What are your main characters' names, ages, and occupations?
Kaitlin Sincair, 17 Graduating high school. Cadmon Quinn 23 leader of his people.


The clearing fell silent as a man with shaggy, dirty blond hair which reached his shoulders, approached with a wide, purposeful stride. His shoulders were back, head held high and chest out. Piercing green eyes zeroed in on her.
Kaitlin inhaled a sharp breath and felt as if his eyes stared through to her soul. She shifted on the balls of her feet, and licked her bottom lip.
Ean's body went rigid. A look of caution crossed his face as the man approached them.
"Evening," the stranger greeted with a lazy drawl. His eyes never left her face. "Who is this exquisite young lady?"
His eyes settled on Ean's hands on her hips. To Kaitlin's chagrin her cheeks heated.
"Why are you here?" Ean moved Kaitlin closer to his body.
She braced her hands on his chest and gasped. "Who's this?" She pulled back.
"Cadmon Quinn, madam." He bowed. "It's a pleasure to meet you." He grabbed her hand and brushed a kiss on the back of it.
Her eyes widened. Butterflies brushed inside her stomach.
"Smooth." She slipped her hand free and rubbed it down the side of her dress to stop the tingles and shake off the electric jolt.
"She's charming." A corner of his mouth tilted. "Perhaps she will save me a dance?"
"She has a name." She removed Ean's hands from her hips and then turned to face Cadmon. "It's Kate. Use it." She raised her chin and planted her hands on her hips.
"Call me Cade." He flashed an amused smile.
"What do you want?" Ean stepped between them and squared his shoulders.
"Couldn't resis introducing myself to your lovely cousin."
Cadmon sidestepped Ean with a smile, and then twirled his forefinger through one of her banana curls. "Interesting choice." he gave it a loght tug. Her pulse quickened.
"I won't let you, or my father put her through anything else." Ean took Kaitlin by the elbow and stormed away.
She glanced back at Cadmon, who continued to watch her as he swaggered over to the elders, and picked up a tall glass of red wine. He saluted her with the drink, then sipped.
Kaitlin swallowed and turned around to break the eye contact. Was he a natural charmer, or was it an act? She hadn't seen him talk to anyone else, so maybe he was the silent type?
Ean pressed a cool glass against her hand.
"What did you mean?" Her gaze locked with his as she sipped the fruity drink.
His brow rose.
"Why would they want to hurt me?" She took another sip.
"He and Father are not on friendly terms." Ean scowled and sipped his glass.
"Why so defensive?" She placed her glass on the table and rested her hands on her hips.
Ean placed his glass down and grabbed her by the arms. "He's dangerous, and will only bring you trouble."
Cadmon appeared harmless, but the sheer magnetism of the man told her otherwise. What interest would he have in a girl like her? Was he one of those rich playboys? She frowned.
"Hungry?" Ean's fingers relaxed around her arms.
"I'm going to take a walk." The thought of food made her stomach queasy.
"Stay on the path, Katie." He frowned. "Want some company?"
"I need to clear my head." She walked along the small dirt path that led over to the river. Inhaling the damp air she sat, and tucked her dress beneath her.
She closed her eyes and allowed her fingers to glide through the cool liquid, wishing she could peel off her dress and swim.
Her eyes opened and she frowned at her reflection. Laneca would give her a serious earful if she saw how heavy the bags were under her eyes.
"You shouldn't be here alone." Cadmon held out a plate of food.
"I shouldn't be here at all." She stared at the food, then looked away.
"You need to eat." He passed her the plate and a glass of wine.
"Why are you so interested in me?" She sat the drink and plate on the grass.

She's a teenager who lost both parents and tries to make the best of her horrible situations. She's also ready to start her first big adventure.
Why do you write?
Because it's as necessary as breathing. I'm not happy unless I'm writing.

A nice steamy cup of green tea {preferably with mango and sweetened with honey} and some music to set the mood I'm trying to create.
When you're not writing, what would we find you doing?
Amatuer belly dancing, teaching Kung Fu, or hiking with my family.
When an idea hits you, what do you do to capture it?
Pull out my notebook and penand jot it down, or boot up my lap top and type it down.
What other jobs have you held besides writing?
Waitressing as a teen, cashier, cook, house cleaning, care taking, teaching Kung Fu, yard work, editing, stocking, fast food.
What's the best gift you ever received?
True friendship and true love.
If you could time travel what era would be your first stop?
Back to the days of the Native Americans. I'd love to live off the land and not worry about money. :P
What's your favorite movie?
Depends. Are we talking romance, action, comedy? Romance is Princess Bride or Ruyard Kipling's Jungle Book. Action is Gone in Sixty Seconds with Nicholas Cage. Comedy is Mrs Doubtfire with Robin Williams.
Are you the eldest, middle, baby, or only child?
Eldest of four.

Please complete the sentence

I love pizza with tomatoes, extra cheese, and lots of meat.
I'm always ready to turn on the music, when my speakers cooperate.
When I'm alone, I do a lot of deep thinking. Not always a good thing, but it keeps me realistic.
If I had a halo it would be a blinding mix of white and yellow.
If I could change anything I'd leave it alone, because every trial we overcome makes us stronger and shapes us into who we were meant to be.
I can never change the past because any changes made would reflect on the future.
