Read, I read A LOT!!! I love to get lost in amazing imagined worlds.

5.  Top 5 favorite TV shows?

This one is harder!!! Only because I’m not a big tv watcher.  Ok, I definitely did watch and loved Sparticus, Game of Thrones, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, The Walking Dead.

6.  If you could make one statement the entire planet would hear and remember, what would it be?

Never forget the darkness within.

Immigration issues and Healthcare issues.  Both have affected my life in major ways.

8.  In your opinion, what characteristics do the best bad guys have in common?

They are ice cold, don’t care about anyone, even their own minions and would betray you faster than you can say: “what the…”

9.  What is most likely to put you in a creative mood?

Lots of caffeine, blasting tunes and  being left alone!!!!

10.  Is there anything you’d like to tell us about your books?

My debut series starts with Ever Shade (A Dark Faerie Tale) and has Shade, who thinks she’s human, discovering a whole other parallel world of Faerie.  She finds out she’s part faery, has extraordinary magic and is enemy number one for some treacherous faeries.  It’s releasing on March 16th with Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing. I also have two contributions to the Dark Light anthology with my publisher.  My new series out March 31st  starts with Reign of Blood- a post-apocalyptic vampire hunter novel  that follows seventeen year old April, a now viscous vampire killer in the desolate abandoned desert of Las Vegas.  Her search for her mother and brother bring her into contact with all the results of the viral epidemic that wiped the human race out.  Does she have what it takes to adapt to this not so shiny-new world?  It is due out March 31st on  My poetry collection will be available in mid-February titled: Whispers of Dreams.  As You see, I’ve been super busy but March is going to be my month, watch out world!!!
