FAQ

Not for the foreseeable future. The series doesn't sell very well and writing is my full-time job. I never say never, but not now.

Yes, but…let me explain. The AMT series was my very first published series and it has a lot of rookie mistakes. As such, I'm completely rewriting the first book (new title: The Fire Talent) and will heavily edit the remaining books. Only once I do that will I write the fifth book. I really would like to get The Fire Talent finished by the end of 2020, but I can't make any promises.

Yes, but I don't know when. As much as I love the series, not many people read it since I'm known for paranormal and science fiction romances. Ideally, there will be two more books in the series. But at the very least there will be one more, Little Scottish Surprise, about Alex and Elena.

Ha, I wish! But it's incredibly difficult to make that happen. I'd rather spend my time writing new stories than chasing something that could or could not happen.

Yes is the short answer. All series should come to an end at some point. However, I want to write about the kids all grown up in a series tentatively called Stonefire Dragons Legacy. So I don't see them going away anytime soon.

Maybe. I'm currently rereading ALL my dragon books and taking down notes as I go. A companion guide isn't my top priority, but it's a possiblity.

I produce my own audiobooks and it's incredibly expensive and time-consuming. I try to produce the ones that should earn back my investment, meaning people want to buy or borrow them. Recently, I've been focusing on writing more stories instead of making new audiobooks. That being said, I hope to catch up with my dragon-shifters before too much longer.

I have one series idea that I absolutely love, but I'm keeping it secret for now. It's a paranormal romance series that will involve witches, wolf shifters, and vampires, among others. If everything goes to plan, I want to launch it in 2021.

From just about anywhere, really. Although traveling is my best form of inspiration. You'd be surprised what makes it into a book!

Unfortunately, due to time constraints and possible legal implications, I can't. I suggest finding a good beta reader who will give you honest feedback. And once your story is as good as it can be, please find a good editor. Mine makes my stories that much better, and an editor can help with yours, too.

In my late teens and early twenties, I wrote fanfiction, so I know how fun it can be! As long as you don't try to SELL the fanfiction for money, I have no problem with it. 

Most people don't like my advice because it comes down to hard work, a willingness to be flexible, and stubbornness. I started writing stories as a teenager and kept at it until I finished my first book at age 29. That book will never see the light of day, but finishing your first book is the hardest thing you'll ever do. After that, you need to write a story that will resonate with readers and then learn how to market it. There are many books out there to help you figure out how to do that, so go take a look!

I'll add that reading a lot and writing a lot are extremely helpful, too. While there are some authors who never read the genre they write, I love romance and I think it shows in my books. (It's also a lot easier to know what readers like!)
