How did you get started as an author?

I was always a writer but my husband really urged me to write a book. 

What was your first book?

My first book written was Grayson From my Bully Series. 

What are you writing about in the anthology?

My story is about a man with a heart defect meeting the woman of his dreams. The defect takes over their new relationship and it will either make them or break them. 

Why are you taking part in this anthology?

Initially it was because a friend asked me but I quickly fell in love with the idea of writing a story about and for men. 

Why do you think it's important to spread the message of this anthology?

People tend to think that when men get sick, it’s automatically man flu. Ya know, getting whiny and babyish about getting sick. I think a lot of people tend to forget that men suffer like women, but a lot of them suffer in silence because they’re trying to be strong for their partners or family. I think showing strong stories about men who are fighters despite an illness shows that men can be vulnerable and masculine at the same time.

Did you research your story?

I did! I found some interesting stories regarding different types of heart defects. 

Is there any one thing you have to have when writing?

Noise. Mostly I listen to music when I write. 

What influences your work?

Real life stories. Most of my stories are based off of a real life experience.
