You have more than 60 books released in more than 20 countries. What’s it like to have fans all over the world?
What a thrill to have the opportunity to touch readers around the globe. I’m not only an author, but also an avid reader myself. I treasure the escape of a great read and am honored to offer that entertainment to others.
What inspired you to make the move from theater school director to romance author?
The two actually share many similarities – the world building, characterization, plotting, staging, creating tension. I’m building a world with words rather than on a stage. My theater background also has a heavy emphasis in directing and literature.
Can you tell us about your animal rescue work?
Ah, my heart and passion – I’ve been an animal rescuer for over a decade through fostering and serving on a shelter board of directors. Recently, I took a big leap of faith with some close friends and started our own rescue – The Sunshine State Animal Rescue. We’re a 501c3, non profit, no-kill rescue, all foster-home based. While we do traditional adoption placements, we also specialize in identifying animals at shelters that have working dog potential and partnering them into service/therapy/search and rescue placements. It’s been a life changing experience. FMI check out our facebook page:
If PURSUED BY THE RICH RANCHER were made into a movie, who would you cast in the starring roles?
Timothy Olyphant as Alex McNair – definitely! And Emma Stone as single mom Nina Lowery.
What are you working on next?
Exciting news! I’m starting a new series for Harlequin Desire called the “Bayou Billionaires” - a football family dynasty that gives the books a sports industry setting. I’m writing the launch book, award winning author Joanne Rock is writing the second. She and I will continue to alternate writing books in the series so readers can have a book a month in the series. The series begins in early 2016 with HIS PREGNANT PRINCESS BRIDE
