What is your writing experience?

I currently have two YA paranormal mystery novels (in a series) published; self-published under my own publishing company. And also have a short story mystery series going on Amazon under the same publishing company. In addition, I am self-publishing children’s books on Kindle.

My writing influences are...

A broad mix; including Jennifer Weiner, Julia Glass, Tana French, Tracy Brogan, T. Greenwood, Suzanne Collins. Love contemporary writing, mostly. Love writing paranormal mystery for the younger audience (although seems to appeal to older women, too!), but am focusing currently on the contemporary women’s novel.

Books I enjoy reading

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover was great. Am really enjoy Tracy Brogan’s Crazy Little Thing right now!

More About Me

I have really enjoyed self-publishing my series, and it has been well-received. The marketing and publishing aspect is tough, and time intense and I’ve loved every minute of it. However, with this new women’s contemporary novel, I would like to give the agent route a try, and see if I can go traditional publishing under a pen name. Should be a fun journey!
Other than writing, I am a wife and mother of four children! I live in Montana, love the outdoors, have dogs, horses and cats, and really try to get my behind out of the chair and out from behind the computer to enjoy it all. But I’m a little obsessed and addicted to writing and reading! I also love film and LOVE books that are adapted to film. So fun to read the book, then see the movie!
