Why did you write this book?
I moved to a fifty-five and older community and was amazed at how seniors are just as bad as teens. When I heard people talking about cheating on their spouses and the crazy antics they do, I knew I had found plenty of information on writing a new series.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy reading women’s fiction with romantic elements, contemporary romances and cozy mysteries.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Stephanie Plum from the Janet Evanovich series.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on women’s fiction contemporary romance that takes place during the summer at the Jersey Shore.
And I’m also working on Book three in my Camp Mirage cozy mystery series where there is a parallel story line between solving the mystery and the main character’s romance with one of the male residents.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
At the end of November, early December, book two in my Seaside Boulevard Series – A Different Kind of Perfect will be published.
