Murderous thoughts. That is what I had once Isabella walked through the door and revealed to me who she was. I needed an escape. An escape from my thoughts, an escape from the hurt… an escape from… him.
I was a broken woman, but I was never going to break my resolve. I grew up being a fighter, because I had to. No man could ever bring me down… Not even Luca.
But, I had to admit, I never thought my heart would break as much as it did that day. Of course, I fled, but I was a fool to think he would ever let me go. He always told me I was his… no matter what the cost. He was determined to keep me, regardless of the lengths he had to go to reach his goal. He was like a moth to my flame, a tattoo carved into my heart. I could never escape his pull.
I may have evaded him, but I knew it was just a matter of time. However, once he did catch up with me nothing could have prepared us for what happened next.
GET TO KNOW YOU INTERVIEW
Tell us is there anything about you that
people don’t already know?
I love shoes. My
husband calls me a centipede.
Roughly 11 years ago
I met my sister for the very first time. The reunion was a rather emotional,
but fulfilling one.
Your books are so emotional. How long does
it take for you to be able to get the characters out of your mind and move on
to the next?
Sometimes it’s hard to get your head out of a book once it’s finished. Deviant
actually made me ill. My blood pressure went down so much that I almost fainted
at work once. Not nice. 😦 In the end I had to take a deep breath and move onto
the next project. I like to build scenes up in my head before I start writing
them down. It makes it easier to flow that way.
Are the names of the characters in your
Sometimes the hardest
part of writing a book is choosing the character’s names. I think they’re
important because a good, strong name can have an inpact on the way you feel
about the character. That’s what I feel, anyway.
What are the most important attributes to
remaining sane as a writer?
Coffee, sweets, and
wine. Did I mention wine?
What is the most demeaning thing said about
you as a writer?
I tend not
to dwell on the bad things that are said. Luckily, I haven’t had
anything too bad that it has stuck with me. I count myself extremely lucky
to have met some wonderful readers out there. I welcome reviews good and bad,
and also welcome any people who have reviewed my books negatively to contact
me. I seriously don’t bite… well, not that much. 😉
How do you react to a bad review of one of
constructive, I welcome them. I once had a reviewer rate a book of
mine 3 stars and emailed me to apologise. I had read the review and told
her there was nothing to apolgise for. The review was constructive and well
thought out. It’s these reviews that aid me in becoming a better writer.
It’s the “Bash the Author” reviews I get upset about. There’s just no
need for it.
What was the hardest part of writing your
Maintaining a flow.
Sometimes I will sit there and my mind goes completely blank. I hate it when
that happens. 😦 The other part is writing scenes and then looking back on them
thinking, are people going to get bored reading this?
Did you learn anything from writing your
book and what was it?
That I can write
emotionally difficult scenes. In Luca 2, something happens to Clara that hit a
nerve with me. I cried writing it, and then cried reading it over again. I
didn’t enjoy it, but if other people have the same emotions that I did
then at least I know I have done the best I could regarding that scene.
Is there a message in your novel that you
want readers to grasp?
I suppose only that in life you have to be grateful for the things that you
have. Sometimes bad things can happen, but when it does you have to think to
yourself that there are people in a much worse situation than me.
Have you ever read or seen yourself as a
character in a book or a movie?
Not really. I have
read and watched characters in a movie and thought, I wish I could be like
I love the covers. What made you choose
them? What gave you the idea?
I went hunting for a
hot Italian model. I found one and asked my designer if she could work her
magic. I explained that having the castle somewhere on the cover was important,
as it was important to my character.
Who designs your covers?
I don’t think I want to tell you because I want to keep her to myself! 😉 Only
joking… Well, maybe just a little bit.
Kellie Dennis from
Book Cover by Design. She’s awesome!
Describe in 5 words, your writing:
Drama, dark, angst, romantic and erotic.
When you were a child what did you want to
be when you grew up?
A managing director
of a crisp factory.
Only joking. Funnily
enough I wanted to be a writer. I used to write poetry when I was 17. I even
had a story of a young girl that moves from the country to London and works for
an older CEO. Romance blooms, of course. In the end I never started it.
What do you use to write your book?
A lot of imagination.
I think it’s imperative when starting a new project. I start the kettle for my
coffee or tea, fire up my laptop, and start tapping away.
Do you listen to music while you writing or
Once in a blue moon I may put some music on just to have some background noise.
Mostly, though I like peace and quiet whilst I’m writing.
Tell us your latest news?
I’m currently writing
another stalker book called Scars. I’m quite excited about this one.
What book are you reading now?
I read Grey recently, so now I’m on Fifty Shades Darker.
Do you have a
Not really. My
husband calls me James, which I find quite sweet. I just think of it as a
shortened version of Jaimie.
What are your pet peeves?
I can be a little OCD about certain things. Toilet paper being put on the
holder correctly, for one. 😉 The others are opened cupboard doors or
drawers. I hate that! I also can’t understand how many socks we go through as a
family. I seriously put on about ten pairs every time I do a wash, lol.
Considering I have to do a wash at least twice a week, that’s a lot
I’ll shut up now.
Do you ever write naked?
Lol, I think my hubby
would like me to, but no.
What is your favourite Starbuck’s/coffee
I don’t have a
Starbucks where I live. 😦 Normally I have my coffee black.
What’s your favourite fruit?
preferably dipped in melted chocolate. Hmm…
What’s your favourite tv show?
What’s your favourite genre?
One of your favourite quotes
The enemy of my enemy
is my friend
Do you enjoy giving interviews?
I’m enjoying this one, so yes. :

I’m a mother
I’m a sinner
I’m a saint

Actually, you can scrap bitch. I’m not really a bitch. My husband may disagree
with me at times on that, though. 😉
Thank you so much for taking part. We can’t
wait to read more work from you.
