What kind of books do you write?
My books combine paranormal romance, suspense, and mystery, balancing authentic love stories with original fantasy elements and a quirky sense of humor. Readers have described my work as “romance for smarties,” and compared my writing style to that of Kelley Armstrong (who is one of my favorite writers, so I pretty much faint every time I hear that one). 😀 I love delving into the rich intersections of faith and reason, Western and alternative medicine, and idealism and pragmatism, capturing those pivotal moments in life when we have to choose whether to take the risk of diving into the unknown, or remain safely on familiar ground.
Some descriptions of THE HEALING EDGE SERIES mention parapsychology. What is that?
While there are many different definitions out there, I’d say that put simply, parapsychology is the study of paranormal phenomena, including psychic activity, telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis, among others.
Do you write about psychic abilities because of personal experiences, or is it just an area of interest for you?
I answered this very question in an interview with the wonderfully insightful Deborah Kehoe, The Reading Chick! 🙂 You can check it out here.
How would you describe the “heat level” in your books?
I’d describe my books as “sweet” in romance genre-talk — or more specifically, “clean-with-steam” (heavy on the steam!).
Do the books in THE HEALING EDGE SERIES have to be read in order?
Ideally, the books should be read in order, as they follow a core group of characters over three consecutive weeks. However, each book was also written so that it could be read and appreciated as a stand-alone novel without the reader feeling lost.
Will there be more books in THE HEALING EDGE SERIES?
No more books are planned for now, but I am considering writing a wedding novella (I won’t say whose wedding! 😉 ) Having said that, the series ended by opening a whole new world of possibilities, so there may well be more stories to tell. I’ll just have to see where the muse takes me.
What are you working on now?
I’m getting a huge kick out of writing my current work-in-progress, a paranormal suspense series-starter set in a hospital in Washington, D.C. The characters are so rich, unique, and bursting with life, they are practically writing the book for me! Stay tuned…!
