Thanks so much for inviting me to be a guest on your blog!! I’m so happy to be here!
Was there an experience that led you to want to be an author or was it something you have always wanted to do?
What has been your most memorable moment since you were published?
Seeing my book in print. Writers dream about holding their books in their hands, and when I saw mine on the shelf in the bookstore, it was totally overwhelming. In a good way.
What do you think would be the hardest or most challenging genre to write a novel in and why?
Anything contemporary. It’s just too real, you know? I write fantasy because I like the escapism and writing contemporary would be a little too real for me. But I’ve always wanted to challenge myself to write an adult or YA contemp. Just to see if I can put the paranormal to the back of my mind for a while.
Why did you choose the paranormal/urban fantasy genre to start literary career in? Was there a certain appeal for paranormal/urban fantasy genre?
One of the aspects that I loved about Shaedes of Gray was that you were adding something new and different into the paranormal genre. Was it important to you to set yourself apart from all the other books in the genre that use more traditional power and creature?
I know I was very interested in Darian’s abilities as a Shaede, can you give us any preview on what additional powers or abilities Darian will have? Are there any abilities that Darian has that you would like?
Darian gets some insight into her abilities in BLOOD BEFORE
as well as why she’s the way she is. As the series continues, Darian is going to discover a few more enhancements she didn’t realize she had, but I don’t want to give anything away. ;) I think of all of Darian’s perks, I’d like the ability to heal quickly. That would definitely come in handy! SUNRISE
Do you have any information on upcoming works or events that you are able to share?
