I pull my ideas from history and mythology and tweak them to fit modern day surroundings. I look around the world and thing what if? I am a dreamer at heart with a wild imagination. I just wonder what would have happened if mythology had been real, if the gods of old had really ruled and all those scary things that went bump in the night really truly were real.

How do you handle writer’s block?
I once had writers block that crippled me for over a year. It’s seriously not a joke, but also for me it was a mental thing and I really for that time had to sit down and make myself write. Other times when I have had it was because my characters or my muse were just not speaking to me and I just had to change my up like music I was listening to or put what I was currently working on away and work on something different for a couple of days.
All I can say is writer’s block sucks!!!
What inspired you to write this book?
Reaper Mine is book 3 and although I try to write my books as all stand-alone books these are characters that have been introduced in books previously so I already know who they are. Victor the hero is a very interesting character and the heroine is a great female character whom I thought was very relatable.
What’s the hardest part of being an author?
I’ll be honest, the marketing and the reviews are the hardest part. Being an author is a solitary job but the moment you publish your book you suddenly need to become this public figure. And as solitary individuals trying to get people to notice you and say nice things about you and your baby, (sorry your book) is difficult. And at times it can feel like an impossible task.
