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.
