1. Can you tell us something about you and your book Reconnaissance?
Reconnaissance is the second book in my Paradise Reclaimed trilogy. You can read the books out of order, though, and it will stand alone without getting too complicated. It’s about the colony that has landed on Paradise 21. In the first book, the threat was so small, they couldn’t see it. So this time around, I wanted to give my readers giant monster aliens for fun!
2. When have you decided that you want to be a writer?
I’ve written all my life, and I’ve always enjoyed reading. I started writing seriously about seven years ago. My first book, The Voices of Ire, took two and a half years to write! Now I can write a book in 2-3 months depending on the length and genre.
3. Where do you find your inspiration for your novels? (If it’s not a secret) Have you ever found it in your real life?
All of my books are a part of me and my experiences. I find inspiration everywhere I go, but especially in movies. When I come home from going to the movies, it’s like my entire brain is on fire.
4. Do any of your fictional characters resemble you?
All of them have part of me in them- even the bad ones! Which part, I’m not telling!
5. Which book is the first one that you’ve read?
My very first book ever? Maybe it was Green Eggs and Ham. I’m not sure. I read a lot of Tad Williams and Christopher Pike growing up as a teen.
6. Do you have a favorite book?
I LOVE Jane Eyre. I really identity with her character and admire her choices in the book.
7. If you were about to leave in a trip which book would you take with you?
I’d take my shiny new Ipad because it has a ton of books on it! If I had to choose one, though, I’d pick Game of Thrones because that’s taking me forever to read, and it would occupy my time for a while. It’s great writing and a great story, but it’s not easy reading.
8. Tell us one thing you’d like to change at people from nowadays.
I’d LOVE for people to be more polite and more positive. You can achieve so much in life just by thinking positively.
9. Is there a moment in your life you’d like to live again?
The day I went to the Star Wars exhibit at the Boston Museum of Science. That day was the bomb.
I hope you enjoy my book! I recommend it to anyone looking for a happy ever after story. If you enjoy Star Wars and Star Trek, then you’ll like this book.
