As with all my books, I’ve love Fighting for Control to hit number one in Amazon’s Hot New Releases and place in the Top 100 on release day.
- A lot of authors I have noticed have music as a way to help with their writing. Is this something that you have used as well? If not what are some things you have used?

I’ve written paranormal romance and I’m currently writing contemporary romantic suspense. I really enjoy that genre and plan to keep writing it as long as it continues doing well.

I love Monica McCarty. She’s written some of the best Highlander Romance I’ve ever read, and I really like Kresley Cole when I’m in the mood to step into the paranormal world. I don’t read nearly as much as I’d like to. When I’m not spending time with my family, I’m usually writing my own stories.
