Twin sisters Ava and Hannah were ripped from their peaceful seeming lives into a whirlwind of attacks and war only to learn the real truth about their existence.
Nothing was as it seemed anymore and may never be again. They had already lost their father in childhood now they have to cope with their mother’s kidnapping as they watch those sworn to protect them risk their lives.
What is the hardest part of writing your books?
The hardest part of writing my books is finding the time! I have three young children and am also a full time teacher, so it’s all about scheduling and planning. I make time every night to write for at least an hour and dedicate most of my writing time to weekends and vacations. I really try my best to not let my writing take too much time away from my children, and make sure that when we are together, we are active and doing things, then lock myself away for a few hours while they play with each other or friends.
What songs are most played on your Ipod?
Right now I am listening to a lot of Imagine Dragons, The Civil Wars, Lorde, and Mumford and Sons. I have been finishing up the last book in the Secrets of Shadow Hill series, War of Wizards, and have also started working on the second book on a contemporary romance series I will have coming out this spring. Music is a major inspiration for me while I write.
Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
I have two critique partners that I work with that give me a second look and different perspective for my stories. I feel like it is so important to have a different point of view. I want to make sure that all the pieces are coming together clearly for my readers.
What book are you reading now?
I just started reading Dark Witch by Nora Roberts
How did you start your writing career?
I began my writing career when I decided to challenge myself and write a novel while on bed rest while pregnant with my twin daughters. I have always loved to write, but had never taken the time to actually write an entire novel. I just never thought I could actually do it. But when forced to do nothing my sit on my butt all day, I decided to make good use of my time, and let those pregnancy hormones take over and wrote the first draft of Always and Forever. After in sat in my computer for a year, my sister encouraged me to submit it to some publishers. I had a few offers and decided to sign a contract for my Secrets of Shadow Hill series with Center One Books. It has been an amazing experience and am so grateful for the opportunity to have my stories published.
The second book of my Secrets of Shadow Hill series, The Prophecy, was just released in November, which has been very exciting. I am looking forward to having the last book of the Secrets of Shadow Hill series, War of Wizards, our to my readers in the second half of 2014.I’ve also written a contemporary suspenseful romance, Dust to Dust (A Broken Fairy Tale) and am also looking forward to its rel
