Interview:

~ Can you share with readers your latest book/author news?
 
I have just finished the last read through of my latest contemporary romance 'Alter' and it is ready to launch. I'm just giving early reviewers the chance to read it and then it will be
uploaded.


~ Where do you get most of your inspiration from?

I get it from events that have happened to me, my friends, perhaps something on tv - I even had an idea while hanging the washing on the line one time! I find inspiration all around me.
 
~ What's the best thing about being an author?
 
Working in front of the television, wearing your pyjamas

~ Name one highlight of your writing journey so far?

Getting fan mail - it's so wonderful to open a message from someone who loved your work so much, that they just had to talk to you about it.

~ Who designs your book covers?

 
I do, but I run them by a friend who has a slightly better eye than I do.

~ What book are you currently reading and can you rate it out of 5?

I am currently reading 'Rock with me' by Kristen Proby - so far I'm loving it, so I'm likely to go with 4 or 5 stars at the end of it.

~ What advice would you give to aspiring authors?

 
Set yourself a writing goal and stick to it. Mine are usually daily word counts, I give myself a time limit on writing that first draft and then slow things down from there. Also, find a beta reader or critique partner who will be honest with you - you won't always want to hear it, but it's important to have someone who will tell you when your work isn't good enough.

~ Is there anything specific you'd like to say to readers?

 
I don't know how you all found me, but I am so glad you did! Thank you so much for enjoying my work! I love my job, and it's all a bit of a dream right now. A wonderfully incredible dream, that I hope never ends!

 
What do you think of the interview? Have you read any of the authors books?
