What inspires you to write romance books?
I actually took a chance on this book. I normally do not write romance books. But a supporter told me that I needed to take my sex scenes and turn them into a novel and I did.

Tell us about how you write:
I write from my dreams directly on the computer. Usually my books deal with current events that are popular in the news and stories that may tug on your heart strings.

Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes I do. Most of my characters are me.

What advice would you give other writers?
Follow your heart. Write about your own personal experiences and your fantasies. Don’t be afraid of that inner freak allow her to shine.

How did you decide how to publish your books?
I wanted to self publish but was not aware of how to do it. So I went through a small publishing company and learned how to do it. I suggest that if you have the money, then publish yourself. But if you don’t than look for a personal small company. Like mine!

What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I feel that more small publishing companies are going to pop up everywhere. I suggest that you shop around and do your research. I see books continuing through the ages.
