Tell us a bit about yourself
I am a former aspiring screenwriter who is a wife, mom to one son and avid reader. I have lived in southern America my whole life and some might say my accent borders on the ridiculous! I’m a trivia geek and my favorite spot to be at is the beach.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I’ve written in some form since I was six. My favorite thing as a child was making up creative stories, usually fantasy. High school was all about poetry and college screenwriting. Writing is my escape.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
Two things actually lead me to this book. I started reading reverse harem about a year ago, mainly bully. I was addicted but noticed it always took place mainly in high school setting. Being older I craved an older set of characters so I wasn’t Mrs. Robinson when I was crushing on the guys. Secondly I worked in corporate America for ten years in a more senior role towards the end. Women need more respect and acknowledgment. Less than five percent of women in our country are in an executive level position such as CEO or COO. My goal was to make a comment on this divide by establishing a FMC looking to be the head of a company. We need more women to be the boss.
What are you working on now?
My series is three parts so I am finishing the first book and rapidly heading into the next book.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
Yes I am completely OCD in so many ways. I need to be alone, in a silent and still environment. Yet I have an appointed playlist for each chapter I’m writing. I need sexy music when I write sexy, angst when I write angst and empowering when I write empowering. I’m also weird about making sure I have two beverages (usually bottle of water and cup of coffee) within reach.
What are your hopes for the future?
Truthfully I hope to be an author readers follow and get excited when they see a new release from. My main goal is to be well received and respected.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Never be afraid to reach out! I reached out before I started writing. This is such an amazing community to be apart of. Authors will help you, you will be taken into a group and you need only ask questions. Everyone is here to help. Develop a squad, your squad will be your best friends and lifelines. Also, ask! If you don’t understand how something works just ask. There are so many wonderful people to help. Do not be afraid to ask for help.
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
Yes, I love you all so much, none of this is possible without your support. You bring the joy everyday when I need it. I’m so immensely grateful for you to read what I write. You’re my heroes.
