1) What is your favorite genre to write?
Romance. That includes most of the sub-genres. PNR, BDSM Romance, Erotica Romance, Thriller Romances… I could go on and on. As long as someone falls in love in the story line, I’m all about writing it.
2) What one thing always reminds you of summer?
Fresh fruit, Icees, and dresses
3) Favorite color?
Pink! Lol I love all the different shades and hues. I wear something pink every day. Nothing extreme either.
4) Favorite ice cream flavor?
Ben & Jerry’s “Peanut Buttah”. I love peanut butter and this one has peanut butter cookie dough and pieces in it. It’s amazing!
5) Favorite summer romance movie?
I’d never considered this. Lol I actually typed in “Summer Romance Movies” and one of my favorites came up immediately. Dirty Dancing.
6) What is your favorite season/month?
Winter. There’s something about it that makes it magical. It’s not just the snow but it plays a huge part. People are a lot more giving, the decorations are all over, and the holiday spirit is good to see on people. 7) Do you prefer plotting or allowing the characters to drive the story?
The characters definitely drive the plot. At one point I was pretty sure I’d nailed how the scene was going to go but then it all changed with every keystroke. Even I was surprised about how certain parts of it went. Totally loved it.
8) What is your favorite scene from this story?
When they first meet on the highway. They challenge each other, and it was what sold me on writing the story. They’re witty and neither of them back down to the other’s demands. They’re pretty blunt about their demands and also charismatic. It’s what draws people into reading about them. Well that, and the sarcasm.
9) Which author in this set are you most excited to read?
All of them. Lol I know how different each and every one of them are and you get all of that wonderfulness in one place. I can’t wait to not only sit down and read them but to get the readers hooked.
10) What is your favorite word?
I have a few favorites including; clusterfuck, shenanigans, and rhetorical to name a few.
11) Describe your perfect sand castle.
I’ve never built one, but I imagine it to be huge with many compartments like a real castle. Maybe some cones for the tower tops. Plenty of windows. Water around and beneath it with a nifty bridge for the horses to ride in on.
12) What other projects are you working on?
I’ve just finished quite a few anthologies and I finally have the time to focus on finishing a solo project. The second official book in my Limits of Love Series, Tethered Trust. I’m really excited about this one because it challenges my boundaries as a writer. I’m also fallen in love with the couple and how they come together. Their chemistry is indescribable.
13) Which is more romantic, sunrise or sunset?
Though this kind of feels like a trick question, sunrise. The reason I say that is because I love how the sun peeks out and slowly makes its presence known. Lighting up the earth with it’s magical rays.
