Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I always loved reading and as a teenager began writing poems, song lyrics and short stories about the dark things from my nightmares and the devastating events of my actual life. Writing has always been an emotional outlet for me.
When and why did you begin writing?
I began writing after the birth of my son when I suffered postpartum depression. Writing became a way for me to express all the terrible things I was feeling and to work through them in a constructive way.
How long have you been writing?
I started writing poems, song lyrics and short stories as a young teen, but the first real writing project I began was in 2009. This is the year the first words to What Lies Inside were written.
When did you first know you could be a writer?
I never thought of myself as a writer, nor did I ever think I would become one. I’d always had a creative side and apart from poetry, song lyrics and short stories, I used to put my efforts into drawing and painting. Unfortunately the things I drew never resembled what I imagined in my mind, well except for the dark evil creatures I sketched sometimes. So when did I first know I could be a writer? I guess I always knew I could write, but until I’d finished the draft for What Lies Inside I guess I hadn’t accepted it.
What genre are you most comfortable writing?
I love writing paranormal and urban fantasy with compelling romance. These are also the genres I love to read. That said, I’m also drawn to thrillers and plan to write a psychological thriller once the Blood Bound Series is finished.
Amelia Lamont never asked to unleash her inner vampire
Amelia’s normal teen world is shattered when a terrifying nightmare awakens the monster inside her. A newfound, insatiable thirst for blood that leads her to drain the school quarterback is only the beginning; she’s horrified to discover that her family and best friend Kendrick have been harboring the secret all along. And is the strangely alluring boy who seems hell-bent on curbing her murderous, blood-filled desires a friend, or foe?
To escape detection Amelia and her twin brother Dorian are forced to move to a new town, and the challenge of a new, exclusive high school where nearly every classmate smells like prey. Including the irresistible Ty, who seems hauntingly familiar, yet darkly menacing …
Amelia’s disturbing dreams and entanglement in a web of forbidden romance render her increasingly powerless against the chilling lies and secrets of vampire power struggles. And, as she soon discovers, vampire politics mixed with outlawed love can be a lethal cocktail.
Falling in love may just cost Amelia everything: her friends, her family…even her life
