1) First, tell us about yourself – where you live, your family, and those sorts of details.
A) Thanks for inviting me to visit. I’m really happy to be here. I live in Texas with my husband and a very spoiled cat named Molly. We’ve lived in Texas for just over four years. I was born in New York and grew up in New Jersey. Texas is a big change for us but we love it.
2) How long have you been writing?
A) I’ve been telling stories my entire life, but I didn’t start writing them down until I was in my twenties.
3) Do you have a favorite place to write?
A) I usually write in our sunroom overlooking the lake. I edit in the office, but for creative work, I sit on my chaise and enjoy the view.
4) Why did you decide to write Kane’s Bounty?
A) I wrote Kane’s Bounty for a “call” from Ellora’s Cave Publishing. They were looking for books about bounty hunters and the story came to me instantly.
5) Who is your favorite character in your book and why?
A) I really love Kane. He’s a mind reading bounty hunter and that’s not always easy to deal with. He’s had a pretty rough life where very few choices were his own and yet he always does what’s right and good. Sometimes he brakes the law, but even then, he’s doing it for the right reasons. He could have turned out like several other characters in the book who don’t always walk the straight and narrow. Kane’s the kind of guy you want on your side when the crap hits the fan. I think you’ll love him too!
6) How about your least favorite character? What makes them less appealing to you?
A) Oh man, there are some really great bad guys in this book. I guess, I’d have to say Lena’s ex-husband, Thorn. He’s the man you’ll love to hate. Greedy, heartless and rich beyond measure, Thorn makes my skin crawl.
7) Do you proofread/edit your own books or do you get someone to do that for you?
A) I do three rounds of edits before I send it to my critique partner and beta reader. After that it goes to my editor and finally a copy editor.
8) What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
A) I love to cook with my husband. I write a cooking blog every Friday about what we’ve cooked during the week. I love to garden and we adore travel.
9) Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?
A) I read all the time. I love Eloisa James, Karen Marie Moning, Karla Doyle, Kit Rocha and so many more. Jane Austin is my inspiration and the reason I write romance.
10) Is Kane’s Bounty part of a series?
A) Kane’s Bounty is already part of the On The Hunt series. These are books by all different authors that write for Ellora’s Cave Publishing. All the books are about bounty hunters and are in all different genres. You should check them out. There are some great books in the series.
B) As for me, I had only planned for the one book. However, so many people loved Kane’s Brother, Joshua and asked for his story that I couldn’t resist. I’m about halfway through and Joshua is planning some very exciting changes in his life. Those changes may lend themselves to a series about psychic agents. We’ll have to wait and see. ;)
