Her books are truly AMAZING, guys! So, before you rush off to pick up your own copies, lets take a minute to read what she said when I threw my 20 Questions at her....
When is your birthday?
Where did you grow up?
Are you a morning person or a night person?
Both. I do my best writing at night, but I do my best adulting in the morning.
Why did you choose to write for the genre that you do?
Darkness has always been something I’ve been attracted to. I’m inspired by the way people overcome tragedies, so I naturally gravitated toward dark fiction (my first two novels) and then dark romance.
If you could go anywhere in the universe, where would you go, and why?
I’ve traveled a lot, but I haven’t been to Asia. That’s next on my list.
If you could live with one person living, dead, or imaginary for one year in a tiny one bedroom apartment, who would you choose and why?
My hubby. We’ve done the 1-bedroom apartment thing and we survived it, so I know we could do it again.
What are three things that you would put on your Bucket List?
Learn to speak Spanish, travel the world for a year, open a doggy daycare.
What is the wallpaper on your cellphone?
My dogs. I have a Maltese and a Yellow Lab. Besides my hubby, they’re my everything.
What are three things that you always keep handy at all times?
Lip gloss. Floss. Sharpie.
What is one thing that most people do not know about you?
I eat almost a whole pineapple every day.
What is the most attractive, and the first thing you notice, about the opposite sex?
Hands. Always their hands. They tell so much about a person. Not just their nails, but their skin, the shape and length of their fingers, and the width of their palm.
If you could be any color in the big box of crayons, which one would you be?
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Do you eat your feelings, or starve them?
I eat them. Bring on the sweets.
What is your biggest baddest guilty pleasure?
Porn. Is that a guilty pleasure? Let’s go with it.
If you could throw a parade, what type of parade would you throw and why?
I saw a dog parade recently in New Orleans that was adorable. There should be more of those. Dogs make everyone happy.
What is one food, or drink, that you could NEVER give up?
WINE. And chocolate. I love them equally.
Do any of the scenes in your books come from personal experience, or actually events, and are you willing to tell us about one?
My first novel, Memoirs Aren’t Fairytales, was inspired when I lost a best friend to a heroin overdose. In the novel, a man nods out on the subway and almost falls and hurts himself. The exact scene happened to me while living in Boston, except the man nodding out in front of me OD’d on the train and died.
Are you a Clutter Queen or a Neat Freak?
Neat freak. Clutter doesn’t live in my world.
Would You Rather…
See but never smell, or hear but never taste?
I’d rather see, but never smell. I have an extremely sensitive nose. It can be amazing and a curse all at the same time. I could handle not smelling, but seeing is a MUST.
