Where are you from
A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc
I’ve always loved reading. My first smut book was Fifty Shades of Grey. After I had my little girl and being a stay at home mom for two years I decided to start writing and give my dreams of being an author a chance.
Fiona: Tell us your latest news?
I just released a bundle of fun Halloween stories that was really enjoyable to write. And now I’m back to the nitty gritty!
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
Right after I had my little girl. She was born in December and I started writing in February. I just wanted to give my dreams a chance.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Probably when I hit top 100 in Amazon for the first time. It felt real then.
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
I had the scene and I knew I wanted to write it with back and forth POVs. I didn’t know anything else about the story, but I had that scene and the way I wanted to write it so I went for it.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style?
I like to cuss a lot! lol No, really, I like free flow writing. That’s my preferred style.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
It’s hard coming up with titles. I want my story to be obvious by looking at the cover. So I try to make that easy on the readers.
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
There are a lot. But mostly, love can survive anything.
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic and are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Oh it’s 90% fiction. With what I write … yeah, I keep to fiction.
Fiona: What books have most influenced your life most? a mentor?
BB Hamel gave me the push to get into writing bad boys. I’ll always remember that.
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest and who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
I have a lot of favorites. M Never will always be at the top for me.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
Yes, absolutely, it’s my career.
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Nope, I love my books when I publish them. Each and every one.
Fiona: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I don’t remember. Actually I hated English in high school and college. Thankfully, I only had to take one class in college.
Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us?
My current work is called, Tempted. It’ll go live in a few days. It’s about a woman, who’s just lost her father and a man who befriended him before his death because of his own family history. There’s a lot of distrust and danger. I tried to really bring out the emotions.
Fiona: Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
Sometimes it’s hard to get the emotions out.
Fiona: Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?
Fiona: Who designed the covers?
Mayhem Designs, Cormar Covers, and Superkawaii
Fiona: What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Broken was emotionally draining. It was very difficult to write.
Fiona: Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
Yes, my browser history makes me look like I’m a part of the mafia. It’s … disturbing what I have to google.
Fiona: If any of your books was made into a film who would you like to play the lead
