Five words and/or phrases that describe you:
Five people and/or things that inspire you:
Reality television – I know, it’s shameful. I’m a junkie.
I can’t say there is any one person that inspires me. I think about men in history and I’m in awe of what they endured and accomplished. One of my favorite historical figures is John Paul Jones. He led a tarnished life in England but went on to become the “Father of the American Navy.”
Five of your favorite authors:
For me that’s like asking my five favorite foods. I love to read, but tend to avoid the genre I’m currently working on. Five off the top I’d say…
Describe five of your heroes/ heroines through your eyes:
Kean Phelan from All Lycan’s Eve shoulders the responsibility for his pack. As alpha male he is their leader. In a chance meeting, he finds his mate and must protect her from the pack. He never wavers in his duties. He manages to convince Callie of their destiny and also stand in judgment of his pack to claim her. He is all the best qualities of a complex hero—Strength, love, honor, duty. If you love a bit of violence and a lot of sex in your werewolf stories, this is the one for you. All Lycan’s Eve – Ellora’s Cave
Tessa, in With or Without You, made a decision in her youth that has now come back to unravel her life. She messed up, but she’s strong-willed, decisive, and has to learn to forgive herself. With or Without You – Samhain Publishing
Taylor Davis is a great heroine. She’s intelligent and a bit arrogant without being a jerk. She’s known as the Bitch of the Beau Monde because ultimately she controls everything in her life. Putting her into a BDSM relationship where she is the submissive was a real exploration into what it would be like for a powerful, dominate business woman to give up control in the bedroom. The Cougar Meets Her Master – The Wilder Roses
Trace Tilton grew up in a small town fearing what his father would do if he discovered his sexual preference. He moved away from home after his mother’s death. It takes a family emergency to draw him back. He’s prideful, yet considerate, sophisticated, and sexy as hell. In Hard Ride Home, Trace has to choose—leave home again or stay in a small town and claim the man he wants. Hard Ride Home – Ellora’s Cave
Nash Stokes is the ranch foreman of the Triple T. He’s the second hero in Hard Ride Home. Rural Montana is the ideal place for a man to live a simple life. And the perfect place to keep his sexual preferences a secret—until Trace disrupts his idyllic life. He’s loyal, hard working, and stubborn as hell. Hard Ride Home – Ellora’s Cave
Five reasons to read your books:
Hopefully, I’ve written books that entertain you. In the moments when you’re reading one of my stories, whether paranormal or contemporary, the unbelievable becomes believable.
I’ve try to write stories with unique twists on those hot alpha males, decadent vamps, and feisty heroines in contemporary romance.
My stories tend to have that campy dialog and situation that will hopefully at least bring a smile to your face if not make you laugh out loud.
Of course, if you love hot sex scenes you’ll enjoy my books.
And finally I like a fast read and I think that’s reflected in the way I write. So if you like that too, I think you’d enjoy one of my books.
