Q: Please tell us about yourself.
I am a guy who has always loved writing and reading. I love writing slightly more though. I'm also a huge sports fan and proud native New Yorker. I've been writing since I was eight years old and always wanted to be an author.
Q: Tell us about your book.
Cross Roads is about 16 year old Shawna who has raised herself on the streets of New York. She draws the attention of a sinister group of beings that are intent on killing her. Only one group can save her and they're known as the Acolytes. Forced to relocate, she undergoes rigorous training in order to join this covert group. Along the way she makes new friends, gets into teenage high jinx and finds love. Her new life seems to be going great until she is discovered and forced to put her training to the test.
Q: What inspired you to write Cross Roads?
Many of the strong women in my life inspired me to write this particular story. They have been so positive and have overcome so much adversity that I wanted/needed to write a story with a strong female lead.
Q: How much time per week do you spend writing/editing your work?
I don't have set hours for writing. I have to be inspired to write so some days I may write for a couple of hours and others I may have a marathon day of writing. Some days are so busy that I can't get a single word on page. Those are my least favorite times.
Q: If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?
That's a tough question. I would want to meet John Green. I think he'd be cool to hangout with. I'd also like to meet many of the authors I've met online like Mark Shaw who created the amazing #IndieBooksBeSeen movement that I'm an avid supporter of. George RR Martin would be my final choice (I guess – LOL!). His works are amazing.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
I'm currently working on the Cross Roads sequel that will be out in 2015. This one will have more action than the previous book.
