Tell us a bit about your family.

I have a wonderful husband and we have been married 13 years. We also live with two beautiful bloodhounds.

What makes you happiest?

I’m always happiest when I’m home with husband and our bloodhounds but I also love to travel. Spending time on a beach with a good book is definitely one of my biggest pleasures in life as is watching movies.

What writing are you most proud of?

I am very proud of writing 12 novels in 12 months. I began this quest in November 2012 and I’ve almost completed my journey!

What books did you love growing up?

My two favorite books were Alice in Wonderland and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Both beloved books have wonderful female characters and teach wonderful life lessons.

What book should everybody read at least once?What is hardest – getting published, writing or marketing?

For me, writing is the easy part. I find selling my work a lot more difficult. It’s also extremely difficult to balance marketing and promotion with writing more books. There are only so many hours in the day.

Do you find it hard to share your work?

It can be extremely difficult to share one’s work with the world, especially when it is criticized. It’s interesting to me that so many people think nothing of tearing a book apart in “book reviews.” I wonder if they would say those same things to my face if they met me in person? I doubt it.

After Alex Died

This NEW ADULT ROMANCE contains MATURE LANGUAGE and SUBJECT MATTER and is intended for readers ages 17+.

“Don’t be someone who defines her life by someone else’s death.”

Dee Dee DeMarco’s brother, Alex, was funny, free-spirited and creative. He was also gay. Tormented by bullies, Alex killed himself on his 15th birthday.

Two years later, and now in college, Dee Dee believes getting a summer job working with a college-prep program for disadvantaged high school students is a stroke of luck, until she discovers that the guy assigned to co-lead her group is Cameron Connelly, a star basketball player and one of the bullies who tormented her brother to death. How can Dee Dee possibly spend the entire summer working so closely with one of the boys she blames for her brother’s death?

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I think this is a little story with a lot of heart. I hope you think so, too!
