1.Tell us about your current project.
Well….I’m in the midst of several!! LOL. My Magic and Mayhem Kindle World comes out October 19th and thirteen fabulously talented authors are writing in it! Also Magically Delicious (Book 4 in the Magic and Mayhem Series) is up for pre order and I have started writing Were Me Out (Book 4 in the Shift Happens Series) It’s Junior’s book and it’s gonna be fun!

2. What sparked the idea for this project? 
My readers have been asking and I adore Junior. It’s time for his story!

2a: When can we expect to see this project?

3.  How do you choose your book covers?
I work with Rebecca Poole and she crawls inside my head and we make brilliance together!!! I am very involved and Rebecca is wildly creative. It’s a match made in Heaven!

4. Music seems to influence a lot of authors, what are your musical influences, if any?
I don’t listen to music when I write—too distracting for me. However, I do listen to get me in the right head to write. I like Pink, Imagine Dragons, Journey, Prince, Maroon Five, AC DC, Bon Jovi and many more. Sometimes I listen to movie soundtracks. It depends on the mood I want to get in as to what I listen to before I write.

5. How do you handle "writers block”?
I don’t get writers block. If I feel stumped, I know I took a wrong turn in the story. I just backtrack to where it feels write and go from there.

My parents.

No, not really. But most of my heroes are loosely based on my husband.

14. Is there one, current, tv show that is "can't miss" for you?
No, I really don’t watch much TV.

To the moon.
