Contemporary Romance with a dash of suspense

3. What inspired you to become an author?

I’ve always enjoyed writing, making up stories in my head. But then a day came when I wrote a story that I thought the world should read. A story of loss, a story of struggle, a story of real life.

4. What advice would you give to aspiring authors?

Sometimes the right thing to do is the wrong thing to do. You can’t expect to make it if everyone is the same. Be different, be you, and stay that way.

5. What do you like the most and least about being an author?
