What inspires you to write romance books?
I have always been drawn to this genre. I think every girl is conditioned to believe in romance, and love. This has been my true basis for writing ever since I can remember. I’ve always been in love with the idea of love.

Tell us about how you write:
The process for me is varied. Sometimes I just flow with words, and the inspiration is like a waterfall that never quits. Other times I get an idea, and want to shape it out more effectively which makes it more technical. It really just depends. If I have a concept that I want to shape out I usually sit down, and start with the basics. Sometimes I use an outline, but other times I just write.

Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I think that I really do try to consider the personalities, and how it plays out in my head when I write the descriptions, and dialogue for my stories. Without the characters there is nothing to the tale.

What advice would you give other writers?
f you really want to write do it all the time. Never stop writing, and any time inspiration strikes jot down your idea. Take the time to continue bettering yourself, and work on every concept you have at a steady pace even if you feel like it is getting nowhere. Just because you look at it, and consider it to be lackluster doesn’t mean you cannot polish it later.

How did you decide how to publish your books?
I actually got offered several publishing contracts, but I did not like any of them. Instead of signing the contracts I opted to self publish, and maintain more control over my own products by going independent.

What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I personally feel that publishing is about to go through some serious changes. Most of the industry is being forced to look at the independent, and self publishing industry more seriously. I feel that the internet has opened a whole new level of opportunity for up and coming authors who would have otherwise never gotten the publicity they deserve to have.

What genres do you write?
Scifi, Horror, Paranormal/Supernatural Romance, Erotica, Thriller, Drama

What formats are your books in?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired by dark noir erotica based on covens, and demonic entities that I had researched. It was my take on a mix between witches and vampiric elements which came together as a Caballi demon sect.
