What genre do you write?
I write primarily paranormal but dabble in contemporary romance.
Can you tell readers a little bit about yourself and do you read the same genre as you write?
I was a reader of paranormal romance long before I wrote it. My favorite author is Christine Feehan but Lori Handeland is a close second. Now that I write PNR, I won’t read whatever I’m writing. For example, at the moment I’m writing one of my Dragons Rising books, so I won’t read any dragon shifters by other authors. Actually, I’ve never read a book with a dragon shifter before because I wanted to keep my world as unique as possible.
What inspired you to write in this particular genre?
I love the Dark series and Ghostwalkers by Christine Feehan, so you could say I was inspired by her work. I created the Amoveo Legend series because it’s something that I would like to read about. I love shifters!
Where are you from?
I live in Westchester County about 25 minutes outside NYC. I grew up in Connecticut and went to college in New York, which is where I met my husband.
Is there a character that you enjoyed writing more than any of the others?
My favorite heroine is Kerry Smithson. She’s the heroine in UNTOUCHED (Amoveo Legend #2) and she makes an appearance in all of the other books in the series. She’s feisty and tough but has a big heart. She’s also a plus-sized model and if this series ever hits the screen, model Ashley Graham would be perfect for the part.
Do you have a special formula for creating characters’ names?
Not really. Sometimes I’ll use family surnames but usually it just kind of comes to me.
Was one of your characters more challenging to write than another?
Yes! The hero in UNDISCOVERED (Amoveo Rising #1) is a cursed dragon shifter who’s been cursed and trapped in his human form for the past five centuries. It was challenging to introduce the dragon clan’s world because he is stripped of his powers for most of the book.
What is your motto?
If you don’t ask the question then the answer is always no.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Donuts. I love donuts. Why can’t they be calorie free?
If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I’d love to meet my grandmothers when they were younger. Before they got married and had their families, you know? I think it would be really cool to see what they were like in their early twenties.
Tell us your latest news?
Book 1 in the Amoveo Rising series, UNDISCOVERED, will be released in March 2017 and book 1 in Dragons Rising series will be out in the fall of 2017. Amoveo Rising is a two book bridge series that will connect my Amoveo Legend to the forthcoming Dragons Rising series. I’m really excited to expand this world and introduce readers to these fiery shifters!
