What inspired you to start writing?
As a kid, I was on punishment a lot, which led to reading, drawing and writing to pass time.
How long have you been writing?
Since I was a preteen.
When did you start writing?
I feel like I keep answering the same question. LOL. As a preteen.
How do you develop your plot and characters?
I think about crazy things that could happen in life, or sometimes based on crazy things that have happened in real life to me or someone else, and then I put a twist on it.
How do you come up with the titles to your books?
Sometimes I come up with the title before I come up with the plot. I might have dreamed about it, heard a common phrase I can twist to fit a plot I’m thinking of, or whatever name will fit a book I have already begun to write.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Once I published my 2nd book in 2014 and realized I had actual reader “fans” of my work.
What is the most difficult part about writing for you?
Completing a book. I’ve become more critical of my writing with every book because I realize readers’ expectations of me now. It took me 10 years to publish my first book, so my putting out a book in a year or 2 is a feat in and of itself.
Are you working on anything at the present you would like to share with your readers about?
I’m working on the sequel to my most popular book, “What I’d Do for Love.” It’s slated for a release this year.
What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Watch movies, hang out with my husband, kids, family, and mess around on social media.
What did you want to be when you grow up?
I wanted to be a Veterinarian before I realized I would also have to see animals at their worst points of suffering, and sometimes put them to sleep.
