Where are you from?
I’m from, and reside in Houston, Texas.

When and why did you begin writing?
I began writing professionally twenty years ago when I was nineteen. I got the writing bug and fell in love with the craft. I always loved reading and had a great imagination so writing fit me. I couldn’t see myself doing anything else.

What inspired you to write your first book?
The same thing that has inspired me to write all my books. I get an interesting idea in my head, and I begin writing. It always starts with an idea for me.

What are your current projects?
I’m always working on something. I am finishing up Twisted, which is the final book in the Bruised Romantic Suspense series. I have some other books I plan to release, but I like to keep my upcoming books a secret until it gets close to publication. *smiles*

Who designed the covers?
Now that I am self-publishing, I design my own covers, and it’s one of my favorite parts of the process.

What was the hardest part of writing your book?
The hardest part is always the beginning. I outline but the beginning is difficult because I’m just getting to know the characters myself. Once I am familiar with them then the writing really takes off and I get into my groove. It’s like that with all my books unless I am doing a continuation of a series. The thing about Dead Weight is I originally wrote this probably back in early 2000s and it’s finally getting released. It’s one of my favorite stories so I’m glad it’s making its debut even though it took a long time. LOL!

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
I want to say I appreciate all the support you’ve shown me, and I hope you continue to enjoy my work!

Many thanks to Stacy to spending a few minutes with us. Her next book, Dead Weight (BWWM Romance), releases on June 28th and is available for #Preorder for only #99cents! Grab your copy TODAY – the price goes up on release day!

Author Spotlight – Emily O’Beirne

Emily OBeirne

Thirteen-year-old Emily woke up one morning with a sudden itch to write her first novel. All day, she sat through her classes, feverishly scribbling away (her rare silence probably a cherished respite for her teachers). And by the time the last bell rang, she had penned fifteen handwritten pages of angsty drivel, replete with blood-red sunsets, moody saxophone music playing somewhere far off in the night, and abandoned whiskey bottles rolling across tables. Needless to say, that singular literary accomplishment is buried in a box somewhere, ready for her later amusement.

From Melbourne, Australia, Emily was recently granted her PhD. She works part-time in academia, where she hates marking papers but loves working with her students. She also loves where she lives but travels as much as possible and tends to harbour crushes on cities more than on people.


Points of Departure

cover_Points-of-Departure_500x800

In this young adult novel friends Kit and Liza have been looking forward to this trip forever.

Five girls, five tickets overseas. It’s exactly what they all need after the final slog of high school. But when Kit is suddenly forced to drop out, Liza’s left with three girls she barely knows.

There’s Mai, committed only to partying. There’s Tam, who already has her doubts about leaving her sick father behind. And there’s Olivia, so miserable about screwing up exams she’s not even sure she wants to get out of bed, let alone on a plane.

All Liza wants from this trip is to discover a new version of herself. She just hadn’t planned on doing it without Kit by her side.

And they’re all learning that travel isn’t just about the places you go, but about who you’re with at the time.

A Story of Now

cover_A-Story-of_Now_500x800

Nineteen-year-old Claire Pearson knows she needs a life. And some new friends.

But brittle, beautiful, and just a little bit too sassy for her own good sometimes, she no longer makes friends easily. And she has no clue where to start on the whole finding a life front, either. Not after a confidence-shattering year dogged by bad break-ups, friends who have become strangers, and her constant failure to meet her parents sky-high expectations.

When Robbie and Mia walk into Claire’s work they seem the least likely people to help her find a life. But despite Claire’s initial attempts to alienate them, an unexpected new friendship develops.

And it’s the warm, brilliant Mia who seems to get Claire like no one has before. Soon, Claire begins to question her feelings for her new friend.

The Sum of These Things

cover_The-Sum-Of-These-Things_500x800

In the sequel to A Story of Now, Claire Pearson has already learned a few things this summer. Like falling for a girl is easy. Well, it is if that girl is Mia.

What Claire hasn’t learned yet is that now comes the hard part: learning to trust in this new relationship. And that isn’t easy when no one has ever given you a reason to trust before.

Then there’s the pressing question of what to do with her life. Claire’s new volunteer job working with kids offers a glimpse of a potential future, but it definitely isn’t something her pushy mother is going to like.

Still, everything feels hopeful as she embarks on the next chapter of her life, armed with new friends and the warm and funny Mia. But Claire quickly discovers that negotiating this new terrain of adulthood isn’t easy. Over the rest of this momentous summer, the biggest lesson Claire must learn is how not to let anything get in the way of her happiness. Especially herself.
