I decided I wanted to become a
writer when I was in high school. I had several teachers they were very
influential and encouraged me to continue writing but I wasn't actually
able to do anything with many of the ideas that I had until much later
do you write and what genres do you write and why do they appeal to
Predominantly I write anything that happens to fall into the
Paranormal category that can be anything from romance to Adventure to
Fantasy or science-fiction as well as romance. My love of the Paranormal
started at a very young age watching horror movies when I was very
young with my dad on Friday
nights and also because my family is very involved with their Heritage
so stories about the fairies from Ireland and the likes of such really
piqued my interest.
What made you decide to sit down and actually start something?
I am a
really big reader and I think that influenced me wanting to write a
great deal. I had lots of notes about things that I wanted to write too
from the time that I was in high school moving forward but really never
did anything with it until I turned 40 so I guess you could say I was a
bit of a late bloomer.
Do you write full-time or part-time?
I would love to say that I write
full-time because I do write every single day but unfortunately writing
is often not a job that pays the bills whenever you are first being
established as an author, so I do work a full-time job and then I
dedicate at least two hours every evening to writing.
5. Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
I write whenever my muse takes over it's that simple.
6. Which writers inspire you?
I adore Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde, and Washington Irving. I love the classics.
7. So, what have you written?

Crabtree's School for Unnaturals, books one and two, Unchained which is
