Ask the Author Day!!!!

Q: Donna tells her date that she became a cop "becasue her friends needed one" but while at dinner at John & Beth's it's mentioned that she comes from a police family and followed in her father's footsteps. This made me wonder if Donna had been reluctant at first to become a cop.

A: Donna always wanted to be a cop, but it also gave her a place/role within the group so to speak. There were was never any reluctancy on her part to be a cop - it was she always wanted to do with her life.

Q: Where do you get the inspirations for your romances/relationships?

A: Some of it is by watching my friends, some of it is from my past relationships, some of it is from me being a hopeless romantic and some of it is from my great relationship ;)

Q: Have you written or are you writing any fiction that does not pertain to the GLBT community?

A: Yes, in fact the suspense novel that I'm close to finishing does not pertain to the gay community in the least.

Q: How do you want to be remembered as a writer?

A: Just as someone who told interesting, intriguing stories, and stories that are extremely reflective of our society right now.

Q: How did you come up with the idea to tell the stories of the different couples perspectives all throughout the same time period of time?

I think that was a very unique way to tell the story and was just wondering how you decided on it.

A: Thanks!! Great Question!! :) We've all seen movies or TV shows where they show various perespectives on the same event (s). I have never read a book like that, and the inspiration just kind of fell into place within my mind, so I thought it would be a new, unique form of writing :)

Q: What should readers expect from your books?

A: A wide variety of stories, a wide variety of characters; characters with depth; stories that will surprise you with twists, turns and unexpected events. Just be open minded and let yourself be swept away by the books ;)

Thanks so much for participating and reading!!! :)

See you all on the first for the next installment of our on-line book club!! :)

Happy Reading!!
