Why YA fiction? What draws you to it?
Answer: In YA there’s Magic. I know that Adult novels can also hold a magical element; But YA also holds the element of Hope, newness. There is freshness, a sense of wonder, and discovery in most of the stories in this genre, including my favorite Paranormal. I suppose I always feel as if I am getting a second chance to begin anew, with each story I read or write!
Pretend your protagonist is at school and opens her locker – what will we see inside?
Angel will most likely come into contact with a Vampire that is trying to destroy her, or a member of Wasiki’s (He’s the bad guy) group, who is waiting to possess her. So yeah, she’s better off carrying her books!
What books were your favorite as a youth and why?
As a Teen and Young adult, shoot let’s be real…even now:O) I love the Gothic Romances and Paranormal stories. Any story with a touch of magic and mayhem!
What’s your favorite sweet treat?
What did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
A Writer, I never really believed back then I would, well, actually I will not say that, it was more like…a far out of reach dream, that I would love to experience…I wanted to be a writer, because I love to read and I wanted to create worlds and adventures like my favorite authors did. So, now I really feel as if I am walking, “living” my dreams…I am grateful, because it truly rocks!:)
What would you write in a letter to your teen self?
I would warn the young me of the Pitfalls that I knew would come, make mostly completely different choices, and tell her to not be afraid, go after her dream of writing then…if I had told her all of this, it’s no telling how far I would be now?:)
What candy do you give out at Halloween?
I know I probably should say something about striving to give healthier items for snacks, but the truth of the matter is, I give out all the gooey, hooey, chocolaty treats! My daughter would have it no other way!
Coal or candy in your Christmas stocking? Why?
Ooooh, I suppose it’s really bad, to say I’m not sure?:O)
Um, I will say I have a couple weeks left, so I will try and pull it out and get that candy this year!
What superpower would you love to have? Why?
Shape shifter, with the abilities of the host. Then I could be whoever, and whatever I wish on a given day! Oh! I just realized I have that power already, like so many others…
I write stories :-)
What book is on your nightstand currently?
I am actually reading a book for a read 2 review on Goodreads…the title is “Into The Night by Jade Fowler and one other Tales of Aradia The Last Witch by LA Jones
Hunger Games or Twilight? Why?
Although I am fast becoming a fan of the Hunger Games, and it will be my go-to movie on movie nights in the upcoming future, and you will probably see me raving about it on social media…but always and forever Twilight Saga...it was a great romance, which I loved!
