How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it? 

That’s tough. Probably when I know the beginning and the end. All I have to do is fill in everything in between!

Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

The best answer is it’s Danyelle Ferguson’s fault for getting me involved in this crazy writing thing.

What is the name of your book?

Vocal Crush.

Tell us more about it. Perhaps a back cover blurb.

Can you ever out run a broken heart?

Lexi Court spent seven years traveling the world, living the nomadic Broadway life, in an attempt to outrun the broken heart Nick Rivers gave her. Now, there’s nowhere left to go.

When she accepted a position as a high school drama teacher in Las Vegas, Lexi hoped to get over Nick, find a nice guy, and settle down. But what should be a quiet summer gets turned upside down when Lexi’s best friend, Taffy, drafts her to be an emergency replacement coach on a televised vocal competition.

Feeling out of her league among the other three celebrity coaches, Lexi fights for the most promising contestants to be on her team. One note from a single voice shatters her summer. Nick unexpectedly auditions and joins Lexi’s team. With her vocal crush on him raging as strong as ever, she has nowhere to run from Nick’s dreamy looks or siren voice. 

Lexi has no doubt that Nick can win the competition. The question is does he want to win her heart as well or will he damage it beyond repair? 

Is there a book trailer for your book?

No. I’m not that high tech yet.

Do you have a favorite character, why?

Lexi. She’s a strong woman with emotional fault lines. I think she’s easy to relate to, even if she’s a little stubborn.

What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives?

I’m laughing because I have no expectations that my works are in any way life changing. The best I hope for is that they create a nice charming reality escape and leave the reader feeling pleasantly satisfied with the tale after.

Do you have any advice for authors trying to break into the industry?

Write. Get support. Don’t be afraid of your mistakes, you will learn from them. Own your writing.

What are your goals?

This month my goals are to promote my book and outline the next one for NaNoWriMo.
