1. Tell us about your upcoming/recent release.
The Gathering released on Monday, July 20th. It's the second in my Tales of The Rikashi Series. This installment follows Aer's brother, Shirak as he tries to figure out a puzzling prophecy and his feelings for the daughter of an enemy.
2. What gave you the idea for your upcoming/recent release?
I kinda got the idea from a Dragonforce song.
3. How much time does it take you to finish a book?
It depends. For The Quickening, I wrote the first draft in 30days for NaNoWriMo. It took a few months to edit that on my own and then a few more with Lyrical. The Gathering was written in about three months. The same is happening for a new series I'm working on. The first book I finished in about a month but the second is a little slower.
5. What is your favorite part of being a writer?
I love plotting. There is no greater feeling than talking out your ideas with your writing buddy, learning about your new world and characters.
5. What is your least favorite part of being a writer?
I really don't like coming up with blurbs and excerpts. I would say that's the hardest part.
6. What are you working on now?
Mulling around in my brain is the fourth installment in the Rikashi Series and what I'm actually writing is the second of my new series, The Tarot Kings
7. All writers started out as readers - who're your favorite authors?
Anne McCaffery and Stephen King are my two oldest favorites. My newer favorites are Angela Knight and Elizabeth Hoyt
8. What are your goals as a writer?
Hmm…I would have to say that my goals are to grow as much as I possibly can and maybe one day be able to write full-time. I would love to be able to focus 100% on my writing but right now, still working for The Man LOL.
Sorry about the formating - Can't seem to get blogger to work right today.

My third release in the Special Agent Series, The Darkhorse Conspiracy, which was released on July 9th, at Red Rose Publishing, will introduce you to the sexiest special agent to date. James Kelly is charming, witty, and very good at his job. But he’s got his hands full with the Stephanie Alexander case.
Stephanie Alexander is an international journalist who is missing, and under suspicious circumstances. The beautiful blue-eyed blond and ex-fiance of Simon Fox, owner of The Darkhorse Stables, who raises Kentucky Derby winning thoroughbreds, has vanished. James must find her, if she’s still alive, and finds himself smack-dab in the middle of a terroristic conspiracy that is a threat to the security of the entire eastern seaboard of the United States. Will he find her in time? Can they work together to find the answers they need so that the State Department can defray The Darkhorse Conspiracy? You can find out all the answers to these questions when you read, The Darkhorse Conspiracy, available NOW at Red Rose Publishing (http://www.redrosepublishing.com/).
Before James Kelly and The Darkhorse Conspiracy came about, there were two other sexy agents and great books in this series. First came the spellbinding romantic suspense story, Eureka Point, and the most romantic and caring agent, Tom Owens, who is assigned to protect a breathtakingly beautiful and talented woman, Katie, who is being hunted by her jealous and deceitful husband, as well as by a dangerous South American drug cartel. Next was the deeply dark and twisted story of best-selling romance author Maggie Tyler who is being stalked. My Very Special Agent has the sexy and ruggedly handsome FBI Special Agent Michael O'Leary on the case, who has eyes for the beautiful author, but whose first priority is to keep her safe. There is a definite sensual and emotional chemistry between them and the reader desperately wants them to get together! All the books in this series are available at Red Rose Publishing, http://www.redrosepublishing.com/
