Synopsis:  At the age of sixteen, Abby is undergoing major household changes. Her mom is getting ready to remarry and her new step-brother is driving her insane. She is just trying to keep herself busy with school and her part-time job when a most deliciously handsome stranger moves to her little seaside town and won't leave her alone.
New arrival Wilhelm is unlike any other student at Abby’s school. His emerald eyes and tattooed body don’t truly reveal what he really is: a creature emerged from thousands of miles underground, seeking revenge, treasure, and a key that once belonged to an old enemy – a key Abby wears suspended from a chain around her neck. Why she has it is a mystery that Wilhelm will need to solve, and fast, in order to defeat a powerful mortal adversary.
As an attraction between Abby and Wilhelm develops, more creatures like Wilhelm are drawn from beneath the ground to Abby’s town; wreaking havoc as they offer Abby’s classmates the fulfillment of their deepest desires. Will Abby and her new family survive as a game of magical warfare is unleashed? Her ability to reverse Wilhelm’s bargain depends on it.

Excerpt from Troll:

Seconds went by and he found nothing, except a distraction. It wasn’t the human’s heartbeat drumming steadily on the second floor that he found unnerving, most likely it was the fact that she was reading a rhyme aloud – that wasn’t a human thing as much as it was a trolls’: “A kiss was made,” he heard her voice whisper, trying to ignore it. “A rose was dropped.” He looked up when she said the word rose. “A heart was snapped in half. The love of your life has left you in a world that’s dark and black.”
He moved toward the sound. Perhaps she was really one of his kind in disguise, here to spy on him.

1.    How long does it take you to write a book?
 My answer is different depending on the kind of novel I’m writing. Usually sci-fi fantasy manuscripts I can write very fast, having a manuscript finished in two to three months; sometimes even quicker. Contemporary romances usually take me a little longer.
 2.    Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Sometimes from dreams, other times from random thoughts in the middle of the day; I’ll get an idea and write it down and the story grows in my head from there. As a child and young adult I came up with so many story ideas that I still have boxes full of them in my house.
 3.    When did you write your first book and how old were you?
In the third grade when I was either eight or nine years old.
 4.    What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Exorcise, study biblical topics, go on dates, get together with my friends, and be around my family.
 5.    What does your family think of your writing?
 They are so supportive, my sister especially reads my work and as a professional graphic designer, she has made a lot of my novel covers.
 6.    How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
Including novels that have not been published, probably close to a hundred. My Shock Me series will always be my favorite group of books I think but you never know. All my novels are special to me.
 7.    Do you like to create books for adults?
Yes, I love to write for all ages and audiences.
 8.    As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
 The first career I thought I wanted was to be a nurse like my mom, and then later a holistic doctor. My career goals changed as I got older, turning towards film and media.
