What if groups like these were more than human? What if there were self-governing communities that lived on the fringes of modern society that were other; such as shifters, demi-gods, demons, werewolves, and earthbound ancient gods? This is not a new concept but I believe my personal spin on it has created an interesting universe for me to play in as an author. Do you have any unusual writing habits? As part of my writing life, I workout and weight lift because many of my characters are fighters and I want to personally experience that sort of physicality. I am also able to write anywhere and often do for hours at a time; coffee shops, the library, the sofa or in bed.
My husband bought them for me while I was finishing up The Love of Gods and they make me smile. Also around that time, I had written about half of The fate of Wolves so they were appropriate footwear for crafting a story about werewolves. What authors, or books have influenced you?
There have been many, but as to the style, Karen Moning and Christine Feehan are the two biggest influences. I just love their multiple series and their ability to create vivid characters. What are you working on now? I am currently handing over the second book in the Pale Series, The Fate of Wolves to my editor, while also finishing up the first draft of the third book, The Dreams of Demons.

What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books? Of course I keep a presence there, but it is a crowded field nine years later.
Their promotions and ads are very effective. Do you have any advice for new authors? Write a well crafted story and have it professionally edited. These are the two steps you as a writer have the most control over and it will set you apart from the masses.
What is the best advice you have ever heard? Just write the damn story. Too many times our internal-critic sabotages our progress.
