Do you have any interesting writing habits or superstitions?
For some inexplicable reason, I write best on a story first longhand using sparkly gel pens. Yes- they must be the sparkly type. It doesn’t matter the color. If I don’t use the pens, the words don’t flow for me.
How does a new story idea come to you? Is it an event that sparks the plot or a character speaking to you?
Sometimes it is as simple as a dream. In the case of Sorrow’s Point, I went through this period of watching exorcism movies and got to thinking with all of the issues in the Catholic church these days, what if a defrocked priest was approached to perform an exorcism? The idea grew from there.
On a Friday night, what are you most likely to be doing?
Watching Bellator MMA on TV. I am a huge Mixed Martial Arts fanatic. My favorite fighter is Eddie Alvarez.
What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Hanging out with friends. I also crochet, sometimes play the harp. If my body decides to cooperate, I will pull out the ballet shoes and dance a little.
Do you have a bucket list? What are some of things on it?
Yes! I would love to travel to Romania and see the REAL castle that belonged to Vlad Tsepes. It is currently in ruins on the top of a mountain. I would also like to have a world tour for pointe shoe factories- almost every country has their own shoes. I would love to travel to India because of the culture and the food. I wouldn’t mind if I got to meet Robert Downey Jr., Robert Pattinson, and Jack Nicholson.

What was your favorite book as a child?
Oh, gosh. There are so many. But the one that stands out- that is still up there as one of my favorites today is Blood Thirst by L.A. Freed. It is a vampire paranormal romance before they were really popular.
If your book was turned into a movie, who would you like to play the main characters?
I would love for Robert Downey Jr. to play Jimmy Holiday. Jimmy has such a sarcastic wit, I think Mr. Downey would be great. Daveigh Chase would have been great for Lucy when she was younger. (She was the actress that played the Ring girl when she was a kid). I can see Kathryn Morris as Tor. And, finally, Gaspard Ulliel as Will.
