What do you do to go beyond your comfort zone when it comes to writing and life?
Going beyond my comfort zone requires me to do research. I want to

about it. The same would hold true in life. I will look things up and see
how it's done before trying it.
Will you be attending any book signings or conventions?
I will be at Book Obsessed Babes Conference in Jacksonville in April,
A Weekend With The Authors in May, Romance in the Carolinas in
July/August, and Indie Romance Convention in November.
What's something about you -- personality traits, habits, background, etc that has been useful in your writing?
I'm short, so I tend to write more about short women (or from a
shorter perspective), I've had a lot of different jobs over my lifetime,
so I have real-life experiences to write from. I'm Hispanic, Irish, and
Czech, so I use those nationalities sometimes, when I write.
