WP: What do you write?
D: I'm a sweet romance writer concentrating on the contemporary and historical genres. This next year will be the release of my first Young Adult paranormal.
WP: Why do you choose the genres you do?
D: I love history. The romance and adventure of the past is very real, and I hope to bring it to life as I create characters that I would like to meet. Writing contemporary romance is fun because there is more freedom to write from my own experience of places and situations.
WP: What made you first want to be a writer?
D: As soon as I could write sentences down and string ideas together I understood that I had an outlet that allowed me to escape and create. My second grade teacher made early predictions.
WP: What inspires you?
D: Traveling and experiencing new things really jumpstarts my creative juices. Also, watching classic movies and reading good books can inspire ideas.
WP: What kicks the brain into gear when you have writer’s block?
D: I have to walk away and let things stew for a while. However, the only real solution to writer's block is discipline, pure and simple.
WP: Who is your favorite character you have created?
D: My favorite character I've created is Captain Julius Bertrand from THE PRIVATEER. I suppose I'm drawn to mysterious personalities, so I enjoyed portraying a complex character that not everyone gets. On the other hand, I know now that I have more writing experience I was far too close to him, but that doesn't change the fact that I'll always be enamored of him.
WP: Is there any genre you want to try, but haven’t yet?
D: My first paranormal will be released in 2012. This is definitely new territory for me.
WP: What do you hope readers will take away from your stories?
D: My wish is that readers will fall for my characters and enjoy a little getaway and adventure. I also hope to provide them with clean fiction and sweet romances that they can share with their friends and family.
WP: What’s your latest news and do you have anything releasing soon?
D: This October I traveled to Kentucky for a four author book signing where I gave away copies of one of my ebooks and signed print copies of Whimsical Publications', JOSETTE, my first Regency Romance that has really made me proud.
WP: Where can we find you on the web?
