When she’s not writing, she can be found dancing, singing and cooking (usually all at the same time), and spending time with her family and friends. Her life, according to her husband, is a living version of the a Lucille Ball sitcom, but they wouldn’t change it for anything!
When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?
The others after in my opinion. You have to make sure all your timetables, characters, and scenes are in sync with each new book. It’s amazingly tedious.
What comes first? The plot or characters
Characters are always first for me. Those darn voices in my head!
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Lexi Blake!! Of course, I’d probably be so star struck, I’d likely giggle until I snort like a pig then pass out.
If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?
How do you maintain the freshness of each book in a series? Is your husband your guinea pig for figuring out scenes? (mine is…) Who is your favorite author?
What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.
The Blurb!!! Gah, I hate writing those. I’m always afraid my knowledge of the book is going to either give out too much (spoiler) or not enough (boring).
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
Wow! I’m not sure I could pick just one. I’m always amazed and humbled that people recognize me at events. Same goes with other authors. I’m like, “but I’m just me and you’re so well known. How do you know me?” lol
What is your definition of success?
Being happy with your life, no matter what you do, or what others think. It’s taken me quite a long time to come to the conclusion that if your heart is happy, then life is good.
