When did you start writing and why?l&l cover

I started writing poetry when I was a teenager but I put it away after my first son was born. When my second son was born, I decided to try again since I had this story eating away at me. I haven’t stopped since.

If you are a parent how does being a parent affect your writing and writing habits? Or does it?

I’m blessed to be able to write full-time so I have free time during school hours.

 Who is your favorite author and why?

I could not even begin to narrow it down to only one. I do prefer historical romance to any other genre but could not write.it.

What do you hope to accomplish with your writing?

I’d love for this to always be my career and for readers to love my characters as much as I do.


Traditional or Self publishing? Why?

I don’t believe in being only one thing. I am both and it’s good to have control but it is equally good to have some help every now and again.

Talk about your journey into the wide world of publishing

I started out traditionally published but after realizing that I would have to do the same amount of work for less pay, I decided to try my hand at self-publishing. I have made every mistake there is to make twice but I don’t regret a minute of it.

Tell us about your book (s)

I have twenty-one titles available ranging from military romance, and paranormal romance, to eroticasinners

What inspired you to write these books (or in this genre)?

I’m a vivid dreamer and I write from my dreams.

Tell us why we should love or hate your main character?

I hope that everyone loves my sexy men and women who’ve lived imperfect lives but just like all of us they keep moving forward despite their challenges.
