When and why did you begin writing?
I've been writing for as long as I can remember, but about ten years ago, I began to take it more seriously. As I grew more serious about writing, I began learning as much as I could about the craft.
What inspired you to write your first book?
My first book was written many, many years ago and to be honest, I don't remember the inspiration for it. My first published book was inspired by my wild imagination. I had a character in mind, then I thought about how she would react in various situations.
Do you have a specific writing style?
I'm a plotter. My books are all plotted out ahead of time. Often as I'm writing, the plot will morph and change, but I need the basic plot down before I begin.
Can you tell us about your book?
My most recent book, Blood & Lies, is the 3rd in the Desert Winds Series.
While JD Miller is chaperoning a group of teens on a mission trip to Kherson, Ukraine, one of the boys vanishes from the group without a trace.
Leandra Davis hasn't seen her father in over twenty years when he shows up and asks her to fly to Ukraine to join the search for a brother she's never met. Anger at her absentee father compels her to walk out and ignore his pleas, but anguish at the thought of her brother all alone in a foreign country, at the mercy of kidnappers, convinces her to abandon her life in Odessa, Texas and join the search.
When she and her best friend fly to Ukraine to search for the kidnapped teen, she meets the passionate paramedic, JD Miller. Together, they search for the missing young man and begin to uncover deadly secrets Leandra's father wants to keep hidden.
How did you come up with the title?
