Tell us about yourself.
I have been writing for as long as I can remember. It was only the last few years that I actually pursued getting published.
When did you know you wanted to be an author?
I knew from the time I was in 6th grade around 11 years old yet, I can recall being younger and making up stories with my girlfriend and acting them out on the playground.
What genres do you like to read? Are these the same genres you write in?
Autobiographies of famous singers and actors that I enjoyed listening to as a teenager. I also love historical fiction. I haven’t written an autobiography yet maybe when I’m famous.😉
Is your book for adults, young adults or children?
The book is definitely not for children. It’s hot and steamy and needs some firemen to help the readers cool off.
What is your current release or project?
My current project is a short story entitled Through the Flames. Through the Flames is in part of a larger charity anthology, Slow Burn: The Fires That Bind Us.
What is your blurb or synopsis of the book?

“When I heard Pop wanted to sell the land, I hopped on the next flight straight out of the States.”
“Welcome home,” my sister said, wrapping me up in her arms. I breathed in the scent of soap, rose water, and cookie dough. Although she was younger than me, she reminded me so much of our mother. That compassion and understanding. Her ability to read me even after all this time apart like I hadn’t moved oceans away.
“No kids. She’s waiting for you, Syd,” she said, smugly rubbing my shoulder.
“Who?” I lied, crossing my arms against my chest.
“Who? The only woman who ever truly mattered to you. Jacinta, Lee.”
“Yeah, right,” I rolled my eyes.
“You’re wrong, sis. She’s engaged yet again to another billionaire. I wonder what happened to the first one?”
Do you have a favorite scene?
My favorite scene is when Jacinta and Sydney run into one another for the first time at the house.
What advice would you give a beginner?
Keep trucking as they say. Practice makes perfect.
