Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
I am a mother of three teenage girls. I was born in Wahiwa, Honolulu, Hawaii. My father is of Italian descent, my mother Hawaiian. My life consists of writing and raising my three girls.
Which writers inspire you? All Indie writers inspire me.
Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?
I recently wrote a novel called ‘Crazy on You,’ with a fantastic UK author James Duncan. It was a very wonderful experience and we are currently working on the second book of the series.
When did you decide to become a writer?
I don't think you ever decide when to be a writer, I believe you are born to be a writer. But I probably made the decision after I wrote a series of books for my daughters who pushed me to publish my work.
Do you write full-time or part-time? Full-time
Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea takes you? I work with no plot or outline, I get an ideal in my head and run with it.
Do you have a strategy for finding reviewers? No.
What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews? A bad review sometimes is good. When a reviewer tears apart your characters and is angry about the events that means they were engaged in the story and that is what you want people to do right? Engage in your story? I really try not to get too caught up in reviews, If I am happy with what I wrote it is good enough for me.
