 Welcome Carrie!

Hi Julie! Thank you so much for having me here today!!
How are you doing today?
I’m doing fantastic and ready to for the world to read Justin and Rina’s Christmas story!

Can you tell us a little about yourself?
 I’m a twenty something ex-Chemist and teacher who spends way too much time working on romance novels. Love it though!

What kind of books do you write? Do you have a favorite genre?
 I’m a paranormal romance author. I love making up my new worlds and breaking into my new rules. As for reading, I love reading contemporary. Yes, I’m weird! LOL

You have a new book coming out.....Can you tell us a little bit about the series? the Book?
 The Holiday, Montana series is a five book series about the Cooper Brothers where each book centers around one Cooper and one Holiday. I have Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s’ day and a couple more. Since its paranormal, my holiday myths will be alive and well. Yep, you get to meet Santa in this one!
Santa’s Executive is about a Justin’s place in the world of Santa and elves. He’s Santa’s Executive, a new role for him, and he has to help out the business that is Santa and the North Pole. Since he’s so new, a bombshell elf, Rina, will have to come down and help him out. Of course, sparks will fly and when the baddie comes to town, they have to rely on each other.
It’s a cute story, like the rest of my Holiday books, so not as dark as my other series. But I love writing things like this! Is anything in your books based on real life experiences or purely all imagination? Um, I don’t think so! Unless Santa’s real, it’s just from my mind. But who knows, he could be knocking on my door any moment. Are there any characters from any of your stories you would like to go back to, or is there a theme or idea you would love to work with? Since I write a series, I get a chance to visit all my characters again. I do want to work with dragons...and I will in the Dante’s Circle series. LOL
So Far I have loved each of you books!!

Do you have any advice to aspiring authors?
Write! Don’t think about writing, but just do it.
Great Advice

 What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? The best compliment?
 Um, I don’t want to really say what they said to me, but it helping me eventually…I think.

 The best compliment?
 My first reader email saying they loved my book. I love love love reader emails.

OK how about some fun stuff.

Cats or Dogs?
I have two cats because of time, but I love both kinds.

Which of your characters would you love to meant in real life?
Any of my Redwood Pack boys!
I would love that myself!! LOL

Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate if it’s not by itself.

 Name a Favorite author?
 I have too many, but my favorite that I read this week is Ilona Andrews.

 Do you like to travel? Favorite place to visit?
 I like going new places, but hate airports LOL. At this point, I just like visiting family, we live too far away now.

 Name a favorite book (your or someone else's) and why?
My favorite that I’ve written is Dust of My Wings. It was a new world for me and about every type of shifter, angel, demon, dragon and other thing you can imagine.
I have too many favorite books that I’ve read!
