What inspired you to write this book?
Ryker was the inspiration behind this book. I had this image in my head of a phone ringing and when he leaned over to check, it had a name on the screen. That name was Jenna's, a former lover of his. I knew his duty would be to track her down and eliminate her, and from there it simply spiraled into this rich universe that I can't wait to expand on.
Which character in your current book do you think readers will like the most? Why?
I think the readers will like Ryker the most. He's a man that is about to forswear his duty for a woman that abandoned him. Like all of us, he needs to deal with his emotions and decide for himself what is right and wrong.
Why do you write?
I've always loved telling stories. I love creating lush universes that enrapture the reader. To see them become so connected to something of your creation is amazing.
Who has helped you the most in your career as an author?
My husband has helped me the most. I've known him since I was 13 and he's been with me every step of the way.
When you write, what things do you want close at hand? (Coffee, water, chocolate... pictures of gorgeous hunks for inspiration...?)
Candy, oddly enough. Need a little sugary inspiration.
When you're not writing, what would we find you doing?
Depends on the season. I live in northern
Canada, so the weather makes a difference.
In the summers we spend our time rafting, camping, and hiking. In the winter, I
love to crochet (need scarves and hats to keep warm!). And of course reading is
a year round hobby.
Are you a plotter, or do you prefer to make it up on the spur of the moment?
I think I'm a little of both. For me, it usually begins as one scene or one specific image that I can't get out of my head and then I fill in the blanks from there when writing. Recently, I've begun to put together chapter layouts, if only for a little organization.
What's your writing schedule like?
I tend to feel more creative in the morning before work when I'm fresh-faced. My dreams are often inspiration for me, so I like to get it down before I forget. Usually before bed, I'll crank out a few pages as well. I've been known to jot some things down while on break at work too.
What other jobs have you held besides writing?
I've done retail while getting through school. After graduation, I've worked in the field of archaeology, and currently, I am a mapping technician.
What's the best gift you ever received?
Just this Christmas I received a set of focus crystals. I'd been having trouble focusing on my writing and I just thought it was an incredibly insightful gift.
What kind of music do you listen to while driving? Same question when writing?
While driving I need to listen to upbeat music. Anything that I can bebop to while singing at the top of my lungs (my poor husband!). As for writing, I need instrumental music. My playlists for that range from Epic Score to Yiruma.
Do you play any musical instruments?
Growing up I played the saxophone. Whether or not I could do so again, I haven't a clue.
What's your favorite movie?
Oh boy. This one is going to be a touch embarrassing. I'm a Disney fanatic. I watch them before bed most nights. And my favorite is Aladdin.
Are you the eldest, middle, baby, or only child?
I'm the baby with an older brother by 2.5 years.
