Thanks to The Pen & Muse for hosting me!
Where are you from? Tell us a little about yourself!
I am from a small town in Northeast Ohio. Basically it’s cows and corn. Not that I would have it any other way.
I’m married with three wonderful furbabies – two Australian Cattle Dogs, and a cat that I found my senior year of high school. I love film and studied it in college – along with writing, theatre, and history – with the intention of breaking into both directing and writing. Hollywood may not have happened, but I’m still writing which is half of that accomplished.
I am a history nerd. I enjoy all things space related. I have an addiction to loose-leaf tea and I do not apologize for it. I can often be found dancing around the house to music while doing chores. I’m a big gamer – I met my husband at a Halo LAN party. I’m very much involved in fandom. Really, I’m just a plain, all around geek.
Tell us about your book? How did it get started?
It began with the idea that Person A was shot and Person B, a cop, saved their life. That was literally the only starting part. From there it grew and changed, morphing into what it is today.
One Bullet follows Ethan Brant, a former police officer with PTSD after being shot. Detective Shawn Greyson, who saved his life that night, is a support system that Ethan desperately needs. Along with a host of friends and family, the guys take a journey of healing and finding love.
How do you create your characters?
Is it sad to say I don’t really know? It’s a strange concept to non-writers, but these characters really do write themselves. I provide a very basic idea of characterization and then I just let them tell me who they are.
