In her spare time, she love to cook, decorate cakes and, of course, obsessively compulsively read. In our opinion, here at Dayreader Reviews, she rocks!
So the Heart Can Dance is my second novel. Although it is the second in my Hidden Beauty Series, it can be read as a standalone. In my first novel, Until the Stars Fall From the Sky, I introduced my readers to a group of women that formed the Girlfriend Posse. This is Tara's story of triumph over her past and her struggle to open herself up to love after she was date raped as a teenager. It's a story about love found, lost and reclaimed.
What does your writing process look like?
My writing process probably doesn’t resemble most people's. I use Dragon Dictate to write because I have spastic cerebral palsy and it is very difficult for me to type. Consequently, I have a microphone that makes me look like I work at a radio station and two sets of earphones. One has a feed from my microphone and the other is plugged into my cell phone and usually has a constant feed from Pandora. So, my writing sessions look kind of like this:
Oh, you chase Dragon's that is so cool! Is that anything like Puff the Magic Dragon?
Unless you count my unhealthy addiction to McDonald's iced tea, I don't think I have any strange writing habits-- except that I'm oddly nocturnal.
I may have an addiction to McDonald's sweet tea too!
Do you write naked?
No, I don't write naked. But, I do rock the PJ’s.
You are going to make a lot of people jealous talking about getting to stay in PJ's.
I am working on Joy and Tiers which is the next book in the Hidden Beauty Series. This is Heather and Ty’s story. It is scheduled to be released this summer.
What are your pet peeves or interesting things about you that you dislike?
My biggest pet peeve are people that are rude and then pretend that it was all a joke if someone calls on them out on it.
You wouldn't be caught dead where?
Real Housewives of ANYWHERE
Well, I was going to invite you to be on Real Housewives and Author with me but, I'm glad to know now that your not interested.
I think if you are married, you have to believe that your spouse is a version of Prince Charming otherwise you would go slowly insane.
Oh, that's the reason I'm have crazy? My husband is Prince Redneck Charming and let me tell you a dozen tires and a dozen flowers are NOT the same thing.
Tell us about a unique or quirky habit of yours.
I have the useless knowledge gene. I rarely forget anything about anything. This includes television reruns and Facebook posts.
My Kitchen Aid stand mixer. It’s hands down the greatest invention in the kitchen.
I would like to meet Abraham Lincoln and understand his thought process to better understand the bravery that are required for him to take the political risks that he took to do the right thing.
