Can you tell us where you are from?
I am from Los Angeles, California, but I grew up in Tennessee. I also lived in New York City for a few years to attend NYU. I guess you could say I’ve been around. 
When and why did you begin writing?    
I have been writing all of my life, actually. Even when I was a little girl, I used to love to make up stories and write them down. I was obsessed with the Judy Blume books – what little girl of the 70’s was not? One day I thought to myself, “I can do that….” So I started writing some short stories, ghost stories, stories about kids – it just snowballed after that. Writing is just a passion one is born with. I am constantly writing stories in my head. I guess that either makes me a fiction author or a loony!

What inspired you to write your first book?

“Weekends” was my first book, and that is a romance suspense set at a luxurious beach hotel in California. Jackie Collins is another author who I just adore. She is excellent at what she does! So, I became inspired to write something suspenseful and romantic that takes place at this gorgeous, sexy location. So, I wrote the first twenty-two pages on a lark just for fun on an old rickety typewriter many years ago. I stuffed them into a drawer and forgot all about them. Then, when I got married and moved in with my husband, he found them in an old box. He asked me what it was and I said “oh…nothing…just me fooling around…” or something like that. Then I got pregnant with my daughter and had plenty of time on my hands, so I decided to put those twenty-two pages on my computer for the heck of it, then I kept on writing it, and kept on writing it, until I have a completed novel. So, I sent out query letters, got a book deal, and the rest is history!

Do you have a specific writing style?

Not really, I just let my characters tell me what they want to do. Not sure what that style is called, but that is how I write. I just get very involved with my characters on a personal level, and they lead the way. I just type.

What is your favorite genre to write in?
I consider myself a multi-genre author. I don’t like the term genre. I just like telling stories. I love romance, erotica and thrillers.
