How Long have you been writing?

I've been writing for a while, but I published my first book on March 31st, 2017. One of my best friends from college kept prodding me to write and in January of that year I finally decided to go for it. I'm so glad she kept bugging me or I wouldn't be there I am today! 


Is there a specific reading order?

All my books are stand alones in an interconnected world. While some stories might have a little more context if you read the book before it, they can be read on their own. Most people read through the series as follows: 

  1. Breaking Free: Blinded, Mixed, Served and Rocked
  2. Misters: Mr. Control, Mr. Ruin and Mr. Wicked
  3. Under His: Under His Ink and Under His Scars

Will X get their own book?!

I have so many stories with so many amazing characters! Unfortunately, I only have two hands, while their stories might be floating around my head, the timeline for when I publish them is generally based on how the rest of the series is received and my current schedule. 

Books people are dying to read! 

  • Izzie & Evan's Book - I have an outline for this book, but if I can get to it, it wouldn't be until 2019
  • Owen and the rest of the guys from Uncharted! - I'd love to write their stories, but I don't have plans to at this time. There is a kickass story brewing for Owen, but it wouldn't be until 2019
  • Alexei - Ivan's little brother's story will be out in 2018. I'm not sure if it will be before or after the summer, but it's already written :) 
  • Elena and Erik - I have their backstory down, but I don't know if I'll be able to write their story until later in 2019
  • Dmitry - I have an outline for Dmitry's book, but I'm unsure if the Under His series will end with Alexei's story.

All the delicious things I know I shouldn't be eating. Donuts, cake, cookies and bacon, so pretty much clean living for me, LOL! 

Most days I stick with grilled chicken, veggies and water. It's boring, but it keeps me fighting fit, so I'm not under the weather and unable to write as much as I'd like.

What do you love to eat?
