Day 1

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!

I have the memory of a gnat and she wants it back. I have no clue why!

Do you ever base your characters on real people, people you know? If you do, do you tell them?

My characters think they are read people, so I wouldn't dare tell them if I based them on someone else I know. The characters would pitch fits! Thanks for the question!
