Hi Lisa, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
Hi there, lovely to be here today. My entire life revolves around the characters in my head, and in this book my readers get to meet Caden, a wonderfully shy, hermit-like artist who has good reason for hiding from the world; and Sean, a self-obsessed Alpha who needs a good mate to kick his behind occasionally. The two men meet, they have issues, and both of them have to go through a lot of personal growth before they get their HEA. I was really pleased with the way these two finally got their heads straightened.
What is the nicest thing anyone has ever said about your writing?
I had one woman tell me on Facebook that she had told her husband to get take out for the kids, for dinner, because she was reading one of my books and she couldn’t be bothered doing anything else until she finished it. I thought that was lovely.
Are you a full-time or part-time writer? How does that impact your writing?
I write full time, and can go sometimes twenty days or more before I take a day off. I really love what I do. I think that helps with the flow of my stories, because I don’t do an outline or anything else like that – I just sit and write. I am lucky that I don’t have to worry about an outside job that could interrupt my thought processes.
What interested you about the theme of this book?
Strangely enough, Caden’s being hidden away from the world came from my own children claiming I am a bit of a hermit. He has issues meeting new people and lives with a lot of fear, and I think that is more common in our busy society than people realize. I liked exploring that idea, and the most effective ways of combatting it.
What is the most difficult part of writing for you?
Finishing a book. Honestly, I have tried so many times to write 100 page stories, and it doesn’t happen. My characters beg me for one more scene, then just one more and before you know it, my book is over 200 pages long.
Name your four most important food groups.
There are four of them? Chocolate…chocolate…chocolate and then chocolate.
