When did you begin writing?
Other than the occasional poem or journal entry, I began writing in May of this year. I had the idea for the Erris Coven Series and just knew I wanted to write Fate Fixed.
What is your biggest challenge of being an author?
I’m new to writing so I still have many challenges. I think the biggest is making time to write. I wish I could write every day, but I have a busy life that doesn’t want to slow down.
What do you love most about being an author?
I love hearing from readers who loved my novel! Whether they write me on Facebook or on Goodreads, I love when they are passionate about my story. I especially love it when they tell me they loved my characters. It makes me so happy.
What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time I take care of my family and attend the University of Connecticut where I am
in my senior year.
What are some of your favorite movies/tv shows?
My favorite shows are usually supernatural in nature. The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Being Human, Haven and The Nine Lives of Chloe King are probably my favorites. For movies, I love Life as a House, The Twilight Saga, Requiem for a Dream, and Charlie St. Cloud, to name a few.
Who are some of your favorite authors?
I love Jane Austen, Christopher Pike, Megg Jensen, Frank McCourt, and Melissa Marr.
How many books have you written?
The only book I have published is Fate Fixed, although I have a few more in the works.
What would your ideal career be, if you couldn't be an author?
I would be a social worker in an adoption agency. My youngest is adopted and I would love to help make families happy and complete each day!
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Only to give yourself permission to write the story only you can tell. Flick the critic off your
shoulder when it tries to tell you that you do not have a story to tell.
What are you currently working on?
I am currently putting the finishing touches on Blood Twist: Book 2 in The Erris Coven Series.
