Have you always wanted to become an author?
Not necessarily. When I was younger I enjoyed writing poetry and songs. I used to sing them for my grandparents. They pretended to enjoy them. LOL! I actually started writing novels about 17 years ago. Before that, it was short stories and the like. I’ve been published now for 8 years.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
I’m writing two different series right now, both paranormal. One is grim reaper and the other is fallen angels. I’ve always had a love for the darker side of paranormal that involved vampires, shifters, demons and angels. There’s no real inspiration behind it other than my love for it.
What are you working on now?
Dead to the World series and Speed Dating with the Denizens of the Underworld series
Do you have any quirks while working?
I have to have music playing, a snack nearby, and a drink.
What are your hopes for the future?
To reach someone, to give them hope through one of my stories. I’ve had readers reach out that a story brought them out of a dark place before, and it completely touched me to hear that. That’s my goal, is to reach as many people as I can through my words.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Take your time and don’t rush. Find yourself a great editor, not someone who claims to love English. Also get a professional cover made. You can go indie, you don’t have to sign with a small press to get your books out there. Figure out what you want to write (contemporary, paranormal, historical, etc) and follow your dream. And never be scared to ask for help.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
I love each and every one of you! You are why I continue create adventures and different worlds for us to dive into.
