When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? I think I’ve known my whole life, but by high school it was definitely my dream.

What are you working on now? Besides a mountain of Gilded edits, a new adult contemporary romance.

If you decided not to be a writer, what would your other dream job be? Why? Writing full time would be my dream job, but I do love my other job as a preschool teacher. Not many people get paid to finger paint! :)

What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done in your life? It may not be the scariest but right now I’d say the release of my debut novel terrified me. I had this overwhelming fear no one would like it.

Who is the one person that has singlehandedly inspired you the most in your life? My Dad. He encouraged me to pursue writing and without him I probably wouldn’t be published.

What is one talent that you’re hopeless at, but you wish you had? I wish I could paint (not finger painting, I rock at that) like real easel and paint kind of painting.

What is one trait or physical characteristic that you are proud of/love about yourself? Hmm… My sense of humor, I guess.

Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? Don’t be scared to ask question. Learn everything you can about writing. You have an amazing story to tell, don’t let it get overlooked because of writing errors.

Title: Dream On

Release Date: March 4, 2013

Her quest begins when she closes her eyes.

Emory Bennett owns a lucrative dreamwalking business. Trained in weaponry and Muay Thai, she spends her nights entering the dream realm resolving her clients’ nightmares, whatever they might be: bad guys, scary beasts, or the classic forgot-to-wear-my-pants nightmare. Her jobs get complicated when a gorgeous man keeps appearing requesting her help.

Grayson, a fellow dreamwalker, is stuck in the dream realm while a stranger inhabits his body. He needs Emory’s assistance in the waking realm, which he can’t visit if he can’t get back into his body.

Once Emory is convinced Grayson’s not a figment of her imagination, they concoct a plan to lure the body snatcher out. But as Emory begins to fall for Grayson, the line blurs between him and the stranger who inhabits his body. She must keep it together to get close enough to discover his secrets, or divide her very soul if she can’t bring the man she loves back.

    Oooh…those books sound really cool. LOVE the concept of the dreamwalker one. And the name Reni is adorable. I might have to steal that for one of my characters. Hope nobody minds. ;)
