|About The Author||
I live in New York with my wonderful husband and two amazing children. In addition to being a mom and wife, I work full-time as an accountant during the day and as a writer at night. I love to read most genres, but romance novels and books with fast-paced, complex plots are my favorites. That was why I wrote Evitable Destiny – to combine the steamy elements of romance with the speed of action books. I wanted to shock my readers and keep their interest until the final page.
|Have you always wanted to be a writer? Why?||
Since I was young I have loved both math and writing, but even after I chose an accounting career to pay my bills I still dreamed of becoming an author. Sometimes my imagination flies so high I am unable to curb it, and writing down my thoughts is the best way to come back to earth. I just love the question, “What if?” It’s funny how my children’s teachers are always concerned about their daydreaming in the classroom, and after I tell them that it’s OK, because I do the same in business meetings, they stare at me in shock.
|When your writing where do you draw inspiration from?||
My inspiration comes out of nowhere. Some days I have it and I write through the night without noticing when the morning comes. When it leaves, I find myself editing one sentence for a week and still not getting it right.
|What interested you to write the genre you write?|
|I am an energetic person, and since I was a child I’ve always loved books with complex plots and a lot of action. I had thought of romance as a grandma’s genre, where a man and woman would just sit under a tree holding hands, although I had never read a romance myself. That was until a few years ago, when a friend gave me a contemporary romance novel to read. This book completely changed my perception of the genre and opened my eyes to something new that I hadn’t known existed (and no, I’m not a grandma yet). Steamy scenes and an interesting story kept my interest until the end, but I skipped a lot of pages where the plot was dragging. The size of the book could’ve been cut in half and I wouldn’t have missed anything. When I finished, and I’d read a lot of similar books, I kept thinking that I would love to read a contemporary romance novel where I wouldn’t be able to skip a page without losing a piece of the story, so I decided to write one.|
|What is your method for getting around writers block?||
The best way that works for me is to think non-stop about real life, movies, books, and to constantly ask myself, “what if?” Thinking keeps the brain going and when it’s going, it always comes up with something great.
|Do you have any advice or words of wisdom for aspiring writers?||
Don’t give up, and if you want to succeed, be ready for a tremendous sacrifice.
|Where do you see yourself in five years?||
In five years I want to be a full-time writer. To become one, I will have to quit my accounting career because days are not long enough to do both.
|How can your readers follow you and find out about your books?||
Evitable Destiny is my debut novel and my only book right now. It’s available on Amazon, in both paperback and Kindle e-book formats. I have started writing my second novel, but it will take over a year to complete. Your can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or check out my author page on Amazon.
