Do you write a particular genre of books?
I’ve never been able to stick to just one genre. Variety is the spice of life, they say, and I do need that spice so I’ve dabbled with a lot more than a few genres. I would say that, if one doesn’t make some sort of distinction between LGBT and ‘straight’ romances, then it could be said I write romance most frequently. For me, romance is romance regardless of characters sexual orientation. The genres in which romance is usually paired with in my novels vary widely though.
How do you write so fast?
I’m not sure if I write particularly fast, although some people say that I do. I would say it has something to do with having far too many ideas and each of them competing so violently for my attention that I work long hours to get as many of them out as possible. This usually means long nights, very few hours of sleep and writing anywhere and everywhere.
Do you plan on writing a sequel to Despair & Decision?
I’m not incredibly fond of writing sequels or series of books. This is mostly because by the time I have finished a story I’m ready to jump onto the next new idea. Despair & Decision, though, is a possibility. It is one of those stories that I feel can be opened up on more. I don’t think it’s the end for Amara and Karina but they probably won’t be back in a hurry.
Do you listen to music while writing or do you find it distracting?
I’m a massive music lover and find it to be absolutely inspiring. I tend to listen to music a lot while writing, choosing music that suits the tone of the scenes I’m writing to put me in the mood for it. It distracts me on very few, extremely rare, occasions.
