How did you get your start in the industry?
I started writing about three years ago after I had an amazing dream. That was how my epic fantasy 'Kainan' came about, and I have been having these dreams/images and writing ever since.
If you could change something about your first book, what would it be?
I think I would probably split it into two parts, as it is quite a big book!
What do you enjoy most about writing?
Bringing characters to life that would not had lived without you. As I write about them, they become so real, so intriguing, and I love it!
If you could give the younger version of yourself advice what would it be?
To take a steady breath and do not rush. Absorb as much help and advice as you can, and ask for it too. Some of the facebook groups I now belong to have some great people on them, and I have learned so much through them. In general, other authors are happy to help, support and offer you advice.
What is your work ethic when it comes to writing?
Just to enjoy it. I do not set a timescale, I write as it flows and I tend to have at least two stories on the go at once, so I can break from one, if I need too.
How do you cope with stress as an author?
I do not find being an author stressful; it is all the other stuff! Advertising and trying to get your book out there to the public, as it is so difficult. I find a bar of dairy milk also helps!
Do things your family or friends do ever end up in a book?
Erm, yes, but don't tell them! In truth, my characters Kainan and Arweyn in my fantasy trilogy, are a lot like my husband and I, soul mates and best friends.
After a few glasses of wine, and some giggles with my sister-in-law, I promised her I would write her an erotic, sexy, heartwarming romance book, and so here, it is, Divorced, Free, and Single.
What are some jobs you've done before (or while) you were a writer?
My line of work is secretarial and administration. I have taken this year off to finish my trilogy, which went so well that I have had time to write Divorced, Free, and Single.
Which of your books would you recommend to someone who doesn't normally read your genre, and why?
I definitely think if you are new to fantasy, then to check out my trilogy, The Deragan Sword Prophecy ~ it is a nice, romantic adventure fantasy that is not too deep or dark.
What kind of books do you read when taking a break from your own writing?
Anything and everything, I am currently reading and enjoying Jackie Weger's Beyond Fate
What was the proudest moment of your life so far?
Seeing my children grow into happy, responsible young adults. For myself, opening that delivery box and seeing my first book in print ~ you cannot describe how great it feels.
What is your favorite holiday and why?
Disneyland Paris ~ We try to go every two years as a family, it was the only time when my girls were younger that we managed a holiday without any squabbles! Everyone just loves it, but we only go at Christmas time, as we are a real Christmas, twinkly light family.
What do you like to do when you're bored?
Bored! I do not have time for bored! I write, read, paint, bake, and walk the dogs ~ and somewhere in between there I have my teenage daughter and my young son, as well as my husband. There is no time to be bored!
If your life became a movie, who would you want to play you?
Kate Beckinsale ~ She is gorgeous, and I would like to pretend I had her figure.
Please underline which statement is more like you:
"I am a vacation spa because I am laid back and relaxed."
"I am a ten-countries in ten-days tour vacation, because I do things as fast as possible."
Please complete the sentences
I love pizza with coleslaw.
I'm always ready for bed (don't know why I said that!)
When I'm alone, I dream.
You'd never be able to tell, but I am completely bonkers.
If I had a halo it would be spinning above my head.
If I could teleport, I'd go and see my mum in
I can never give up because I am determined.
