Author Q&A

Author Q&A

When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
Unlike a lot of writers, I haven’t been writing since the moment of my birth. I have always been a reader but it wasn’t until 2008 that I put pen to paper and attempted something that I thought was brilliant but seriously, the story just didn’t go anywhere. I joined a writers group, got feedback and studied how to write my stories better. The first time I was asked for the remaining chapters in the story being critiqued was pretty special. I don’t write every day of the year but its pretty close.

Take us through a typical writing day for you.
I work at my writing career full-time so after I gently guide the family out the door to school and work I usually grab a coffee and settle in to write as many words as I can before midday. After lunch, words are often much slower to come by but I persist until I finish the chapter or scene I’m working on. After that I answer emails, read industry related blogs. I’m  indie published, so there is always something new to discover and talk about with friends. Late afternoon is spent with my family. I don’t like to write my stories late at night because I find it hard to switch off and go to sleep. Somewhere in there I’m also on Facebook or Twitter or my posting updates on website. If I’m preparing for a new release I might work weekends too.

How would you describe the characters in your books?
Sexy, sometimes damaged, occasionally dangerous but always willing to connect with others and take a chance they’ll find love.

What do you want the reader to get out of your books?
Entertainment, an escape from reality, a laugh, an urge to wake their partner in the middle of the night and make love to them, and to smile at the end of the story.
