Do you plan everything or just let the story flow?

A little bit of both! To me, outlines are essential. Before I start writing even a word of the story, I outline the entire plot. But, if I get halfway through and all of a sudden get this amazing idea, I'll change course. I'm too much of a planner to just start writing with no sense of direction, but I would also never want to limit the story just because I already outlined it a certain way.

Do your characters ever want to take over the story?

All the time—and I let them! I figure, it's their story to tell and I'm just the messenger. And Kira, the main character of the Midnight Fire Series, definitely has a mind of her own!

What is your favourite food?

Oh man, I love it all! I'm a big foodie! If we're talking dessert, I go simple with ice cream or frozen fruit. But for meals? Risotto, lasagna, fried rice, burger and fries…anything really! Except fish, for some reason I really don't like fish…

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Night owl… I don't really wake up until I'm 2-3 cups of coffee deep!

Where do you dream of travelling to and why?

I've always wanted to go on a safari in Africa! Maybe The Lion King affected me in more ways than I realize, but I just think it would be amazing to see those animals in real life when they're not in cages.

Do distant places feature in your books?

Yup! The characters in the Midnight Fire Series travel all around the USA, but they also make a pit stop in Europe—I won't say where because I don't want to give it away!

Do you listen to music while writing?

Nope! I like to write in silence. If I listen to music, I tend to stop typing and start belting the lyrics instead.

Could you tell us a bit about your latest release?

Scorch is the fourth and final book in my Midnight Fire Series! I think it is the perfect ending to what has been a crazy adventure with twists, turns and some hopefully heart-stopping romance.

What have you learned about writing and publishing since you first started?

That even though I write the books alone, the publishing process is a joint effort! I could not have done it without my family, friends, diligent editors, and fantastic readers.

Is there anything you would do differently?

Maybe, but I try not to dwell on that sort of thing! I have absolutely no regrets—this has been the best experience in my life.

Anything you would say to those just starting out in the craft?

Write the story you want to tell—don't worry about the trends, or what's popular at the time, or what anyone else might think.

What are three words that describe you?

Enthusiastic, intelligent and…determined!

What's your favourite book or who is your favourite writer?

I can't choose! I love way too many books to pick just one. But some of my favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead, Lynne Ewing, Tamora Pierce, Robert Jordan, Scott Westerfeld, and a ton more!

Kira gulped, unable to stop the growing sense that everything in her world was about to change.”

With Aldrich’s note burning a hole in her pocket, Kira is off to England to finally reunite with her birth mother. But what begins as a dream quickly turns to a nightmare and Kira is left questioning everything she has ever known. Can she be the conduit Luke wants her to be? Can she be the rebel Tristan needs her to be? Or is she something else? Something no one, not even Aldrich, ever saw coming…

Book 4 in Midnight Fire Series

"All it did was remind Kira that time was running out. That she needed to choose. Or a lot more than a forest would burn. The whole world would crumble."

Aldrich escaped…again. Tristan forgot…everything. And Luke, well, Luke was getting more than a little impatient. But those were the least of Kira’s concerns, because something else happened in England—something she was trying desperately to forget. A wedge of evil had lodged itself in her heart, a little black hole had nestled into her flames, and it wasn’t going away—not anytime soon…and maybe not ever.

Scorch is the fourth and final book in the thrilling Midnight Fire Series. It is approximately 65,000 words.
