Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m terrible at questions/requests like this. Well, I’m a dork, first and foremost. I can likely bore you with the most random facts but won’t lead you wrong when it comes to good books, good food and good drinks. Oh, and I do a killer running man on the dance floor.
Are you an action, paranormal, or romance type of person?
I am definitely a romance type of person. I’m a sucker for a happy ending and grand gestures that go along with it.
Tell us about your latest release.
Laws of Attraction released in August and it combines two people who are opposites in many ways. Lawson is the fun-loving, joker of the bunch but with a heart of gold. Langley (Lee) is a former U.S. Air Force combat pararescue jumper—was the first woman to succeed in passing the requirements to acquire that title—and isn’t very trusting or open. She’s pretty badass and Lawson, pretty much within a few minutes of meeting her/trading quips, sets his sights set on her. Here’s the book trailer if you’re interested in a bit more info: https://vimeo.com/179302603
Do you have any upcoming releases in what’s left of 2016?
Yes. Out of Love releases December 6th and it’s a little different from my previous works as it’s written in alternating first person POV. It also differs in that it is written as a completely independent standalone that does not need to be read in conjunction with any of my other books. There’s definitely a lot of banter and sexual tension between the main characters who are trying to maintain that “line” since they are employer and employee.
What can readers expect from you in 2017?
I have a standalone romantic comedy scheduled for release in January, another military romance slated for release in May, and a separate contemporary romance scheduled for release in August.
Which of your books was your favourite to write and why?
Honestly, my favorite always tends to be the one I’ve just released/finished writing. I guess I need to work on monogamy when it comes to choosing my favourite works… ;)
If you were stranded on a desert island with one of your characters, who would you pick and why?
Mac. Because he is pretty resourceful, smart, handsome and, well, his character was based on my husband. :-)
Do you have book boyfriend? If yes, who?
That’s such a tough one. Goes back to my issue with monogamy when it comes to books. LOL :-) Honestly, I think I have a more than a handful of book boyfriends.
Have your family ever read any of your work? What do they think about it?
Yes. My family read my first book and that was beyond awkward. Because everyone assumed that I was describing my own sex life in the steamy scenes. But they all said they really enjoyed it.
What’s the best reaction you’ve ever received over one of your books?
A reader emailed me to say that my books have helped her pass the time as she suffers through treatment for Stage Four breast cancer. It was heart-wrenching to read her email but just knowing that my books provided her with an escape was such an incredible compliment.
What was your favourite book as a child?
The Night Before Christmas. Lame, I know. But, seriously, I loooooved that book.
Who are your must-read/one-click authors?
Julie James, Lauren Layne, Rachel Van Dyken, and Meghan March
What book has made you laugh the most?
Oooh, that’s a tough one. I might have to say Elle Kennedy’s The Deal.
What book has made you cry the most?
Where One Goes by B.N. Toler
Are any of your heroes based on real men in your life?
They all are. Heroes and heroines in each of my books are based on the individuals I’m proud and honoured to call my friends.
Are any of the experiences in your books based on events that have happened to you/someone you know?
Yes. Approximately 85% of Wildest Dream actually happened to me. All of the teaching anecdotes in my books all happened, as well. With regards to the military aspects of my books, those are drawn from individuals I’ve come to know and I’ve tried to create as accurate of a depiction of their experiences.
What is the most romantic thing someone has ever done for you?
Planned the moment when he would tell me he loved me for the first time. It was within an enormous botanical garden that had been decorated with Christmas lights. He’d planned it right down to sitting us on a particular bench overlooking a beautiful array of lights over a large pond.
What is your drink of choice while writing?
Coffee. Specifically, my 20-ounce coffee thermos filled with medium roast from the local coffee shop with a touch of agave.
What is your favourite writing snack?
I don’t have one. I just like to type away without any distractions.
Do you have any pets?
What is your favourite season?
Summer. I’m one of those weirdos who loves the beach, the heat, the sun and humidity. Which is likely why I’ve convinced my husband to move closer to the equator once he retires. :-)
Do you prefer night or day?
I don’t have a real preference.
Are you a morning person?
Hmmm, somewhat. Not immediately, though. Like, I don’t roll out of bed, stretching with a yawn and start humming like Snow White or anything. Once I get a shower, I feel much more lively.
Cowboys, fighters, mafia men, billionaires, or soldiers?
Soldiers. Hands down.
What book are you reading now?
I’m in between books right now since I’m working on writing one of my releases for next year.
Name 3 books everyone needs to read (excluding yours).
Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James, Blurred Lines by Lauren Layne and Beneath This Mask by Meghan March.
For those who are new to your work, which book would you recommend starting with?
Wildest Dream. But once December rolls around, I’d change that to Out of Love. ;)
