What inspires you to write romantic fiction?
The most interesting stories involve conflict and speak directly to our emotions. Romantic fiction is an excellent medium for exploring both inner conflict and the clashes between two people as they find their path together. Thinking about the balance between wild emotion and stabilizing influences inspires me.

Tell us about how you write.
I usually start with a very general idea for the plot and then imagine the main characters in a great deal of detail. Once I know the characters inside and out, the details of the plot emerge naturally when I place the characters in various situations.

Do you listen to or talk to to your characters?
I swear at them a lot when they aren't cooperating with being written. 😉 In the course of my daily life, I often think of what my characters would say or do in response to something I encounter.

What advice would you give other romance writers?
Focus on the characters. If the characters aren't good, the plot won't save it.

How did you decide how to publish your books?
Sometimes, it's hard for me to find something that I want to read., so I decided that I would write the kind of books I wished I could find.

What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think a hybrid marketplace is going to develop that offers some curation without being as restrictive and exclusionary as traditional publishing houses.

Which romance sub-genere(s) fit your stories best?
Erotic Fiction, Romantic Thriller, Romantic Suspense
