Thank you so much for agreeing to take the time to sit down with some coffee and let me pepper you with questions, lol!
PM: When do you find the time to write? Where is your favorite place to write?
TS: Both of my kiddos are in school so while they’re there, I write. 😊 My favorite place to write is in my room. I have a nice bay window that I like to look out of while writing.
PM: If you couldn’t be a writer, what career path do you think you’d choose to be on?
TS: I’ve always thought it would be cool to be a librarian or own a book store. Not sure which one I would like more.
PM: Do you write stories more from your own experiences, or do you spend a lot time doing research on the type of characters your creating?
TS: It depends on the story. Some I can write from my own and others I have to do lots of research and ask people for their experiences.
PM: Do you have any family pets that currently own you?
TS: Lol, no I don’t. My boys however would love to own a dog.
PM: What was the last movie you went to see/favorite movie/favorite song?
TS: Last movie I went to see was Aquaman.
PM: What are you reading for fun right now?
PM: Oh, I have read all of those! Great stories!
PM: What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite gender?
TS: Making sure I’m being authentic to male. If my husband is home when I’m writing, I’ll ask him repeatedly if he would say things a certain way.
PM: Who was your greatest influence when you decided to become an author?
TS: Oh that’s such a tough question. I read so many authors and they all have influenced me in some way or the other. I would say contemporary romance wise, Becky Wade is the biggest influence. The emotion she packs into a story is one I hope I’ve learned and used in my own unique way.
PM: What is your favorite go to snack, midnight or any time?
TS: I love peanut butter M&Ms. I’m often sad when I don’t have any to snack on but thankful. My waist line doesn’t need any help. 😉
PM: How can readers keep up with you and your new releases?
TS: I would love if they subscribed to my newsletters. I’m going to be more intentional in connecting in the new year.
PM: Finally, coffee or tea? Cream, sugar?
TS: Black tea with milk and sugar. 😊
