When did you first realize you wanted to become a writer?
I’ve been a writer since I was a child. I’ve always loved fiction and was an avid reader. The amazing opportunity to be a self-published author makes it possible for me to share my work. That’s what has really changed, and I think it gives readers lots of choices.
Among all the books you have read which of these has significantly contributed to your writing style?
I read a lot of contemporary romance and new adult romance as I love the genre and like to keep up with what readers enjoy. My writing style is unique, and when I write I just block everything else out. Only the story exists. So I don’t know if my style has been influenced except to say that I do focus on writing the types of stories I know my readers want.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
Absolutely, and you’ll see that a lot in my romances. In fact, that can be one of the most exciting factors in the story, how the characters are instantly in love.
Where were you born and where do you call home?
I was born in California and lived there most of my life. A few years ago I moved to Tucson and I love this area of Arizona. It’s mountainous and beautiful.
Is there something that has just recently happened in your life that you would like to share?
Well, this may be the obvious thing. But writing romance and publishing is a great experience. It’s still pretty new for me. I started my Facebook Fan Page and readers talk to me all the time. That’s such a wonderful thing, to be able to chat directly with my readers. I can’t get enough of it.
Can you sum up Captivated in a few words?
Captivated is the story of Ella, a young girl, overcoming any and all personal issues to be with the man she loves. Adam, the hero, has his own struggles and ultimately conquers all because of his love for Ella.
If Captivated was made into a movie or TV series, what actors would you like to see playing your characters?
Seriously, it’s my readers that get to choose. But if I’m on the spot I’d say:
Ellen Page or Chloe Grace Moretz for Ella Walker
William Moseley or Freddie Stroma for Adam Bianci
Any advice to aspiring writers?
Just write is my best advice. I’ll always get my idea and do an outline of the chapters and storyline. When I’m happy with that, I’ll just start writing. It’s best to write the whole story before you start rewriting or changing. The creative flow will stop if you start evaluating it too much before you’ve even told the story. Keep writing and critiques or editing separate.
