1. Hi! Welcome to my humble blog of all things bookish! I would like for us to start by getting to know you. Give us a short bio, please!
I’m currently blooming near Augusta Georgia with my hobbits and hubby. I immigrated to the U.S. from Germany when I was four and grow up in Montana. Occasionally being told to go back where I came from, I decided, as cruel as that sounded coming from the judgmental bigots of my very small town, it wasn’t that bad of an idea. I landed back in Germany on my 19th birthday and stayed for a fantastic 17 years. I hope everyone gets the chance to go back where they came from at some point in their life because that means they went somewhere in the first place.
2. To get to know you just a little bit better, I’d like to ask you some this or that questions. Answer 5 of these and explain why you chose this or that, or maybe an entirely different alternative!
Tea or Coffee?
It’s a nice cuppa tea for me please and thank you. With a spot of cream. Here in Georgia hot tea is not really something you order it’s all about the sweet tea, which I like half and half with a squeeze of lemon and lots of crushed ice.
Morning or evening?
I’m a morning person, not annoyingly so but my energy is in the A.M. I turn into a pumpkin at 9pm.
Library or museum?
Museums, as a child I wanted to be anything with ologist at the end of it. Archaeologist… Paleontologist… Egyptologist…
Pen and paper or computer/phone?
Computer, unfortunately my handwriting is atrocious and I’m dyslexic. But I can’t do too much on the PC, it gives me motion sickness!
Standalone or series?
Standalones that have the potential to cross over. And physical book, unless it’s an episodic I can’t look at a screen that long.
3. What is your most recent release? Give us a short presentation, cover, and a link for where to buy it!
The Immortal is my debut book it’s a contemporary, dark fantasy, filled with action and adventure. Starting off as a nightmare I couldn’t stop thinking about. I decided to write a paragraph which turned into 46,000 words in six weeks. If I could pick one word to describe my book it would be, satisfying. The Immortal is easily devoured whole, but I recommend savoring it over a long weekend.
Here’s the book trailer:
Order at any local bookstore, or online Barnes and Nobels, Amazon, or Google Books. I also have a secret bookstore set up directly with the printing company
4. What real-life inspiration do you draw from, and what are your primary fictional sources of inspiration (books, authors, films, music, etc.)? Name a few!
One of my characters in The Immortal has an orange cat named Apollo. Apollo is a real person, he’s one of my beta readers and has a big reddish beard. I put his name in to see if he really read it and the name stuck.
5. What is your writing routine? If you have one, give us the run-down!
Drink a glass of water, set up my laptop on the kitchen counter. Listen to Neil Gaiman say, “There are no rules.” Write a few sentences, get distracted by my hobbits, daydream about what I will write next and sneak back to my laptop when I figure it out.
6. If you could go back and give yourself one piece of advice as you started out on the path to becoming an author, what would it be?
It’s a trap! But you’re going to walk into it anyway.
7. Last but not least: where can we find you? Drop those links!
