1. What were you in your life before you became a writer? Did this influence your writing?
Long story. I was a storyteller as a kid. I made up games and stories to entertain my friends. I read six or more books a week, so I didn't write stories. College and then teaching took up a lot of my time, so I didn't read or write unless it was for work or night classes. I started making up stories for my daughter when she reached four and we ran out of books to read or I needed to make a point with a story. When I retired I began writing stories my grandmama told me, Then I found romance novels.
2 Are you genre specific or general? Why? I don't mean genres like romance, mystery, fantasy etc. There are many subgenres of the above.
I write the stories in my head at the time I sit down. Characters learned I would write their stories and proceeded to pester me with their stories. I published a reincarnation story because two ghosts and a young woman hijacked my imagination one night. I have two woman's fiction stories, two romantic suspense stories and a romantic comedy. I have more stories to finish, mostly fantasy/paranormal.
3. Did your reading choices have anything to do with your choice of a genre or genres?
Not really I will read almost anything.
4. What's your latest release?
I had two releases in 2015. Protecting Melissa is a romantic suspense and book two of the Protecting series. My editor calls them erotic romance. Cheerleader Dad is my sweet romantic comedy.
5. What are you working on now?
Now I am trying to get my demon book done and publish a stripper book I finished.
I am editing an anthology in which I have a short story.
6. Where can we find you?
You probably don't want all of these!
