I rush back up the dark stairwell, shoving the key into the doorknob. It takes a minute for the lock to click and I push myself inside the apartment, securing every lock and deadbolt. I can’t stay here in Hutchinson, Kansas any longer. Pulling my phone from my purse, I text Weston.
Tatiana is here. It’s not safe for me.
I grab the few belongings that have any value to me, sentimental or otherwise, and shove it into my shoulder bag, including the stolen silver necklace. It has value and if I’m forced on the run, I’ll need money to survive.
I know.
What did Weston mean he knew Tatiana is at the bar? Had he seen her? Is he there?
What do you mean, you know? I type into the phone. If he saw her, why didn’t he warn me? I can’t go down out the front door and it’s only a matter of time until she finds me just a few feet away. I grow restless waiting for an answer.
The phone buzzes and displays an incoming call from Weston. "Wes, tell me you’re here." The only thing to do is hop in his car and drive into the night, far from Kansas.
A female’s voice bubbles with laughter. "Oh he’s coming darling, but you should know he won’t get here in time. Amazing how easy it is to clone a phone number and steal his service. The advancements Stem Tech has made is encouraging."

Author Ineterview

What inspired you to write Stolen Art?

I've been wanting to write something a little more science fiction and less science fantasy. I love conspiracy driven stories with interesting characters, lots of action, and quite a bit of adventure. Dark Angel used to be a television show on FOX a very long time ago. That was the start of my inspiration for Stolen Art. There's also another more current show that added to that inspiration, Orphan Black. 

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

I started writing when I was a teenager but while I was in college I self-published my first novel. It was before Amazon offered Createspace, it was very early on. I think I sold all of $50 worth. It was a huge disappointment but looking back, I did nothing to market or even edit my novel. The cover was awful and I'm surprised I even made that much money! After that bust, I realized writing was a hobby, not a career. It wasn't until years later when I was writing Aberrant for my own personal reasons, that I figured I'd send it out to publishers and see if anyone was interested in reading it. Turns out I got two offers. 

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

Hmmm. I remember reading The Velveteen Rabbit over and over again. I'm sure there were other books I read, but that was my favorite. 

What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

I love young adult science fiction, dystopian, and fantasy. I also enjoy reading steamy romance novels, as I've been writing more of those lately under a pen name, Ravyn Rayne. 

What is your favorite book?

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. 

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

John Green. I love his writing, it's poetic without being poetry. It's also relatable for all ages. 

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

That's tough. I'm not sure I'd want to travel too far back into history, (too many wars, lack of equal rights, etc) but I'd probably go back to when I was a teenager and warn myself about my medical troubles so I wouldn't spend years trying to figure out what was wrong. I had over a decade of unexplained symptoms. I spent years visiting more than a dozen different doctors that kept sending me to other specialists for multiple tests. I even went to the Mayo Clinic which wasn't cheap. Eventually I found the right doctor, an Autonomic Specialist (Neurology) and a correct diagnosis, Autonomic Dysfunction. It would have saved me a lot of worrying knowing what was going on and made me feel a lot better if I'd have had the right medication early on. Of course some of that medication didn't exist yet...but it still would have been easier. But of course dealing with all that emotionally led me to writing Aberrant, so I then again maybe going back wouldn't be so worthwhile? 

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

Writing comes easy, though sometimes finding the ending can be hard. 

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

I have a dog. In college I used to have a rabbit that I smuggled into my dorm. 

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

Steamed crabs! Though you can't get that in Chicago. 

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

Write a lot. Read even more.
