This story, Lost Until You, has really lived in my mind for a long time. I really wanted to show how different types of love - love of a child, love of a parent, and love between soulmates - really defines a person.

Where do you get your storylines from?
That’s hard to pinpoint. I’ve always had an active imagination, even as a child. I often have
Was this book easier to write than others?
Yes and no!
It was easy in that I had so much time to write, rewrite, and edit. It was difficult in that the journey to publishing took four years, so getting it into the world felt like an obstacle in itself.
Do you only write one genre?
Currently, yes this and my current works-in-progress are all contemporary romance. However, I always wanted to write a historical fiction romance. Also, my daughter begs me to write the next teen phenomenon. She’s a Hunger Games fan!
I do my best writing late at night or early morning when my world is still for a bit and it mostly happens laying in my bed. I love writing when I am at my beach house, where life in general slows down and I can hear the crash of the waves.
Describe what made you want to be a writer?
It’s the one thing in school I felt I was good at. I struggled in Math and Science, but writing also seemed natural and easy. It was always something I enjoyed doing and I always wanted my stories to be read and enjoyed one day.
