So a little about me. I wanted to be a romance author ever since I can remember. Lucky for me, years after I read my first romance (Harlequin Presents - No Gentle Possession by Anne Mather) my mother got a job at the Harlequin main office in Don Mills Ontario. Suddenly, I was flush with books.
But writing soon took a back seat to college and settling into my IT career. Then a couple years after my son was born, the itch returned ten-fold and I decided to enter Avon’s Fanlit writing contest. Before I knew it, I was trying my hand at writing a historical, which up to that point, I’d read but didn’t believe I could actually write.
A Whisper of Scandal was the first book I ever finished and it was published in 2010 by Kensington Publishing. And the rest, as they say, is history. I’m currently a full-time writer, although I still utilize my tech skills a lot. I also design covers and websites (designing covers is part of the author services I offer) and manage Smitten by Books Reviews website and blog.
My son is now a teenager and we recently relocated back to Canada (I should say I relocated back as this is my son’s first time living here) so I’m not quite settled yet. Don’t ask me where I’ll be when he goes off to college in a few years.
Some of my favorite authors right now are Vi Keeland, Lauren Layne, Sherry Thomas (historical romance), Lucy Parker, Tessa Dare, Elle Kennedy and Sarah MacLean. They’re all pretty much instant buys for me and I’m always on the lookout for more to add to the list.
I’m currently being represented by Kevan Lyon at Marsal & Lyon Literary Agency.
Q: Is Charlotte’s maid from An Heir of Deception going to get her own book?
A: I may write a novella for Jillian because she does find love as is hinted in Twice the Temptation.
Q: Is Graham’s roommate Blake going to get his own book since it looks like Forever With You is the last book in the series? Is it the last book in the series?
A: Blake will be getting his own book but I’m not sure whether I’m going to tack another book to the series or start a new one and make his book the first book in that one.
Q: Do you still plan to write adult contemporary romances?
A: Yes! Stay tuned.
Q: Why are you so slow? :(
A: I know, I’m not prolific at all. Last year (2018) in particular was a year of huge challenges and changes. I expect 2019 to be much more productive. And thank you so much for your patience.
Q: Do you plan on writing more historical romances any time soon? I’ve been waiting for A Wicked Temptation (Meghan and Rhys’ book) it seems like forever.
A: Absolutely. Actually, I plan to release two historicals this year. Meghan and Rhys’ book will come out this year.
Q: Is Emily’s friend Kelsey going to get her own book? And if so, will the hero be Alex, the guy she was going out with in Forever With You?
A: :) Yes Kelsey (and her twin sister Chelsea) will get their own books. Kelsey’s book will be titled Virgins Need Not Apply and will feature Alex as the hero. Chelsea’s love interest is going to be Trent, whom readers first met in The Trap and/or Trapped, and their book is titled Burned.
