Tell us all about you and your writing!!
I’ve never had an agent or a publisher. I’m one of the few very successful indie authors who’ve never been traditionally published. One of reasons for my success is that I’m a very prolific writer: I currently have 15 titles in English, and I have started getting my books translated into other languages. So far I have 6 titles in Spanish, 5 in German, and 2 in French with lots more coming this year. I love vampires and other supernatural creatures, demons, and immortals. And I love writing hot sex scenes. That’s really what my readers know me for: hot sex. I’ve hit the top 100 Bestseller lists at many retailers, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo. It’s a great feeling to know that there are so many readers out there who enjoy my books. It keeps me motivated to write the next book, and the next, and the next. At this point I can’t see an end to my popular Scanguards series yet. There are still so many characters who deserve their own book, and as long as my readers want to read about them, I’m going to write about them.
Any new releases that we should be watching for?
Quinn’s Undying Rose, Book 6 in the Scanguards Vampires series will be out in late summer, sometime in September.
