What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Red (Modern Day Fairy-Tale Series Book 2)?

This is the second installment to the Modern-Day Fairy Tale Series. I wanted to continue the story and explore a character who was too trusting.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Red (Modern Day Fairy-Tale Series Book 2), what would they be?

Here’s my playlist: “Red” by Taylor Swift, “Little Red Riding Hood” by The Royal Guardsman, “Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl” by Olivia Rodrigo, “Hungry like the Wolf” by Duran Duran, “The Heart Wants What It Wants” by Selena Gomez, and “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” by Set It Off.

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

I like to read any type of romance and lately I’ve been interested in thrillers and suspense.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Swan Song by Elin Hilderbrand.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I always love the ending scene.

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

A dog, who thinks he’s a cat, who likes to drape across my lap.

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

Comparison is the thief of joy.

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

To buy my next book 😉 JK – The world is good, and love is stronger than hate.
