I guess the first thing I should tell you is I write using a pen name and my books are Contemporary Romance.
Through social media, I was lucky enough to follow and friend Romance Author Kate Perry (Kathia Zolfaghari). I also love to read Paranormal Romance which is how I became acquainted with Author Nicky Charles. Their encouragement and advice gave me the push I needed to fine tune my work, send it off to an editor and then share it with you.
I have a vivid imagination and get pleasure from making up stories and jotting them down. It gives me great satisfaction to know the readers enjoy my books.
Once I have the characters in my head the story seems to write itself. I just follow where the characters lead me. A lover of music, I often use references to song titles in my books to help set the mood of the scene. Be forewarned, I am a huge Bryan Adams fan. I've seen him in concert many times. At one particular concert I called out a song title just as the crowd in the small venue went quiet. He heard my request, spoke to me a bit then told me he would sing me my song. OMG! I was beyond excited. I don't think anything will ever top that experience.
My stories are works of fiction often focusing on real life issues. They're filled with surprises and plot twists and it has been advised by at least one of my readers to keep a box of tissues handy.
The biggest problem I have while writing is I fall in love with my characters and find it hard to end their story. My solution? Write a series. It's fun to integrate my favourite characters in the new stories and follow them as their lives evolve often taking the story line on tangents even I never expected.
I've published two books thus far and both were entered in Readfree.ly's 'The 50 Best Indy Books' contest for the years 2017 and 2018. My first release, Sam's Hideaway, placed 18th in 2017 and in 2018, Mr. Fix-it, finished in 7th place!
I am a proud Canadian and use Canadian spelling in my stories.
At this point in my life I work full time and writing is my favourite hobby. I also love fishing with my husband, reading, or just vegging out in my backyard with my crazy little schnauzer named Angel.
** Make sure that you have read the book at least once.**
