Author Interview

Tell us about yourself?
I’m lucky enough to be a full time author right now. I also take care of my family and two very spoiled dogs. I love baking and taking pictures. Popcorn is my favorite snack and love anything sweet! I started writing in elementary school but didn’t get serious about it until 2015.

What genre do you write? Why?
I write YA fantasy and paranormal romance as well as adult contemporary, NA and paranormal romance

How does your normal day look like?
After finally getting up later than I planned, I start writing or editing. I try to do that most of the day while still doing boring things like laundry and cleaning. After dinner I try to read (that is when my hubby isn’t needing something (lol).

What books do you like to read?
All kinds of romance and YA.

Who is your favorite character you have created?
Alix. She was my first and I’ve loved seeing her evolve in the Nykara series.

Who are your top favorite authors?
Abbi Glines, Laurell K. Hamilton, Cassandra Clare

What do you have in the works right now?
I’m editing the fourth and final book in the Nykara series which will probably be out early in 2020.

What should we expect from you in the coming months?
I plan on writing the second book in the Bay State University series. After that I think it’s going to be the start of a shifter series by various Kingston Publishing authors. And I’m working on a couple of children’s books.

What would you like to say to your fans?
Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have no idea what it means to me that people like what I write. Becoming a published author was a dream come true and because of you I can keep doing it. Also, it’s crazy that I actually have fans!

Scorned is Now Available!

SCORNEDKara found out the hard way. Just because she did the right thing didn’t mean a god would give his blessing. Instead, it was the opposite when honoring agreements that grate against a god’s wishes.

Now, she is on the run from Odin and anyone following his commands, and she finds herself safe in the wastelands with the wild dragons, or so she thinks. Unless she can find a way to be accepted back into Valkyrie school and not be imprisoned, her future is in peril.
