About the author:
I was raised in the Central Valley where I met her husband in Elementary School and lived right around the corner from him for years before he even noticed me, but I noticed him and realized what Love at First Sight was real. Now we live on the Central Coast of California with our grown children; where the inspiration for my books comes from. When not writing you will find me sitting on the deck reading romances and listening to the waves, I am a bibliophile and hopeless romantic.
I also love to cook and throw parties for our friends and family so this is my excuse to spend way too much time on Pinterest. I loves to talk to readers and connect with them through Social Media so find me on Facebook or Instagram.
What inspires you to write romantic fiction?
I love a good romance novel and I love an HEA. that is what I love to read, so once I started writing my first book I knew it would be a romance novel. I believe in Love at First Fight and Fate and that's what inspires me to write my book plus the beautiful scenery of the Central Coast and surrounding Vineyards. I want my readers to feel like they are part of their love story. Even if it is fantasy, it's still a love story.
Tell us about how you write.
I write in First Person Point of View and Dual Point of Views. I let the characters tell the story and I feel like each needs their own voice. I write about current issues and and real life. From the first meeting to marriage and children I feel like I am telling a family story and the readers are following along, and they are invested in the character and hoping for an HEA.
Do you listen to or talk to to your characters?
I don't talk to them but I do dream about them so I guess I do listen to them. I never know who will inspire a character in my daily life.
What advice would you give other romance writers?
Just do it. If you want to write, then write. It was never a dream of mine to become a writer. I didn’t figure out this dream until just a few years ago. Now I can’t see myself doing anything else. Don’t let people tell you that you can’t do it. If it’s your dream; then make it happen.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think that people will always want to read a good book, and as long as there are writers that have the stories, there will be readers to buy the books. I do think that Indie and Traditional publishing will have to find a common ground, because more and more authors are going Hybrid which means publishing as an Indie Author and with a Publishing Company.
Which romance sub-genere(s) fit your stories best?
Spicy Contemporary Romance with some suspense and HEA's
