1- how long have you been writing?
I first started writing my first novel 18 years ago.
2- Is there a certain genre you’d like to get into?
I love trying new things with my writing! I currently write YA sci fi and YA thriller, both of which I love, but I think it would be fun to write an adult novel or to try a new genre within the YA umbrella!
3- Who designed your (latest) book cover?
L.J. Anderson from Mayhem Cover Creations!
4- Where do your ideas come from?
Hmmm… the ether? Ha. Usually I’m just going along my life, and an idea will hit me!
5- If you weren’t a writer, what would you be doing?
Tough one. I think I will always be a writer, whether or not it is for publication, but I suppose if I weren’t writing, I would either be retired or I would go back to my first career as a lawyer.
6- Do you ever experience writers block? If so how do you get over it?
We all do, don’t we? I mostly just keep banging my head against the story until the words start flowing again.
7- How did you come up with your title?
Remember Yesterday is the second book of my Forget Tomorrow series, and the book concerns the past, so I knew that I wanted “Yesterday” in the title. And “Remember” just seemed to fit the story, as well as being the opposite of “Forget”!
8- what is your perfect writing spot?
On my recliner, typing on my cell phone.
9- What do you do in your free time?
Read, exercise, hang out with my kids, go out to dinner!
10-Anything you’d like to add?
Thanks so much for this interview
11- Do you write friends, family, or even strangers you met into your novels?
12- If you were a superhero what would your name be?
Thank you for the interview Pintip! I loved your answers!
I need to read “Forget Tomorrow” and “Remember Yesterday” I’ve been wanting to for a while now!
Well, Luvs, I hope you enjoyed this interview! it is the 10th interview!
The 11th interview (tomorrow) will feature: Amber Duell!
SEE YOU THERE, LUVS!
