Tell us a little bit about yourself, your hobbies and interests.

I'm a USA Today Bestselling author writing Cozy Mysteries and Romance from beautiful New Zealand.

When and why did you start writing books?

I've written forever but looked to publish in 2014 after years of attending conferences and finally finishing a book I thought might be good enough.

What made you decide to tackle writing as a career?

The thought of being my own boss and doing something I loved was too tempting to ignore.

Which one of your books or characters is your favourite?

The one I just finished is always my favourite. Lol.

Which one of your books was the hardest to write and stretched you the most as a writer?

Apple Pie and Arsenic was so hard. It was my first cozy mystery, and after writing solely romance, I wanted to hit all the right notes.

Who is your favourite author and book?

Agatha Christy is right up there with Murder on the Orient Express.

What book are you reading right now?

Witchnapped in Westerham by Dionne Lister.

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

People around me, snippets of conversation, life and the news.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

Baking and family times.

Do you have any new books in the works?

Yes! Gingerbread and Gunshots is out for Christmas 2022 and I have a new paranormal mystery series coming 2023.
