- How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing ever since I was a kid. Of course, back then, it was just journaling, but I eventually expanded to real stories over time.
- What is your favorite genre to write?
That’s a tough one! Honestly, I’m torn between paranormal romance and urban fantasy.
- Which genre have you never tried before, but would you like to try out?
- Please tell us about your book.
My Maker’s Keeper is about an 18-year-old girl who gets turned into a vampire against her will. She tries to start fresh in a small town, but she ends up falling for a local boy who ignites her thirst for blood.
- Which character was your favorite, and why? Which character was your least favorite, and why?
Lucas was probably my favorite to write. He’s this sexy and dangerous vampire with a chip on his shoulder. Funny enough, his sister, Vivian, was probably the hardest to write. She’s just a major hothead. That’s so not me, so it really was tough writing her character.
- What was the hardest part about writing your book?
Probably finishing it. Ha! There was always some type of distraction that pulled me away from writing (my family, specifically). So I really had to carve out time to finish this book.
- What is your writing routine? Are there things you absolutely need to start writing?
Generally, I always outline my book first. This includes the story and the characters. This is a must for me. Once the outlining process is done, I jump into writing, then rewrite and rewrite and rewrite. Ha! After I get to a good place, I bring in my beta readers and rewrite based on their comments. When the product is done, I send it to my editor.
- How long did it take you to write your book from start to finish?
It literally took me years to write this book! Somewhere along the line I had a baby, so that took me away from the story. Eventually I was able to get back to it and finish it.
- Can you tell us about your editing process?
I send the book off to an editor to do all the dirty work.
- Is this book part of a series? If so, how many installments do you have planned?
I do plan on making this part of series (at least I left the ending open). Most likely this will be a trilogy.
- Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Write – even when you don’t want to.
- Why should everyone read your book?
Because the main character, Hannah, isn’t some damsel in distress. She’s a teenage vampire with real issues (that doesn’t always revolve around boys). At the same time you still get a lot of romance and fun mystery sprinkled in.
- If you could meet three authors, dead or alive, which authors would you choose?
Tom Robbins, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling
- What inspired you to write your book?
Honestly, I’ve always been a big fan of vampire lore, so I’ve been dying to write something about vampires. I was lucky to think up this story.
- Are you working on something at the moment? If so, can you tell us more about it?
I’m working on an urban fantasy novelette right now. It’s about this cynical and sarcastic woman who doesn’t believe in the supernatural – only to discover she is supernatural and has to team up with a hot guy to rid the world of monsters.
MY MAKER’S KEEPER
Five months ago, Hannah woke up in the middle of the woods as a vampire. She didn’t know how it happened or who turned her. She just knew she wasn’t safe in her hometown anymore.
Fort Wayne was supposed to be her fresh start. Her chance to finish high school without any other incidents. But then she met Jackson. Their attraction was instant and awakened something deep inside of her. Her thirst for blood.
Things only got worse when her maker, Lucas, came to town. He might have been sexy, but he was one dangerous vampire. And if Hannah wanted to keep Jackson safe, she had to protect him from Lucas’ ravenous ways. Even though she found herself excited by them.
But Lucas wasn’t there for her. Something sinister was happening in town. Vampires were going missing, and if Hannah didn’t want to be next, she had to work with Lucas to solve the mystery. But could she trust him? Or should she trust Jackson? She had to make a choice—and her life might just depend on it.
