Hi Melinda! Thanks for stopping by. :)
· Do you have any advice for aspiring writers? Is there anything you wish someone had told you?
Never give up and believe in yourself. Also, listen to those in the industry. Most of them really know what they’re talking about.
· Concerts can be very expensive, who do you think is worth the splurge?
I’d definitely splurge on Maroon 5. It’s not a secret that I have a little crush on Adam Levine, plus I love dancing to their music.
· Have you ever read a book that you expected to enjoy but didn’t or, vice versa, read a book that you didn’t expect to enjoy and fell in love with it anyway? Which book?
Yes, I just finished On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves and I am so glad I read it. I put it off for months, because I really don’t like the cougar trope – older woman, younger man. But, I have to say that Tracey really did a great job letting their love grow on you. An unexpected, awesome read! I highly recommend it.
· What is your favorite board game? Card game?
Okay, the inner geek in me is asking, “What about computer games?” I’ve been known to get addicted to different Zynga games – Farmville, Cityville, etc. Lately, I’ve been playing Clash of Clans, which my students showed me. Dorkity-dork-dork! But, if I had to pick a favorite card game, because I do like them, it’d be Gin Rummy or Golf.
· What was your favorite subject at school?
In high school, I was a drama nerd. I loved acting and I was a proud Thespian! In college, I was a Political Science and Communication double major. I absolutely loved my American Politics courses.
· Please describe your perfect day.
A day at a Guatemalan beach. I love my adopted country and the black-sand beaches are some of the most relaxing. I’d wake up, grab a cup of coffee and a great read, head to the pool or beach and lay back for the rest of the day. A whole day of nothingness is perfect!
Take a look at where I hung out the last time I was at the beach:
· Please share a favorite line from your newest book.
From Time Changes Everything:
Amanda licked her lips, and damn it, it actually turned him on. Sweet little Mandy Larson wasn’t so sweet anymore. She was driving him crazy.
From Breaking the Rules, which will come out in July from Crimson Romance:
Her back squared and for a moment, she looked fearless as a shark. But he knew otherwise. He scared the crap out of her—in a good way—and he wasn’t about to let her slip from his fingers.
Time Changes Everything

Amanda Larson is dedicated to her job and doesn't want to make time for anything else. Until she runs into Jake Edwards. He used to be the cute boy next door; now he's a sexy, big shot lawyer.
Jake Edwards isn't interested in commitment. He's successful, sexy, and single--and that's how he likes it. When he reconnects with Amanda, Jake realizes he might have to rethink his philosophy on the carefree, bachelor lifestyle.
But, is it too late for them? Or can he convince her that he's ready to give her his heart?
Time Changes Everything is available now through Entranced Publishing!
