Hey everyone, check out my interview at Shut Up & Read



Here's an excerpt:


Q: In your opinion, what makes a good, strong female character?  
Flaws, Relatability, Strength

I hate perfection. Humans are deeply flawed, but these imperfections make us beautiful. Plus, they toughen us up for life’s many battles. Writing strong females with relatable flaws and experiences allow readers to bond with characters and be inspired by their strength. I am bothered by those who believe the physical display of strength is the only one that matters. Strength comes in many forms. In BSV for instance, Cassidy is supernaturally strong, but it is her emotional strength that is reshaped and honed throughout the book. While many don’t realize it, love requires strength. So does forgiveness and being happy.
