I wrote the first book in the Shadow Born Series, Shadows of Fate, to keep my mind busy during a very stressful time in my life. I had no intention of submitting it to a publisher, until my close friend/critique partner read it and convinced me to go that route. I’m so glad I did. I’d been writing contemporary romantic suspense up unto that point, which I still love, but paranormal romance/urban fantasy is definitely more suited to my voice.
What do you love about being an author?
There are so many things. J I love being able to create new worlds, tell stories, weave mysteries. There’s nothing better.
If you could have dinner with any literary character, who would it be and what would you eat?
Honestly, I have no idea. It would be fun to meet Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake. We’d definitely go out for coffee.
If your book was to be made into a movie, who would you cast as the leads?
Jessica Chastain and Gerard Butler.
Vampires – do you prefer them as sexy leads or blood hungry monsters?
Both. I want it all! The more the merrier.
If you had a time machine, which era would you go back to and why?
I’m a huge history buff, particularly ancient history. I’ve always been fascinated by Pompeii, so I’d probably go see it BEFORE it was destroyed.
I really wish someone could have taught me not to take everything so serious. I’m still working on that J
If you were a supernatural creature, what would you be and why?
Anything, as long as I could time travel, that would be awesome.
Where do you write best?
At home, where I’m relaxed, have a giant cup of coffee, and good music.
What was the last book you read, and what were your thoughts on it?
I just finished Kim Harrison’s last book in the Hollows series. It was awesome, but also bittersweet. I’m so sad the series is over.
If you didn’t write in your genre, which other would you prefer and why?
I love my genres (paranormal romance and urban fantasy), but I also love epic fantasy as well. One day I would love to write one. Primarily because I love world building, and with epic fantasy the sky is the limit J
