- Who are you and what should we know about you in 50 words or less?
I write new adult science fiction and I'm represented by Brittany Howard of the Corvisiero Literary Agency. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Aeronautical Science, which basically means I'm a geek that loves flying airplanes. Naturally, I tend to write about aviation, hot flight instructors, and—let's not forget—kissing!
- Which one: chocolate or bacon?
That's a terrible decision to have to make. How could I possibly choose? Chocolate bacon, maybe?
- What is the name of your book and what is it about in 50 words or less?
The Apollo Academy out 8.6.13:
Eighteen-year-old Aurora Titon's dream to reach the stars becomes possible when she's accepted to train as a pilot-astronaut at the Apollo Academy. Everything seems perfect except her unreciprocated crush on a fellow student, the sexy astronaut bent on making her life hell, and the fact that someone keeps trying to kill her.

"There was only one place Aurora Titon ever felt free and in control--the cockpit. It didn't matter what she flew or what the destination was, only how her wings sliced through the air."
"The kiss was like every other experience she'd had with Sky. Demanding. Intense. Bruising. They made out like they were going to war, their lips caught in a desperate battle against one another."
"They flew like homesick angels as they tore their way up through the night above them, pressed firmly back in their seats."
"Zane’s heart raced and he didn’t think it had anything to do with the fact that he was about to jump from fifteen-thousand feet. Aurora, the girl he’d met the night before at Beat, the one he couldn’t stop thinking about, actually volunteered to jump first. He felt a sudden urge to stop her, but it was too late."
"If someone was trying to kill her—and from her most recent experience she could say they definitely were—why the obsession with asphyxiation?"
