From the Author
Q: What genres do you write in and why?
A: My stories tend to fall under Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Romantic Suspense. Think of it as a mix of magic, love and mayhem. As an avid reader I would gorge on fantasy and murder-mysteries from my school and local libraries, but when I hit high school I started sneaking my mom's romance novels out of the house.
After stumbling through life and entering the big bad world as an adult, both my writing and reading tastes evolved. Now my characters (magical and non) suddenly became harder to hurt (emotionally and physically) while their relationships became crucial to my stories. A therapist would have a field day with this, but my stories shifted to heroines who didn't need a hero to ride to her rescue. Sometimes it was more satisfying if she rumbled up to rescue him from a psycho on her Harley, only to discover that together they could take on the shuffling zombie horde or band of psychos.
Q: What makes a good story?
A: Characters, definitely. Someone once said that every story that's ever been told, has already been told. That may be true, if you're thinking of it from a general story idea (boy meets girl, prophesized child saves the world, tarnished knight saves the lady/kingdom for redemption, etc.), but what sets each story apart are the people in them. Every person reacts differently when faced with challenges, and it's in those reactions that a story is born. Character choices are what keep you turning the pages to find out what they'll do next.
