1--What is the title of your latest release?


2--What’s the “elevator pitch” for your new book?

Once upon a time JJ Jones turned her ex into a frog. Now he’s back and she’s got some explaining to do.

3--How did you decide where your book was going to take place?

It’s part of my series, Season of the Witch. I wanted the location for the series to be somewhere fun, cozy, charming, magical, and coastal. So I created a fictional town (based on a few different real towns) on the Oregon Coast, which is one of my favorite places.

4--Would you hang out with your sleuth in real life?

Absolutely. If for nothing else than the cocktails!

5--What are three words that describe your sleuth?

Midlife, Magical, Determined

6--What’s something you learned while writing this book?

The magical and health properties of cardamom, the meaning of various houseplants, and how to make homemade arancello.

7--Do you edit as you draft or wait until you are totally done?

I wait until I’m done. My first draft is usually a hot mess.

8--What’s your favorite foodie indulgence?

Afternoon tea at the Clockwork Rose Tea Emporium

9--Describe your writing space/office!

I have a chaise in my office and right now I sit on that and use a lap desk to write.

10--Who is an author you admire?

There are so many it’s hard to pick just one, but I’m a huge fan of Agatha Christie and think she was just the most interesting person and an amazing author.

11--Is there a book that changed your life?

The first time I read an Agatha Christie book (at age 10) I realized that THIS was what I wanted to do. I knew before that, but I wasn’t able to really articulate it as a career until then.

12--Tell us about when you got “the call.” (when you found out your book was going to be published)

I didn’t. I got rejection after rejection after rejection. Then I read about self-publishing and the rest was history. Yes, I did eventually get “the call” (or rather email), but only after I was successfully publishing books on my own.

13--What’s your favorite genre to read?

It changes a lot. I go through moods where I only read a certain genre for months on end, then I switch and read a new genre. Currently I’m really into PWF (Paranormal Women’s Fiction).

14--What’s your favorite movie?

Again, too many to count, but Love, Actually is way up there.

15--What is your favorite season?

It’s a toss-up. I’d say spring, except my hay fever is so bad it’s hard to enjoy it, so autumn is a win for me.

16--How do you like to celebrate your birthday?

Cake. Lots and lots of cake.

17--What’s a recent tv show/movie/book/podcast you highly recommend?

I can’t get enough of Only Murders in the Building. I’m also super swoony over The Gilded Age.

18--What’s your favorite type of cuisine?

It’s another toss-up between Italian and Indian. I love them both so much.

19--What do you do when you have free time?

Free time? What’s that? Kidding. I deliberately take time to read every single day. It’s both a relaxing escape and a way to learn and improve my craft.

20--What can readers expect from you next?

I’m currently working on the first book in a new series called Edwina Gale, Paranormal Investigator which features a sixty-something year-old witch who investigates paranormal crimes with help from her boyfriend (who is the chief of police), her bestie (an almost immortal Egyptian priestess), and a drag queen who also happens to be a were-jackal.
