SC: Tell us a little about yourself.
I never thought I’d be a writer, never mind a published author. But I used to continue stories in my head of my favorite characters from books, movies or TV. Then in 2008 I read a story that really annoyed me, so I tried my hand at writing and realized I loved doing it.
I of course love to read, go riding (horses), kayaking, drawing/painting—I’ve sold my artwork all over the world, but now I mostly just draw wolves, cats or dragons in honor of my characters. I now also make my own book covers along with pre-made covers for other authors, and love creating pretty covers. I’m also into Photography, and of course watching the TV shows & Movies that inspire me.
SC: Where does your inspiration come from in your books?
Everywhere! TV, movies, books, the darker the better, and of course my favorite most wonderful Authors: (Sherrilyn McQueen -formerly Kenyon, JR Ward, Nalini Singh, Gena Showalter, Faith Hunter, Patricia Briggs, Larissa Ione, Lara Adrian, Dianne Duvall, Christine Feehan to mention my top favs)
When I decided to write, vampires and werewolves were big, but I hadn’t heard of dragon shifters at that time, so I thought up characters (Sami and Jax were based on Sam and Dean Winchester at the time) that were immortal and could change into dragons IF they survive their change, and the Dracones were born.
SC: How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I’ve written 14, The Dragon Assassin’s Sunstryker is #13, and released Oct 27th. My 14th is Defiant Wolf; Curse Breaker. It will release in 2021.
It’s super hard to pick just one as my favorite since I love them all, but Dracones Thaniel (Kitty) is about a sweet abused leopard shifter who is rescued in my first book; Dracones Awakening, and he has touched my heart big time.
SC: Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? What makes them so special?
See answer above. Thaniel is pretty special, though most of my characters are. Most of them have issues, some pretty dark ones, or secrets… I write dark romance, and usually steamy. But I also have some fun ones, some you want to strangle, and some really quirky ones like Genna who I have a lot of fun writing about.
SC: What can we expect from you in the future?
I have so many books currently in the works. Defiant Wolf will release in 2021;
my current works in progress are:
