What’s your name and what genre would you consider your books to be?

Piper Kay and I write in the MM genre (gay romance)

 

Tell me about your book. How did you come up with that (story, angle, idea)?

I was talking with a friend and it just popped in my head, usually it comes in dreams, so this was different for me so I ran with it.

 

Glorious Disaster (1)

 

How did you get interested in writing this particular genre (historical novels, mysteries, sci-fi, children’s books, etc.)?

Well, I believe love is love period, doesn’t matter if it’s straight or gay. The challenges my guys have to go through and fight just to be together proves that love.

 

What kind of research did you do for this book?

I didn’t do a lot of research with this book, because it takes place in a town near me. I have done extensive research on other books, so being close to home helped a lot with that.

Can you tell me about your Series?

This book isn’t a series, but I do have series out there, The Passion Series, Eight Second Cowboy Series, Invicta Series and Tattoo series. This particular book is just about a man who feels like his life is a train wreck. He pushes people away for fear of being hurt. He’s scared to give love a shot.

 

Where did you get the inspiration/idea for your series?

Just popped in my head. Characters talk to me and I follow behind them in my head with a pen and paper and let them tell me the story. I just take notes. lol

What’s a typical working day like for you? When and where do you write? Do you set a daily writing goal?

I have absolutely no routine at all. It seems like every time I try it, I go way out of balance, so I don’t set them anymore. When the character talks, I listen and write accordingly. Total pantster here.

 

Do you have a new book in the making and if so, what’s the name of your upcoming book?

Kro

How important are character names to you in your books? Is there a special meaning to any of the names?

Well this is how I do it. I get a basic idea of their looks, and then a name usually comes to me. I go look up the eaning to make sure it fits and then waa-la.

 

Where do your ideas come from?

They just hit me, usually through dreams.

Is there a genre that you’ve been wanting to experiment with?

Yes, paranormal, and I’m working on that, but it’s hard

 

What is the hardest part of writing for you?

Time, not having enough time in the day to get the characters down on paper.

 

What do you think of book trailers? Do you have a trailer or do you intend to create one for your own book?

I love them, their like movie trailers, just a tease.

 

 

What do you consider to be your best accomplishment?

Having children

 

What’s the best thing about being an author?

Get to set your own hours???

 

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Oh, writing even more hopefully

Have you always liked to write?

I didn’t start writing until 2009, had never tried it and I found my way to it.

 

What writing advice do you have for aspiring authors?

Pen to paper, just write it down or get it on a document and never erase your first draft-you build on that. Believe in yourself and never out grow you own britches.

 

If you didn’t like writing books, or weren’t any good at it, what would you like to do for a living?

Be a veterinarian

 

 

Do you read reviews of your book(s)? Do you respond to them, good or bad? How do you deal with the bad?

I do read reviews, but never respond except to like them. Responding is a big no-no in the author industry

 

What is your least favourite part of the writing / publishing process?

Marketing and promoting

What are you working on now?

Kro, a supernatural book

 

Why did you choose to write in your genre? If you write in more than one, how do you balance them?

I was actually dared to write in it. I was told I have a strong male voice and way of putting things and a friend asked me to give it a try. I loved the genre.

Do you have any favorite authors or favorite books?

Too many to name them all, but love Anne Rice, Author Poppet, and TL Travis

 

Of all the characters you have created, which is your favourite and why? My favorite?

That’s like trying to pick a favorite kid. I can’t do it, I love them all.

  

Does writing energize or exhaust you?

Both

What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?
