1. Best writing advice you ever received?

Oh my, so many but I would say there are two. The first was of course write what you know and the other was just write, don’t worry about if it makes sense at first ha ha just write.

2. What’s one of the craziest things that’s ever happened to you?

Oh my, so many things. I would have to say witnessing the fall of the Berlin Wall when I was stationed in Germany in the late 80’s early 90’s.

3. How long on average, does it take for you to write a book?

Well, if it’s a novella it’s usually a week if I really try and if it’s full length novel then usually a month.

4. Do you consider being a writer a gift or a curse?

Oh, a gift. I love writing and being able to meet readers. It’s the best life and to create a story or an entire world in my case is so much fun and such a gift. More than I could ever imagine.

5. What’s something you are really good at that only a few people know about?

Jewelry making, I’m a professional Makeup Artist and Photographer. I’m a huge geek and build computers and collect Star Wars and Wonder Woman stuff. I am an expert shooter. Most of my career in the Army, I shot 40/40 and was expert in the .50 cal weapon, as well as grenade launchers, and a 9 mm handgun. My hubby says I know a little about a lot of things. And I have a masters in Clinical Psychology with emphasis in Forensic Psychology.
