1.Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, hobbies, pets, etc).
I live in rural Tennessee with my husband, two English Mastiffs, one mutt, and a very large horse with a diva complex. When I’m not writing, I’m normally riding my horse (I’ve ridden since I was six years old) or playing video games with my husband (Far Cry, Call of Duty, Halo).
2. How did you get into writing and why romance?
Since I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I started writing my first book, The Hunted One, many, many years before I actually published it. I would write off and on, find myself stuck in a plot hole, and take a break. But I could never give the story up. I often say that I literally grew up with the characters from THO and it’s true. In 2013, I got married at the age of twenty-three, and I really focused on the finishing the book. Then in 2014, I took a leap of faith and started writing full-time. As for the romance element in my books, I write stuff that I would want to read. As a reader, I LOVE these sweeping stories of romance and the lengths we will go to for the ones we love. I think readers love romance so much because romance has the power to truly move us. These books make readers feel so much by connecting to this basic, inherent desire we all feel to be loved and experience love. There’s nothing better in the world than a book with a captivating, heart-pounding romance.
3.Do you ever re-enact the sex scenes you write about?
Holy cow, no. To write my sex scenes, I have to have a few glasses of wine and really loud music blaring in my ears so I can’t hear my thoughts telling me how ashamed my mother would be of me. I’m still learning how to write sex scenes. I believe they’re the hardest type of scene to write. Maybe once I get better at them, I’ll re-enact them. Maybe. Geez, I’m blushing right now. Are these questions supposed to make me blush? I’m the most squeamish romance writer you’ll ever meet. I blame my Southern Baptist upbringing.
4. Name a romance book or series you would love to see as a movie/TV Series.
The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson! The story in it is a romantic reincarnation type tale, but it’s so much more than that. It’s just amazing and beautiful and it would make the perfect movie. If you haven’t checked it out, I highly recommend you do. Holy crap, it’s good. Also, the Hades Hangmen Series by Tillie Cole. Those books will rip your heart out and leave you begging for more.
5. Have you ever read a book based solely on its cover?
Too many to count! I’ll just browse bookstore shelves and pick up certain books because of their cover. If I like the blurb, I’ll buy them. It’s a really great way to discover new books you wouldn’t have tried before. I’ve found some of my favorite reads this way.
6. What is your ideal way to end a long day?
My husband and I have recently started using the Blue Apron subscription service. So we’ll cook together in the evenings with a good bottle of wine and some great music blaring. It’s the best.
7. Describe your ultimate holiday.
Going to Bora Bora and staying in one of those huts over the water. It looks like sheer bliss. I would read while on one of those hammocks suspended over the water. It looks epic.
Who is your favourite book boyfriend and why?
Zsadist from the Black Dagger Brotherhood books. His story is just so beautiful and I love him so much.
8. Boxers or briefs? Or commando???
9. Who is on your top five “Freebie List”? Who could you sleep with that your partner won’t mind? (Remember Friends TV Episode with Ross & Rachel)
Technically my husband and I have never talked about this, but Michael Fassbender would have to be on this list or me and the hubs would have problems.
10. You have a table booked for four in your favourite restaurant. Who would you invite to join you?
I’m assuming we can invite book characters. I would invite Celaena from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas because this series is my favorite of all time and Celaena is just amazing. This is probably pretty egotistical of me, but I would invite Ollie from my Fear University series because I just desperately want her to be real so we can be best friends. After that, I would invite Harry Potter and Johannes Cabal from Jonathan Howard’s Johannes Cabal the Necromancer series (another really great read! Not much romance though, you’ve been warned).
