1. Where do you write from?IE: State, City or Room

I often write either in my bedroom or kitchen on my PC, though I've been known to scribble ideas in notebooks or on my cell phone just about anyplace!

2. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I was a child when I knew I wanted to be a writer. Reading had always been my hobby of choice and I thought what better way to be employed?

3. How long does it take you to write a book?

It depends, some take longer than others but I am trying for one every few months. 

4. Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

I do a lot of research online or from other informative texts that I've collected over the years. Research is always important to me as I like to try and have as many facts as possible before I fall into fantasy with them.

5. When did you write your first book and how old were you?

I wrote my first book in my late twenties though it still remains unpublished, I published my first book about four years ago, Wolf Moon.

6. What do you like to do when you're not writing?

Family comes first with me, I have very active children and we are always doing something together or as a family, after that, I enjoy reading, cooking, and gardening despite my brown thumb!

7. What Genre do you write?

I write Paranormal Fiction in YA and Romance genres. All of my books take place in the same paranormal world that I call the Grazi Kelly Universe. Most are set in my home state of New Jersey, but each series can be read alone.

8. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

So far, I've written and published 21 books with more to come. My favorite will always be Wolf Moon, my first book, since that is where the Grazi Kelly Universe was created.

9. Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

I do have regular online chats with readers in my Facebook groups, other social media, and via email. The best way for a reader to tell an author they like their books is to leave a review of course! 

I have the best readers, they are always kind and supportive! I've had some tell me they enjoy my books thoroughly and I am always so pleased to hear from them!

10. As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I wanted to be a mother most of all, then a writer. Now I am both. <3 font="">

11. Tell us about your current project.

I am currently working on my additions to the Zodiac Shifters series which will be released in January and July of 2019. I also have a series called Paranormal Romance That Rocks that will begin with the December release of a boxed set of three stories of mine called Shifters Furever. That series will be followed up by three more books under the subtitle Paranormal Romance That Rocks. I also have book 3 in my YA series, The Agela Tanner Files, due out this fall.

12. How do you handle writers block?

I take a break and doing something fun like baking or going for a walk with one of our dogs.

13. What one subject is TABOO in your writing?

I don't think anything is taboo, but I certainly have my preferences. For example, I like HEA endings and powerful heroines and sexy heroes.

14. If there was one book you wish you'd written, which would it be?

I've never thought about this because I am writing what I want to - LOL. Interesting question though.

15. What is your biggest pet peeve?

I suppose I don't like it when I tell people I am a writer and they tell me that is so cute and they should be one too or they have the best story for me to write, etc...

16. Is there one current tv show that is a "can't miss" for you?

Believe it or not, I am currently going through Dynasty from season 1. I get in these moods where I binge watch older shows just to see the differences from then to now. Of course, I also enjoy watching newer shows like Game of Thrones, Animal Kingdom, The Good Fight, and so on.

17. Who was your greatest influence?

My greatest influence are my children, I want them to know they can accomplish anything they want in life and I want them to be proud of me, because of that, they make me a better writer.
18. How do you choose your book covers?

I do all of my own cover art except for Zodiac Shifters and Paranormal Romance That Rocks.

19. Something personal about you people may be surprised to know?

I am one of six sisters! ;-)
