This isn’t your mother’s sweet love story and it’s not your sister’s fairytale. Chaos Unleashed is dark, dangerous, and highly addictive. You will share in every experience the hero and heroine have, as their quest for the truth leads them to the hateful dark void that threatens to consume their souls. The question is who is the real hero and who is the villain?
Although I have always enjoyed writing, the dream to become a writer came when I read A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, in the sixth grade. My early works, not published, were in the form of children’s stories I would read to my two daughters. I divide my days between the real world and the ones I’ve created. My life and my characters keep me very busy in my Mid-Western scene, where I live with my husband, and my children (both human and furry).
What is your book about?
Blaze awakens to find men she doesn’t know looming over her, intent on capturing her, a handsome prisoner shares her fate, and the gut tightening knowledge that her memories have been stolen. That is just in the first two chapters.
Has any other author(s) inspired your writing?
I’m not sure I would say they inspired my writing, as in my work, per say, but they have help to spark the writing flame; Terry Goodkind, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allen Poe, and Shakespeare. No, it was not Romeo and Juliet, I like it, but my favorite was A Midsummer Night’s dream.
What do you think your writing style is? Each writer has his/her own style, unless they write formula romance. I don’t write formula, I write from the heart and what the muse tells me.
Do you have any suggestions for beginning writers?
Just write and never, ever, give up! Whether your dream is to a writer or an Olympian, never stop reaching for the dream.
When did you decide you wanted to be a writer?
I have always enjoyed writing, even from a young age. After I had my daughters, I used to write children’s stories for them and read them aloud at bedtime.
Why should readers consider your novel?
Because it’s a roller coaster they will never want to end, and this particular ride will go on for a while. As of right now, there are three, written, for this series. I have projected 5.
Were any of your characters a reflection of you?
Although, all of them have a part of me, Blaze is the biggest reflection. Great personality with a touch of attitude and a fierce protectiveness for those she loves.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I love Classic muscle cars and rock music! I know as a girl, it should be something more feminine, but oh how I love a restored muscle car with a purring engine, one that says “I’ll take you anywhere you wanna go, fast, and in style.” My dream car would be a 1969 Shelby GT 500!
What is your favorite part of the book?
The uniqueness of the characters. Heroes with an evil streak, and villains with a good heart? So, how do you tell who’s who? Good question!
How did you start your writing career?
With a pen and paper. It sounds simple, but that is the first step. If you have written nothing, there is nothing to publish and nothing for people to read and fall in love with. And of course, with a dream… I received my first contract, 3 years after writing Chaos Unleashed, on April 24, 2012. It’s a rough road, but it is one well worth travelling!
