What genre do you write? Contemporary/Paranormal Romances and Contemporary Romances
Which actress/actor would you like seeing play the lead in your book? My inspiration for Remi was a picture if model Christian Jorgensen. However, I've since seen a picture of Robert Pattinson smoking and although his eyes aren't green... I could see him as Remi, too. My inspiration for Evangeline is the actress Odette Anable. I have an entire storyboard on pintrest with photos and teasers that inspired my book. Pinterest Storyboard
What type of books do you read? I read romances, usually contemporary or Regency
Any favorite authors? To many to name!
Do you think that book covers are important? YES Why? I'm a visual person. I look at a cover first, and then read the blurb. Before e-readers, I bought books simply because of the cover. Now, it's harder to see them on tumbnail, so the blurb is more important. If I pick up a book in a bookstore, I look at the cover, read the blurb and then I admit, I read the first page, and the last page of the book. I don't do that with my e-reader!

What do you use as inspiration? Dreams, music, and odd bits of news

"How many Hail Marys will you have to say for that lie?" I ask, digging in to the food with gusto.
"What lie?" He loads his tortilla with the sizzling hot steak and grilled onions.
"I'm now your sister?" I dump the rest of my salsa on the salad and peek at him from under my lashes. Why does his clerical collar only add to his attractiveness?
Remi puts the loaded tortilla down and places a hand over his heart, giving me a fake, pained expression. "That hurts' Evangeline. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ."
When I roll my eyes at his sanctimonious, craptacular answer, he gives me what my Daddy used to call a "shit-eating grin" and a wink.
