- What difference does literature make in your life?
Literature has been a huge part of my life ever since I was a kid. My mom used to read me Stephen King and I loved getting lost in the worlds he created. When I’m lost, or having a bad day, I love to grab a book and enter it’s world. Literature keeps me sane and grounded.
- Your life would be what without literature?
My life without literature would be simply boring.
- What attracts you more poetry or novel and why ?
Novel, I love a good poem, but poetry is just a brief break from life, where as with a novel you can become totally immersed in another world, you use your imagination and make new friends with each book you read.
- If you get a chance to transform your world into anything, what would be your decision?
Honestly, I don’t think I’d transform my world. As crazy and stressful as it is, I get to do what I love, and I have beautiful children. I like my world the way it is!
- Books are like what to you?
Therapy. They make me laugh, and cry, and some even make me angry. Books allow me to feel all of these emotions without directing them at someone in my real life.
- Who is the God of literature according to you?
Honestly, to me, there is no such person. There are a lot of amazing writers out there, but give one of them that title would be down playing the talents of the others.
- Tell me about your next project?
I am working on Broken Aria. This is the first book in my brand new Broken Series, but all the books will be able to read as a stand alone novel. Aria has been through a lot, she’s experienced tragedy and betrayal before her 21st birthday and she’s having to pick up the pieces. We’ll watch as she struggles with her pain, and learning to live after everything that’s happened to her.
