What would you like readers to take away from your book?
People should stop playing games with their “loved ones” because it could backfire.
Which character did you have the most fun writing about?
What was your greatest roadblock, and how did you overcome it? I had to decide how I wanted the plot to unfold. I actually has a couple of different plots.
Can you give us one do and one don’t for those aspiring to be a writer?
Sure. Do read what you like as often as you can. Don’t procrastinate. You will never know if you can succeed if you don’t try.
What one thing about writing do you wish other non-writers would understand?
That writing is a passion for most people. It is not a get rich quick scheme. Nine times out of ten, the money made on book sales will be steady and slow coming if you are anticipating riches. Writers do not make a lot of money, at least not without a great deal of experience. The ones who do are out of the ordinary.
What was the last book to keep you up at night reading it?
From the Outside In by Deidra D.S. Green
What do you do to make time for yourself?
I am a big proponent of “To Do Lists”. Without these, I wouldn’t be able to accomplish anything.
How can readers get in contact with you?
Trisha is trying to please her husband, James. But, she unknowingly bites off more than she can chew. As a result, she ends up kidnapped. The secrets in this love triangle reveal deadly motives. Will she be able to escape and get back to her loving family?
