When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
I loved creating stories at a young age. It never occurred I actually wanted to do this as something professional until Senior year in High School.
What genre do you write and why?
I love to write fiction, mostly mysteries, but anything fiction!
Tell us about your latest book.
My latest book would be ‘District One Stand By: On the Bleeding Edge of Change’ which is the sequel to ‘Firefighter Down, District One’.
It begins two years after ‘Firefighter Down, District One’ ended in the story sense.
It begins with Catisha Spadoni two years after she solves her father’s case. She gets a phone call about her old fire station in New York City, being blown up. At the same time she is trying to solve the case, she isn’t only trying to save her relationship, but beginning to try to fight domestic abuse that is happening.

I am promoting with Social media, blogs, radio, news, television shows, newspapers and magazines.
What formats is the book available in?
Hard Copy, however my publisher and I are discussing e-book form.

I love being outdoors, cook and paint. I also like to search for gems. I love to look for Maine amethyst and tourmaline during the summer months after a good rain.
Who are your favourite authors?
My favorite author would be Ray Bradbury
What advice do you have for other writers?
Never to give up no matter how many rejections you get!! If you believe in yourself and know you can tell an awesome story then do it! Get out there and don’t be afraid!
