“My name is Nevi, Nevi Sharpe,” he said with a deep, sultry accent. “May I ask with whom I have the pleasure of sharing scratch-off tickets?”

I wanted to answer him but I was still stuck on stupid. I opened my mouth to speak and absolutely nothing came out.

How embarrassing.

How ridiculous.

How mortifying.

He was just a man, after all. What was my issue?

I just couldn’t move past the sense of magnificence that permeated the air around him. It was both electrifying and nerve wracking.

“You have a phone call,” blurted the bland voice of Miss Congeniality as she approached my newly discovered god-man with a cordless phone.

“Please excuse me,” he murmured in my direction as he snapped the phone from the clerk’s hand, obviously unhappy to be disturbed.

“Lizzy. Lizzy Ewing,” I forced past my lips as he stood up. “My name’s Lizzy Ewing.”

I could feel flames consume my cheeks when I realized how desperate my voice must have sounded. He studied me with dancing eyes—momentarily forgetting his annoyance about the phone call.“Nice to meet you, Lizzy Ewing,” he said warmly. “Please excuse me.”

With that, he lifted the phone unceremoniously to his ear and disappeared through a doorway behind the counter. I assumed it led to his office. At the faint sound of another door shutting behind that door, I felt I assumed right.

The clerk shuffled through the array of lotto tickets spread out on the counter in front of me with a notable smirk on her broad, acne infested face before looking up at me. “That’ll be twenty-five dollars,” she stated smugly.

I stood there looking at her for a brief moment while it registered with me…I was getting stuck with the entire bill of my not so private scratch-off tryst!

How long did it take you to write THE VAMPIRE THE HANDLER AND ME?

In retrospect, THE VAMPIRE, THE HANDLER, AND ME flowed from me fairly quickly; approximately three months. It took much longer to find a publisher willing to take a chance on a new author.

If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?

Vampire Nevi.  I find him not only sexy, but resourceful and caring.

If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?

Lizzy's personality was based on a childhood best friend so I'd have to say Lizzy.

What inspired you to write your first book?

I was recovering from a serious auto accident and feeling quite sorry for myself.  Realizing this, a dear friend of mine suggested, and suggested, and suggested... until I finally listened... that I fill my long boring recovery time with something that was enjoyable and constructive.

What is your favorite book that you wrote?

I would have to say THE VAMPIRE, THE HANDLER, AND ME; not because I feel it is the best book I've written... I think all of my work is equally enjoyable in its own right....or even that it was my first novel written... but because it is the novel that caught the attention of and convinced a publisher to take a chance on me.

How do you overcome writer’s block?

I walk away for a bit, relax, and assure myself the words will flow when I return.  Most of the time it works!

What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks? 

I'm a pretty strong advocate of ebooks.  They save a lot of trees and don't require massive floor/room space for storage. 

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for reading (and sometimes giving a great review) my work.  I put my heart and soul into pulling these stories out of my mind's dream pattern and making sure they present an easy to follow and entertaining story.  Reader support lets me know I was able to pull it off and encouraged me to do it again.
