Let’s start with one that I know everyone will want to know – Do you have plans for a new book? Is this book part of a series?
Yes, Silver Demon. This is Book 2 of The Silver Series. It picks up right where Silver Knight ends.
How did you come up with the title and cover design?
The title really has several layers. One is that darkness is growing (night) and one is that of a warrior (knight).
Who designed the cover of your book?
The cover design went through several incarnations. Eventually, Stormi Johnson of Lightning Book Promotions suggested the picture of the girl on the cover (which I thought was simply inspiring). I took the picture and modified it somewhat, putting it together with the smoke, and ta da!
Where do you see yourself in five (5) years?
The most successful writer on the planet! You can never dream too big, right?
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Right here in America! We have so many freedoms and have so much that it is a blessing.
Is there an Author that you would really like to meet?
Andre Norton. Unfortunately, she past away in 2005.
What books have most influenced your writing most and why?
Science fiction and fantasy books have had the most influence on me because they would take current, relevant issues and present them in a way to make you think without slamming it over your head.
Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover?
I like ‘em all.
Are you a self published (Indie) Author or big trad published?
Indie and proud of it.
What can we expect from you in the future? ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?
I think I will always write fantasy and it will probably always be appropriate for young adults, as well as adults, simply because there’s enough sex and cursing out there already-no one needs to hear it from me, too.

When seventeen-year-old Diana recognizes an elderly priest in a video on YouTube, she realizes that reincarnation is real and that she’s been alive before! Every night in her dreams, she relives her past learning that it’s kill or be killed. Now a bishop at the Vatican whom she saved in another life calls on her once more. She is needed to help defeat evil within the catacombs of Rome. But when she arrives in Rome, she meets Alexander – the man of her dreams! Through the centuries she has loved him…betrayed him…been killed by him. Will she give him another chance or this time will she strike first?
In the 1990s, I began teaching adults to use computer software, hardware, and networking. After several years, my clients became younger and younger until I found myself tutoring high school dropouts to pass the GED. I found working with at-risk teenagers so rewarding that I changed my undergraduate major to Education.
Upon graduating from the University of South Alabama with a B.S., I began teaching high school history and continue to teach history classes online. Always wanting to encourage students’ creativity, reading and writing skills, I have put together a collaborative storytelling effort at http://telling-tales.wikispaces.com.
