Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m married, a mom of 3 and live in Ontario Canada. I own a cattle farm, am an avidreader, love bowling, gardening and playing board games.

In your own words, tell us a little bit about your book?
A Sunday Kind of Love is a short story that centers around Sunday and Josh, two actors who starred in a movie together and fell in love. Circumstances tore them apart and it’s been years since they saw one another. But they’re both nominated for an Academy Award and are brought back together where they have to face the past, and decide their futures.

Can you tell us about the characters in your book? Who is your favorite?
Sunday is strong, fiesty, and is sick of the Hollywood life. She’s happy to have retired from the business and enjoyed the quiet solitude of her home in Nova Scotia, away from the noise and bright lights of the city.
Josh hated to leave her to fulfill his obligation to star in a movie in Afghanistan with plans of returning to her as soon as he could. He hates that they’ve been torn apart, and is hoping to reconcile with her now that he’s back. He’s romantic and sweet.
Both characters are my favorites. I have always loved unrequited love stories, and these two have a lot to work out.

What makes your book different from other books out there in the same genre?
I think it’s a bit different because while there’s miscommunication, there’s also a pure honesty into the romance, and who the characters are. They are down to earth and are willing to put others first. It’s simply a pure romantic story.

What led to you going “indie”?

Is Writing your full time profession?
Yes, I try to keep a Mon-Fri 9 to 3 schedule and take some weekends off. With all my kids still in school full time, I have to be flexible but try to make sure I write as much as possible when they’re not around.

Do you have any quirks or processes that you go through when you write?
I need absolute quiet, my carafe full of tea, with carrots and M&M Peanuts in a bowl next to me. I need food after all. *g*

Who are some of your favorite authors?
I have many, and I mean many! To name a few….Nora Roberts/JD Robb, Sara Brookes, Cherry Adair, JoAnne Kenrick, Jaci Burton, Sandra Brown. The list is endless.

What are you reading now?
I’m not currently into anything but next book on my list is Olivia Starke’s “Dirty Love”.

What advice can you give to struggling writers?
Read books that are in the genre you plan to write in. Don’t worry about anything except getting the words out of your head. When you’re done, self-edits are complete, then find good CPs(critique partners) to give you feedback on the story, listen to them, let them be tough on you/the story, then go from there. But the main thing, is get the story(ies) written. And don’t give up. Ever!
