Q & A with the Author
What’s a misconception about midlife that you’d like to clear up?
That single women over forty must be in wont of a husband.
What was your favorite part of writing Paranormal Women’s Fiction?
Being able to write characters who are still badasses, no matter how much their back aches.
Tell us a bit about your story.
Emmaline is a single academic booklover who’s had a lifelong crush on the same man. And when she inherits a Magicker Office that can turn her into any person in the world, she turns into his ex…
Tell us about your experience writing a book for the Aged to Perfection Antho.
It was the most fun I’ve had writing in years. Emmaline is so much of me, it’s been great to be inside her head.
Tell us about one of your upcoming titles.
I’m releasing more books in the Forty First Dates for a Midlife Magicker series, and specifically, the next book, she meets her Matchmaker.
Why was this story important for you to tell?
There’s so much of my personality in Emmaline’s story. It was fun to give her a life that I would have liked and then see what happened. So fun.
Do you have a writing routine?
Every morning at 5am before work starts!
If you could live the life of one single character in your story, who would it be and why?
Emmaline. Absolutely. I’d love to be able to turn into any person I wanted to. Be completely anonymous.
Do you have a personal connection with any of the characters in your story? Does one resonate with you more than the others?
I actually really resonate with Marcus, the love interest, as well. He’s been dating and dating, trying to find his magickal pair, and he’s just never been able to find her. There’s so much of me in Marcus, as well.
What is something you hope the readers take away from your story?
That it’s never too late for love.
How long have you been writing?
Since I was a kid writing New Kids on the Block fan fiction. Way too long.
What words of advice would you give to new writers who are just starting in the genre of Paranormal Women’s Fiction?
Read. Everything. In. The. Genre. There are so many amazing writers doing this right now, and there’s still so much room. It’s important to know what the readers are loving, and then to find your own spin on it.
Do you have other books out or planned that are related to your anthology story? If so, which ones?
There will be more of the Forty First Dates for a Midlife Magicker, and then there’s a related series (in the same world) called Dead By Midlife.
