Tell us about things you enjoy — what you do for fun or personal
satisfaction besides writing?
I love to sing and go to karaoke any chance I get. I also have a
karaoke app on my phone
I love reading and can get easily lost in a book for hours, not
hearing anything that’s going on around me
I do yoga and tai chi – they make me strong, flexible and happy
What is the thing you struggle with the most while writing? And
how do you defeat it?
Getting distracted by the social media and household chores. To
combat these, I go to the library where all I do is write, turn off the wifi on
my computer and put my phone on airplane mode. I also remind myself that if I
feel like procrastinating that means I’m dealing with fear and there should be
no fear in writing.
What are your future projects?
I’m about to release my vampire romance novel “Love Me or Bite
Me” and I began to write second installment in my YA series, the Sleepwalker
Chronicles. This year I’m also planning to write and publish 2nd
book in the Gifted by the Moon series and 2nd book in the Love Me or
Bite me series. In 2019 all 3 series will get complete with the 3rd
book in each.
What is the “message” of your writing?
The message in my books is the message of empowerment. I want
young women to find their voice, their strength, their light and then shine it
onto others. As much as my books are about romance, my heroines are no damsels
in distress. They are strong and can take care of themselves. Their men are
proud to be by their sides.
Are your characters/stories/scenes, etc. based on anything in
Since my books are all in a paranormal realm, the characters in
them are all made up, but I do get influenced by the character traits of people
around me and some of the experiences from my own life. I do like for my
stories to take place in real places, so far I have “visited” Sweet Home, Oregon,
Canadian Rockies, Malibu, California, Quito, Ecuador, Denver, Colorado and
Have you done anything writing-related, besides actually writing
your books, that seemed to get a lot of positive response? Something that
I have done some fun stuff related to the world of writing and
books in the past few years. I have attended several writers’ conferences, been
part of a writing group, participated in NaNoWriMo and also shared a booth at
the WonderCon in Anaheim where I got to talk to readers and share my book. At
the last conference I got to participate in a late-night critique circle led by
my editor, Robert Yehling, and it was lot of fun interacting with other
authors, giving them perspective on their work and cheering them on.
