Lightening Round

Favorite snack or food to eat while writing.

Black liquorice or popcorn.

Romance or horror?


Pick your poison: cover bands, B-movies, or You Tube parodies.


Serious Round

Has anything you've dreamed found its way into your book?

Absolutely. I hate the idea that there are too many unsolved cold cases and missing children out there. My protagonist hunts serial killers and finds missing children as a vigilante detective. I've had dreams about this, which has resulted in tense situations you can read about in my series.

Why do you write in your chosen genre?

I prefer writing thrillers because I LOVE to outsmart the bad guys and put things right. There is nothing more exciting than taking a wild ride on a rollercoaster, with plenty of twists and turns, and end up with a very satisfying ending.

Wacky Question

If you could have a cartoon character come alive for one hour, who would it be, and why?

I find that I'm a bit too serious and have a tendency to write about dark subjects. I would like to hang out with SpongeBob SquarePants for an hour, so that he could teach me not take life not so seriously. I want to know his secret to being happy all the time.
