What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Staying Broken (Single Dads Club)?

All of my books come from me so the stories ALWAYS have bits of actual events that I have been a part of sprinkled throughout. I have a lot of friends and many of them happen to be single parents or have been single parents for a time. I thought it would be fun to write a series about a Single Dads Group who kind of help each other navigate that world.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I LOVE reading Contemporary Romance of all kinds. My love for reading it inspired me to write it. As I read books in this genre, I found myself dreaming up ideas for books of my own. I’ve been writing for most of my life and romance just seems to flow naturally from me.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Currently, I’m reading All Your Perfects. I just finished up It Starts with Us, The Golden Couple, and What Happened to the Bennetts.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I am a Contemporary Romance junkie so for me it was the fire between Avery and Kendra when they first met. I think many of us have experienced that feeling and it’s fun to put it on paper.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Two things I absolutely love are dogs and coffee. I have a lot of coffee mugs with different sayings that usually reflect my mood that day so choosing my mug before I start writing is a bit of a quirky habit lol. My dogs need to be around me. They bring me comfort, so it feels good to write with them near me.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

Sure, I have a couple. Once I figured out that the only thing we can really control is ourselves and our own actions; life got much easier for me. Secondly, don’t let anybody steal your joy. Life is too short to let others bring us down. Make it a point to control your own joy and do the the things you love.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

If they loved it, they should read the next one. All of my books are stand alone but written as part of a series, so side characters that you liked in one book may just make an appearance as a main character somewhere in the series.
