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: Tell us your latest news.

I am wrapping up a couple of collaborations and a couple of stories to be sent out in paperback

I was four years old when I began to write. I just fell in love with it been writing since.

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.

I don’t have one

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

Fiona: Any advice for other writers?

Don’t give up. Keep up even if there are some days you can’t think of anything to write.

Now that I have gotten the hang of self publishing I hope to release even more stories in the future

The classic book called great expectations by Charles Dickens
