#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
I would love to be able to write fulltime someday. It has been my dream since I began writing when I was in middle school.
#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
The most difficult part of the writing process for me is the back cover blurbs. Summarizing the entire story without giving too much away while making the book sound interesting is tougher than it seems. I go through draft after draft after draft.
#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
My very good friend, Rebecca, has been my sounding board/beta reader since we were in high school. She helps me think through storylines, characters, and sometimes remembers more of my book backgrounds/foundations more than I do. She is a great help with brainstorming. Without her, and my husband - who knows everything about my books without having to read them - I don’t think I would be this far in my writing career.
#4 – What is next for your writing?
With Wicked Passion’s (Under Realm Assassins #3) release, I will now shift gears and focus on the next item on my project board, The Darkest Light, which is a new series. I hope to release The Darkest Light this fall and then return to the Under Realm world to work on Fade to Night (Under Realm Assassins #4). 2019 is going to be a busy year for me and I love it!
#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
Reading was my gateway drug for writing. I began my addition to both reading and writing with Companions of the Night by Vivian Vande Velde. The gothic feel of her writing, the darkness surrounding her world and the vampire hero hooked me. For my reading challenge on Goodreads I’ve already surpassed my 50 book reading goal for the year. I’m currently reading Lord of Lies by Amy Sandas.
