs book in 2015 and at the time of writing this, I have 12 books in my library. I never intended or aspired to be an author and I always just thought everyone had an imagination as vivid (or corrupt) as mine. It wasn’t until I was 53 years old I realized that wasn’t the case and not everyone had their own movies playing in their heads all day. I rationalized it was what made me a consummate liar but never equated it to being an author. That was 12 or more books ago and just take a look at the twisted nonsense I’ve put out since then. I never started any this for the money and on the extremely rare occasions when someone recognizes me, it always makes me nervous. Mostly because the first thing that pops into my head is the person is with law enforcement.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

I guess it the first one, or maybe the ones that follow. Hell! I have no idea. They’re all fucking hard. What I can say is writing the follow ups are usually more familiar but that doesn’t always make it easier. Some of my returning characters are assholes and unpleasant to be around. Sort of like family members and accepting the good with the bad. I seldom like the things my characters say or do but I still love them all. Perhaps I enjoy spending time with the villains the most and especially when they didn’t start out that way. Heroes are easy but villains, those fuckers are complex! For me, the best part of starting new books, is it’s like meeting a whole new group of people you haven’t learned to distrust yet.

What comes first? The plot or characters

This is like the age old chicken or egg question, so settle back and let this one sink in. The egg had to come first and here’s why. You have to have an egg to hatch a chicken. Meaning, the chicken had to come from an egg, because it’s the truth and you know it. Hatching from an egg is part of what makes it a chicken! But that fucking egg could have come from anywhere. A penguin could have laid the thing! Or an ostrich. Hell, the egg could have come from an alligator or a snake. But where ever it squeezed its way out of, there was a chicken inside. As far as plot or character goes, it depends on how the movie starts.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

David Wong, but meeting your idols doesn’t always work out as you’d hope. I learned that lesson with Tom Savini.

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

What are your feelings on the movie version of John Dies at the End? Have you aver seen a shadow man? Who really wrote the lyrics to Camel Holocaust?

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.

The blurb, because it’s the longest out of the three choices.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Traveling to Belfast with my wife for a book signing at the Titanic museum. We spent my birthday walking around the city and ended up miles away at a museum we had never heard of or planned on visiting.

What is your definition of success?

I think success is to be utterly happy and I think I’ve already made it. This pandemic has understandably been very difficult for people. We’ve been fortunate enough to have jobs that allowed us to work from home since this all began. This means I’ve been able to spend every day with my best friend and we never seem to get tired of each other’s company. If that’s not the true meaning of success, I’m not sure what else there could be. Sure, I’d like to be wealthy, but only so we could do more things together. Fame has its appeal for some, but I’m a little socially awkward and have a gift for saying or doing the exactly wrong thing at the worst time, and being a celebrity drives people to be on the watch for those things. Nope, No thanks. Although, maybe sleeping in might be nice.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

Oh Dreamer! OH Freaky!  I admit I was kinda curious about Freaky AKA Christopher and how he got his name.  I too figured with the group of guys he found his brotherhood with it had to be a sex thing.  LOL  I mean the Steels aren’t exactly the purest of men.

We meet Dreamer and she isn’t living but surviving day to day with an abusive dick named Clive.  Luckily Dell finds her at an art show and changes her life for the better.  After rescuing her and talking to Montana where she was hoping to hook her up with The Hard Road through Reds connections, she is staying to see life without abuse.  She is staying to see what she wants in life when she crosses paths with a hard-working member of the Steels.

Freaky is always good for a laugh.  He is a stressed-out mess planning Hack’s bachelor party while also seeing Hack stress out over marrying Preacher Girl.  Freaky can’t imagine having a life where you just want one woman to live your life with and plan your life around.  When he bumps into Dreamer he is mesmerized by her beauty and the way she looks at everything.

The couple have a strong connection everyone can see. He is fully in and wants to make her his but worries she will compare him to Clive.  Dreamer is worried about what being claimed really means.  She has never had freedom and now that she has it she is afraid to give it up.

The couple soon learn that when push comes to shove, they need the other to be complete.  When Clive comes back in the picture and a new MC group makes a play in town, Dreamer and Freaky rely on each other to make everything safe for the other again.

I totally enjoyed the side story of Hack and Preacher Girl’s wedding.  Those two are so perfect for each other.  But I loved getting “new commers” view of the family we love.  When new people see the love the couples have for each other, plus the commitment to the family has a whole, it makes you fall in love with all the characters again.

When Michel can suppress the voices in her head she can be found at a scouting event or cheering for her son in a variety of sports. She would like to thank her family for always being in her corner and especially her husband for supporting her every dream and never letting her give up.

#AuthorSpotlight – J.L. Baldwin

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself and which Twinsie do you know.

“J.L. Baldwin I know J.M. Walker! She’s one of my favorite humans EVER. A bit about me? Oh, goodness. Ummm…well, I’m a huge Disney nerd. I plan on moving to Florida soon to be closer to Disney World. That just about sums up my personality! haha! No, I’m just kidding. Well, other than writing, I love to read a lot. Not as much as I’d like to, because I have stories to write. 😉 I recently got into The Office so that’s my new obsession. #JimIsMine Other than that, I don’t really have much about me to talk about. I’m boring. LOL!”

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The first book. ALWAYS. If it’s a continuous storyline spread out among several books, that’s a big harder to tackle. But if they are standalone books, then that’s easier. I kind of already know how the characters are going to be from the first book so that kind of sets up the rest. The writing comes a lot faster. It’s that first book that makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes. haha

What comes first? The plot or characters?

It’s equal. Sometimes I develop the plot first, other times the characters. For the current series I’m writing, the plot for the first book kind of came first. I just made some minor changes then the characters started talking. I’ve never had a book where I know right off the bat how each main hero of the book is going to behave this early in the game. I’m about halfway through book 1, and the next two books, the heroes are so freaking loud, I can’t silence them.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

J.M. Walker! She’s one of many. She could write a cookbook, and I’d buy it. Others are, Colleen Hoover, K. Webster, etc. The list is endless.

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

“1. What’s your outlining process? 2. Do you always have characters in mind when you’re developing a plot? Or do they come afterwards? 3. Which one of your books do you see being made into a movie or TV show? ”

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series?

BLURB *hiss* The blurb writing is the WORST. Omg. I’m so glad there are blurb writers out there because even though I haven’t used one yet, I am glad to know they’re available if I need them. LOL. Oddly enough, I can’t write a story unless I have either a title or working title that can be changed later. I need something as a foundation.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Meeting readers. Seeing how excited they were is a feeling that will never grow old. I’ve always said I will never take being an author for granted, and seeing how excited people get over your books is the best feeling in the world.

What is your definition of success?

Success is being able to take a family vacation for the first time in years because you finally can afford it, or putting your kid through college so they don’t ruin their adult lives with student loans. Or buying a house with the money you’ve made doing something you love. Being successful to me means living comfortably. I don’t care about becoming rich. Okay, I lie. I’d love to be rich and own yachts and mansions, etc. But, if I’m able to live a comfortable life, pay my bills, put some money into savings, and not be stressing out over money every day like I am right now, that’s what being successful means to me.

#WOTR21 #MC – Cream, Steel MC Montana Chapter book #6 by Michel Prince and Wren McCabe

In book six of the Steel MC Montana Charter: From the first moment Sawyer Castle laid eyes on Annie Morrison he was lust struck. For over a year, the man nicknamed ‘Bounty’ for his ability to pick up women quick and en masse, could only get a smile or laugh from the woman. But a rescue gone wrong has Annie stranded with a dying woman and now, the woman he calls Cream is calling the Steel MC for a bail out.

There aren’t many things Annie cares for in her life. Never being stagnant, open spaces and her bike Peaches. When her baby gets hit and needs a repair, she’s stuck in Turnabout Creek with the Men of the Steel MC. Only her lifestyle demands constant movement and she has a delivery to make. When the young, handsome Bounty offers his services the man she’s been trying to avoid is now having her ride bitch.

With a late delivery, her pseudo bosses send a message that reverberates through the Club and soon has them questioning her activities outside of the domestic abuse rescue program. With another delivery sitting as a ticking timebomb in the compound the Steels will need to determine if Bounty’s Sweet Cream has dangers beyond her curves. Or if they will need to step in and save the woman Bounty wants to claim as his own and giving Cream a family unafraid of the demons that haunt her.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

So I gotta say Bounty had me going HRMMMMM.  I kinda expected him and Annie AKA Cream to get together after seeing his interaction with her in an earlier book.  I gotta say the story line was amazing.  I mean I was wondering her deal and why she was a bit reserved with her interactions plus the convo she has with Lil Bit made me say HRMMM…what is her story?  What is her baggage?  Ya’ll I was not prepared for the amazing twist of her story at all.

Bounty is a flirt.  His back story was pretty interesting as well.  I mean not many people grow up in a brothel and have happy and fond memories let alone zero resentment toward his mom for the life she desired.  He found his place with the MC but had been a bit of a roaming heart until that point.  He and Annie are very similar in the roaming lifestyle.

Cream does everything she can to push Bounty away but slowly he melts that icy exterior she has.  While he is melting that wall of ice, he starts to realize this woman is more then even he realized.  The couple do a great job dancing around the tension but when Bounty is helping Cream with her mom…..I was *ALMOST* turning in my Baldy cut for a Bounty one.

I loved the creative plot of the story and what they did to make Cream’s story so imaginative and way outside the normal “box”.  I was so happy with the new additions to the Steel MC Charter in this book and my Baldy cut is fully back in place.  The changes we are seeing in the “Steel Family” is outstanding and the last line of the book…..man, I can’t wait for more!!!

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Love family, reading, writing, meeting book peeps and my animals. Sums me up pretty well.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

Definitely the books that follow the first one in a series. The longer the series the harder it gets for me and yet, it’s me who makes it hard by adding more and more characters. LOL!

What comes first? The plot or characters

Definitely characters for me. The plot goes on as a I write. I’m not a plotter at all. I have an idea of how the story will go and end. Tried plotting but the characters don’t like it and change the plot as they laugh at me for trying. So, yeah, I gave up on plotting.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Sherrilyn Kenyon

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

What is Acheron’s address? What is Acheron’s phone number? Yep, that’s pretty much it. If you have read Acheron then you will know why I want this important information….but remember….he’s mind. 😉

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.

The blurb which is from hell.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Meeting so many amazing people who love books as much as I do!

Twinsie Tenise’s top 5 from July- December 2020

It’s that time of year again, where us Twinsie’s go through our reading lists from the past 6 months and find our TOP 5 reads. It’s never an easy process, especially when I’ve read so many amazing books since July but I managed to narrow it down 5. Okay! There are 6 books here buuut I’m counting the duet as 1 since both books have to be read to get the entire story.
So, without further ado, here are my Top 5 reads from July – December 2020…

Power Struggle by: A.D. Ellis

Jamison is good at everything he does and he’s never met a challenge he could resist.
Paul keeps his life in order with a tight grip on power and control.
Due to circumstances beyond their control, Jamison and Paul find themselves forced together and their jobs on the line. Will Paul’s insistence on holding onto all the power be what keeps them apart? Or will their long history and undeniable attraction be enough to shake the grasp Paul has on his control?
**Power Struggle is a steamy M/M, age-gap, forced proximity romance set in a small town. A twenty-year history, rival schools and jobs, and a hotel with only one bed make for a hot and heavy, sweet and sexy, HEA-guaranteed love story.**

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Being Us by: JM Walker (The Next a Generation book 4)

Tanner-
She was beautiful.
Loved.
Strong.
After hiding away for six months with just my dog to keep me company, I was forced out of the shadows only to end up in the arms of an enemy.
Beatrix Lister saved my life. I had been taking care of myself for so long, I didn’t know how to ask for help, but she refused to go down without a fight.
She was warm where I was frigid.
She was kind and caring where I was a cold-blooded monster.
I did things to survive.
I battled the evils of the world to live.
I didn’t deserve her heart but fell in love with her anyway.
As much as I wanted to be with her, I needed answers and I would do anything to get them.
Even if it meant breaking the heart of the only woman I had ever loved.
~
-Bee-
He was lonely.
Intense.
Brave.
Tanner Horsch came into my life unexpectedly. He was like a tornado, ripping up everything in its path.
There was something about him that I craved.
His touch. His words. His need to survive.
But as we were getting to know each other, he still had walls up.
He refused to let me in knowing my family didn’t approve of him.
I refused to let him go.
After being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he escaped and eventually he ran right into my arms.
He was the villain of someone else’s story, but he was the hero of mine.
I just prayed that he could see that not all monsters are truly evil.
Before it was too late, and he gave himself to the enemy.
My family.

Power Struggle by: A.D. Ellis

Jamison and Paul are opposites in many ways but early on I had a feeling they may be perfect for each other. Definitely prepare yourself to read this book in one sitting- I couldn’t put it down- I loved these two men so much!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Being Us by: JM Walker (The Next a Generation book 4)

Tanner was a villain when we first met him. Or was he really? All I know is Tanner has redeemed himself in my book and I’ve forgiven him for all his past transgressions. This man is hella fine and so flipping good for Bee. These 2 completely complete each other. Their story was a smoking H-O-T slow burn!!! I loved every agonizingly loooong minute of it. The build up was deliciously slow and when they finally connected, it was FIRE! *fans self* Oh my!

I counted down the days for this release. It was definitely worth the wait. I am loving this Next Generation Series. These “kids” are always up to something and it makes for some amazing page turners, thats for sure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take Me Home by: A.D. Ellis
 

Marcus Kingley works for the family business. He’s content with his life that consists of lots of work and the occasional hookup with random men, for a night of no-strings-attached, meaningless sex.
He begins to question if he’s really been living when the family dr tells him he needs to take some time off. His health is suffering due to his rigorous work schedule. Marcus is told by his grandfather he must take some time off. He’s not exactly happy about this but he has no other choice.

Jordan Moore is a carpenter and farmer in a small town. He loves his small town life and would never dream of living anywhere else. He is resigned to being alone because his business that pays the bills and puts food on the table is way more important than everyone in town knowing his business!

When the men’s lives become intertwined, neither of them are prepared for what happens next.

A.d Ellis has once again wrote an absolutely amazing MM romance. Every couple she writes, I love, and Macus & Jordan were no different. I honestly cannot pick a favorite of these 2. They each had their own little quirks that made me fall in love with them and their story.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vanishing Act (Survivors Duet book 1) by Heather D’Agostino

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Too much information will ruin this book for others and I do NOT want to do that.

I was addicted to Vanishing Act from the first word. It was a fascinating page turner that kept my rapt attention until the final word. I NEEDED the next book like YESTERDAY! I seriously cannot wait to see how this story plays out. I’m completely invested and feel like I will finally be able to move on with my life once I get brought up to speed on the lives of the characters at the center of my newest fictional world obsession.

I want to start by saying if you have not read Vanishing Act- book 1 in the duet- its a MUST before starting this book.

Enduring Act picks up right where book one left off. Vanishing Act left me saying what the… what?!? Then I finished Enduring act over a week ago and my mind is still reeling. The duet was a complete mind cluck! *wink wink*

I don’t want to go into detail about this book because it would ruin the experience for others. But I will say that the storyline is very unique and the twisted tale the author has woven had me enraptured until the very last word. If you love a book that sucks you in and keeps you up well into the night because answers are more important than sleep– then this duet is one you are definitely going to want to read.

Insurgent (Bones book 2) by: Paige P Horne

Book 2 in the bones trilogy came with new surprises. 1 of them being that this is a trilogy. I have no idea why I thought it was a duet. Thats what I get for not paying attention. I was both sad I didn’t get all the answers before the end and happy that there would be another book because I’m not ready for the series to end. Yeah, I know, I’m crazy like that.

Insurgent picks up where Genesis left off. You MUST read Genesis first if you want to understand what is going on.
Bones and Bexley are being held captive. Its been over a month. Bones has FINALLY figured out WHO is holding them and WHY. I just wonder if Bones will be able to save them from the madman before its too late.

I love Bones and Bexley and I really hope they get a happy ending. Since they first met, they have not had an easy- sunshine and roses- relationship. Oh no! Its been full of broken promises, heartache, and lies. One would think there is no coming back from that, but I’m staying optimistic and holding out hope for an HEA. They have been stuck together for over a month. They have had no choice but to face their past. If they make it out of this alive, will they end up together or continue on without one another? Well, I know what I hope happens. No idea if Paige is on the same page though.

#WOTR21 #MC – Free, Steel MC Charter Book 5 by Michel Prince and Wren McCabe

Michel Prince is the attending author.

Free (Steel MC Montana Charter #5)

Duke Weston rode out of Turnabout Creek on a wave of cheers and well wishes as a hometown hero. Nicknamed Hollywood when he returned from LA to help his wayward nephew from being pulled into the Road Killers and the drug culture they’ve cultivated. The LAPD SWAT member joined up with the Steel MC Montana Charter only to discover he couldn’t commute and be part of the club. With life-altering decisions needing to be made, can Hollywood find his way home and help take down the Road Killers? Or will he be drawn back to the big city where there are no demands on him once he clocks out?

Fiona “Free” Anderson was rescued by the Steel MC’s Prez and VP. What everyone thought would be a few days layover, then a relocation, turned into more than a year. Dancing at the Roadside Bar, Free’s stayed on the edges of the club. Some believe it’s because of her past connection with the Road Killers and that she’s holding back secrets. Only Free knows why she fears to make a connection and never truly invests in anything past the next moment. Has she overstayed her welcome with the club? Or has she finally found a place to call home?

With Hollywood’s nephew a year from graduation, uprooting his life in LA needs to be about more than family obligations. A woman, beautiful, but damaged, might be exactly the hook to bring him back permanently. Only her past keeps resurfacing, and Hollywood wonders if it’s because she never let it go, or that things in her past refuse to take no for an answer?

Time, trust, and loyalty to the Steel MC may be Free and Hollywood’s only answer to a lifetime together.

Warning: Adult 18+. Possible triggers.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this book.

*Grumble and opens book* Free is a snatch who doesn’t deserve a book.

*Wipes tear and closes book* DAMN IT.  I was so wrong about her and now I feel bad.

Yes friends to say I was not thrilled to read a book about Free is an understatement.  I mean Hollywood is a good guy but can you really redeem such a horrible person?  Welp, Michel and Wren made me a believer in redemption.  I mean I even messaged Michel to say LAWD I feel bad for not liking her.

Free/Fiona is one heck of a complex character.  She has never in her entire life been given any breaks or shown any kindness in her very short life.  Sex was what she knew and was how she got anything from kindness to breaks from men.  Being saved by the Steel MC was the only kindness she has been given without any string attached.  Yes she was a lost soul who everyone snickered about behind her back and she KNEW what they said.  I can’t imagine have no one in your corner or feeling like having no one in her corner.  Little did she know she does have a group of people AKA Red, Roadkill, Hack, and Hollywood who do see her and want the best for her.

Hollywood has been in and out of the Steel and finally is all in.  He has been fascinated by Free but finally starts to dig into her when he finds her after a very low point in her life.  He finds himself drawn to her and all her baggage.  He doesn’t care what the history is with her as long as she is willing to open her heart to a future with him.

This book we get A LOT of new information.  We finally find out who the Road Killers President is.  We also meet Dallas and a new prospect for the Steels names Mountain.  We finally get to meet the newest baby Steel and I was so loving the birthing scenes with Red and the guys at Red’s house.  These guys are alpha but also a mess when they cant help their women.

I have to stay I loved the scenes with the women and how they accepted Free into the fold of women even when she did see her acceptance in their eyes.  But I cant wait to see more from Free and Hollywood. I cant wait to see what happens with them going forward just like the rest of the couples in the series.

Michel Prince is an author who graduated with a bachelor degree in History and Political Science. Michel writes young adult and adult paranormal romance as well as contemporary romance.

With characters yelling “It’s my turn damn it!!!” She tries to explain to them that alas, she can only type a hundred and twenty words a minute and they will have wait their turn. She knows eventually they find their way out of her head and to her fingertips and she looks forward to sharing them with you.

When Michel can suppress the voices in her head she can be found at a scouting event or cheering for her son in a variety of sports. She would like to thank her family for always being in her corner and especially her husband for supporting her every dream and never letting her give up.

Michel is a member of RWA Pro and Midwest Fiction Writers. In 2013 she was awarded Elite Status with Rebel Ink Press. She lives in the Twin Cities with her husband, son, and cat.

#AuthorSpotlight – Quell T. Fox

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself and which Twinsie do you know.

Quell T. Fox. I am an indie author. I write reverse harem, both paranormal and contemporary. I currently have 9 books published. I don’t think I know either (sorry!) a fellow author shared this link.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The first book in the series for sure! Trying to get everything in order is the hardest for me. Once I have that first book down, the rest flows because characters and plot are mostly developed at that point.

What comes first? The plot or characters?

Characters always speak to me first. Plot takes me some time to get down.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Probably KV Rose. My favorite series is by her. Also a huge fan of J Bree.

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

What inspired the darkness? How long does it take you to plot out? Who do you go to for talking out ideas?

What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series?

Blurb, blurb, blurb. Did I say blurb? They are my enemy. I struggle so hard! It’s almost embarrassing.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

I love each and every fan that reaches out to me to talk about my books. Those are definitely my favorite moments.

What is your definition of success?

Funny because I wrote a paper about this in 8th grade and won something for it. Had to read it in front of the entire school. It was not fun. But what I said then was that “success is being happy in what you choose to do,” and I still believe that. It’s different for everyone, but happiness is the goal in life. To me, that is success.
