Which country are you from?
In which genre/s do you write?
Contemporary Romance, but am planning a paranormal release within in the next year.
Published or not?
Written for Love
WIPs – What are you working on now?
A full length novel titled “Canadian Summer”. It’s the first in a four book series.
Why do you write?
I love it! Ever since I was a child, I wanted to write. I love creating worlds and telling the stories within them. I see reading as an escape, something that I find relaxing and exciting. As a writer, I hope to create the same for anyone that picks up my books.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Music. Music is such an important part of my life. I always have it playing at home, in the car, when I’m walking. My story ideas come from either a feeling or memory that was invoked by a certain song, or within the story of the song itself.
Any writing related tips you would like to share?
Find a critique group, beta readers, form an ARC team. I would also recommend joining Facebook groups, share social media links. Do everything you can to get your name out there. I didn’t do this for my first novel and now, as I’m preparing to release my second, I’m seeing just how valuable it is to make friends and connections to support you and share in getting your name and books out there to others.
Any advice for new writers?
Don’t stop! Writing can be a lonely and discouraging place. I would also recommend to find a group of writers that write similar to you or what you like to read and have them for support and to bounce ideas off of.
Anything else you would like to share about your writing or writing process?
It’s been a long journey, and one that was harder than I thought it would be! Just starting as a writer, I assumed you wrote the book and that was it! There is so much more to it. It’s been almost 8 years since I wrote my first book and it’s been a path of constant learning.
Tell us about any hobbies?
During the past year and a half with COVID, I’ve picked up a hobby of painting and redecorating. It started with a bathroom and resulted in almost the whole house being redone on the inside. I also enjoy walks, photography and reading.
A 1 year old German Shepherd named Chase.
Favourite music genre and/or artist?
Country, Pop, Rock.
Favourite TV series?
Friends and Gilmore Girls.
Fall. I love the changing of colours, cooler weather, pumpkin patches, hayrides.
What genre/s do you like to read?
I love to read all, but I would have to say contemporary.
What are you currently reading or what was the last book you read?
I am currently reading The Blogger Diaries by KD Robichaux.
Any book recommendations?
Anything by Claire Kingsley, Maddison Kate series by Tate James, and We’re Made of Moments by Molly McLain.
Do you have a favourite author?
Claire Kingsley. I love her ability to create towns and characters that make you feel like you are apart of it. Her books are always incredibly witty and sexy, and I know that I will always fall in love with every book I read of hers.
Anything else you would like to share about your personal life or interests?
I live on the west coast of Canada with my husband and 2 children. Writing has always been a passion of mine and I’m incredibly excited to share it.
