To me the hardest part about being an author is balancing my time between writing and the real world. I have to remind myself to sleep.
Which book did you enjoy writing the most from all the books in your series?
That is an impossible question to answer. Each book has its own high moments, but I think Beyond a Reasonable Doubt is the one where I found myself not wanting to stop writing. The original manuscript was over one hundred thousand words, after wrestling back and forth with the editor we decided to break it into two books and that was the birth of Where Doubt Remains.
What inspired you to write this book?
I’ve always loved paranormal books and the premise of the fated mate. The idea that there is one perfect person that will be everything you need in a partner. But after reading a few I realized that most times the stories were too neat. It was too easy, I wanted the characters to have to work for their HEA. When I couldn’t find what I wanted, I decided to write one.
How many hours per day do you spend writing?
I don’t really schedule times. On average I strive to write two thousand words per day, once I reach that I write until I run out of words.
Name your top five favorite books?
Wow this is so hard but here you go, in no particular order. I love so many books it’s almost impossible to choose so these are books I have read more than once and still can’t get enough.
- Prey Series. John Sanford.
- I know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Maya Angelou.
- Harry Potter Series. J.K. Rowling
- Ripples in the Status Quo Series. R. Phoenix
- Upending Tad Series. Kora Knight.
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on the final book of my Gentlemen’s League Series. This series is completely different from Doubt. It is a spy/espionage thriller with romance. This is the fifth and final book, and it’s sad to know their story is closing
Beyond A Reasonable Doubt. Book 1 Doubt Series.
DeMatteo Santiago is the Alpha of one of the largest prides in North America. He is a young, successful lion shifter, surrounded by a large family and his devoted lover. By anyone’s account, he has more than any one man can ask for, but his lion cares of nothing except finding their mate.
An unexpected business trip pits DeMatteo and his long awaited mate on opposite sides of the courtroom. But when challenged by ex-lovers, nosy siblings, and crazy hunters, DeMatteo realizes that finding his mate was the easy part. The real question is whether they will live long enough to be together.
This release is an M/M paranormal shifter romance. This series will contain graphic violence, graphic language, and Mpreg. What it will not be is an instant mate fairytale, as forces set out to destroy everything and everyone.

When DeMatteo crawled to bed at 10:30 pm on May 7, 1980, there was no way of knowing how the next twenty-four hours would forever alter his life. As a young Alpha lion shifter, DeMatteo has left his pride in search of his mate and a pride of his own. But the fates have been conspiring for centuries to lead him to this precise moment in time.
May 8, 1980, 10:30 pm: a moment in time that will forever change the life of Matthew (DeMatteo) Santiago. Facing the challenges of being the new Alpha of the largest pride in the United States, DeMatteo must find a way to lead in the face of his own personal tragedy.
The story continues for Alpha DeMatteo Santiago and his mate. After the nightmare of having his pregnant mate kidnapped and tortured, DeMatteo begins the seemingly impossible process of piecing together the truth. Forces against them take this time to regroup and launch an all-out attack. Lies and half-truths fall apart as the past is investigated, but it’s a race against time and failure could prove to be fatal.
This release is an M/M paranormal shifter romance. This series will contain scenes of graphic violence, graphic sex, graphic language, Mpreg, and graphic birth. What it will not be is an instant mate fairytale, as forces set out to destroy everything and everyone around him.
