Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Well I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Worked in customer service jobs most of my life, currently work in a call center for ATT in iphone tech.
I’ve been a bookaholic since I was ten. I’ve been involved online with writers ever since I first came online. At the time, I had web tv and the first thing I did was search for Jayne Ann Krentz and Diana Palmer.
I’ve been a reviewer, book promoter and author stalker, known for locking authors in a closet so they can write faster.
Started writing three years ago, while in a chat I was dared by a friend to write. You can either thank her or ask her what was she thinking. LOL Email me and I will tell you who.
Are you an Introvert or Extravert? How does this affect your work?
I’m an Introvert until you get to know me. Then I’m a bit of a smart ass. I think some of it comes through in my writing.
How do you make time to write?
I make time. I work full-time, so I write in between phone calls, during breaks and lunches and after I get home from work.
Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just to see where an idea takes you?
I couldn’t work to an outline to save my life. I just let the characters tell me their story.
How did you come up with the idea for your book, BELLA AND THE BEAST?
I had just finished Wendi and Tink when Beauty and the Beast was coming out. I thought what if?
Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?
I’ve done a few boxed sets.
I see you write Gay and Lesbian fiction. What do you think is the greatest misconception about LGBT Romance?
That it’s all erotica. It’s simply two or more people that find their way to each other.
What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Just write. I wish I could have started earlier.
Where can readers find you on the World Wide Web?
