Tell us about your family. I have four sisters, my two brothers died at a young age, a beautiful daughter in college, my husband, my dad, and lots of extended family. My mother passed away from cancer over twenty years ago. My family is very supportive and are spread throughout the US.
If you could do any job in the world, what would you do? Write or travel or be a fulltime student.
What is your favorite color? Sky blue.
What is your favorite food? Southern cooked green beans.
What genre are you most comfortable writing in? Young adult and thrillers.
Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)? I took my daughter to Plymouth, MA to research DATE WITH THE DEAD.
Have you started another book? I usually have 2-3 going at the same time.
How much of the book is realistic? Most of it’s made up, but there’s always a bit of truth and satire in probably everything I write. For example, Drew’s suicide is based on an actual happening.
How do you feel about self-publishing? I love the control being the freak that I am. Marketing is not the fun part though.
Last book I purchased? I can’t tell you because I wish I could return it. I get most of my books from the library unless they’re self-published. To me, those are usually reasonably priced.
When and why did you being writing? My Catholic school published my first play in second grade. I wrote songs and short stories in high school.
 Have you started another book yet? Yes. I’m writing Lennon’s Hope, the third book in the Lennon’s Girls Trilogy.
What do you do to unwind and relax? Run, watch a movie, a long hike in the mountains.

Date with the Dead

Sixteen-year-old Jolie Livingston’s closest and only friend Drew is this really hot dead guy, and it bites that the self-absorbed princesses at school cannot even see him. That’s right she can communicate with the dead. It’s the living she has trouble with. She and her mom inherited this awesome crib in Plymouth, MA. It’s quite a step-up from the homeless shelter in New Orleans, but there’s a catch. They can’t afford the past due mortgage, so Jolie’s working on that.

She starts a ghost hunting business called Ripsters. Somehow she’s managed to recruit Brittany, a glamour SAP smothered in pink, and a techie allergic to ghosts. Brit actually thinks he resembles the R&B singer Chris Brown. All that pink has clouded her vision. They both have special talents Jolie’s hoping will be useful to their venture. Right now, they’re working for a family in need of major therapy due to a dead guy with a hole in his head.
