Author Interview-

What inspired you to write Crossover?

I didn’t really have an inspiration. I sort of woke up one day and decided I was going to write a story. I might have been having a midlife crisis at the time… lol

When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

Honestly, I didn’t. Writing was always a passion of mine, but I never thought I’d one day be able to do it as a career. I’d started a lot of stories. Some of them I finished, some of them I didn’t. When I finished writing Crossover, I just had the urge to send it to a friend of mine. Tara read it and told me I HAD to send it in to a publisher. So I did. When Baico phoned me and told me they wanted to publish, I was in shock. It was the most surreal thing ever. Actually, since that day, it’s been an amazing ride.

What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?

I think I was 5 or 6. I can’t remember the book, but we were still living in Ottawa which means it was around that time.

What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

I read everything. I love war stories, mysteries, romance, epic fantasy, paranormal, horror, suspense, historical, non-fiction…

What is your favorite book?

My all time favorite book so far is a tie between the Hobbit by JRR Tolkien and Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

Ooooh! That’s a toughie. I guess I’ll have to go with Steven King just because I’ve read more of his books than anyone else’s.

If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go?

I’d love to go to the British Isles back in the 1700. 


I know there was a lot of war there at the time, but I think the history and background is amazing and it would be great to live some of it first hand.

When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?

For the most part it comes easy. My newest series is giving me a bit of a headache at the moment just because there are so many stories involved. But no worries. It will be worth it.

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

I have a Yorkie named Lady Freya. She’s actually due to have puppies on June 25th.

Then there’s Mister Calvin. He’s my big white and grey cat.

And we have a fish tank. The shark is Butthead, the Ciclids are Elsa, Anna, and Olaf. The Plecko’s name is Plecko. And the lobster is Hook. :D

What is your "to die for", favorite food/foods to eat?

Steak Neptune. It’s amazing. It’s a steak with a hollandaise sauce and shrimp, crab, lobster, and asparagus on it.

Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?

Write what you love, don’t take bad reviews to heart, and spend the money on a good editor. Trust me. It will be worth it. :)

Thanks for having me!
Stay safe!
