Hello Shelly and welcome to The Writers Voice!
What would you like for readers to take away from your novel/novels?
That life is hard, and not fair, but we should try to be the best people we can and when you love, love with all you've got.
What part of your first novel did you find hardest to write?
Whew! Um, well Collide was my first book, so probably the scene after they get married ;)
Was there ever a moment when you wouldn’t trade what you do as an author for the world? What was that moment for you?
Of course! I feel like that daily. I'm am so blessed and have really have a fantastic time since I started all this. I think the moment when I knew there was no going back for me, was the very first email I got from a fan that said how much they enjoyed Significance and for me to please hurry with the next book because they were so eager to find out what happened. That was pretty awesome.
What makes you feel like you’re reading or have read a truly amazing book?
When I love the characters, love the way they react with each other, and I know that without a shadow of a doubt that the story will end with a happy ending. It may not have been the ending I was thinking, but happy nonetheless.
Is there one book that has had an impact on not only your writing, but on you personally?
Well, I can't really think of one book that has affected me as a writer. There was one book I read recently that I literally just can't stop thinking about. Callum & Harper by Fisher Amelie. It's not even a paranormal book, which is mostly what I read, so it's very strange that this story struck me as much as it has. This book makes me want to write something that impacts me and other people this way.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you!
That I love to watch old musicals. My grandmother was a librarian and we used to watch these at her house in the summer. Carousel, Brigadoon, Oklahoma, Singing in the Rain, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, Music Man. LOVE them!
