Where are you from?

Currently, I’m from North Carolina. My family and I have lived just outside of Raleigh for about three years now. We love it here. The weather is wonderful and everyone we meet is so nice.

Tell us your latest news?

I’m excited to share the launch of Deceiving Bella, the latest novel in the Bodyguards of L.A. County series. Deceiving Bella is quite the adventure. Reed and Bella are wonderful characters that can’t wait to welcome you into their story world. I had so much fun with these characters. They make a great team. I found myself rooting for them from the very beginning. I hope you will too.

When and why did you begin writing?

I started writing about six years ago. I was never one of those people who yearned to tell stories from a young age. I didn’t even know I could write until fate showed me a new path. In 2010, my family and I relocated to Tennessee for my husband’s career. I ended up taking a job that made me very unhappy. After a few weeks of coming home in tears everyday, I resigned. While I was reading in bed one evening, I had an epiphany. I turned to my husband and told him I was going to write novels. I think he thought I had lost my mind, but he supported my dreams regardless. I wrote my first three novels all while learning the craft. In 2012, I launched the first three novels in the Bodyguards series. To my surprise, they went bestseller that very first weekend. I’ve never looked back.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I’m still not comfortable calling myself a writer. I still find it fascinating that I know how to sit down at my computer and tell a story. I’m not quite sure where the gift came from, and I don’t often like to explore it. I just feel lucky that I get to do what I love each and every day.

What inspired you to write your first book?

I’m not quite sure where the inspiration came from to write Morgan’s Hunter. I just remember being so thrilled to sit down and put my thoughts onto a page and bring a loose plot idea to life. Nothing will ever compare to telling the first story. Luckily, the awe never seems to go away.

What would you like my readers to know?

I’m currently researching and planning my next novel and first standalone title, Secrets Hidden In The Glass. I’ve wanted to share this story for quite some time now. I don’t have a lot of details as this idea is still in its infancy stage, but I’m looking forward to diving right in and getting this next novel ready to share.
