Coffee or Tea?
Depends on what I am doing. At home, I prefer a cup of green tea, but if I’m at Starbucks, it’s always a Caramel Macchiato with soy milk and no whipped cream.
What inspired you to write Portal?
The story was inspired by a variety of sources, but what actually motivated me to write it down was my younger daughter asking me to do so. I (as all moms do) used to make up all kinds of stories for her when she was younger to keep her entertained. She wanted to know what happened next and asked me to write this one down for her.
Are any of the characters based on real people?
Portal, more than any of my other stories, is very inspired by my own personality and by people I know or have known in the past. But if you are thinking of suing me… no, not by YOU. :D
Did you write the story in order? Or did you jump around a lot?
I did. I do not outline my stories. I sit down and write whatever comes to mind as I tap away on my keyboard.
Describe your book to use in less than twenty words!
Portal is a “what if” story. What if you could go back in time and change that decision that determined the course of your life?
Are you already writing your next book? Can you give us a hint on the story?
The Portal Chronicles have already been completed, with five books in the series. I am currently writing the fourth book in my new series, the Bonfire Chronicles. I will be going back in time with the Portal Chronicles and releasing a prequel (Nucleus) next year that will tell the story of Rupert and Olivia.
