1.Tell us about your current project.
I have a Kindle World project that’s with the formatter now. It will be part of Cat Johnson’s Hot SEALs World. 

2. What sparked the idea for this project?
I saw Cat Johnson at a conference in August and she invited me to write in her Kindle World. I’d already been tossing the idea for the book around in my mind and decided it’d be a perfect fit.
2a: When can we expect to see this project?
I’m not sure. I’ll send it in when the final formatting is finished. Then it’s up to Amazon.

3.  How do you choose your book covers?
I always seem to know the cover I want when I see it. My KW cover was perfect and needed no tweaking.

I listen to a mixture of music when I write. I do have a tendency to stick with county and 70’s songs.

5. How do you handle "writers block"?
I try not to stress about it and know it will pass.

Pretty much any author who has ever written romantic suspense.

Don’t we all?
