who are your biggest influences
I’m in awe of the character layering seductiveness of Cherry Adair, the fresh new worlds of Jacquelyn Frank, and the humor of Sandra Hill.
What is your biggest inspiration when creating?
I often ask myself the question, “What if….” If I’m wondering how to move a scene, or when to add an additional minor character, I’ll ask myself that question and see where the answer leads me.
Could you give us the details of your current project?
I’m getting ready to release a short story. It’s a spinoff from Remedy Maker titled Portal of Oz. Here’s my book blurb:
Abelia, a Boronda Forest Wood Nymph, goes to the small town of Willow Bay to satisfy her curiosity of human life, and finds more than she bargained for.
An archeologist named Jack can’t wait to leave Pennsylvania and return to his work in Australia, where life is filled with dingos and roos.
Human hunters stalk the enthralling Abelia, and an unknowing Jack comes to her rescue by creating a ruse of helping her choose a bonsai from a street vendor. The hunters back off, but she suddenly vanishes, and Jack is left confused as he returns to his home in the Outback.
…then she suddenly shows up in his kitchen.
I’m also working on Book Two of the Centaur series tentatively named Troll-y Yours. The story involves a Centaur side character with a huge ego named Aleksander, originally introduced in Remedy Maker. He meets the only mythic female in the Boronda Forest who isn’t fazed by his charms and good looks, and whoo-boy the sparks fly!
What is the next goal you would like to achieve with your writing?
After Troll-y Yours is published, I would like to finish a time-travel romance I started a few years ago. It’s about a modern day girl who meets a 200 year old marshal that was brought forward in time through a vortex in a cave.
Final four (questions we ask all interviewees)
When the zombies take over the world where will you be?
My friends and family will be locked in the largest shopping center in the world where we’ll have access to enough freeze dried and canned food to last a lifetime. Also, we’ll be able to protect ourselves because of the guns and ammunition sold in the super center! I just hope we’ll have enough toilet paper to last…
Jedi, Ninja, vampire, were-wolf, pirate, fairy or Spartan?
A blood-sucking vampire Jedi-Ninja, who captains his own pirate ship as he chases down Spartan fairies! But in choosing only one, I’ll pick the one with the magical powers, a fairy.
What one piece of art, be it music, book, film or picture, do you think people must experience before they die?
I was fortunate to have seen the Bolshoi Ballet in Los Angeles, California, and I will never forget the moment. From dressing to the Nines, lobby cocktails, and seating to watch the show in the balcony section. It’s something everyone should experience.
Give one fact that most people would not believe about you?
I had my first date in college.
