Now on to the interview!

How long does it take you to write a book?

It depends on how long the story is. Generally a full-length 75-100K takes me two months to write the first draft. A short story takes about a week.

What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

I write/critique/read anywhere from 12-15 hours a day, seven days a week – all the time.

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

I get inspiration from many sources but generally I use other books (the Bible quite a bit) and music.

When did you write your first book and how old were you?

I completed my first novel in January. I was 29 for the 12th year in a row. 😉

How many books have you written? Two full-length novels and three short stories

Which is your favorite?
Whichever one I’m working on. The Pirate Princess is my strongest writing but I really enjoyed writing my short story Pinocchio Syndrome. I laughed so much writing that story. The Implanting is my first manuscript and it is my heart. It is my favorite.

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I wanted to be a soap opera actress. If that failed, I wanted to write them which is pretty much what I do now.

Which of your characters is your favorite?

My favorite character is the divinely inspired Petra, a blonde-haired, brown-eyed nobleman in the mystical land of Jastain. His Gift of Implanting includes diplomacy, animal speak, and the taming of wild beasts – which makes him the perfect match for the feral pirate, Charlee. He’s unassuming, lighthearted, and a man of exceptional quality and character. I call him my Mary Poppins “practically perfect in every way”, which oddly enough is what seems to get him into trouble. He was rejected by the heroine in The Implanting but finds his Happily Ever After in The Pirate Princess.

Tell us about your current release.

I have a current release with New Dawning International Bookfair, Pinocchio Syndrome. It’s a humorous erotic take on the Italian fairytale, kind of like Pinocchio meets the Sopranos.

Tell us about your next release.

My next release is a 1NS story titled One Knight in Brooklyn. It’s loosely based on Robin Hood. Sick of trying to find Mr. Right in a world of Mr. Right Now, Marianne seeks the services of Madame Eve to introduce her to a romantic knight who will sweep her off her feet. But what she gets is Robert, a crass car salesman from Brooklyn and a zany adventure in Sherwood Forest.

Thanks for sharing your time with me. Please leave a comment and let me know you stopped by.
