Welcome to JBR! We are thrilled to have you visiting today. With the huge give away going on what item are you offering to our wonderful readers?
I’ve just completed a wonderful erotic fantasy romance novella titled PORTALS OF OZ. I’d be delighted to offer this book in its electronic form!
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m a California girl who lives on the central coast with my cowboy husband and two fast-growing sons. I write fulltime, work in my husband’s home office fulltime, and enjoy the country living on our ranch.
What genres do you like to write?
I’m having the time of my life with my self-titled genre “modern mythic romance” and creation of The Centaurs series. Erotic fantasy romance is what I currently write.
What is your newest release?
The book that’s part of the giveaway! Portals of Oz, an erotic Wood Nymph novella.
What are you working on right now?
I’m busy writing Book 3 of The Centaurs, which is a full novel; another Centaur novella (untitled), and a time-travel erotic western.
Any future projects you can hint about?
I’ll have a total of five books in the Centaur series before I start writing the Troll series, and then on to the Wood Nymphs. Readers: it’s time to let me know who you’d like to see get their own book!!
As a writer, can you give an aspiring author any advice or some of your wisdom??
I have two pieces of advice: #1) BICHOK – Butt In Chair Hands On Keyboard. It’s the only way you’ll ever finish the damn book. #2) Find a small group of trusted critique partners and learn the craft. Whether you publish traditionally, indie, or self-pub, a well written book is critical to your future.
If you could meet one character from your books who would it be and why?
I’d LOVE to meet the uber handsome, shapeshifting Centaur, Kempor Aleksander, from my second book TROLL-Y YOURS. He’s Bacchus’s gift to females, voted Most Eligible Bachelor fifteen years in a row by Mythic Magazine, and second in command to none other than the Centaur queen herself.
Are there any other people or authors that have inspired you or helped you along the way?
Inspiration for character development came from the selflessly giving Cherry Adair. Keeping the storyline raw and on the edge comes from my critique partners and fellow authors Brenda M. Dyer, D’Ann Lincscott-Dunham, and Melissa Limoges. My go-to wicked friend and fellow erotic author, Leanore Elliott, is generous with her time and patience when I have technical questions on writing. Yes, she’s also my editor!
How about some fun stuff? what is your fav activity besides writing?
I totally enjoy horseback rides on the beach, wine tasting at any of the 100 plus wineries in my area, and watching my husband compete with his border collies in sheep herding trials.
Do you own any pets?
We have three horses and two dogs that are pets. The sheep in our herd aren’t pets, and the other dogs (there are five border collies) are working and competition dogs.
Fav place to travel?
Living on a ranch means you rarely leave home. Livestock require daily care, something a pet sitter won’t take on. LOL BUT, if I could travel, the United Kingdom would be my first stop. There’s a pub crawl on horseback in Scotland I’ve been dying to go on for years.
Fav author you can recommend to our readers?(can have more than one)
I’m a huge Jacquelyn Frank fan – she writes some of the best paranormals I’ve ever read. And I’m a Cherry Adair groupie — romantic suspense at its best. If I’m in the mood for humor and adventure, I’ll pick up a Sandra Hill novel.
Fav book (same question as above)
Jacob – Jacquelyn Frank
Edge of Danger – Cherry Adair
Wet and Wild – Sandra Hill
