1. If you had a free day with no responsibilities and your only mission was to enjoy yourself, what would you do?
If my only mission is to enjoy myself, I’d spend the day with my best friend and her kiddos and/or my family. They are my biggest supporters and pick me up when life kicks me down. I love being with them and listening to them laugh and tell jokes, so we could really be doing anything and I enjoy myself. What I do love doing the most is trying something new or going to a place I haven’t seen before with them. I love experiencing new things with the people I hold dearest to my heart.
2. Describe your writing process.
I’m what they call a fly by the seat of your pants kind of writer. I always know the major plot points for my books, but a lot of times scenes will change as I’m writing them because the characters will take me in a different direction. I rather enjoy it as it feeds into the type of suspense I enjoy writing.
3. I will take you and any author you want out to dinner. Who will you invite and what will we talk about?
I would love an opportunity to sit down and have dinner with Rebecca Donovan. Her Breathing series not only inspired me to begin writing again, but it also struck on a very personal chord as well. I’d love to talk all things books with her and what inspired her to write Emma and Evan’s story. It’s such a beautiful story and I highly recommend it.
4. What is the best writing advice you ever received?
Never be afraid of criticism. Write without Fear. Edit without Mercy. Listen to everything your critique partner and beta readers advise you after they read. Know that not everyone who reads your books won’t always like them and that’s okay. No two people will ever read the read a book the same way.
5. You can only have five books on your bookshelf. What are they?
First, this is a very hard question. I truly can’t narrow it down to five since almost everything I read is in a series so I’ll supplement with my top five book series.
The Breathing Series – Rebecca Donovan
Hopeless/Losing Hope – Colleen Hoover
The Avoiding Series – K.A. Linde
Easy/Breakable – Tammara Webber
The Neighbor From Hell Series – R.L Mathewson
