You're welcome :)
Do you plan everything or just let the story flow?
Do your characters ever want to take over the story?
Yes. Sometimes I let them, sometimes not, depending on where they want to go. Whatever happens, in the end, it must make the heroine happy.
What is your favourite food?
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Morning since becoming a mother. An owl in college.
Where do you dream of travelling to and why?
Egypt because I want to see the pyramids.
Do distant places feature in your books?
I live overseas and have traveled and lived in several countries but all my settings are in the States or imaginary planets. Maybe one day I’ll take readers to Eastern Europe or Asia.
Do you listen to music while writing?
Yes, mostly not in English so I don’t sing along.

Write books people want to read.

Who, or what, if anything has influenced your writing?
I write so that I can stay at home with my kids, so my family, in a way, influences my writing.

When life deals a wild card, play it no matter the cost.
Since the day Rey’s defiance earned her a blinding blow to the head, fear has hovered as close as the guide dog that clings to her side. But the terror that grips her now is almost beyond description.
Like her sister before her, Rey has been sold to satisfy the lusts of one of the alien Beasts that now rule the Earth. If the towering, leather-clad Alpha discovers his prize can’t see, he could kill her with a flick of his claw. Or worse, send her home—where the only mercy she’ll get is a bullet.
From the moment the Alpha Beast spotted Rey smiling tenderly at her flowers, his desire to own her, body and soul, roared louder than his bike’s throaty engine. But the only smiles his new pair aims his way are forced—and oddly off target. She is liquid heat in his arms, yet ignores the notes and gifts he leaves for her.
If he can’t win her over, he can’t trust her with his own truth. And the combined weight of their secrets could destroy everything.

The Alpha Beast grunted. A large hand framed one side of my face, and his mouth slammed down on mine, his tongue demanding entrance. Whistling and hooting followed his assault—he considered it a kiss, I was sure. His hand wound around my hair, and I could do nothing but let him invade. I pretended it was a romantic wedding kiss, a press of lips, subtle and gentle for the sake of an audience, but the Alpha clearly didn’t know what gentle meant. My back nearly snapped when he leaned forward and I leaned back. He deepened the kiss. For a second, I thought, he might swallow me whole. When his tongue swirled with mine and a low growl rumbled in the back of his throat, I stopped thinking altogether.
The Alpha Beast tasted fresh, a hint of mint and lemon on his expert tongue, not a trace of stale beer or someone else’s night-before lipstick. Growing up with a community whore had thought me to appreciate the small things and rejoice in those small things even at the most terrifying moments. I didn’t know what would happen to me with this man, but at least he didn’t taste bad on my sensitive palate.
After a minute, his kissing slowed and his tongue stopped moving. Not knowing what else to do, I stroked it with mine. With the tip of my tongue, I flicked his. The Alpha Beast groaned into my mouth and pressed me closer. He was so hard, I thought he might burst out of his pants and take me right over his bike. He could do what he wanted with me. I was his pair.
