Who do you consider the most swoon-worthy man/woman in the literary world? How about on tv/in the movies?
James Fraser from the Outlander series is my favorite swoon-worthy hero in books. He is the perfect combination of flawed, gritty, and chivalrous. Young Brad Pitt is my ideal of a swoon-worthy actor. I especially loved him in A River Runs through It. Grrrrrrr….Top 5

What are your thoughts on book covers- in your opinion do they make or break a book?
I wouldn’t say they make or break a book, but they definitely catch the eye.

Want to Want Me by Jason Derulo
How do you come up with character names? How do you come up with novel titles?
I just go with what feels right for the personality of a character or the scope of a project.
Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?
The biggest is to be realistic about what you want to achieve from writing.
