She’s got a style all her own, and unique plot lines to boot. There’s something magic buzzing about this newer indie author and I’m pretty sure, you best watch out. Or is it read up? With her debut novel being released soon, I know I’ll be keeping an eye on her and her writing. Oh, and there’s something cool about her twist on the supernatural that has my curiosity more than peaked. Give me your book now, woman! I’m serious… right now. Okay? Thanks.

When did you first tell a story?
What was it about?
Did you ever make up imaginary friends or beings for the sake of boredom or general mischievousness?
Who influenced you the most as a writer?
It wasn’t one person that influenced me, it was a few, my mother guided me into doing something i loved, she had gone through life being told she couldn’t do things because she could barely read and write, and as I also have dyslexia I remained in education to learn that I have a gift for story telling. The local librarian who opened my eyes to another world through a book she gave me to read, which I enjoyed so much that I went out and bought it with my money that I had saved from babysitting and still have it today.
Favorite book, ever. Yes, I am limiting you to one.
L.J. Smith’s Dark Visions.
Easiest part of writing for you would be….?
I think the easiest part of writing is the place and characters.
What is your most dreaded, please-don’t-make-me part of writing?
Something I’m not interested in and I don’t want to write my own biography.
If you could have dinner (and dessert) with any fictional character who would it be and why?
Wow, now that’s a question. I would have dinner with Gabriel Wolfe from L.J. Smith’s Dark Visions. When I was younger I loved his character, the rebel, dark and mysterious with unthinkable gifts, and as a young reader at the time I wished there were people like him out there in the world. He was the first fictional character I fell in love with.
Any sage advice you can pass on to fellow writers that you wish someone had told you sooner?
Do you have any weird or necessary writing habits or rituals? How do you write?
What is the color of your editing pen? Yes, I’m serious.
Of the senses (all six), what is your favorite sense to write?
Physic sense. I love writing about something everyone wishes they had, there are so many that are spoken about but never come into contact with, the idea of being able to move objects with your mind or the read the mind of another, its a gift that would be very useful.
Do you believe in Writer’s Block? If so, how do you break through it?
There’s all the hoopla over being a Pantser or a Plotter – which team are you a part of or are you somewhere in between?
I do, do some plotting but I never know where the story is going to go as the plots I line out change.
