Q&A with the Author
1) My Writing Journey
My writing journey has been fun, and scary and exciting. While it started long before I published and even longer than before I started writing The Obscured series, I never set out in life thinking I would be a writer, but as with books, you never know where life might take you.
2) How I came up with the idea for my novel?
When I set out to write my series, I knew it would be Fantasy, but the exact storyline didn’t come to me until I had already begun writing. I never wrote with an outline and it all came to me as I wrote. Since the first book, I have experimented with outlines, and I like them, but I always find that my characters take me where they want to go whether it’s part of the plan or not.
3) The best writing advice I ever got and I used it to get me to where I am today
The best writing advice I ever got was to write what you need to write with as few words as possible. I find that I try to stick to this, though I sometimes forget when I’m swept up in a story.
4) My book promotion experiences thus far and which strategies are more effective
So far promotions have been limited, of what I have tried my favorite has been Booksends.com, which if you’ve never used it is just like bookbub, but on a smaller scale.
5) A Day in my Life
A day in my life is chaos. I am a stay at home mother of three, but let’s not forget about the two dogs (including a great dane who thinks she’s a human). Between dance lessons, karate, and soccer, my life is a bit crazy, with writing being my zen.
6) What is most important to me and why
My family is the most important to me. Family is what makes your life happy, everything else is just noise… of course books, are great to spend time reading with family.. 🙂

About the Author
I am a wife and mother of three. I grew up in the sunshine state of Arizona with a love of reading and an ambition to write. But I never took my writing seriously until after the birth of my first child. After that I took up writing more seriously in my spare time and I haven’t stopped since.
