Interview:
 
~ Can you share with readers your latest book/author news?


My latest release is honest to goodness one of my favourite books ever! WHEN HONEY GOT MARRIED... is an anthology written alongside fabulous bestselling authors Kimberly Lang, Anna Cleary and Kelly Hunter and we had THE best fun writing the thing.
 
 
Imagine a huge society plantation wedding in Louisiana, then throw in a bride on the edge, a lot of honeysuckle and a cast of characters who have no idea what's about to hit them! Love is in the air...will anyone be able to resist?
 

~ What's been the highlight of your writing journey?
Gosh! Too many to name. Selling my first book, seeing my first cover, holding my first book in my hands. Now, twenty-five books later, it's still a total thrill!
 

~ Where do you get most of your inspiration from?
All over the place. A line in a song, an overheard conversation, something funny that's happened to me. Some ideas truly spring from dreams. Many from photos of Joe Manganiello ;)

~ What is it you like about writing romance?
I've thought about writing other things - murder mysteries, shoot 'em up capers, young adult fantast - I have folders full of ideas! But honestly, put any of that against the chance to write about two people falling in love and there's just no choice!
 
~ Who is your favourite author and why?
For all time would be Dick Francis. I love his style, his cadence, I ADORE his heroes. I've read every book and could read them all again tomorrow. I'm currently loving Kristan Higgins books; joyous, delightful, funny, goofy, wonderful warm stories all.
 

~ What do you have in store for readers in the future? Any future releases?
 
After WHEN HONEY GOT MARRIED... I have a Harlequin KISS coming this August calledFAKING IT TO MAKING IT. It's the story of Nate, the best mate of the hero in my last book THE SECRET WEDDING DRESS. The guy was so smart, so wry, so earnest, so gorgeous, and so amused by his friend's tumble into love, I had no choice but to bowl Nate over just the same.

 
~ What's your advice for aspiring authors?
Write write write! Like anything the more you do it, the better you get. And the more you write, the closer you get to finding your voice, your groove, which is the most precious writing tool you have. Nobody in the world sees the world the way you do. Celebrate that, nourish it, unleash it!
 

~ Is there anything specific you'd like to say to readers?
Keep up the good work!
 

This or that?
Book store or book site?
 
Book sites...though sadly. The hours I've spent running my fingers along spines of books in Borders just imagining what delights awaited inside those covers... Alas it's a whole new world out there!
 

Paperback or eReader?
 
I read both. Though far more on my ereader these days. The convenience is wonderful, the ability to flit from the end of one book and straight into the next a magical portal for all we voracious readers out there!
 

Chocolate or Candy?
 
Chocolate!!! Specifically M&MS. Mmmmm.......
 
(I do not own image)
 
Night or day?
 
Night. Quiet, shadows, secrets, hush, mystery, sleep, dreams... And the kids are finally in bed!
 

Book or Film?
 
Oooooh... Here I honestly can't pick. I simply love a good story, no matter the medium. Tell me over a coffee and I'd be as enchanted by it as I would watching it on TV, or reading it in a magazine. I'll take my delight anywhere I can get it!
