Can you introduce yourself to my readers a little?
I’m the bestselling author of the Summer Chronicles (Phantom Universe) and Timeless (Shadow of the Sun) Series. I have a new contemporary series coming out on May 5, 2014, and have others in the works. I’m represented by Pam van Hylckama Vlieg, co-founder of Foreword Literary.
Can you introduce us to the world(s) that you have created?
I like to stick my toes in many genres, though all of them are rich with romance. I have an adult fantasy series (Timeless Series) about angels, but not your typical type. Hot men, kick-ass women, and plenty of action. Then there’s my YA scifi series (Summer Chronicles) about a mute girl who’s a modern-day slave with special time-traveling abilities she discovers while running from her captors. And for lovers of New Adult, my newest release, Love’s Paradox, is a contemporary romance about a young girl who fights back against her stalker ex while juggling a new man who’s dealing with his own emotional baggage pertaining to his sister’s death.
Will this be your first RT or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
This will be my third year attending RT. I have a few words of wisdom:
- Drink lots of water & make sure to eat regularly–RT isn’t known for feeding its attendees.
- This is an amazing opportunity to network and make friends. Don’t be afraid to make friends everywhere you go.
- Have fun! RT has a very laid-back atmosphere about it. Don’t be uptight, and you’ll fit in perfectly.
Are you speaking on any panels during RT? Are there any you are looking forward to or are planning on attending?
Nope. I’m mostly looking forward to seeing old friends and networking. The main reason I come to RT is to meet people who are like me. I’d like to say there’s a panel I’m looking forward to, but I usually decide at the last second.
Is there anything in particular you’re looking forward to or experiencing while in New Orleans?
Just the Nola atmosphere. Never been there before, so I’m looking forward to spending time in a lovely city full of my kind of people.
If someone were wanting to meet up with you at RT, who should they look for?
Blonde. Total hottie. ;-) Will probably have purple in my hair. Look for the gal with the entourage. Just kidding. Maybe.
