Fiona: Tell us your latest news?
My 3rd book in my paranormal thriller series will be releasing soon!!
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
I love to read and I was waiting for a few books to release and my husband told me to try writing my own.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I’m still a work in progress haha
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
It’s no longer available, but I loved reading about love triangles, so I wanted to write my own
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style?
Nope 🙂 I like to try everything
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
Honestly, they just kind of pop up and thankfully they work haha
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Not really, I just hope that people enjoy my stories
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic ?
None at all. My stories are fantasy, if only we could have a fairy godmother lol
Fiona: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Some of them are based on me. A few of my side characters are based on my friends
Fiona: What books have most influenced your life most? a mentor?
I loved reading Maya Banks and Tara Sivec when I was writing – those women have amazing talent
Fiona: What book are you reading now?
Unfortunately, the book I’m reading now is Colorado Revised Statutes lol. I have a mile long list of books I need to catch up on
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Since getting back to work – I feel horrible for saying this but I’m out of the reading loop.
Fiona: What are your current projects?
I am getting through edits on Book 3, Spellbound, and then once I have a set schedule down – I hope to get a new story started
Fiona: Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.
I have a circle of friends that enjoy reading my books and without them I would feel empty as a writer.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
I do 🙂
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Oh goodness no 🙂
Fiona: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
Just when my husband told me to try it out and write a short story, and it became 200 pages haha
Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us?
Well, you would have to read book 1 and 2, but this will close out Emma’s story and she will face a whole new witch with really strong powers
Fiona: Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
When I get writers block, it hits hard.
Fiona: Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
I really enjoy Tara Sivec. Her sense of humor is a lot of fun.
Fiona: Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?
No 😦 but I wish I did haha
Fiona: Who designed the covers?
Fiona: What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Having to take breaks haha
Fiona: Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
Sometimes I feel like I have this great story rolling and realize that I forgot to say how it happened. In my mind I know how it did, but forget people can’t read my mind
Fiona: Do you have any advice for other writers?
If you have a story, put it down on paper. I’ve heard they don’t know if they could do it. Just try.
Fiona: Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you SO much for checking out my books. It warms my heart to see people interested
Fiona: Do you remember the first book you read?
I’m pretty sure it was something by R. L. Stein, as a young kid. Going back even further – definitely Dr. Suess
Fiona: What makes you laugh/cry?
My kids. For both. They are hilarious and seeing them grow.up is sad
Fiona: Is there one person pass or present you would meet and why?
Hmmm…I’m not sure I have an answer for this….perhaps Kristen Bell. She was an inspiration to Careful What You Wish For (my romcom)

Love to run, hike, and spend time with my husband, kids and sister
