Author Interview

What would you have done differently if you were the main character of your book?

~ I would have fought against the antagonist more and done so sooner.

What was your inspiration behind this book? 

~ Some of the material in this book had been previously published years ago. That was done when I was in a sci-fi phase and a publisher had an open submissions call. When I reworked the material and added new material, it turned into an urban fantasy about a computer game since I’ve been known to play WOW and other role playing games.

Why did you become a writer?

~ It was a calling I had when I was young.

Do you have a favorite author or authors?

~ KC Klein; Anne Rice; Stephen King; Clive Barker

Do you like to write your books in a continuing series? 

~ For this particular storyline, yes. 

If you could date any character from any book, who would it be and why?

~ JT. He only has a brief appearance in Open World but he’s a main character in the next story. He’s cute, young, and a romantic.
I have had a deep and abiding crush on Mr. Darcy since I was fifteen. 

What kinds of books do you like to read in your spare time?

~ I have an eclectic taste when it comes to my reading material. Right now I’m reading a spiritual book, a contemporary western romance by KC Klein, and a story by King.

As a reader and writer I think it is important to get to know your fans and make a connection with them as an author who takes the extra step to hear what their fans think and want in their continued writing is continued success and key to selling more books .Do you agree with that?

~ Yes. I love to hear from readers/fans & to find out what’s working and what isn’t.

Do you cry when writing sad scenes?

~ I’ve been known to. 
I try not to. Someone has to keep a clear head, if it’s not the characters than I suppose it has to be me. 

Did you have a Cover Designer?

~ The cover was done by Sour Cherry Designs & it’s one of my favorite by them.

Who is your fictional boyfriend or girlfriend crush? 

~ It’s a toss-up between Lestat and Marius.

If you were able to dine and have a one on one with your favorite writer/author who would it be?

~ Tough choice. But it’d be one of the authors I listed earlier. Though, I have met and talked to KC. I’ve also met Rice’s son, Christopher, who is an author as well…so I’m one step closer there. ;)

Do just re-read your favorite books? 

~ Yes, I’ve re-read a handful of the books in my library.

Do you ever get in a reading slump like your readers do? 

~ I feel like I’m in one now. I used to devour books. Now it seems to take me forever to get through one.

What is the funniest book you ever read?

~ Helen Fielding's novels: Bridget Jones's Diary, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason & Olivia Joules and The Overactive Imagination
