normally eat (mostly) healthy food, but as a deadline approaches, move over
apples. Coffee, ice cream, and peanut butter cups get me through those long
do you find sexy in a leading man?
man with a great sense of humor will get my attention every time. I’m
also a sucker for a guy who’s great with kids and animals.
teach women's self-defense, what's the best defensive move one of your
characters has ever made?
Sacrifice, Mandy is the best marksman in town. Jayne from Midnight
Exposure isn’t into guns. She uses a leg sweep to bring her captor down
onto the ground with her. Then she drops a heel into his groin.

have no idea. Other than writing, I love martial arts and animals. I would NOT
go back into banking. <shudder>.
Sacrifice is the second in your Midnight series. How do you choose
which characters you will revisit in subsequent titles? Do you know yet
who you plan to focus on in your next book in the series?
write a book, I keep possible stories for secondary characters in mind. The
next book in the Midnight series will be about Conor Sullivan and the museum
curator he meets in Midnight Sacrifice. Their conflict is already

that cat hair on your coat?
probably dog hair, cat hair, and as I visited a ranch for rescue horses last

to make a small animal. Add a spaniel and two cats to the mix and there isn’t a
fur free article of clothing in our house.
Joe Hill and Stephen King have all found frightening inspiration in
Maine. What is it about that place?
desolate, wild, and scary, the perfect background for suspense.
