Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?


I have been in the entertainment field for most of my adult life in one form or another. I began as a singer/songwriter and hosted a satellite talent showcase in Alabama through a company called Fast Track To Fame.  We eventually moved out of Alabama and began hosting talent competitions across the United States for the same company.  After years on the road I began my family and decided I needed to do something that would allow me to spend more time at home with my family and began writing fiction.  I'm the mother of five wonderful children who are a source of great inspiration and love.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?


Time management was the hardest part in bringing my book to life.  As a mother of five, finding time outside my hectic schedule is always a challenge.


What books have had the greatest influence on you?


There is actually an amusing story behind this answer.  As a young girl my grandmother received Harlequin romances, the subscription that sent you four small romance books a month.  Of course I was not supposed to read these since I was only 8 or 9 at the time.  I would sneak these little romance books into my play tent and read every line.  I can’t remember the author’s names but I read every single one that came in the mail and wanted to be just like them when I grew up. Needless to say they left a huge impression on my young mind and I always expected prince charming to ride up on his white horse and sweep me off my feet one day.  As for authors that I enjoy today, I would have to say my two favourites are Charlaine Harris and JR Ward.


Briefly share with us what you do to market your book?


My main marketing is done via twitter.  Press releases are also a big help and setting up book signings so that you get the opportunity to get to know your readers. 


How do you spend your time when you are not writing?


When I'm not writing I'm usually with my family or promoting my book on the road.


What are you working on next?


Currently I'm working on the sequel to "A Night at Tears of Crimson" which I will release in June of 2012.
