I’m new to you! Can you tell me about your work?
I recently published my debut novel, Where I Found You, on May 8th. It’s a story about two people who meet each other by chance at the most unexpected time. They have both been delivered a tough hand in life. It’s a story about how together they find strength and love. It has been described as emotionally intense and heartachingly beautiful.
Who are your favorite authors?
That is a tough question for someone who has several favorite authors and books. I guess I’ll start out with the authors who brought me into the romance community and that was Colleen Hoover. I read Slammed and Point of Retreat right after POR was published. I devoured both in a short time and began quickly searching for other book recommendations.
I have a few author’s, where no matter what they publish, I am always right there ready to one-click their next release. Those authors would be K.C. Lynn, Harper Sloan, Adriana Locke, J. Daniels, and Penelope Douglas.
When you are not writing, any other interests or hobbies?
I have two boys (ages 5 & 9) who keep me very busy. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to movies, watching NBA basketball, or READING. I also really like taking naps! Naps are GREAT!
What inspired you to write?
When I was younger, I really enjoyed writing poetry and journaling my thoughts. It’s has been a way for me to express myself and try to understand what I was feeling when I was going through a tough time. As I’ve grown older, my passion for writing and reading romance novels has come together.
My debut novel, Where I Found You, is a story that I feel a lot of people can relate to. It touches on difficult subjects, such as sexual and physical abuse as well as alcohol addiction. I wanted to write a story that people can relate to and inspires them to remember you’ll find love even when you don’t expect it or believe you deserve it.
