How do you feel about bacon? Cannot live without it. Seriously. It’s a staple of my diet.
Tell us a little about yourself.
The first time I hit publish, it was because my now husband told me he’d break up with me if I didn’t do it. Sam sure does know how to motivate me. We embrace life as an adventure, which is great since we’ve had so many. The biggest was the birth of our daughter, Kenna, sixteen weeks too soon. She weighed 9.6 ounces, making her the fourth smallest surviving preemie in the world. Still she’s amazing, my hero, and has taught me how to put life in perspective.
What’s under your bed?
Nothing. You should have asked me what’s in my nightstand. That’s way more interesting.
What comes first, plot or characters?
The plot. Every time. And then I try to figure out the characters.
Pantser, plotter, or hybrid? Tell us about your writing process.
I’d say that I have a loose plot when I start writing, then I get stuck and brainstorm any number of times until I finally finish the book.
Oddest thing on your desk?
A skywriter UFO that my husband just had to have. He can type a message into it and float it above me while I work. Yes, it’s like having one more kid.
What’s your most interesting writing quirk?
Hmm. I brainstorm each book with a different person. I don’t think I’ve ever used the same person twice.
What’s your favorite thing about the genre you write in?
I love romance. I love creating those moments, the feelings, and having it touch someone.
What is the hardest thing about being an author?
Building a social media presence. Part of me just wants to write books and stick them out there. I like hibernating. The other part of me adores when readers reach out. I love interacting and hearing from them.
What’s the easiest thing about being an author?
Seriously, the writing is the easy part. I really enjoy coming up with book ideas.
What do you wish someone had asked you for an interview question? Here’s your chance to get the soap box out!
Is there a theme, a platform for your writing? I always like to say I write books about happiness, hope, and love. So many of these stories are about second chances.
