The Next Big Thing


I was invited by Victoria Thurman, the fantastic author of The Dating Dilemmas of Delilah Dunnfield, to participate in a question and answer blog interview about my newest book.  I was thrilled to participate. I have added her link to the bottom of my page. Please take a look at her interview and read about her book.


What is your working title of your book?

The working title of my book is Amber and Blue II-Victory.  This is the much anticipated sequel to Amber and Blue.  I am very excited about getting this one out to my Amber and Blue fans.  Most of the feedback from the readers of my first book has been to ask that I hurry and finish its sequel.  Their wish has been my number one priority!  🙂



Where did the idea come from for the book?

The idea of Amber and Blue II-Victory came while I was nearing the end of Amber and Blue.  I had nine single spaced pages of ideas before the first book was copy edited.  The three main characters were not quite finished with their story.


What genre does your book fall under?

Romance /Suspense/Action


Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

I would like to see a slightly shorter version of the T-Mobile girl for Grace.  I do not have anyone in particular for Alex or Lucien, but my search is thorough and diligent.


What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

This consuming romance pulls you from the banks of the Tennessee River, and drops your heart and emotions into the war torn streets of Old Montréal.


Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Amber and Blue II-Victory will be self-published through Amazon and Smashwords.  Smashwords will then distribute to Itunes, Barnes & Noble,  Kobo, and many other vendors.


How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

The first draft took about two and a half months.  The story is complete but I wrote it as fast as it came out of my head.  Now, I am in the much longer editing process.


What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I am unable to honestly compare it to other romance novels.  It’s really not just romance.  This book has quite a bit of action and suspense.  I will have to let the readers decide.


Who or what inspired you to write this book?

This book was 100% inspired by the first book Amber and Blue.


What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

With the hopes that the reader has finished Amber and Blue, and is dying for its sequel, Amber and Blue II-Victory will show the reader just how far human selfish desire can push one of the characters.  Lucien finds that his gnawing obsession is uncontrollable and he will do anything to get what he wants.  Will the amber eyed Lucien kill Alex to get him out of Grace’s life?  Or will the precious blue eyed Alex lose control and kill Lucien while protecting the girl that he knows belongs to him?  Check out Amber and Blue, and then Amber and Blue II-Victory to find out.
