Although I loved my job as an elementary school teacher, I am now very blessed to be mommy to three adorable little boys and living my dream of being an author.
I have a vivid imagination and have always been easily entertained by the stories in my head. Fortunately, I also love to paint those pictures with words. I like writing a wide variety of genres, and my current book list includes everything from a Christian time travel / romance series, to an action-packed suspense, to a romance involving a woman who likes to anonymously play matchmaker.
Although I enjoy historical, Christian, paranormal, suspense, and everything in between, my books all have one thing in common–I love to surprise my readers with the unexpected. I currently have 7 books available for kindle, nook, and paperback.
My family and I live in a small Idaho town where the number of cows outnumbers the number of people.
Is this your first series or have you published before?
This was the first series I ever wrote, but I actually published my other series, “Tru Exceptions,” first.
Are you working on anything else?
I have a long list of books in my “To Be Written” pile. I have so many ideas in just about every genre, I don’t know that my lifetime will ever be long enough to turn them all into books, but I’ll do my best! I just published a romantic suspense novella entitled, The Assumption of Guilt, Now I’m currently working on Book 4 in the “Yesterday” series.
Do you have any advice for authors wanting to publish? (Why did you choose to go indie? If this applies – If not why traditional)
My only advice to other authors would be to read a lot. Before I wrote or published my books, I was a student of writing. I read books I liked by authors I admired, and I paid close attention to everything from the plot to sentence construction so I could observe what specific techniques work to create brilliant writing.
Thus far, I have chosen to publish my books independently. I made that decision because God seemed to be making it miraculously clear that was the direction He was leading. Through circumstance that can only be attributed to God, I met another author who is a very successful at publishing independently. Though I had previously known nothing about it, she coached me through publishing my first book and has become my very good friend. This also happened at a time when my husband was facing a serious back injury that required two surgeries. Publishing my books was both a dream come true and an answer to prayer. I have since come to appreciate the benefits of independent publishing: specifically, a higher royalty and full control of rights and artistic elements.
What is your favorite writing snack?
What gets you in the m to write?
Daydreaming. I don’t often get to write during the day. I’m a full-time mommy to three little boys. However, my imagination is always busy “working” on my current book or coming up with new story lines. After my mind has developed so many ideas during the day, I’m eager to get it all out through writing at night.
Who is your favorite character and why?
That’s a difficult question because I like all of my characters for various reasons. I tend to like creating real, complex characters in my books, and I love all of their problems and quirks. Hannah is probably my favorite, but more for her quirks than for what she accomplishes. I also like Wayne a lot because he’s so complex. I have favorite characters in my other books as well. In my “Tru Exceptions” series, I kind of wish I was more like the main character, Rachel, in real life. She’s pretty awesome!
Favorite book of all time?
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
What made you want to write this book?
Yesterday and The Locket were born as a birthday gift for my sister. As an avid reader, she was somewhat bored of the endless search to find truly great books. (She tends to be picky.) Partially in jest, she asked me to write her a good book. I had plenty of ideas, but my original plan was to write a short story she could read in one setting. I got an amazing idea, but after writing the story, my two sisters read it and wanted more. I was almost finished with those first two books before I realized the story wasn’t going to be over. What started as a story written for my sister has evolved into such a challenging, incredible story that I can’t not write it!
I think breakfast says a lot about a person, what is your perfect breakfast?
A warm, gooey cinnamon roll and hot apple cider!
Do you have a favorite period of time that you like to write about or would like to live?
I am very thankful to be living in the present time with all its modern achievements and technologies. However, I love historical fiction. I have a couple historical romances in the works, and though the research for them requires a lot of work, those are the ones I’m looking forward to writing the most. My favorite time period is probably the 1800s. Though that’s a very broad range, I love everything included in it. I like the Victorian age of England, the Civil War time period, and a good Oregon Trail / Western story. Although I would very much like to visit the 19th century, I wouldn’t want to stay. Fortunately, I have such a vivid imagination, I feel like I really do get to visit that time period every time I read or write a book. And then I get to come back to my comfortable house equipped with electricity and flushing toilets!
Please tell us in one sentence why we should read your book!
You should read this book for one moment . . . that moment when you finish a book, look around, and realize everyone is just carrying on with their lives, as though you didn’t just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a fictional story.
