1. What is your favorite book and why?
My favorite book? Hmm, thats a really hard question! One of my favorite books of all time is      Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. It's what got me hooked on romance ;)
2. How were you feeling emotionally while writing Ruin?
Unstable. Haha, no seriously. My uncle was declining at a rapid rate and I had this desperation to finish the book while he was still living. Thankfully, God was gracious, and my uncle was able to read the book before his passing. I wanted so badly to be able to put the emotions my family (and myself) were going through during that time, and I hope I succeeded.

 3. If you have 3 wishes what would they be?

Three wishes. Hmm since this could get really heavy really fast, lets do three silly wishes. I wish the world was a full time musical, I wish Starbucks was ALWAYS free, and I wish that there was more time in the day to write.
4. Out of all your books, which one is your favorite story?
It's a tie between the Ruin series and the Eagle Elite series. I JUST LOVE writing mafia books.

5. Who inspires you the most?
My husband. :)
6. How does it feel being on the New York best sellers list??J
It feels pretty amazing. I wake up every day with a smile on my face when I think about it.

7. What is your favorite quote and why?

Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future (even wrote about it in Elect)
8. What book are you currently reading?

Right now I'm reading the "A Shade of Vampire" series ;) it's really good!

9. What are you currently working on or what is your next project?
I'm working on the sequel to Ruin, Toxic. I have a few more chapters left and its finished!
10. Out of all your characters you have written, who do you relate to the most? (my best friend Christine Schaefer's question she loves your books too)
Who do I relate to the most? Hmm, thats a tough question! I think I probably relate to Nat the most from the Seaside series, I don't even know why other than I really like her personality and her ability to tame Alec ;)
