Lizzy has stopped by for an interview:

* When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

When I was about nine years old. I’ve always known I had a calling, and I figured it out at nine that it was to become a writer!

* What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?

I’m known for a couple!

First, I write super fast. When I’m not distracted by social media, I can write about two novels a month (up to 200k words.) When distracted my social media/life, I can write a novel in about three weeks!

Second, I also work on multiple projects at once. So if I have time to write 100k words, I’ll divide it among projects slated to be published and the projects I write just for fun (that’ll probably never see the light of day haha!)

* Where do you get your ideas or inspiration for your characters?

I don’t really know. It’s hard to explain. I once wrote a post about how my process is what I call intuitive writing, in that, I don’t dictate what I write, what direction the story goes in, the characters, etc. I simply write, and wherever the story goes, it goes. I do sometimes build characters around neat or intriguing traits (both physical and intellectual) I find in people around me. Otherwise, I just let the Muses do their work!

* What books have most influenced your life?

Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” taught me that flawed characters are better than non-flawed ones. It’s a seemingly simple lesson, but up until then, I had this weird fixation with creating the perfect character. After reading P&P I realized I didn’t have to have perfect characters, that what makes them relatable and strong are their faults.

* What do you like to do when you are not writing?

I don’t have a lot of down time. I travel with my husband whenever he goes to conferences, so that’s always really cool. I play with my animals, hang out with my sister and husband, watch cancelled TV series, go for walks.

* What is your favorite comfort food?

I have a weakness for bakery quality pastries, baked goods and chocolate. I love honey – alone, in tea, on anything! I also love crockpot cooked meat, roasted vegetables, anything my mom cooks … I’m a total foodie. I’m always up for trying new foods and local cuisine when I travel!

* What do you think makes a good story?

Relatable characters. Most of the times, it’s the characters people love, though sometimes, they fall in love with the worlds. I love reading epic fantasy, because I love disappearing into a new world and learning all about it and how it’s different.

* Who would you consider your favorite author and why?

Fun random questions:
• dogs or cats?


• Coffee or tea?

Coffee in the morning, tea the rest of the day!

• Dark or milk chocolate?

When watching my weight, dark. Otherwise, milk!

• Rocks or flowers?


• Night or day?


• Favorite color?


• Crayons or markers?


• Pens or pencils?

Reader beware … A woman suffering from heartbreak wishes her life would change and wakes up in BLACK MOON DRAW, an unfinished book written by her favorite author, where she must seek out the hero and help him on his mission if she is to return home.

Synopsis: A reader gets sucked into the book she’s reading and is trapped, unless she convinces the hero of the story to send her home. Just her luck - the book is unfinished, and its sexy hero is far more alpha male than she’s prepared to handle.

Naia must learn quickly how to navigate the dangerous, magical world of Black Moon Draw and find a way to complete her journey with the unlikely, uncooperative hero of the story, who holds the key to returning her home.
