What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Years ago, while vacationing with my family, the idea for the story popped into my head. It stayed on my mind for the remainder of the trip. I couldn’t wait to get home to write out my thoughts. I wrote the first book and had no intention of writing about them after that, but the characters continued speaking and before I realized it, I had a story for each family member.

I read a really bad erotica series and thought I could perhaps do better. I quickly learned that writing erotica is not as easy as it may seem. Since writing my first novel, my readers inspire me to keep writing.
