What is your favorite childhood book?
The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams. Given as a Christmas gift to a young boy, the Velveteen Rabbit lives in the nursery with all of the other toys, waiting for  the day when the Boy will choose him as a
playmate. In time, the shy Rabbit befriends the tattered Skin Horse, the wisest resident of the nursery, who reveals the goal of all nursery toys: to be made "real" through the love of a human. It's a story of how love makes us real.
What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?
For me, the hardest part is staying on track. My characters really do come alive and start doing their own thing. I have to pull them back and remind them of the plan!

Do you Google yourself?

I've read that it's a good idea to Google yourself once a month but I often forget. There are so many other ways of finding out what people think of my books (Twitter, Facebook etc.) that it's easy for reader sto connect with me. Having said that, I'm going to Google myself right now...

Tell us about your book...
Family Under Fire is part of the Harlequin's Colton 911. It is set in the fictional Arizona town of Cactus Creek. It's Christmas time and FBI agent, Everett Colton is back in his home town to investigate a murder. He's feeling less than festive and his mood is lowered even further when he comes face-to-face with the woman who dumped him four years earlier. But when the reason for their reunion becomes clear, he finds himself with a new family...and a dangerous stalker. 

Colton 911: Family Under Fire

An unexpected family

A once-in-a-lifetime reunion in danger…

After a bitter breakup, FBI agent Everett Colton never expected to see his ex-girlfriend, Alyssa Bartholomew, again. Suddenly, tragedy reunites them—and makes them guardians of an orphaned baby girl. Everett suspects that her parents’ deaths were anything but innocent. When his instinct for danger proves correct, it’s his job to protect the child he’s grown to love…and the woman he never forgot.
