Where did you get the inspiration for your Connected series?
I’ve always followed Hollywood gossip, I’ve always found it interesting seeing bits and pieces inside of the rich and famous and thought it would be fun to write inside of that world.
Was your story the way you envisioned it from the start?
Kind of, there were some plot points that I considered changing up but ultimately felt how things turned out to be the best for the story,
Did you think to change direction at all? And if so what would have been the outcome?
I entertained the idea of getting Luke and Alexia together and him “taming” her, but I don’t know. In the end it just didn’t feel right.
What are your plans for future books outside of the Connected Series?
I’m currently writing another college romance book, Because of Us, as of right now, I think it will be a stand alone.
Did you always want to write in the Romance genre?
I actually started writing on a paranormal book before I started on Reconnected but got a bad case of writers block on the story and put it aside, I might revisit in the future.
How long did it take you to write Reconnected and Disconnected?
I started writing Reconnected in February and finished it at the end of April. Then started writing Disconnected in May and finished it in July.
Which of your characters is your favorite and why?
I think Kate and Krista are my favorites because they remind me of me and my best friend, there’s a lot of me in Kate and some of my best friend in Krista. It’s easy to relate to them for me.
What advice do you give someone starting out?
Don’t give up. Don’t let those automated rejection letters from publishers make you think it’s not worth it, because it is. Chances are someone out there will love your book if you put it out there.
What is the hardest part of writing for you?
Getting stuck on a part of the story and having to figure out how to get to where I want it to go.
Has your husband always been supportive of your writing?
He has! When I first started on Reconnected I didn’t even tell him because I wasn’t sure I was even going to finish it. But once I felt more confident with it, I let him read it and he has been a big encouragement and supporter.
