IndieView with Brady Koch, author of Guns, Gods & Robots


I like my stories to go unexpected places and I need readers to be willing to go with me. I promise that any left turn will not be simply for the sake of a shock or surprise, but will wholly serve the story and perhaps give the reader a reason to re-read from a wholly different context.

I Should Be Different

I’ll be in bed like “all those things I did are actually garbage, and they’ll multiply in my sleep if I don’t get up and correct them now.”

IndieView with J.Q. Anderson, author of Intercepted

Intercepted Amazon

You can’t write or create for other people because then their approval becomes everything and that is exhausting. I would love to know that my stories made others laugh or cry and that they’ve enjoyed them, but I write what is inside of me.

BookView with Rusty Blackwood, author of Willow’s Walk


When all is said and done, I look at this novel and smile, for I truly am proud of what it has become, and the riveting story it tells.

IndieView with Sarah Anne Shockley, author of The Pain Companion


I write from a very genuine place, and my writing is about things that I have experienced on a deep level for myself. I am less interested in whatever the next hot topic is, and more interested in what is showing up in my life right now, and how it might be useful to others.

Empire's Daughter cover 380 px wide

I spent about nine months re-submitting to agents and other presses, but after several versions of the same rejection letter – basically they all said “Beautifully written, not commercial enough”, I chose to self-publish.

IndieView with LC Coyle, author of The Drakon


I remember reading so many YA novels and thinking, “What a goody-two-shoes! No way that would happen!” … This book is for all the girls who are tired of thinking there’s something ‘wrong’ with them because they don’t have the pure-as-driven-snow outlook that female YA heroines today so often seem to share.

The Sun That Shines & The Storm That Will Always Pass

I’ve been writing for a long time, and I don’t think I could ever write about completely fictitious characters …

BookView with Lauri Boris, author of A Sudden Gust of Gravity


I really enjoyed inviting him into this story and letting him tell his side of things, and he was one of the most forthcoming characters I’ve ever worked with. And adorable. If only he weren’t so fictional and I wasn’t old enough to be his…well, youthful aunt.

IndieView with Denise L. Jenne, author of Annalise’s Up and Down Day

Annalise front cover with 5-star sticker

They are absolutely real people — not even borrowed from real world people. My characters are my great niece and her parents — although, if you were to ask Annalise, she might disagree.
