I live in Southern Oregon with my husband and two little girls. We have two cats and an extremely lazy Chihuahua mix. (He’s actually more of a throw pillow with ears.)
I write contemporary, paranormal, romantic suspense. My idol is Stephen King and the only person I’d probably lose consciousness from meeting. I’m also not above stalking him, but that’s another story ;)
Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.
Hunter of Her Heart is the second book in my Wolfe Creek Series. This is Zane Wolfe’s story- he’s a bad boy, Native American hottie, and a guy who’s about to get in touch with a side of himself that’s a little too wild for comfort.
Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?
That’s the best part of writing! ;) I went through a bad breakup in my late teens, so I wrote the guy into a book. I gave him a potbelly and an unnatural love for breakfast burritos. It was pure awesomesauce.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I’m addicted to iCarly. I love tween TV. It’s weird how much.
When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?
I just started getting into running. Truthfully, I don’t really run… It’s more like a fast waddle. But there’s sweating involved. And some swearing. So I guess I’m doing it right.
Is there a genre(s) that you’d like to write that you haven’t tackled yet?
I would love to write a historical someday, but the research is daunting. I do love reading them, though. With the right story, you actually feel like you’re traveling through time. So magical!
What book are you reading now?
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I love her stuff! I’m also planning on getting Stephen King’s latest, Finders Keepers. I’ll get that one in audio book. I always like to have a book to listen to. Such a great way to get stories under your belt when you don’t have a lot of time to read-
