There are certain questions I get asked more than others. I hope you can find the answers here.
1. How many books are planned for the Blue Lake Series? And what about the Seattle Wolf Pack series?
At the moment? Six stories are planned for Blue Lake. Three full length novels, two short stories, and one novella. I’m also planning a spin-off series (The Kiss County series) featuring the Brackett sister we meet in Let Me Love You. That series should include four to six books.
As for the Seattle Wolf Pack series, the three full length books available are the only ones that are planned for now. However, if you enjoyed those books, you’ll love the upcoming San Francisco Wolf Pack books which feature the same wolf pack rules from the Seattle Wolf Pack set in a different city.
2. Do your books have to be read in any kind of order?
Most of them don’t. (See exception below.) You can read each one separately, in any kind of order, and not feel one bit lost.
The exception: The Vampires of Crimson Bay series should be read in order. (InterVamption, Vamped Up, Last Vamp Standing.) You don’t *have* to read them in order, but it would enhance your reading experience.
3. Where does your inspiration come from?
Everywhere! Seriously, I pull inspiration from movies, music, television shows, people around me at the supermarket, etc. IN HER SHADOW was inspired by Moss Beach, California and the Moss Beach Distillery perched on the coast.
4. Where can I buy your books?
IN HER SHADOW will be released April 21st, 2020 from Ballantine Books. Visit your local bookstore or purchase from the major online retailers. My romance novels are all available in digital format on Amazon. Most are also available in print-on-demand from those sites.
5. How long does it take you to write a book?
Depends on the length! Full length books (40-60k) take me about six weeks to complete and two weeks to revise. Novellas (15-20k) take me two-four weeks with another week to revise. Short stories (5-10k) take me a day or two max.
6. Are any of your characters based on real people?
With the exception of one secondary character from Dark Tide Rising (and a few necessary mentions of Titanic crew members in One Night to Remember), the characters from my books are fictitious.
7. What’s your favorite book of the ones you’ve written?
There is no way I could choose between them. I love each one for different reasons.
Is there anything else you’d like to know? Email me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
