Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself. Your background, education, your writing passion etc. ??
I am a native Californian who has traveled all over our great country. I am a Navy Veteran. I have always dabbled in writing but have only just turned it from a passion into a career. I am a homebody who prefers to hang out with my dogs rather than people. Not because I do not like people but because I am shy.
Q: We been hearing a lot about you & your books, so we noticed your starting to gain a lot of attention how does it feel?
It feels strange. I am usually a modest and reserved person, choosing to sit in a corner and people watch. I am not used to so much attention. Honestly, it is a little weird.
Q: Can you please tell our readers more about “The Last Bite”?
”The Last Bite” is a novel about a young woman that has been thrust into the supernatural world without realizing that it had ever even existed. She must navigate the politics and rules that govern her new world. Of course, we have a handsome hunter who wants to kill her and an old Vampire who wants nothing more than to use her.
Q: What has been one of the most exciting achievements of your career so far ?
So far it was when I received my first book in print. At that point, the whole idea of being a writer became tangible. It was almost like holding a real thing, this whole world and people that I had created had come to life. That has been my favorite moment so far.
Q: What’s your goal in life you want to achieve next?
A Pulitzer? A Nobel Peace Prize? A movie deal? I have no idea. I guess it would be to continue with writing. I enjoy story telling.
Q: What motivates you to do your best work as an Author?
The readers. I want those who do read my book to get the best experience from my words. I want them to feel immersed in the tales that I weave.
Q: What’s the reason behind writing this book “The Last Bite“?
I wrote “The Last Bite” because I wanted to take this idea that had been floating around in my mind for a few years and bring it to life. I honestly never thought that I would have it published. Luckily, I have a very persistent group of friends who all pushed me to publish it.
Q: Readers are excited about your upcoming book ‘ THE MISADVENTURES OF FINN ‘ , anything you want to say.. ?
I am so excited about “The Misadventures of Finn”. I do not mean to sound as if I am bragging but, I honestly believe that it is my best book yet. I have created a supernatural thriller that can be enjoyed by those who read Vampire and Werewolf novels as well as history buffs. I am an avid reader and I can say with all honesty that I would read “The Misadventures of Finn.”
Q: Everybody needs time out. What do you do in your free time?
When I do have free time I enjoy traveling, mainly to Texas to visit family. I have been known to spend entirely too many hours playing World of Warcraft, (yup, I am that person). I enjoy reading and crocheting. I am an excellent cook and have been known to spend days in the kitchen baking up strange and ugly yet oddly delicious desserts.
Q: Any suggestion for new writers?
Do not give up. I have said it before and will say it again, your first draft is going to be trash. A novel needs to be rewritten. Reworked. Make it perfect and then write it again. Ask others for feedback and try not to be too sensitive when you get constructive criticism. Yes, you have created something beautiful but as an author, we always think it is the best it is going to get. It can get better.
Q: How can people find you and follow you online?
You can find me on various social medias.
