As we gear up for this amazing event, I’ll be bringing you author interviews so you can get to know the attending authors in more detail! There are lots and lots of authors for you to discover, not to mention, hundreds if not thousands of books! Why not grab a cuppa and sit back and relax! All while hearing more about our writers and their writing lives, inspirations – and maybe even a secret or two!
Tell me which genre or trope you are most well-known for writing.
What is one thing people don’t know about you?
I’m a Scorpio through and through—loyal to a fault, passionate, and probably a little bit psycho.
Name a book you’ve written that you wish more people had read, and why.
Heathens. I just had so much fun writing it. But that series doesn’t get the love (I think) it deserves.
Is your desk/writing space tidy or messy?
Has to be tidy, otherwise I can’t focus. I’m generally a messy person, but my writing space has to be clean.
Are you an introvert or extrovert? Or something else…?
I’m an introvert. I can socialize but then I need some time to decompress.
What is your advice to authors just starting out?
Just keep writing. Nothing happens unless you have a book in your hand. That’s the only thing you can truly control, too. So just keep writing.
Where is your favourite place to go on holiday?
England, LOL. It’s why we moved here!
Your favourite place to read and/or write?
Bed, at night. I love falling asleep while reading.
What did you always want to be when you were growing up?
If writing is your full-time job, have you ever been told to get a “proper job”?
Yes, and I did for five years while I built my writing business up. I just left my day job in April!
Who is your biggest cheerleader?
My husband. He’s just the best, and so supportive. I would not be doing this without him, because he watches the kids and helps around the house. I’m a lucky duck.
