1-Tell the readers a little about yourself.
Thank you for inviting me to visit! I’m a veterinarian with a passion for writing fiction and a special love for archaeology, especially anything Egyptian. Although my past has taken me on field expeditions into rain forests, I’ve never had a chance to visit a hot sandy country and see a working archaeological dig site. It’s a goal. And I’m good at goals.
2-As an author, do you take time to read? If so, what do you like to read and who is/are your favorite author/s?
I love to read, but I don’t get a lot of time to do so anymore. Sometimes, I’ll have time to pick up a new book, but if I’m awake with free time, I want to be writing. I love paranormal romance, but also action contemporary fiction. Some favorite authors that come to mind include Linda Howard, Christine Feehan, Rick Gualtieri, and Sandra Brown.
3-How do you stay motivated when the Muse is uncooperative?
If I ever find myself mentally doing mud-spit wheels turns, I’ll move on to a different project until the idea surfaces as to where a stalled story is headed. So far, it’s always worked out.
4-If you could go anywhere in the world on a romantic getaway, what would you do and where would you go?
Egypt (in non-conflict time). What a dream to take a cruise down the Nile and visit all the major sites.
5-What is the hardest thing for you to write?
When I first started writing romance, I found love scenes tough. But now I don’t fight it. I just let them flow as any other scene would. I don't let the subject matter hinder me. My job as a writer is to put what’s in my head on the page as faithfully as I can. That includes the love scenes.
6-If you could live the life of one of your characters who would you be?
Kira. Who wouldn’t want to be an adrenaline junkie good at handling weapons with a cousin that drags her on black market art deals? And have a secret magical ability to heal by touch, which propels her towards a mind-blowing relationship with the world’s hottest, yet tormented hero?
7-The tag line on my blog is ‘Indulge Your Inner Romantic.’ What do you do to indulge?
Pop the cork on a bottle of Conundrum and turn on the gas fireplace. Then…see what happens.
