Could you tell us a little bit about your novel? A Discovery of Vampires is a trilogy that tells the story about two girls who struggle with their transformation as vampires.
Why do you think vampires are so alluring as characters?
I honestly think that since the release of Twilight vampires have become a part of pop culture. They really are fascinating beings and there is an ongoing mystery that surrounds them.
How do you balance romance and horror in your novel?
I try to make the characters as believable as possible in the sense that readers can relate to them as they would to a human character. I try and bring a bit of a human element into the process by balancing their immortal traits with human traits.
What led you to write Afterlife?
I read a book by Todd Burpo called Heaven is for real and it led me to ask a lot of questions about the afterlife. My research led me to write a book that not only explores life after death but also a book that explores the topic of immortality.
What is the best advice you can give about writing?
Read A LOT! Read more than you write! There are thousands of books out that there that can help you in the writing process. One of the best books on the market today is A newbie's guide to publishing by J. Koranthand, best of all it’s free on his website!
