What made you decide to become a writer?
It was either write or go mad from the stories swirling around in my head. LOL

Why are you attracted to the Regency period?
Before I was a writer, I read in a lot of genres but what I liked about the regency era novels was they were the ones that made me laugh out loud. It’s fun to write around the rules of what was considered proper 19th century behavior and see how far you can bend them.

Do you write when the muse strikes you or do you write every day?  Do you have a target? Writing is my full time job, but much as I’d like to write new words every day there is editing, blurbs, promotional posts to write too. When I…

What made you a writer?
Maria, at school, an English and History teacher, Mrs Bateman, told my dad that I had book writing talent.  I was regarded as  a good writer by my  Leaving Certificate English teacher.I didn't know at fourteen what genre I could devote myself to.   But this would reveal itself via time and thought.  I remember things that  influenced me as a child, like the horror/sci fi TV series V. This was an amazing programme.  I learnt that  if you want to devote yourself to a genre, that's cool, but you do not have to abort your interest in the history of the world that you live in. You actually can become a genre writer…

What made you decide to write?
I was a school counselor right out of college and also worked for the state as a therapist. Things were stressful to say the least. As a way to de-stress I started writing--and I haven't stopped since! I always have a story of some kind rolling around in my head. It doesn't feel like work for me. If anything, Im angry that I actually need to sleep!

What are your preferred genres for writing and re…

As this is your second book Carmen,  is it the same excitement, or something different this time? I don’t know if anything can ever match having your first book released into the big, bad world. Especially because, until its release, a lot of my friends and family didn’t know I was a closet writer. So, it wasn’t just a book debut, it was also me coming out of the writing closet. I received a lot of support, and it really moved me. That said, I’m extremely excited about Heating Up Hawaii. It has its own milestone because it marks t…
