What book made you fall in love with the genre you write?
Pride and Prejudice.
If a movie were made of your most recent book, who would you cast in
the lead and why?
Chris Pratt. Well, do I really need a why? 😉 Right. I think he’d be awesome, because he’s funny and swoony at the same time, which embodies the type of heroes I write. I write humorous, swoon-worthy cowboys who know how to crack a joke with the right quirky gal. I think Chris could crack a joke or two, don’t you?
What was the first story you ever wrote?
PRETTY RECKLESS: A Deputy Laney Briggs Novel, which was published by Entangled Publishing.
If you could change the ending to any famous book, TV show, or
movie, what would it be and how would you rewrite it? (Spoiler alert!)
Of course, I have to say Gone Girl. My need for a HEA either in romance or thrillers or horror films (books, too), makes me want to have Amy Dunne arrested and pay for her crimes. But then maybe Nick Dunne should pay for his crimes, as well, so that would leave the detectives experiencing their HEA.
What is your favorite part of meeting your readers (and new
I love meeting readers, previous and new readers, and hearing how much they adore my characters. How my characters were so real and they can’t wait to come back to my fictional small towns in Texas and meet new people.
