Tell us a little bit about yourself, anything you’d like your readers to know:
Well, I’m a married mother of four. All girls! Yeah, puberty’s going to be fun for me. I stay at home and take care of my girls and write. I love to drink, read, and watch my t.v. shows. I’m the biggest procrastinator you will know. I just lose all sense of motivation sometimes and need a good kick in the ass. Can I say that? Lol! I love all things fantasy and romance. I had never been out of the US until last May when my husband and I went on our first vacation together and we took a cruise. It was amazing! I want to move from bipolar Colorado to the ocean now.

What made you do decide to become an author?
Nothing really made me decide to do this. One day I received an email from my college stating that they wanted us to submit stories to them and that’s when all of this started. I realized that with the language and certain events in the story it might not be suitable for a college newspaper, so I decided to try my hand at being an author. So far so good. 

Who are your favorite authors, and how have they influenced your writing?
I love Nora Roberts! Her fantasy romance novels are amazing. I discovered Kristie Cook, and C K Bryant and loved them as well. Oh and I can’t forget J K Rowling, but I really only like the Harry Potter series.

Tell us about your book:
Which one? Lol Both books in my first series are NA Fantasy Romance books.
Book one in my series is about a girl named Sasha. She finds out she isn’t human and the man of her dreams is real. It’s a messed up kind of love story with lots of fantasy and twists in it. Book two follows starts off where book one abruptly ends. She is finally going to go to the world she came from and is finally going to meet her parents for the first time. There is love, drama, action and death all in book two. The ending is definitely a killer and leaves the reader wanting more and dying for the third book NOW. 

Everyone has their idiosyncrasies, what’s yours?
Lmao! Well…I spend a lot of time in my room, more than any other room in the house. I prefer it. I grew up having to be in my room 24/7, so it is my sanctuary. I feel safe and secure in it. Don’t get me wrong, I do go into other rooms of the house. I just find myself coming back to my room more than any other person would probably.

What’s your favorite book turned movie and why?
I would have to say Harry Potter. The books were amazing and suck you into their world while the movies actually let you see their world on screen. Although, I thought some parts of the books were left out of the movies, they did a wonderfully amazing job making them!

What’s your favorite genre to read?
Fantasy Romance of course! I love to be swept away into a make believe world of magic, drama, and beautifully descripted lands/worlds.

Which do you do more, read or write, and why?
I like to think I do both about the same. I write and then when the creative juices aren’t flowing so much I read. It helps get me back on track to getting my books done.

What is your writing process like, and what’s your favorite part of it?
My writing process consists of me sprinting my butt off with my sprinting buddy and then playing video games, reading or watching some movies. Then writing some more. That is of course when my children and husband allow for it. A lot of what I write I dream about first. Although, the Elven Gods series is not done this way. However, my new book that I’m currently writing was done this way.
