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.
