Tell us a bit about yourself
I am married to my high school sweetheart and have two teenagers, a 10th grader and a freshman in college. By day, I teach middle school – scary stuff! – and by night, I spend time with family, write, volunteer at the animal shelter. I love coffee and animals.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
Yes and no. I have thought about, even wrote a story in 3rd grade and went to the Young Author’s Festival. But as I got older, it was all about becoming a teacher.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
One of my best friends in book world asked if I wanted to join a group of author’s to write about villain’s getting their happily ever after. I said yes! So did my usual co-author Kendall Oliver. She had to join me – I begged. LOL.
What are you working on now?
I am working on the edits for a book, Ligon, I started in August of 2018 and finished (the first draft anyway) in June of 2019. My editor and I have been working on it in between the novella I released in December and the novel I just finished for the Mischief Matchmaker Series. I plan to release Ligon in May!
Do you have any quirks while writing?
I don’t know. LOL. I can write almost anywhere. Around people. People talking to me. After every chapter, I have to put it through Grammarly and fix it. Then, I tend to work on the content edits I see for that chapter before moving on. I will bug my friends if a certain part is confusing. I also like to finish a book now before my editor or awesome beta reader Mamaw sees it so she gets the whole picture.
What are your hopes for the future?
Honestly, to be as well known as Harper, Quinn, or Stacy. I’m super proud of their accomplishments! They have done so much in a short time. It’s amazing.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
NEVER GIVE UP! I have wanted to quit so many times. My friends keep me going.
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
Thank you for reading my books. Good, Bad, or (hopefully not) Ugly!
