I like writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate high rollers. I try to write characters who aren't cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. I love writing characters who are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love.
I’ve been pretty fortunate in life to experience some amazing things. I’ve lived in France, traveled throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand. I am a mom to an amazing little boy. I’m surrounded by friends and family. And although I love holding a book in my hand, I absolutely adore my ereader, which I’ve named Ruby. I love to hear from readers so I’ve made it really easy to find me on the web.

Writing a character organically means coming up with a complete back-story and history on imaginary people. Motivation to drive the story forward and obstacles for drama must be overcome and the only way to do that is to flesh out a character’s history.

This is linked to your Red Wolves Motorcycle Club series. Why did you choose to write this as a spin-off?
Sometimes, a secondary character can be really charming simply because there’s no pressure to develop their backstory. They can be larger than life. So when I wrote the fourth Red Wolves MC book, Lily Roar, I introduced a new character named Romeo.
