What book made you cry?
Blue by Sarah Jayne Carr. To be fair I was given warning, I did not take heed of it.
Who would you rather be? A ninja or a pirate? A pirate, I’d sail to distant lands seeking treasures, beaches and exotic lads. Oops lands lol. Maybe both.
Do you believe in writer’s block? I do believe whole heartedly in writers block, and sometimes switching to a different book or short story helps get through it.
Preferred writing font?
Times new roman. How boring right, but it works best for editing and formatting.
How do you pick character names?
Depending on the story sometimes I research name data bases for meanings that link to the type of character or their background. Other times I just pick something I like or a real persons name, slightly changes who might have something quirks in common with a character.
Does Bigfoot exist?
Of course I live in Ohio, in bigfoot country. We host bigfoot camp outs at our state parks and warn our children to be weary of the lonely dirt roads at night.
How many books have you written AND which is your favorite?
I have written to solo books that are published and I have been in a few anthologies. My favorite book so far is Marcus a Black Lily Club Story. I adore vampires with bite.
Can you tease us with something about your upcoming WIP? Here are two little snippets of Sam a Black Lily Club Story. The second in the Lily Club Books. It focuses on a different couple in the same club and town as Marcus.
“How can you love me, Michael? I'm so broken.” She sniffed and pulled away from me.
I reached over and pulled her onto my lap, cradling her head against my shoulder. “I love you because you are strong. You are beautiful. Most of all I love you because you are you.” I stroked along her back trying to soothe her weary soul. “I love you because the goddess gave me you. My very own glowing goddess of the night. Your soul calls to me like no other on this earth. You are perfection to me.”
Roses, roses, all around, nothing else for Samantha to smell, the sing song rhyme played over and over in my head. The dank stench of must and mildew filled my soul. The drip drip of the water along the crevice of the crumbling sandstone had become my only source of time. Each drip was one minute from the next. I had lost track of the minutes that had trickled by. The roses lay strewn about my cell. No food or water. Nothing but silver bars and chains.
What’s your favorite scene in your latest novel?
“Child she is not yours to save, for her to be yours completely utterly without misgivings, or skepticism in your love or her own ability. She must find her strength. Her own will must be stronger than her desire for defeat.” A silvery misted hand caressed my shoulder. “I do not bless two separate creations with one destiny unless they have the fortitude to endure the harshest tests. I love like no other before me, but the rewards shall be reaped as no other coupling in your time.” The mist began to fade. “there will be a time, soon and you shall have to rein in the wolf and let her stand on her own feet, only then will she truly be free to love unabandoned and your gifts shall be the greatest in history.”
“How can I let her suffer so?” I couldn’t fathom the torture she was enduring.
“You have the courage to love a vampire. You will have the fortitude of the Gods in your next test.” The mist faded away.’
We’re in a bar and I’m buying you a drink. What’ll it be?
Margarita straight up on the rocks, with salt on the rim. I am pretty basic, but I love my tequila. Later on that night we can do shots.
Would you rather fight 100 chicken-sized donkeys or one donkey-sized chicken?
One donkey sized chicken. I play D&D so action economy is key. One hundred attacks to one is a sure fire way to lose a fight.
Have you ever stolen a pen from work? I am nurse in my secret identity life, it’s part of the training to steal pens from work. We are little pen goblins.
As a writer, it can be difficult to find enough time in the day to get everything done. Would you like to share your favorite ‘quick and easy’ recipe?
We make chicken tacos in the crock pot on days I work late, my shifts are 12.5 hours so I never feel like cooking when I get home.
1 three pound bag of frozen boneless skinless chicken breast
1 large jar of salsa ( pick the heat level based on your taste preference)
1 or 2 packets taco seasoning based on flavor preference.
Put it all in the crock pot together on low for 8 -10 hours or high 4-5 hours
When the chicken shreds easily with two forks its ready.
Serve with toppings of choice lettuce tomatos extra salsa sour cream and of course cheese. Can be eater with hard or soft shells. I like to make taco salads with the left overs for work.
