Tell us a little about yourself. If you love Pride and Prejudice, pirates, sitting on the beach, homemade cookies, Mexican food, holidays, Pinterest, antiques, small children, cats, dogs, or long naps we should be friends.
I'm a romantic and my own worse critic; a left-handed, dry humored, quirky wallflower with a serious bucket list that includes traveling whenever I can and trying new things, even if they scare me. I coupon, cruise, shop consignment stores and am addicted to Chick-fil-A. Hobbies are occasional gardening which I stink at, decorating which I also stink at, and running which is touch and go. I like to hike and scuba dive. I love the mountains and the sea. I believe in a loving, patient, and forgiving God. I love people and care about others around me deeper than I can sometimes express.
Life for me has been an incredible journey of family, friends, people, places, and discovering things both old and new. I'm a writer, but I'm also a friend, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, a mother, a wife, and much more.
What was your motivation behind this project? I have a hard time finding clean romances and adventures, so that's why I write them. My motivation for this book was to bring back the magic of one of my favorite childhood movies, Goonies. I love to travel to the Caribbean, so it seemed like a perfect mix to blend a lost pirate treasure with a tropical setting.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope to inspired courage for adventure when I write all of my books. I love to write about characters who discover they can be more than they ever imagined.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? This project involved researching the island and history of Antigua. I love to learn new things, plus I was able to write about one of my favorite hobbies--genealogy!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I began seriously writing after reading a series by Patrick O'Brian called Master and Commander. Those beautiful Age of Sail stories combined so neatly with my passion for Jane Austen, I was inspired to publish my first book, The Privateer.
