What is your favorite book?

Currently, I have several but here's three: Markings, Predator Girl, and Taste of Silver.

Well, those are your books. That's kind of selfish...

Well, do you favor other peoples' children over your own?

Is it hard to write a book?

Yes. It's very, very hard. But it's worth every minute of blood, sweat, and tears.

How do you publish a book?

Many ways. I've gone through both traditional and self-publishing routes. Honestly? I vote traditional any day. If you want to self-publish, go through Kindle's KDP ebook program.

What are you currently working on?

Numerous projects. As of May 2015, I am nearly done editing my science fiction novel. It should be released at the end of this year or the beginning of next. I am also working on a graphic novel slash memoir.

What inspires you to write?

My life, movies, and other books usually. Sometimes places or people. Something has to deeply move me in order to inspire me, and I'm at this place in my life where there's a lot of stress and a lot of anxiety happening... so getting inspired is harder than usual.

What were some things that inspired your current novels?

Markings started brewing in my head when I was fifteen, strangely enough after seeing the movie Catwoman. I came back to it two years later after reading Twilight and wanted to do my own take on shape-shifters. Taste of Silver was inspired by my life-long love of fantasy and fairies. Hayden's character was sort of inspired by a guy from a German band that I was heavily obsessed with at eighteen years old. I don't know where Predator Girl came from honestly. I just pulled up a Word Document one day and started spewing words across the page. Predator Girl was born three months later. It was my best written I think, which explains why it got published first.

Are you going to write a sequel to Taste of Silver?

It's on the back-burner. I do not know when I will get to it. I hope before I'm 30.

There had better be a sequel to Markings...

Oh, yes. It is on the table. There are pages. Now it's only a matter of having enough time and energy to sit and do it! Maybe the end of this year 2015? 

Which of your book characters do you relate with most?

Hmm. Well, all of them! If I had to narrow it down to one, probably Ilume from Predator Girl. 

If you had to marry one of your male protagonists, which would it be?

Eeps, that's a tough one. At this time, probably Hayden from Taste of Silver :) 

When you aren't writing, what are you doing?

Well, usually working and trying to pull back together my insane, nutty life. When I'm not dealing with the demands of life, you will either find me in the ocean, a Starbucks, or a tattoo chair!

Okay, but seriously, if you had a recommended reading list (NOT your own books) what did you love?

Okay, okay, here's what I recommend outside my work:

Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh. There are no words to describe how much I love this book. Whoever thought a nonfiction book would be my favorite book of all outside my own? Every person in the galaxy should read this. So poignant and above all, absolutely, utterly hilarious!

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Because a movie is one thing but to get the total effect, the absolute FEEL of a story, you need to read its birthright, AKA the book. I read this series in four days, which is faster than I read Twilight.

Jessica's Guide To Dating On The Dark Side By Beth Fantaskey. I still ADORE this book after all these years! So funny and romantic and reminds me why I love vampires so much. Can't wait to finish reading the sequel to this awesome story.

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I loved two of the four books in this series. The first, however, was my favorite. They were brilliant with fallen angels, great suspense and romance. The plot and characters are realistic and fun.
