Fiona: A little about your self (ie, your education, family life, etc.).
I have lived in Kansas for most of my life. I have a ten year old daughter and another baby on the way. I did go to college for two years but couldn’t figure out what I wanted to Major in.

Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Probably around highschool
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
I read a book by Rober Mccammon that changed my viewpoint. It was called Mine. I decided after I read that one story I was going to start really putting in more efforts into my own writing. Then a couple of years ago I read Flesh Factory by Sam West and decided to start publishing my writing
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
The title usually comes to me after the first chapter.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style?
I love to dabble in Romance and erotica but mostly I write horror, paranormal or psychological thrillers
Fiona: Is there anything about your style or genre that you find particularly challenging?
I love writing extreme horror but it’s a hard genre to crack into
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic and are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
It depends on the type of story I am writing.
Fiona: To craft your works, do you have to travel? Before or during the process?
I don’t really travel to get ideas but when I am on trips I do take pictures so I can use them in my work later on.
Usually just whenever my time allows me
Fiona: Who designed the covers?
I usually do
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
I want them to be scared to get done reading one of my stories and leave the light on to go to bed
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Howard Carlyle, Thomas J Kline, Sam West just to name a few
Fiona: Who is your favorite writer, and what is it about their work that really strikes you?
Sam West and Thomas J Kline really grab my attention with the characters they create.
Fiona: Outside of family members, name one entity that supported your commitment to become a published author.

Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
I really do.
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Not a thing
Fiona: Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
I learned that sometimes the best emotions can really plump up the piece and make the reader feel a certain way
Fiona: If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
That depends on which story is being turned into a movie lol
