Tell me a little about yourself!
I’m a professional choreographer, mom to three super crazy kids and slightly obsessed (seriously understated) with every Hallmark Christmas movie…I can’t stop watching them, I need to belong to a group because I have withdrawals when they aren’t available!!!
Is there a title for your current WIP? If so, what is it?
Come Back to Me
When did you realize you wanted to be an author?
It wasn’t a lightbulb moment. I wrote a journal entry that turned into a short story that became a realllllyyyy long story. My husband kept bugging me (and of course I didn’t listen because what does he know) then my best girlfriend read it and said: “you should pursue this”. Now I’m knee deep in unfamiliar territory but I’ve never felt so right! So, I guess that means I’m a damn writer and I would have it no other way.
While writing, do you have music on or do you need absolute silence to concentrate?
Oooooohhhh I have a playlist…mostly country with some old r&b mixed in. Ya know, for the sexy scenes.
Who do you look up to as an author?
I am obsessed with Meghan March and Colleen Hoover.
Do you sneak real-life events into your books?
Absolutely! The prologue to my first book is an excerpt from my own journal entry. At the time, my life was stuck in what felt like limbo but I knew to see my way through it I needed to envision a different ending other than a tragedy. So did that via my journal. Also, my husband likes to think I base the sexy scenes off our bedroom…..I’ll just leave that right there. Ha ha ha.
What was the most challenging part about writing your first book?
Self-doubt. How do you know if something that means so much to you will resonate with others? I still don’t know but now I just hope people can hear and feel my sincerity through these characters. Also, money! Damn this stuff costs a lot! I need to hit the lottery! However the cover alone….whoo hoo, I would’ve have sold a kid to get this cover! 😉 JK
Have you ever co-written before? If so, with you?
No. I will…any takers?
LET’S HAVE A LITTLE FUN

What’s your BIGGEST pet-peeve?

You’re the main character in the LAST book you finished, who are you?

Tell me something you don’t think a lot of people would know about you.
I’m a worry wart and over thinker.
FINISH THE SENTENCE
The best thing I’ve done in my life is have those three hellions, they are pretty amazing. They really are all the qualities I hope to become ( when I grow up).
When I was younger I wanted to be a lawyer…ewww I know.

Anything else you want to add?
Buy my book. Follow me! I don’t want to be a sad loser on social media. At least follow me so I can pretend to be cool.
