Could you tell us a little bit about
I love to write
romance stories that will pull the reader into my world to give them a mini
vacation from their own world. My characters will tease and taunt them, not
allowing the reader to put the book down until they finish! Besides
writing, I help hubby at the office but I do take my writing with me when I'm
there, too! LOL Our business is seasonal but lately our off season is becoming
way busier than it used to be - we are in the tax business and the IRS keeps
all of us hopping!
Describe your book ‘Never
Surrender’ in 30 words or less.
Taima, searches the future by slipping into the dreams of his soul mate. Kate
Bradach is pulled back in time by her soul mate she's not yet met.
What was the hardest part of writing
It takes a lot of
discipline to make yourself write on a daily basis which I find hard to do but
am working to get past this. One needs to write, and read, daily to keep their
own writing alive and fresh. My readers are asking for a sequel to Never
Surrender so I need to keep my butt in the chair! LOL
What books have had the greatest
influence on you?
I have to say it's
writers more than a single book or two. The great romance writers of the past
who pulled so much history, English and American, into their writing; they are
who made me fall in love with the historical periods I write in and strive to
achieve the same sense of place that they did in their books.
Briefly share with us what you do to
market your books?
I do all my own
marketing, since I do my own publishing and covers. This is very time consuming
but a part of my writer's life that I love doing! I spend most mornings posting
on blogs, other websites, placing ads on other sites, being visible on
FaceBook, Twitter, and many romance websites.
How do you spend your time when you are
If I'm not
writing, I'm marketing and find that one has to have a lot of self control to
stay off the internet so writing CAN take place! I love to work in my yard and
gardens as a de-stressor which is where I do a lot of plotting for books and scenes.
What are you working on next?
I will take up my
writing full time again come May and hope to have another book out in late
September - Whispers At Ghost Point - a contemporary that takes place in
Wilmington NC about a ghost in a lighthouse that gets renovated by my heroine.
Reincarnation and second chances at love are a common theme in my books and my
third is no exception. My characters are reincarnated from No Turning
