Q:  How did you come up with the idea to write your book?

Wow, this book was a trip back in time. I had written it almost two decades ago and the original version showed it was very much born in 2000, from how the characters spoke to the way they dressed. I had a few changes to make, along with a few facepalm moments over how tragically hip the characters were. It still had a great love story that captured my attention when I pulled it out and read it over.

Q: How hard was it to write a book like this and do you have any tips that you could pass on which would make the journey easier for other writers?

It wasn’t hard at all to work on this book. I adored Mack and Zoey’s love story. They were the cutest couple. Writing an ensemble cast can be very busy and all over the place, but I love doing it. I love all the hopping around to characters, with each book being a separate couple, but still getting the whole story of all the characters, as tension builds between future couples.

Q: Who is your publisher and how did you find them or did you self-publish?

I’ve worked with publishers in the past but I decided I wanted to self publish this book. I had some alternating viewpoints that I felt a publisher would want me to change when it flowed very easily. 

Q: What other books are you working on and when will they be published?

Look for the sequel to Twelve Days - Home For Christmas coming very soon! It focuses more on Josh and Nia’s story. Then a future book featuring the other members of Hartbreakers along with a re-release of a previously published book.

Q: What’s one fact about your book that would surprise people?

I turned down a contract 17 years ago for it because I didn’t like the terms. I felt like I was giving up too much.

Q: Finally, what message are you trying to get across with your book?

Love can conquer all during the holidays.
Q: Thank you again for this interview!  Do you have any final words?

Be excellent to each other and party on, dudes! Thanks for having me by!
