Q) What inspired you to write this story?
Trust Me? The Trust Me? Trilogy was born from a vivid dream. The dream was so real that I woke up and quickly wrote it down, so I wouldn’t forget about it in the morning. The next thing I knew I was writing a Trilogy. I had the dream in 2012, and I sat myself down to write solidly until the Trilogy was on paper. Some of the characters in the book are based on my actual friends, and of course things that have happened in my life. I have major trust issues and this book helped me to see that perhaps they can be overcome with love.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
Trust Me? took around three months to get down on paper, Love Me? and All of Me? took approximately one month each. Of course, this is only the first draft, many more endless hours of editing, drafting, beta reading and re-editing have taken place for each book.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
My favorite thing about writing is the freedom to be able to create anything that you can image. That’s what’s so great about the world of fiction.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
I guess when I really think about it, I love getting the story down on paper, but really detest the multiple drafts and editing process. Of course, it’s something that you have to do, but it seems to take so long to complete. The process makes the book the best it can be, and therefore is a necessary evil. However one of the hardest things about being a writer is getting the word out there about your books, this requires weeks of blogging and promotion. It can be fun at times, but also very hard work with long days at the computer.
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
I think I would be Amy Adams but only when she is playing Lois Lane in Superman so then I can kiss Henry Cavill ;)
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
Probably a few bottles of wine that have been in there for over a year. I have been too busy promoting The Trust Me? Trilogy that I haven’t had time to drink them. I need a break so I can enjoy them with some friends.
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
I currently have two projects. The first project is called Just Friends? This story is about an Australian girl Kat Barett, who moves to LA to further her music career. She meets a cocky and arrogant Will Sanders, at her college. An Indi Director hires Kat and Will to star in an upcoming movie franchise. The story talks about their rise to fame, how they cope with it, and ultimately go from being just friends to falling in love.
The second project is called It Will Rain? This is the story about Makailie Raine, a budding young author who’s on the right side of the tracks. She meets Cole Barrington, a very dominant man who is ruthless in his business dealings. Mikailie quickly picks up that there’s something darker about Cole, and that he’s keeping something from her. Cole is infatuated by Mikailie and her innocence, but he doesn’t want to drag her into his darkness. This book may develop into a series of two books, but the first one is still in the early draft stages of writing.
