Just for fun–
What is your favourite drink? Arnold Palmer – Tea and Lemonade
Are you a cat or dog person? Dog – have a small terrior.
Love or lust? Both, One helps grow the other in my book.
If you could spend the day with any famous author, who would it be? And, why? Mark Twain – love the way he looked at life.
Do you laugh at your own jokes?
Yes, because no one in my household thinks I’m funny. Men have no sense of humor.
Are you fun to go on vacation with?
I like to think so. I enjoy seeing new things and love to travel.
If you came with a warning label, what would it say?
Proceed with caution, this woman is known to cry over sad movies and make you burn with her smoking, hot, sex scenes. She’s loyal, kind, and fun to snuggle with but hurt anyone she loves and she’ll cause you intense pain while relishing every moment of your suffering. Best to avoid if not looking for a lifetime commitment because friends are for life, lovers are forever, and enemies live in hell.
What inspires you to write?
Inspiration can come from many places. I find it in so many places with the people I meet, the shows I watch, the internet. I believe if you have a creative mind, you are always envisioning new and crazy things.
Most of my current stories come from a love of Texas. My Naked Bluff, Texas series allows me to step back in time and reveal history with a twist. I like exposing readers to the state I love so for me this is an inspiration to share fact about Texas along with a love story.
Tell us about your writing process.
It may sound fun but what inspired me to start writing was an author interview on a talk show. The author said she wrote in her pj’s. And even though, she wrote hot scenes she didn’t get excited.
I couldn’t imagine she was telling the truth. I mean if you want your readers to get hot how can you not get hot?
So I decide to give writing a hot book a shot. My first book Black Dragon Blood was to me a hot book. Then I just couldn’t stop. Writing, reading, there is a thrill in both.
I started out as a pants but have learned to be a outliner.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes, I talk to my characters. I spend time with them and carry on conversations with them. They are my friends and my enemies.
Which can make for a fun day, if they both want to give me help advice at the same time.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write, and don’t sweat the small stuff. We all struggle with different areas of writing but if you just allow your creative mind to flow. You can fix the rest later.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
My first books were with The Wild Rose Press. I still work with them, but I enjoy creating a few self-published books too.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It’s a wild ride that people are enjoying at the moment. There will be winners and losers. Who knows where the ride will take us.
