What part of the writing process do you dread?
Going back in after an awesome editor has done her work. I know the end result will be a much better book, but it’s tough to buckle down and start rewriting from start to finish.
If we were to come to your house for a meal, what would you give us to eat?
I would start with my favorite hors d’oeuvres – a nice olive tapenade, a homemade mushroom spread and some fresh bread or toast. For the meal we’d have a caprese salad, tomato slices and mozzarella, a big green salad, potatoes and fennel with rosemary and grilled chicken. For dessert, a nice chocolate cake!
Are you a romantic?
Do you listen to music when you're writing?
No. There’s always a lot going on in my mind. I don’t have room to listen to anything else when I want to write.
If you were a shifter, what animal would you like to be?
If I were a shifter, I’d like to be an eagle or an osprey or a pelican. A big-bodied bird who lives near the water and can fly. Either that or I’d like to be a wild cat.
The contents of that flask could change the fate of the world. When a ruthless enemy kidnaps her family Hana has to find the flask to rescue them. On her quest she meets a mysterious man with a penchant for poetry, a Gypsy girl with a haunting past, and Alex, an all-American boy who’s trying to save his sister from a crippling disease. It’s hard to trust anyone when the stakes are this high — especially when surrounded by experts in deception.
There’s only one flask, and Hana desperately needs to find it.
