Get to Know Your Favorite Authors
One of my favorite things to do as I’m writing is to create a Pinterest Board
and a Spotify playlist that match the theme of my book. I start adding songs to
my playlist as soon as I begin a story and continue, adding as I write. The same
is true of my Pinterest board. By the time my manuscript is complete I have the
journey well documented. Even more thrilling is when one Read More...
I’ve always been a daydreamer. When I was a kid, it usually translated into some
epic imaginary play with my brother and cousins. Nowadays, it ends up providing
great creativity to my day-job as a pediatric speech language pathologist and in
my night-job as a writer.
Daydreaming is a powerful tool of creativity, whether as a carpenter, teacher,
game designer, architect…any profession really. In story creating, it’s a
foundational element Read More...
Music can be the sound track to our emotions. A great song can not only change
your mood but also change your day. When a song speaks to you and knows your

and pick the top 5 songs for Hök Magnusson and Lady Sovia, the hero and heroine
of my new Viking romance, Read More...

chance to read the stories before anyone else!!!
A few things I learned about our heroes:
They all had rough childhoods, whether from abuse, neglect, or caught in a Read More...
What is it about opposites that attract?
You could say that the heroine and hero in THE BAD BOY’S BABY are an
opposites attract kind of couple. Admittedly, there are sometimes that I wonder
how my husband can think so opposite of how I do. Last summer we remodeled, and
our taste were so opposing that I often wondered how we ever managed to buy a
house together in Read More...
First off, thank you for doing this interview for us. I know you

Simeen: It’s okay. I actually could use a break from all that. And from checking
off items on Nirvaan’s tedious Titanic Wish List.
What’s the Titanic Wish List?

Taking time out to enjoy yourself is essential and it’s something I look forward
to. I spend part of my day working on the farm and part of it writing, but I
enjoy nothing better than to do something completely different.
I have always had an interest in history and love visiting castles or grand old
houses. I usually take my camera with me as it gives me a chance to indulge in
that Read More...
When I was asked to do a little piece for Fresh Fiction, I knew I wanted to tie
it to my new book, THE

Publishing. It’s a friends-to-lovers romance involving a frisky bartender,
Natalea Jones, and her best friend and most eligible bachelor, Drake Harte. The
story opens at Natalea’s Read More...

came about in an interesting way. At the end of book 4 in my SEAL of Protection Series, PROTECTING SUMMER, the
heroine was kidnapped by a serial killer who wanted to torture the Hero SEAL. In
order to accomplish this, he kidnapped Read More...
According to statistics, there are more than 33 million people in America–a
little more than 10% of the population–who lay claim to Irish ancenstors.
I am not one of them.
My bloodlines are strictly eastern European and I will take pierogi over corned
beef and cabbage any day, a shot of vodka (it has to be from Poland) instead of
a beer, a plate of the fruit-filled pastries called kolachki over . . . well Read More...
