- How many unpublished or half-finished novels do you have?
- Do you think you’ll ever complete all of them?
Right now, I have 2 unfinished novels and I will complete them. I’ll explain why.
I’m always writing about 2-books at time which is why I can celebrate a new Book release every 4-6 months.
It’s become quite routine. I give a completed manuscript to my editors and start on a new one. It takes some time for my artists to create the cover designs, my editors to come back with markings and for me to look over and sign book contracts.
So, I use this in-between time to start working on new pages and doing research for my next release.
Right now, my Romance Fiction book Once Upon a Time…In a Dental Office is with one of my editors. It’s currently not published but it will be in a few months.
While that one is “cooking in the oven” (as I call it), I am writing a book tentatively called Be the Sunshine, a Nonfiction piece about spreading joy and kindness to others. This one is not complete and I am currently writing the First Draft.
- Do you have a writing schedule? A specific time of day or hours per day that you write?
I try to make writing a full-time priority. I have an office in my house that has the perfect setup: candles, music, space to pace around and think, no distractions!
At the very least, I write an hour a day. I do not have a writing schedule. I just use up every available hour of my day to put pen to paper, sometimes staying up at odd hours of the night to get pages done and to meet deadlines.
- Do you hide little secrets in your books?
I love to add real-life people as characters for my stories. In fact, I’ve used over 50 of my friends on the pages in my books.
I do this because I want to add realism to the piece and because I think it’s fun to include my friends as main characters or pop up characters.
My husband, Travis Rodgers, is an “easter egg” character in every book!
Even though this is something unique to me as an Author, it does create challenges.
My friends need to fill out permission forms so I can use their name and likeness. If my friends are a main character, they fill out a questionnaire so I can craft the character to be similar to that person.
This does add extra work for me, but I love when the book gets launched and all my friends are excited.
- What was the most challenging aspect of your latest novel?
My last novel was Andrew’s First Act which was released in August, 2021. I write my stories from a first-person narrative, and this book was from Andrew Masterson’s point-of-view. I really had to embrace being a male character and seeing things from his perspective.
Needless to say, my husband, Travis, had to help me with this piece.
Also, Andrew’s First Act is about Andrew trying to become a Stand-up Comedian in New York City. I had to come up with original jokes for my story. I watched a lot of Stand-up comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Brian Regan and Jim Gaffigan as research for this book!

Excerpt from the Book
“I pray Colossians 1:9–11 over you as the reader. I pray that you will not cease to make your requests known to God, and that you may be filled with the deep and clear knowledge of God’s will operating in spiritual wisdom. I pray that you will have comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God, and that you will be able to understand and discern spiritual things during the day and during your life (vs. 9). I pray that you will live and conduct yourself in a way that pleases the Lord, and that you will desire to make Him smile in everything that you do. I pray that you will bear much fruit walking with God and continue to do good works as well as growing and increasing in your knowledge (vs. 10). I pray that you will be invigorated and strengthened with His power to bring out His glory in your life. I pray that when life gets too tough, you will always choose to get closer to God, and exercise endurance and patience with joy. Know that throughout it all, you are surrounded by your Father, your Big Brother and your Best Friend every step of
the way.” – excerpt from page 202–203 (Book: God the Father, Jesus the Big Brother, Holy Spirit the Best Friend)
