What is something unique/quirky about you?
I used to play the clarinet in middle school. I was really good at it. I also wanted to be a news reporter and did a news show for a local public access channel when I was in college.
What are some of your pet peeves?
People chewing with their mouths open and leaving trash in my car.
What inspired you to write this book?
Just Right is a novella that is part of one of my series, Something Just Ain’t Right. I did the series over two years ago, and I figured I should write an update on the main characters of the series. It felt good to go back and write about how the couple in the series changed over the years and what they have accomplished after everything that has happened after the series ended. I think the readers of the series were also happy to read about how much the characters have changed and just to see how they are adjusting to life now.
What can we expect from you in the future?
I just wrapped up the third book, How Deep Is Your Love, from my current series, The Love Chronicles. This book is a romance/new adult novel that is a continuation of the main couple in the series. The story is an emotional roller coaster that readers will experience. I know I did while writing the story, so I know readers will feel the emotions throughout every scene.
Where were you born or grew up?
I was born and raised in Houston, TX.
If you knew you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
I would spend my last day with my family, and I would do all of the things that I would love to do, including bowling (if I can), going to the beach, and watching the sunset.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
I mainly listen to music to unwind. When I do, I’ll just put my earbuds in, lay back and just relax. Shopping also helps too, lol.
How to find time to write as a parent?
Writing when you’re a parent can be a challenge, lol. My son is 10, so I try to balance everything on a daily basis. I would usually write when he’s asleep, or on my days off from work. When I have a huge deadline, I would either try to write while I have some downtime at work. That way, I wouldn’t have to worry about writing as much when I go home.
What advice would you give new authors?
My advice to new authors is to never give up on your dream. There will be critics and naysayers that will criticize your work, but don’t let that discourage you. Also, write because you love to do it, and not for the fame or money; because believe me, sometimes writing is not all it’s cracked up to be. You must have patience and thick skin to be in this industry; if you do it for the wrong reasons, then you shouldn’t be doing it at all.
How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing for about 27 years since I was 9, but I have been a published author for four years.
