I was born and raised in Little Falls New York. After graduation I moved to Long Island with my high school sweetheart and we were married shortly after. We soon added three biological children and adopted two through the foster care system to complete our family.
As a child I loved to read and write short stories. After taking a break from writing I got inspired again after watching an episode of the television series Supernatural and I couldn’t help but start writing again.
Tell us about your latest book.
Jenna Morgan is just like any normal teenager. That is until she turns seventeen and in a matter of a week Jenna is kidnapped, meets a mysterious young man named Alex and learns the shocking truth about her true heritage, which is why both demons and angels are hunting her.
Just when she comes to accept her new identity the unthinkable happens leaving Jenna devastated. She soon meets Dylan, a small town homeboy who quickly heals her heart. But when his life is threatened by the same monsters who tore her world apart, will Jenna be able to save him…or will she die trying?
What do you have coming out in the future?
Right now I am working on ‘Defiance’, which is book two in the ‘Revelations’ series.
What genre do you enjoy writing the most and why?
My favorite genre to write is fiction because with my hectic family and work life it’s nice to be able to escape into my own little dream world for a little while.
What authors inspire your writing?
The author that has inspired me the most is J.K. Rowling. When I get discouraged I think of her story and how many publishers turned her down before her book was finally accepted.
I love all her books, and try to keep in mind that if she can do it, then I can too.
How did you come up with the title of your book?
‘Revelations’ was originally titled Destiny, but as I got deeper into the story I decided to change it.
Just when she comes to accept her true identity the unthinkable happens leaving Jenna devastated. She soon meets Dylan, a small town home boy who quickly heals her heart. But when his life is threatened by the same monsters who had already tore her world apart will Jenna be able to save him…or will she doe trying?
‘Revelations’ is a series. Right now I’m working on ‘Defiance’, which is book two in the series.
What celebrity would you chose to play the main character(s) in the movie rendition of your book?
Jenna Morgan – Maia Mitchell who plays Callie on The Fosters
Dylan Jacobs – Dylan O’Brien who plays Stiles Stilinski on Teenwolf
Alex Collins – Daniel Sharman who plays Kol Mikaelson on The Originals.
Have you joined any writer’s groups?
I had looked around for writing groups, but none seemed to be the right fit for me. Then I found a group of ladies who also attended the same Supernatural Convention I did. When we realized we were all writers we created our won writing group.
What is the hardest part of the writing process for you?
For me I’d have to say the hardest part is when I finally get the chance to sit down and write and my muse decides to hide and writers block kicks in.
Do you have a careful plan when plotting your stories or do you just go with the flow?
When I start a story I have a plan on what I would like to happen and how I would like it to end. Unfortunately sometimes, well most of the time, my characters have a mind of their own and the story goes in another direction. Like with ‘Revelations’ when I originally planned that story there was no Dylan, but by the time I was done he became one of the main characters.
When did you know you truly wanted to give writing a shot?
I knew ever since grade school that I wanted to be a writer. It was always a dream of mine to see my name on the cover of a book and to be able to call myself an author.
