About the Writer
1. What five words describe you?
Writer. Cat person. Vampire fan.
2. What was the first story you ever wrote? I mean the really bad one we all have that you’re trying to hide in the back of closet now that you’re published?
I actually published my worst story. A revised version of it is called Fanged Love: The Prequel. It’s a free ebook at Amazon.
Many of my fans like it, but it only has 3 stars so I know the majority of readers don’t care for it. It’s the main reason I’ve decided likely to not continue that story into a series. *shrugs shoulders* You win some. You lose some.
3. What inspires you?
People who read my books.
4. What distracts you?
Social networking, real life, and writer’s block.
5. What’s your favorite story? This can be specific, as in a particular book or even story-driven movie, or general, like “I’m a sucker for a hero looking for redemption story.”
I love stories about the underdog, the person who everyone has dismissed and makes a comeback. My favorite book probably is Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire because after I read that at fifteen I knew I wanted to be a writer someday.

About the Writing
1. Tell us about your currently available titles.
While I’ve written a few stories under pseudonyms, I’ve been in limbo or a writer’s block with my current series for about a year, so I haven’t been writing on it. The series that is my popular one, despite my neglecting it recently, is a paranormal fantasy called The Vampire from Hell. It’s about a daughter of Satan who rebels against him after he turns her into a vampire. I’m in the process of writing the fourth installment in the series now. It’ll be called “The Vampire from Hell Returns (The Vampire from Hell: Part 4).”
Other titles include:
The Vampire from Hell (Part 1) – The Beginning*
The Vampire from Hell (Part 2) – A Vampire Among Angels*
The Vampire from Hell (Part 3) – A Vampire On Vacation
Love Begins in Hell (The Moon Journals, Part 1)*
*=These are free downloads.
You can find all of them and a few others at my Amazon Author page – https://authorcentral.amazon.com/gp/books
2. What’s your favorite part about writing these stories?
Figuring out the original premise and back story for something I want to write.
3. What would your characters say about you? Be honest!
Oh my god! I’ve never thought of that. What a great question! Probably my main heroine, Rayea who is the Vampire from Hell would say, “She’s a very kind and sweet person. She means well, but sometimes she’s a little misguided and lacks focus.”
4. Who would play your favorite character if they made a movie of their story?
Originally I’d say Angelina Jolie because that’s who I based Rayea’s looks on. Now perhaps I’d say or Emily Blunt.
5. Do you have any projects currently in the works you want to talk about?
I’m in the process of writing “The Vampire from Hell Returns (The Vampire from Hell: Part 4)” as well as revising the current Parts 1-3 and releasing them as an anniversary edition.
