Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today! What 5 things should readers know about you?
1. I’m a huge Jane Austen fan.
2. My characters are important to me. As I write, I develop a relationship with them and let them lead the story. I’m always surprised where they take me.
3. I have a full-time job plus a son, so writing time is hard to find. I write at night when everyone in the house is asleep.
4. 80s music is my inspiration when I sit down to write.
5. I’ve been writing since I was 8 years old and having published books is a dream come true.
Jane Austen fans unite! 🙂
Where did the inspiration for your book come from?
My entire series focuses on my characters finding themselves and overcoming difficulties. I like to put a human face on issues of the day such as addiction, mental illness and family issues. Madeline came to life in book #2 and I fell in love with her innocence. She’s been sheltered her entire life and has never had an opportunity to find herself. In Finding Peace, she discovers her inner strength and a new life that she wouldn’t have imagined at the beginning of the book. I hope it encourages others that no matter your circumstances, you can break free and live the life you desire.
Oh, I like that! Great inspiration 🙂
What are you working on right now? What can readers look for from you in the next year?
Book #4 in the Reclaiming Life series is my current project. It follows Bex Roberts and her desire to find love. Bex is a handful, but my favorite character. As always with Bex, expect a lot of snark and rude behavior. This one will follow the enemies to lovers trope.
That’s one of my favorite tropes! <3
What are you currently reading, and what are your thoughts about it so far?
I’m a bit behind the times. I’m finally reading A Discovery of Witches and loving it.
That’s on my TBR too!
If you had to “sell” your book in a single Tweet, what would you say?
Love, suspense, and a touch of adventure, Finding Peace has it all. Tobias and Madeline overcome their own insecurities as they solve a crime and fall in love.
I like it! Thanks again for stopping by 🙂
