Getting NAked!

Hello beautiful readers!

Since this is my first official post on this blog, I thought I would take a page out of our book and post an interview with...myself.  Luckily, I talk to myself all day, so this isn't a stretch for me.

Sophia: Tell us a little bit about myself.

Me:  Well, I'm a midwest girl transplanted to the glorious Pacific Northwest.  I started writing a couple of years ago and never stopped.  I'm married with two little kids, and I love to travel, which is awesome because my job takes me everywhere.

Sophia: What do you do?

Me: *glances around* I'm a published YA writer.  Shhhh! Don't tell!  It's still a secret, but probably not for much longer.

Sophia: Okay, freak.  So why NA?

Me:  I started writing a couple of books years ago that fell more into the category of NA.  I didn't know what to do with them, because no one was accepting books like that and self-publishing was just gearing up.  At the time I had tiny babies and couldn't commit to doing it all myself so I focused on more established genres.  Now I finally have the opportunity to write NA, so I'm doing it!  I'm so grateful for the amazing trailblazers who turned NA into a real thing.

Sophia: YA or NA?

Me:  I want to write in a lot of genres, which is why I'm using a pseudonym.  Not to be all secret identity, but because my YA is very different than my NA.  And I'd loved to write some fantasy more geared toward adult.  That's my non-answer.  I just want to tell stories, preferably stories with kissing.

Sophia: Perfect date night?

Me: Don't laugh!  I would LOVE to go to one of those white sand beaches and skinny dip.  I might have to marry Edward Cullen first.

Sophia: Your NA debut is titled Catching Liam.  What's it about?

Me: Catching Liam is about a girl who has no interest in dating, but then one of her conquests wiggles his way into her life—and her heart.

Sophia: What's next?

Me: Catching Liam is the first of three companion novels all featuring best friends.  The second book will be out in September, and the third around the holidays!

Sophia: Thanks for having me to chat.

Me:  I'm very welcome.

  1. WOW! It was like watching Superman interview Clark Kent! Or vice-versa. <3

  2. My costume is about as undercover as Clark Kent's, so I'm afraid it would reveal my secret identity.
