the more erotica side. It tells the story of Cevin and Sam, high school sweethearts
both in getting ready to graduate in the medical field, marry and live their lives.
When Cevin starts dreaming of a beautiful woman, their worlds get turned inside
out as he tries to differentiate dream from reality. The problem is that dreams do
become reality and he has to learn quickly before the full moon what his destiny
is and how to move forward.
Where did the idea for the book come from? - A dream. Most of my books come
to me like a movie in a dream. Very vivid and the characters already developed.
I know how they will act and the basis of the story by the time I wake up. All I
have to do is sit and write it. :)
Who and what inspire you to write? - I love Tina Folsom and Nora Roberts. They
are both phenomenal writers and I just love both their writing styles. Every time I
read one of their books I get inspired to finish my own.
Each author has his or her own inspiring journey. How did you begin writing? -
I was sitting in a nursing lecture and fell into a daydream where a character was
literally screaming in my head to tell her story. I let it stew for a few days and
again, it came in a dream. This story just had to be told. She wouldn't leave me
alone until I finally sat down and started to type. I worked midnights, so it was
difficult getting sleep when Janie was so demanding, lol. When I started writing
though, 5 chapters spit out like it was nothing. Near Suicide was born, though
later I had to revise it and it is now Death Upon Me.
What has been the most pleasant surprise about writing? How about an
unexpected down side? - The most pleasant side is that people actually like my
writing. I think all writers have just a smidgen of doubt when they release a book,
and are pleasantly surprised, more like happy dancing, when they get a good
review. Downside – it's hard, consistent work.
Do you have any writing rituals? - Coffee!
Do you write your books in order? - I try. Though I have written scenes on a
different draft and added them later. I am a bit anal though and have to have
things in order and just so.
What is on your writing playlist for this book? - Call Me by Shinedown, Save
Me by Remy Zero, Rumor by Adele, Set Fire To The Rain by Gas Station Disco,
Simple Man by Lynard Skynard. I like a mix lol.
Any favorite writing snacks? - Chocolate and my electronic cigarette.
What advice would you give writers who aspire to be published? - Do your
research first, and plan on a lot of hard work. It's never-ending, but worth it!
Are you working on anything new right now? - Yes. I am finishing up Wolves of
Shadow Falls book 2 – Wolf Be Mine:A Wolves Habitat which is set to release by
September 1 if all goes well. I'm also putting Night Secrets into paperback, which
is kind of exciting too.
Who is your favorite character in your current book? - Sam for sure. She's strong
and ready to kick butt. She's very understanding of Cevin's whole situation and
doesn't care if she has to fight a pack of wolves to keep her man. I like her so
much that she got her own book – Book Two.
What is your favorite book of all time? - Samson's Lovely Mortal by Tina
Folsom. I so would love a Samson to rescue me. Hmmm. Actually, I did get my
Tell us in one sentence why we should read your book. - You'll get an awesome
plot, strong, spicy characters and the supernatural aspects we love all in one
quick, original read.
