Chocolate. My family. Oh wait, maybe my family should be first? Water, but that’s a given really and coffee also seems essential.
Having a creative outlet in my life like writing and of course reading—that’s my escape and obsession.
What is your favorite television show?
It’s a tie between Modern Family and Big Bang Theory. The season ending for Big Bang Theory had everyone in my family groaning in frustration. Sheldon pulls out a ring and looks at it after being told by Amy that they should take a break. Great hook for sure, but now we have to wait until the season begins. I also like Mike and Molly and so many more I now want to list.
Like most people, we DVR a lot of shows. I like it this way and don’t really watch a lot of TV, even though it may now sound like I do.
I love movies. Romantic comedies are huge favorites and also action like Bourne Identity—yep, I know, it’s an old one, but that sums up the type of action movies I love. There are so many others…Pitch Perfect, August Rush, and Limitless to name a few.
What have you got coming soon for us to look out for?
Book 2 in the Five Fates Series (Layla’s story) and I’m so excited about it. Since that one is already written I’m in the process of working on another.
What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?
Karen Marie Moning, Kresley Cole, and Gena Showalter have influenced my writing.
There are tons out there. I have to say I’m very fortunate to have amazing critique partners whose input and experience I’m grateful for.
