Did you always want to be a writer?
I’ve always loved to write, but didn’t have a lot of time while raising my three children, so it’s been wonderful to return to my passion now that they’ve all grown. Writing isn’t really a choice, it’s something I must do, it pours out from my heart onto the page!
What inspires you to write?
I believe in writing stories with positive messages that lift up and encourage youth but are also fun and exciting to read. My faith in God, my desire to share His love, are what inspire me to write for young adults.
Do you have a daily writing routine/schedule?
I write every night with a goal of about 3,000 words per week. Some days are more productive than others.
What is the current Book you are promoting?
Makai Queen just released a few months ago and it’s the first in a trilogy of stories about the undersea world of Moku-ola, a place unknown to surface dwellers, where man and beast live in harmony….well almost. With sharks, ruled by a power hungry lunatic, a kingdom in turmoil and a heroine struggling to figure out her place in the world, the adventure never stops! I’ve already finished the second book, so look for it soon!
Can you describe your main character for us?
In Makai Queen, readers will follow Tessa as she’s kidnapped off the beach and taken to an amazing undersea world where her very survival is threatened and she must overcome her own self- doubt to discover the keys to her royal destiny. Tessa finds love, courage and the strength to forgive as she accepts who she was created to be.
