When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? Earlier Feb 2012.
What are you working on now? I’m working on a NA Contemporary romance involving Biker dude, flirty roommate, and a girl that’s been running from past and can’t seem to trust anyone to hand over her heart. I’m a Panster, so my stories always change, but it’s secret so, shh… Oh, also Dracian Legacy, Book 2.
If you decided not to be a writer, what would your other dream job be? Why? Actually my dream job would be writing.
What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done in your life? Hmm… Probably attempting to go tubing at Bogus Basin. Yeah, I didn’t even get on that tube, I chickened out before I was pushed down the icy slop.
Who is the one person that has singlehandedly inspired you the most in your life? Wow… That’s a hard question. When I was younger I used to watch “Mahabharat”. There’s a character named Bheesma. His character believes in keeping promises regardless of the consequences.
What is one talent that you’re hopeless at, but you wish you had? Ice skating, Roller blades… Anything skill that links a non-friction ground with my body =)
What is one trait or physical characteristic that you are proud of/love about yourself? I treat others the way I expect to be treated.
Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? Hold you head high, keep kicking when you don’t think there’s anything to be hopeful about. It’d be worth it at the end. Trust me =).

Ren and Axel are caught between two powerful magical races: one destined to end the bloodshed, the other out for vengeance.
Seventeen-year-old Ren Pernell is prophesied to end the war between the Dracians and the Telalians. So when a Dracian, Axel Knight, is sent to find and bring back the prophesied one before she turns eighteen and Telalians discover of her existence, unexpected sparks start to fly between the two. Once Ren finds the truth behind Axel’s arrival, she wants everything to do with him and nothing to do with his mission.
Things prove to be difficult as Ren’s life is constantly threatened by forces that are beyond her control, including the leader of the Telalians.
With the clock ticking and Ren’s life in jeopardy, it is no longer just a mission for Axel. It becomes a personal endeavor to save the only one he’s ever loved. In a heart racing ending, they must find a way to evade the preordained war that won’t also end Ren’s life.
