Business before Pleasure:
What inspired you to write your first book? One thing that has inspired me is my past love for Greek Mythology. I wanted to write my own version of what the gods, the nymphs and shifters would be like in an alternative universe with a twist. Another thing that has inspired me is my love for erotic menages, there is just something about them that I have always loved and adored. So, I mixed both of them together and that’s how I wrote my first book, The Nymph’s Oath Book One.
How much real life do you put into or influences your books? I would say that a part of me in real life is in every book that I write. You’ll see a little bit of me in each heroine and how I really am in reality. I also am influenced by my husband in real life and he is also seen in at least one of the heroes in each of my book. Whether it’s his temper, his protectiveness, his strength, or his comical side.
What is the hardest part of writing for you? I think one of the hardest parts for me at this moment is writing the last book of a series. It’s kind of like saying goodbye in a way, my current WIP is actually The Nymph’s Oath Book Four and it has not been easy to write.
What are your current projects? As mentioned earlier, I am working on The Nymph’s Oath Book Four. After I am finished writing it, I plan on also writing a shifter series that takes place here in home state, Arkansas. It will not be a menage, so I’m interested to see where this road will take me.
How do you go about choosing the title for your book(s)? It’s all about the huge story I guess, and picking a title for a book isn’t easy.
What is your favorite genre to write? I really loved writing The Nymph’s Oath Book Three, this was my first mild BDSM erotic book. I am sure that I will be engaging in more BDSM genre books in my future.
Generally, how long does it take you to complete a book from idea to handing it over to your publisher? Usually it can take a few months, depending on how busy I am. I have four kids, and sometimes I don’t get to sit down and write.
Do you ever use someone in your life as a sounding board for ideas or do you prefer to work alone? I usually work alone but sometimes I do ask for some ideas with my Street Team, Laurell’s Naughty Nymph’s and Shifters. I like to engage them so that they can feel that they helped play a part in my books. Last one that I had asked for in ideas was what to name one of my heroes in The Nymph’s Oath Book Four, it was really fun.
Do your travel to research for your book(s)? No but I wish I could!! How fun would that be? But no, I don’t travel. It’s hard to go anywhere with four kids but I’m not ruling it out. I will probably be able to travel in the future I am sure.
Did you learn anything while writing your book(s)? I learn new things everyday as an author and I am still learning. One thing that I have learned while writing my books is that this whole experience from the first draft to the final product is truly a journey. A huge journey that helps you grow and become even better the more you write.
Have you ever had an idea for a book but never written it and what is it? Well the idea about the Arkansas Shifters is a current idea that I have not written just yet. But, I would also like to write more BDSM books as well. I have other ideas as well, so we’ll see what happens next!
When writing, do you have a process? Well usually I’ll brainstorm in my head a general idea. Then, I usually make an outline which is subject to change at any time. Then, I start writing and the magic really begins to happen from there.
Do you have any advice for new authors looking to make their own literary statement? Always be willing to help and support other authors. We are not to compete against one another. We all have our own unique stories and each one is important in it’s own way. Also, never give up.
How many books have you written? Do you have a particular favorite? Three so far, I have another short story that will be released in my first Anthology called Night of the Demon Volume Two. And so far my favorite is The Nymph’s Oath Book Three because of Hades. I just loved writing about him so much, such a fun book.
Why did you choose to use a publisher instead of self-publishing? Well at this moment, finances are hard. So I can’t really afford to pay out of pocket and my publisher covers a lot of things like book cover and editor that otherwise I would of had to do alone.
Where do your ideas come from? A lot of it is fantasies that I have just always wanted to do. Some things obviously would never be possible like a menage relationship so that’s one for an example. I get other ideas from just random thoughts of “what ifs” in my head.
How many books do you currently have published? I have three, The Nymph’s Oath Book One, Two and Three.
Are you working on anything right now? Yes, The Nymph’s Oath Book Four.
Do you have a favorite Hero or Heroine from any of your books and why? Hades from The Nymph’s Oath Book Three. He is the dominant, the anti-hero and bad boy. And he’s hot as hell.
Do you have anything you would like to say to your current readers or to those that haven’t yet read your work(s)? To my current readers, I love you all!! I’m just getting started and I have so much more to show you. To those that haven’t read my work yet, get ready for a hot ride!! And make sure you bring extra batteries for your “toys.”

About Your Latest Release
Introduce us to the main characters: Helena our heroine is our fire nymph who is set on a mission from Zeus to help find and destroy a prison escapee Cerberus, the three headed hound of hell. She is to partner up with the famous wrestling tag team champions, Nicholas and James. The two men are Sabertooth Tiger shifters and they are destined to be with her. While on their journey to the Underworld, Hades is already waiting for them. Hades is a Dom, and once all our characters come together, their world changes as the four of them let the real dark sides of themselves come out.
How do these two meet? Well Helena at first meets Nicholas and James at their last wrestling match. She then meets Hades in the Underworld.
How would you characterize their relationship in one word answers, start, middle and end? Destiny.
What three words would you use to describe this story? Hot, Juicy, Sinful.
Blurb: It’s a good thing that Helena is wearing her fireproof boots because The Nymph’s Oath is back and things are about to heat up quickly. Zeus of course, has put the special fire nymph on an important assignment. And when she meets her partners, she swears her body feels like it’s engulfed in flames. James and Nicholas, the Sabertooth tiger shifters, or as most people know them as the famous tag team wrestling champions, prepare for their last fight in the ring. What little they do know is that not only will they finally meet their mate. The men will soon find themselves fighting in their biggest battle with the life of their mate as well as their own at stake. And then there is Hades. The magnificent God of the Underworld, Lord of the dead, and ruler of all that evil. The God not only stands up to the plate and fights, but he too will find himself right in the middle of The Nymph’s Oath. And there is nothing he can do about it. Hera is up to her tricks all over again, but who will she have in mind to free from The Prison of the Damned this time? This Novella is Book Three from The Nymph’s Oath series. Warning: It contains adult content, hot sex and mild BDSM themes so only check it out if you are ready to get very, very hot.
“Isn’t our new Queen sexy as fuck?” Hades arches his brow with an evil grin.
“Yes, she is sir,” Nicholas’ answers as he sends her a wicked little smile and a sexy wink, making her blood sizzle through her veins.
“Yes. Sir.” James purrs, tilting his head in acknowledgment with a huge grin on his face. “Don’t cum until I tell you to do so. If you’re a good girl, the three of us will fuck you.” Hades casually instructs.
She looks down below to them and moans in pleasure as Hades uses his powers to make her sex feel like his tongue is fucking her. Licking her. The thrill shoots through her body, her arousal rolls off of her in waves. She tilts her head back, giving in with a shudder. The licks continue, leaving a trail of fire in their path. His licks were relentless. She bites down on her lip to fight from coming apart.
The men circle around her, sexual passion fills their eyes, as she begins to form tears. She wants to flail her arms in frustration but she can’t. His power in restraining her is too strong. She groans in frustration, “Please.”
Hades laughs, and licks her harder. He makes her insane with each stroke. Her toes curl. Her breath almost stops. Another tear falls and she clutches her fist.
“You were made for devils like us. Let’s see what you look like when all three of us get after you.”
