Here’s the blurb for the anthology, A Celtic Tapestry:
The wheel of the year turns, bringing the joy of spring, the warmth of summer, the richness of autumn, and the merriment of winter. But eight Celtic festivals link these seasons together, bringing with them romance, lust, danger, and even magic. From a city under threat from night-time creatures at Ostara, to a selkie caught by the light of the Lughnasadh moon, to a writer caught in the flames of a fiery goddess at Imbolc.

Eight authors have come together to give their own twist on these festivals, weaving each story with a blend of myth, magic, and contemporary telling…to create A Celtic Tapestry.
1 When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first word at 6 months. Does that count?
2 Did you always want to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?
Well, I always wanted to do and be a million different things, so yes, maybe I did always want to be a writer.
3 What genre do you prefer to work within? Or do you mix it up?
I’m very comfortable with explicit Horror/Supernatural fiction. A Celtic Tapestry is a romance. It was a true challenge writing about real people.
4 Where does your inspiration for these stories (this story) come from?
I don’t know where inspiration comes from. Magic in Memphis, my Yule story from A Celtic Tapestry, started as a thought. Simply…what if…?
5 What has your publishing experience been like?
Publishing is a never ending roller coaster ride of action packed adventure.
6 Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? i.e. You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?
Music. Music is always involved in some way, but never in the same way twice. I have no rituals or set routine for writing, except I write something/anything/ everyday.
7 How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?
Great question. So far, all the names and places have come to me. Then, I drive my friends crazy until we all agree that, yes, that is the name for those characters. In Magic in Memphis, Victoria Bryant simply started out as Vix. For the male lead character, I wanted a name that was impossibly English. His name is James Wellington.
Victoria Bryant is the favourite because she just leads a normal life and enjoys her career. She never expected to meet a man like James Wellington. James was fun to write. Beautiful cads are always fun, but I knew he had a heart and a brain so he would realize how special Victoria is.
9 Did you learn anything from writing your book? What was it?
I learned that it is very difficult for me to write about normal people with real emotions. It really did take me a long time to get this story on the page.
10 How did you/do you market your work?
Social media, blogs…all the usual marketing.
11 What piece of advice would you give to a new writer?
Don’t quit your day job.
12 Are you working on anything new? If so, can you tell me about it?
Let me get back with you on this one. There’s some exciting news on the way.
