8. In your erotic rock and roll romance, LICK AND A PROMISE~Diary of a Rock Star Groupie, you dedicate the book to someone named Peggy. Who is she? Is she a real person?
I met Peggy when I was in 7th grade and she was in 8th. She lived across the street from me and every way that I described her in the book is true. She got me out of my dorky shell and gave me confidence and helped me so much.
After high school, our lives went into totally different directions and we lost touch after being friends for so many years.
About two years ago, I found her again on FaceBook and we reconnected. We had plans to get together that summer when her sister emailed me that she had died from an accidental lethal combination of prescription and over the counter cold medication that wreaked havoc on her already weakened heart, from a hole in the heart to many years of drug abuse and finally sobriety. It broke my heart and I felt compelled to dedicate the book to her. She changed my life and I was happy to have had the chance to tell her that before she passed away.
9. There is a rumor going around that the book is also based on an actual experience that happened to you, is this true?
Actually, yes…the book started out of a desire to write about an experience I had with a famous rock star when I was 17 years old. The book is part fiction, part non-fiction and some fantasy. I leave it up to the readers to figure out what’s what!
10. Besides writing, what are your hobbies?
I have a passion for animals and have raised Rottweilers for over 15 years!
I love to bake, cook, garden, work around the house, collect antiques and I love belly dancing!
11. Belly Dancing? Tell us about that!
Well, when I was a child and I saw I Dream of Jeannie for the first time, I was hooked. I wanted to be a harem girl, walk around in a pink costume, dance around in a pink puff of smoke and live in a cool, magical bottle. Although that didn’t happen, I was able to become a belly dancer several years ago.
After a major injury (I fell down the steps and broke some ribs and damaged my right kidney) I took some time off to heal. During that time, I got more involved with my writing and my books and they started to take off.
12. Any other passions?
Yes, I have a calling to be an inspirational speaker! I studied Public Speaking in college and have wanted to do it since then. I want to release my inspirational book, “The Rainbow Won’t Wait” out in paperback and take it on the road, so to speak. I have a story to tell and one that I feel will inspire others.
I want to inspire positive change in a negative world.
I am also a member of Toastmasters.
13. Do you collect anything?
When I was a little girl my parents bought me a Bonnie and Clyde WANTED poster and I loved it so much that I put it in a frame and I still have it! I have been collecting WANTED posters ever since! I esp love the Old West!
I love anything to do with Witches and the Salem Witch Trials.
I also collect antiques and old stuff, coats, purses and hair products!
14. What makes you happy?
Cupcakes! 🙂 My family, my animals, my writing and my speaking!
15. Finish this sentence…”Home is…”
where your dog is.
16. Tell us about Kurgan…
Back in 1998, after having emergency female surgery, I was told I could never have children then a month later I got pregnant with twin boys! I was over the moon. Sadly after about four months, I miscarried both. Their names were Thor and Conan.
The man I had been with for many years realized that he could not heal my broken heart by bringing back my boys so he got me a puppy to soothe my pain!
Kurgan was a 10 week old pure bred Rottweiler that became the love of my life. He was there for me during a very difficult time and he gave me the will to live. I am alive now because of him.
Back in 2010, he was diagnosed with cancer and given only 10 months to live but he held on for me and lived another three years.
Sadly, I lost him this year (2013) on March 12 after 15 years. The cancer had spread to his lungs and his esophagus has stopped working. He choked to death after I fed him and he died in my arms. He was cremated and returned to me on my birthday March 18.
His love and presence still guides me and I know that we will be together again one day. 🙂
