Q & A with the Author
What’s a misconception about midlife that you’d like to clear up?
That at a certain point you should stop chasing after your dreams. I’m on career three and loving it.
What was your favorite part of writing Paranormal Women’s Fiction?
I like how real you can get in a paranormal world. Our MCs live real lives and have real issues. Who’s going to babysit these kids while I take out this monster?
Tell us a bit about your story.
While I can’t write anything without a little mystery and magic, at its heart this story is a second chance romance between two kids reconnecting after nearly fifty years.
Tell us about your experience writing a book for the Aged to Perfection Antho.
For a short story, it took me forever to get on paper. Sometimes it’s harder to write short!
Tell us about one of your upcoming titles.
While You Were Spellbound is the sixth book in my Witching Hour series. In a lot of ways, it’s what the series has been leading up to while also bringing back some of the cozy mystery elements that have been removed from the more recent books.
Why was this story important for you to tell?
I always enjoy writing second chance because that’s my love story. I went on a couple of quasi-dates with my significant other, spent years without talking, then reconnected.
Do you have a writing routine?
Yes… and no 🙂
If you could live the life of one single character in your story, who would it be?
Nora (the main character)
Do you have a personal connection with any of the characters in your story? Does one resonate with you more than the others?
Augustus was a blast to write and based on one of my best friends.
How long have you been writing?
I started doing NaNoWriMo in 2010. But it took me until 2015 to finish anything. I’ve been publishing under various pseudonyms since 2017.
What words of advice would you give to new writers who are just starting in the genre of Paranormal Women’s Fiction?
Read a variety of stories before setting out to write your own. The wonderful thing about PWF is the stories can be so different.
Do you have other books out or planned that are related to your anthology story? If so, which ones?
Yes! This story is a prequel to a new series I’m planning for 2022.
