★Describe yourself in 3 words.
Inquisitive. Grateful. Happy.
★If you could have written any book which book would it be and why?
Oh, that would have to be INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE by Anne Rice. She's my favorite author and that novel really is a masterpiece.
★Who is your favourite of your own characters (either already written or still in your head) and why?
Mia Lauren. She has a special place in my heart because no matter how badly beaten down she is Mia's always so sweet and forgiving.
★Best book you have read so far this year, and your Favourite book of all time?
SONGS OF SUBMISSION by CD Reiss. She's a fabulous author. I think it has a lot to do with the fact she studied screenwriting.
One of my favorite books of all time is SEARCH by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. It's a riveting read.
★Are there any other authors who inspire you?
E.L James and Maya Banks.
★Favourite thing that's been said about one of your books?
I love hearing "Wow" from readers who've read my books. That's such a compliment. Storytelling is so important to me, and I really do give every novel my heart and soul.
I also enjoy hearing that readers have fallen in love with my characters.
★What does the next twelve months look like in your book world?
I've started a writing a trilogy and I'm looking forward to seeing how that unfolds. You got the scoop here!
I'm hoping to have some more news as the months progress, but it has a lot to do with having the Enthrall Sessions go worldwide!
★Who is your current book boyfriend and who is your all time, old faithful, go to book boyfriend?
Cameron Cole, of course. ;)
★If you were stuck on an island with just one paperback book, which book would it be?
I'd have to write a book to survive it. I have to write every day. So I'd be looking for something to write with. And then water. Then chocolate.
What kind of island is this? ;)
★Favorite line from a book.
“Till this moment I never knew myself.”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
★What's your go to karaoke song?
'Don't You Want Me?" by The Human League
★You've opened up your wardrobe and your clothes aren't there, instead it's your dream world! You walk through, what's the first thing you see?
A golden, sandy beach and a blue-green ocean.
★Is there a particular genre, maybe outside your comfort zone that you would like to write?
★What's the best and worst advice you've ever received?
I'm not willing to share that mistake.
All I'll say is it was great advice and I have the song "Ironic" by Alanis Morissette, ringing in my ears whenever I think of it. :)
Still, these things nudge you onto a better path in the long run.
★What words do you love to use, and see in books, and what words do you hate to use / see?
I love the word 'passion.'
★If you had one superpower, what would it be?
★Most underrated author / book you've read?
She has a big following, but it should be bigger.
★Who is your absolute favourite man candy?
★If you didn't write books, what would you be doing?
I'd be immersed in the art world. Probably doing something to do with design or some other form of creating.
★There is a massive awards ceremony for authors, both trad published and indie. It's a big shindig and everyone is there. In a room full of these incredible people, who is the author that makes you mush and you totally fangirl over them?
★What is your #BookZero? That one book you've read again and again, and you know you will re read it again?
There are just too many books...
