Describe your book in a tweet (140 characters or less)
- A heartbroken Brooklyn meets a young CEO, Logan Colton. The two embark on an unknown journey with twists and turns. Brooklyn questions whether she can endure the journey ahead.
What was your inspiration for your book?
- I decided to write Unsettled as a way to express some of my internal thoughts. In life we all go through trying experiences and sometimes they are hard to move past. In Brooklyn and Logan’s case, they are both plagued by secrets. In life every person has to be willing to take chances, and make changes. If you can’t do that, then what do you have? You’re just left Unsettled.
Did you always want to be an author?
- Yes and no. I always enjoyed using my creative propensity. I found pleasure in writing short poems and things of that nature. For a while I considered medical school, then law school, but for me, those professions were more of a means to earn a substantial living. My father always told me to choose a profession that I didn’t feel like would be “work.” I ended up doing the opposite and pursued my Masters degree in Public Policy and Administration. From that point I acquired a position within the government. Over the course of the last few years, I found myself yearning for me. I would say that the day my husband brought me the Kindle was the day that my life and outlook changed. I started thinking back on my father’s words and what I found joy in. I’ve always been an avid reader, and many close friends always told me that they thought I wrote well. About a year ago, a tiny light bulb went off, propelling me to pursue my creative passion for writing. Had it not been for the ever evolving world of self-publishing, I am not sure that I would have ever seriously pursued my dreams of becoming a published author.
Besides writing, what other interests/hobbies do you have?
- Aside from writing, I enjoy curling up with my e-reader and absorbing myself in novels loaded with emotion, desire, and passion. I also like to spend sunny, wistful afternoons, in my hammock thinking up new ideas for great stories. I love to cook and create new recipes. I also enjoys spending time with my loving family and friends and traveling.
