WISH ME ALIVE is currently making the rounds of agents. Wish me luck!
Johnny Crawford, successful but bored with life and women, thinks he has found the girl of his dreams when he reads about a sexy character in a spy novel. Things start to go haywire when the character decides she needs a new author and figures out how to materialize. His perfect world is turned upside down as Johnny tries to put the genie back in the bottle and prevent the character from ruining his new romance.
Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?
My first manuscript was inspired by the story of my neighbor's ancestress, who set off alone into the wilds of Georgia in 1806 with her six sons under twenty. In my story, a young girl discovers this woman and her family and learns the secret of why she is in hiding.
Is there a theme or message in your work that you would like readers to connect to?
My last two projects feature writing and the paranormal and each of them has a moral woven into the plot.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
How old I am!
Which romance book or series (or other genre, if you don’t write romance) do you wish you had written?
Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series
Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?
I really like Johnny Crawford, hero of WISH ME ALIVE. He goes through a big metamorphosis - from a womanizing heel to a really nice guy.
If this book is part of a series…what is the next book? Any details you can share?
I'm afraid my writing is spontaneous. I didn't intend to write two books that featured romance and the paranormal - they just emerged!
What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?
WISH ME ALIVE is doing the rounds of agents, but if I'm not successful by mid-summer I will be self publishing again.
What book are you reading now?
I just finished JACARANDA by Cheri Priest and THE BOOK OF LOST THINGS by John Connolly.
