She wonderfully allowed an interview:

? When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? I first realized when I was a little kid. (Smile) I began writing stories as soon as I could hold a crayon.
 
? How long does it take you to write a book? Depending on the length of the book it could be anywhere from 2 weeks to 10 years!
? What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?  Hmm. I don’t think I have an interesting writing quirk.
? Do you have a routine that you use to get into the right frame of mind to write? Not really. I usually write when I’m inspired—which, thankfully, happens to be a lot. Life inspires me. Having said that, I write much better when it’s totally quiet in the house like very early in the morning.
? Where do you get your ideas or inspiration for your characters? I get my ideas and inspiration for my characters from my imagination and everyday life. I’m always asking myself the “what-if” questions.
? How do you decide what you want to write about? Ideas usually just come to me.  I’m often with a pen and paper and try to write them down as fast as they come.
? What books have most influenced your life? The Holy Bible.
? What is the first book you remember reading by yourself? It was that long ago…I really don’t remember. I’ve been reading since early childhood.
? What are you reading right now? I’m reading a few contemporary romances on my Kindle right now.
? What do you like to do when you are not writing? In addition to spending quality time with my family and socializing, I’d have to say reading. I love books.
? What is your favorite comfort food? Anything with chocolate.
? What do you think makes a good story? Great characters, a solid plot and a little suspense. I love trying to figure out what’s going to happen next.  
? Who would you consider your favorite author and why? Too many to name. I have a lot of favorite authors that inspire me.
? What book, if any, do you read over and over again? The Bible—in passages.

Fun random questions: 
·        dogs or cats? Both.
·        Coffee or tea? A hot, delicious mug of steaming tea, anytime.
·        Dark or milk chocolate? Milk chocolate.
·        Rocks or flowers? Both, it depends on the occasion.
·        Night or day? Day.
·        Favorite color? Pink.
·        Crayons or markers? Markers.
·        Pens or pencils? Pens.
