From the moment I learned to read, I loved to read. It was a coping skill I used to escape anything bad going on in my life. I devoured books. I was the kid who got in trouble because I was always in my room reading. My parents would make me come downstairs and sit at the table to read.
Me: What does your writing day look like?
Me: What has been your family members’ and friends’ reactions to your becoming a successful published author?
Me: If you could go back in time to before you wrote your first novel and give yourself a tip or secret about writing, publishing, or marketing your work, what would you say?
Abbie: It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Use every day to keep learning and growing.
Me: What are you currently reading for pleasure?
Me: What is your favorite of your own books and why?
It took me two and half years to write the version you read today. I wrote a first draft, spent a year editing it, then realized it sucked. I learned more about my craft, then went back and re-wrote the whole thing again and did it much better. I think part of why it’s my favorite is because I’ve spent more time with Lathan and Evanee than any of my other characters. And Lathan’s just hot. He rides a motorcycle, he’s got tattoos, he’s hearing impaired, and he’s downright perfect to me.
