Where are you from? 

I grew up in the burbs if NYC, but I’ve been living in Long Island for about fifteen years.

Why do you write?
Because I have to!  LOL.  These people in my head want out. They want life and they want their story told.

What inspired you to write your first book?
It was a dream that I couldn’t stop thinking about.  After about two weeks, I made up an elaborate story that stemmed from the dream.  I still haven’t published it yet though.

What genre do you typically write?
I write adult contemporary romance and male romance. 

Do you feel like you have a specific writing style?  
 I like third person and I like POVs from both MCs.   I think it gives the a second layer of depth than a single POV offers.

How long does it usually take you to write a book?
I think six months is realistic goal, but there are a lot of factors, such as time constraints.

What do you do to conquer writer’s block?
I move on and go back to the scene.  You generally know how the story is going to progress but sometimes there is a stumbling block in your way.  Don’t get bogged down on that one tough scene.  It’ll come to you later.

What book are you reading now?
I just finished a short scifi by Ashlyn Forge called The Caterpillers.

What are your current projects?
My current WIP is Between A Rock and A Hard Place (Radical Rock Stars Book Two)  it pick up where The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Stars Book One) leaves off. And it’s HOT!


Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?  
The most challenging thing is trying to please everyone.
