When did you start writing?
about sixth grade. It was a vampire story about a woman on a farm whose husband
had been turned and she was trying to protect her child. I still have that old
What makes your stories unique?
root cause of why a character acts the way they do. Who they are. And not
everything is always pretty. We humans are a complex lot, filled with gritty
emotions and sometimes they boil up to the surface.
Is there a common thread that runs
through your books?
themselves is a central theme in my books. It could be escaping their past,
discovering their strength and finding out they are worth being loved. Also
body image. Many of my heroines are curvy girls.
paranormal thread in them but some are erotic romance with a little kink to
spice things up. I span the rainbow with my work and have written traditional
m/f romance, f/f, and also a m/m short piece of fiction that will soon be made
into a novel. The characters speak and it gets noisy in here when I don’t
listen and give them some play space.
If money was of no concern, what
would you envision as your perfect lifestyle? (where would you live, what would
you do all day, etc.)
write full time. I would have a cook to handle the kitchen, a housekeeper/maid
to handle the housework and most of all I would have more time to take nightly
walks with my husband and puppies. I love my home in Texas and can’t imagine
living anywhere else.
Besides writing, what things are you
most passionate about?
rescue puppies and they are the light of my life.
Not limited to writing, what do you
believe to be some of your greatest accomplishments so far?

bookstore manager for over twenty years and one of my greatest joys is sharing
my love of reading with people I meet in the store every day.
