1 Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, hobbies, pets, etc).
I’m a wife, and mother to two active boys. When we get occasion to, the family can be found bumping around in our four wheel-drive, or checking out a classic car or hot rod show. In my own downtime, I escape to the gym for a session with the weights. We’ve got a dog that is my writing buddy, always curled up where I am. Other than that I’m a bit of a heavy metal music lovin’, petrol head, with a soft spot for chocolate and coffee!
2 How did you get into writing and why romance?
I’ve written in some form since I was in primary school; poems, short stories, or real-life pieces that helped me deal in some tough times. But back then there was no such thing as self-publishing, so I shelved the idea of being a writer as a pipe dream and went into office work, started a family, etc. Shortly after my first born came along, I read a copy of Fifty Shades that was loaned to me by a friend and that sparked my curiosity. I learnt about the relatively new world of indie publishing and the rest is history. I always thought I’d write thrillers, but I think I mixed my love of suspense in with romance because of the idea that no matter how broken or scarred you are, there’s somebody out there who’s your perfect match, even if they themselves aren’t perfect.
3 Do you ever re-enact the sex scenes you write about?
*blushes* Uh *looks to see who’s listening* Let’s just say a few of them would be awkward to re-enact setting wise since I’m not married to a biker or a hitman 😉
4 Name a romance book or series you would love to see as a movie/TV Series.
Either Madeline Sheehan’s Undeniable series, or Tillie Cole’s Hades Hangmen would make for good TV viewing.
5 Have you ever read a book based solely on its cover?
Totally. I’m an unashamed cover whore.
6 What is your ideal way to end a long day?
Wine, settled kids, hubby by my side, and either a good book or my favourite TV show.
7 Describe your ultimate holiday.
Touring Canada, or USA, or both. I’ve never been over that side of the world, and it’s definitely on my bucket list.
8 Who is your favourite book boyfriend and why?
Ooo, that’s hard. I love the damaged ones. Names that come to mind off the bat are: Ripper from Madeline Sheehan’s Unbeautifully, Flame from Tillie Cole’s Soul’s Unfractured, and Kick from Carmen Jenner’s book of the same name. BUT, the guy who’s stolen my heart completely is my own Sawyer from Devil May Care and the upcoming Tormented. That psychopathic, broken biker just hooked me from the minute he first appeared at the end of my fingertips and I just love him to pieces, no matter what he does.
9 What turns you on and what turns you off?
On: A wild side, strength (physical and emotional), tattoos, uniforms!, humour, and selflessness.
Off: Arrogance, bullying, selfishness, and that God-awful skinny short-walk sock-flat shoe combo some guys have going on.
10 Boxers or briefs? Or commando???
11 Who is on your top five “Freebie List”? (do you remember Ross from Friends with his laminated list of 5 women he would love to sleep with??)
I’m laughing so hard at this! Um, Travis Fimmel *sigh*, Johnny Depp (even after the whole dog smuggling fiasco), Stephen James, Billy Huxley, and a new model that Amo Jones introduced me to, Kaz Vanderwaard (seriously, look him up).
12 You have a table booked for four in your favourite restaurant. Who would you invite to join you?
Dead or alive? I’ll go with alive. Stephen King, Tom Hanks, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. (Assuming the fourth seats for me!) I’d pick their brains for hours.
13 How can our readers connect with you? Facebook, Goodreads, Amazon, Twitter, etc.
