- Epic adventure of friendship, magic and legends that will make you search your soul to find what’s most important in life, love or destiny.
What was your favorite scene to write in Lies?
- I can’t give it away, but it’s near the end of the book in the Locker.
What was the hardest scene to edit out?
- The ending. I changed it a million times. I knew how I wanted it to end as the writer, but then when I read it as the reader, I hated it. Plus I had to take my characters into consideration. So the ending was hard and I condensed and changed it a ton. With the help of my BETA readers and editor I think it’s at a great place now.
How many books will be in the Geneva Project series?
- I plan to have 4 books in the series. I’m currently writing #4 right now. I love the characters so much that I’m going to give some of them spin offs and I have an idea for a prequel.
Are you currently working on anything else?
- I’m co-authoring a middle grade book with Jamie M. Engle. I’m also co-authoring a children’s book with N. Jane Quackenbush. And I’ve started a novella that may have turned into another fun YA series. It’s about a drama student that ends up falling into some of her favorite plays.
Which authors inspire you?
- Oh man, so many. JK Rowling because, c’mon Harry Potter. And so many that I’ve recently met, because they’re all incredibly kind people that are truly following their dreams and happy to share it with you.
What is currently in your tbr pile?
- That pile is overwhelming. I don’t really get time to read too much these days because I’m so busy writing! I have some books by Stephanie Erickson and Amy Bartol on my desk that I’m determined to get to next.
What is the best book you have read recently?
- Anything Cassandra Clare. I guess I finished the Infernal Devices series last and those books made me cry so they’re up there on the Favs list.
