I’m working on book 2 of a series (planned two books–brothers). Contemporary romances, set in a small town on Whidbey Island, in the state of Washington.

|What is your writing experience?||
I have three books published with small presses. Just signed a 2 book contract with Berkley’s digital first line. Been writing for over thirteen years and critiquing for about as long. Writing is a joy for me, but I also take it seriously. I’m a bit of a seat of the pants writer, so I try to write every day, but don’t always. I can usually write a 50K book in about four months.
|My writing influences are...|
|Books I enjoy reading||
Contemporary romances. Fifty Shades of Grey. Jezebel’s Wish, by AJ Nuest. Those Violet Eyes by Vonnie Davis. Bared to you, by Sylvia Day, A Hero Rising by Aubrie Dionne, Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye, Desperate Betrayal by Hildie McQueen, Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, When One NIght isn’t Enough by Wendy S. Marcus

|More About Me||
My favorite books are the ones that make me cry. Or that draw me so intensely into a it that I look up at the end of a chapter forgetting for a moment where I’m at.
As a writer, I’m honest and I’m thorough. I’ll tell you the good…and the bad. I’ll never try to change your voice or your style or make your book into what I want it to be. But if I see a potential problem, or if something trips me up while I’m reading, I will be honest and tell you about it, because it’s what I like in return.
Now, comes honesty time. I prefer to work with experienced writers, who have some knowledge of craft under their belt. I have nothing against new writers. We’ve got all to start somewhere and I’m very grateful to the ladies who had the patience to take the time to teach me. I’m just not sure I’m a good teacher. I also need someone who knows craft enough to tell me if my GMC is slipping and things like that.
