Tell us about a favorite character from a book.
Torin St. James. Six-feet-three, shaggy, raven-colored hair, brilliant blue eyes, he has a thing for motorcycles and leather jackets. He might use portals to move from place to place, but if he can hop on his Harley and take off, he’s happy. He is amazingly protective, loyal and super-hot. Even when he doesn’t remember Raine, he protects her.
Where do you dream of traveling to and why?
Egypt and Europe. I love old buildings, beautiful building, building with historical significance. I would love to see the pyramids, Parthenon in Greece, Temple of Hera and the coliseum in Italy, the Vatican…
Tell us about your current release.
Immortals is book 2 in the Runes series. Runes focuses on Norse mythology and follows the life of a seventeen-year-old and the Valkyrie she falls in love with.
Who is your favorite author?
When in the day/night do you write? How long per day?
Since I have five kids, four of whom I have to pick up from school and drop off at the after-school activities, I tend to write better at night. I also write during the day. I’d say 6 hours of computer time a day. Some of that I spend editing, formatting, marketing and talking to Dell people because my computers tend to beak down a lot.
How do you describe your writing style?
I am a quasi-plotter. I don’t plot like a regular person. I sit back and mull over what I want to write. I see the characters in my head, what they look like, their quirks, who their friends are, their parents, the setting of their story, their motives, and how they meet. Usually, I mentally go over that first meeting, the few scenes that follow and how the story will end. Whatever happens between those first scenes and the last chapter I let the characters lead me.
Do you hear from your readers? What kinds of questions do they ask?
LOL, I hear from readers all the time. Some want to know when the next book will be released or tell me what they liked or didn’t like about the book. A few have asked me why I chose Norse mythology since it’s not so popular. The best question was if I modeled Torin after a real guy and where could they meet him. I loved that. Sorry, ladies, he’s a figment of my imagination.
Tell us about your family.
I came to the United States as a graduate student, met the love of my life, and got married. We now have five children—four girls and one boy, two cats (Miu and Kenya), two mice (Cake and Fiona) and a Fish (Johnny Bravo)

Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…
Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.
So Raine comes up with a plan...
She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again.
But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.
