Hello, can you tell us a little about your newest book, Whispers in The Shadows?
Hi, Booktastic Reviews! Thanks so much for having me on your blog. Whispers In The Shadows is a paranormal romance anthology that contains five stories. It’s part of the Legends Unleashed series. Below is a teaser from each story.
Where did you get your inspiration?
Like all the titles in the Legends Unleashed series,Whispers In The Shadows was created from my love of paranormal romances and fantasy worlds where anything can happen. I strive to write plots that are well-developed, fast-paced and filled with unexpected twists. Whispers In The Shadows features strong, multifaceted female protagonists who transcend the ordinary to find a beautiful life. It’s definitely an escapist series inspired by imagination and boundless possibilities.
Do you need any necessities while writing?
I always use a pen and paper while writing. I rarely ever sit down with my laptop and just type because I find that anything but inspirational. I’d rather be outdoors in a peaceful surrounding, like on the dock at my cottage, at the beach or in my backyard. However, creating stories comes very naturally to me so I believe I could write in most situations.
If you could choose to spend a day with any of your characters, who would it be and why?
I would choose Forrester from my TV series, HarborBoys, because he is undoubtedly flawed but strives very hard to overcome the less than stellar circumstances he was born into. He is strong, both physically and mentally, ruggedly handsome and possesses a rational foresight that aids him when he’s inevitably put into difficult situations. I admire these traits and find Forrester to be an extremely multifaceted and interesting character. Since he is an avid outdoorsman, we would spend the day hiking and fishing.
Do you enjoy anything else apart from writing?
My biggest passion besides writing is the outdoors. I am addicted to the sun, sand and surf and could happily spend forever swimming or just lounging on the beach. I also love hiking and fishing – two activities I’ve done since I was young. Additionally, I love volunteering with non-profit organizations. It’s a huge passion of mine and something I take great pride in. It’s a beautiful thing to make a difference in someone’s life.
Are you working on another book right now? If so can you tell us a little about it?
I am currently working on edits for the remaining books in The Horror Diaries series. The next book, Creatures Of The Night, will be released June 2012. I have started writing Assorted Candies (an anthology of literary romance for teens) as well as two young adult paranormal romance novels entitled Siren and Fairy Dust. Additionally, I will shortly begin work on What Fairy Tales Are Made Of, which will include the last four volumes in the Legends Unleashed series. On the screenwriting side, I have written several short scripts that are scheduled to go into production in 2012. They include Too Sensible For Love – a dark romantic comedy with social commentary running throughout it, Love’s Folly – a romantic comedy that will keep viewers guessing until the end, and Circular – a chilling social commentary about war.
Remember to come back later!
