I have always love to write, and wrote short stories almost on a daily basis in college. I never liked sharing any of my stories because I was very insecure about people not liking them.
Writers are sometimes influenced by things that happen in their own lives. Are you?
Definitely. I think that each of my characters have a little piece of me in them, but with Always and Forever the main character is a twin. When I wrote this book, I was pregnant with twins, and I am also a twin myself. At the time, twins were very big in my life (My twin sister also has twin children) and I think that it helped me be able to show a realistic relationship between the characters in my story. Twins have a unique bond, and I try and show that in my Secrets of Shadow Hill series.
The series follows Ava and Dalton as they face many dangers and challenges. They fight to keep all that they love safe while grappling with intense emotions. Ava struggles with her past as she is thrust into this new magical life filled with heartache and fear. Time and again Ava's loyalty and strength are put to the test as she fights for those she loves. The stories take you through many surprising twists and turns as more and more secrets of Shadow Hill are revealed.
I also will be having my debut contemporary suspenseful romance, Dust to Dust (A Broken Fairy Tale) released this fall. This will be the first of a four book stand-alone series that follows riveting characters who show that it is the darkens in life that guides us to the light.
