I’m dying to know more about your  novel,Unwrapped.  Can it be read as a standalone? Is it part of a Series? Can you give me some details? 
Yes, Unwrapped can be read as a standalone. It has some crossover characters from the Beg For It Novels, but there’s nothing that makes it so you have to read the other books. 

Where do you draw your inspirations from?
Everything! The people I know, memories, movies, music, great scenery. I love to set my books in romantic locations, so I draw upon places where I’ve lived or visited or just wanted to visit! 

Who are your favorite authors? 
Jane Austen, hands down. I know, she doesn’t exactly have steamy sex scenes, but she does have the wit and build up like nobodys business. And the character development and did I mention the humor? I can’t get enough of Jane. In fact, I think I have to watch Persuasion tonight. 

Was there any particular book which gave you the writing bug? 
Pride and Prejudice as an adult. But I have to give a special shout out to the Sweet Valley High Books, which as a middle schooler I decided to do some fan fiction and write some spin offs. The start of my romance writing career! 

Speaking of potentially “embarrassing” subjects, what’s the strangest thing you had to research for your writings? 
Kinky sex I haven’t actually done myself. You can find some crazy stuff on tumblr and once you’ve seen it it’s hard to unsee. LOL I know what you mean I have seen some disturbing things on tumblr 

Research aside, what’s the hardest part of being an author? 
I’m a pretty social person so the hours spent alone are sometimes a little long. But I do tend to get lost in my little writing world, then look up five hours later and wonder what happened? 

How would you describe your writing style? 
Funny, casual, and hopefully authentic to how people speak and experience life. 

Any “fun facts” about the book? 
It’s set in New York City over the holidays, which I find so romantic. And it features my favorite holiday song, Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is You.” Sung very badly. But it still does the trick. I won’t give away any more! 

Have you had any odd fan encounters? 
I’ve LOVED all my fan reach-outs. It gives me such a thrill to hear from someone in Denmark or Australia who tells me they love my books, or someone who tells me they really connected with a character. It’s the best feeling in the world. 

Is there anything you’re currently working on now? 
Two books actually, a novella set to release as a part of an anthology for Valentines Day (can’t wait!) and the 2nd All In book about Liam, set on Nantucket. Yummy yum. 

Any Inspiration or Guidance for Aspiring Authors? 
Just write! Don’t be too self-critical, you’ll just tie yourself up in knots. Enjoy the process, be gentle with yourself for not being perfect, and just get it out there! Good for you!
