Sharon, thank you for
hosting me today. I look forward to visiting and will be around all day.
and why? Anything interesting about how you got started?
been romantic suspense. I tried my hand at a couple of contemporary romances.
Both will forever stay hidden. So for now, I’m sticking with what I do best,
which is killing people. Hypothetically, of course)
when I wasn’t interested in writing. Majored in journalism but my desire to
embellish quickly turned me to fiction. Life, love, family, and career
intervened, and I wouldn’t change that for the world. In fact, I think it
helped me when I buckled down and concentrated on writing.
a short story on the way. I enjoyed writing them as singles. But I’ve had a
number of requests from readers who want the secondary characters to have their
own happy ending. I’ve written book one and two of the Lost and Found, Inc,
series. Book one, Hell or High Water, is in the edit stage. I have to admit, I
love writing the series.
did you get the call to “go Indie?”
first. The Green-Eyed Doll, The Last Execution, and Someone To Watch Over Me
are published by The Wild Rose Press. But it will be Indie for me going forward.
I like the idea of being in control of my schedule, covers, editing, and
character you’ve created? Why?
I use the no name dog from The Green-Eyed Doll? I don’t plot so it didn’t
surprise me when a stray mutt wandered up and befriended my hero. He’d eat the
sheriff’s food but wouldn’t allow him to touch him. That dog wound up playing a
significant role in the book.
write the bad boys or the good boys? I’m assuming both are heroic, but which
ones are more fun to write?
writing a hero who has a troubled past and inner demons to overcome. They’re
hotter, more dangerous, and a lot more fun for the heroine to tame. Or at least
she’ll try to tame him.
Do you find it easiest to write the bad girls or the good girls?
girl. Not yet. 🙂 My heroines have been through hell in one form or another and
are stronger because of their experiences. They wind up in trouble, but don’t
always rely on someone else to come save them.
with one of your characters, which one would it be and why? Where would you go?
more than the last while I’m writing them. I’d take any of them and head to the
beach. Warm water, white sand, and a sexy hunk…I’d be happy.
desert island with two companions, who would you bring? What would you do
there? What would you bring if you could bring anything?
desert island as in voluntary, not that I’d be stranded, right? So immediately,

was a SEAL. He’s my go to guy on anything that shoots or blows up!

He’d be over the moon excited to replace his boat with a new one.

and will always be a good memory.

romantic suspense. Working title The Last Tear Drop. I read an FBI profile
about erotomania and it peaked my interest. This is way past having a stalker.

he feels betrayed and all hell breaks loose!

shied away from his right side. Except Leigh, she looked him square in the
face. He lay still while Ethan poked a finger into the scar a couple of times.
After a few seconds of investigation, the kid cupped the scar with his small
hand and patted lightly. The oddest thing happened to J.T.’s heart. It swelled
inside his chest and then clenched.
