I'm such an eclectic reader. I love everything from Francine Rivers, Edar Allen Poe, Susan Collins, and Jana Oliver. I just read my first Jana Oliver book and fell in love with the main character and storyline. Great book!
Inspirations for the book?
I actually wrote Escapement first, but the more I worked on edits, the more Raeth screamed for me to tell her story. She is a little unstable during the book and she wanted to let everyone know why. She wouldn't leave me alone until I agreed to write her story. Next thing I know, my critique partners are yelling at me to publish it. They said it was the best thing I'd written so far, so I did.
Did you know you wanted to be an author when you were little?
I knew I wanted to entertain people, but I didn't necessarily know I wanted to be an author. I'd written many poems and short stories, but a novel seemed too overwhelming. I ended up pursing a career in acting and dancing, but an injury ended that career. I side tracked to earn my degree and work in therapy, but eventually I wrote that novel. I wa shocked to realize it was just longer than the short stories I'd written, but in some ways it was easier.
Any Pet Peeves?
I'm not sure I have any. Hmm...I guess when I can't think of an answer to a question.
Chocolate or Peanut Butter?
One is nothing without the other. They go together like PB&J.
The weirdest thing you've ever done?
I worked in a cadaver lab in college.
Is there a soundtrack to the book?
The song Muse It by The Tributes is a perfect song for The Neumarain Chronicles.
Do you need anything to write?
Quiet if it is possible. Music if my three boys, two cats, dog, and husband are home. Did I mention my eldest is lead singer and guitartist in a rock band. Yeah, quiet is rare.
How long do you write on any average day?
I don't have an average day, but I tend to write around 2000-5000 when working on a project.
Give us the number one reason to read your book.
I love what reviewers have said, so I picked one to share. :)
“Weighted starts with a bang and ends with one... leaving you wondering, questioning and wanting more!! ”
The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun. I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation. My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift. A gift I keep hidden even from myself. It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover. Will I have the strength to keep the secret? I’ll know the answer soon. If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.
