1. How and when did you get started as a writer?
I wrote Dominic when I was 19 on a whim, just to get the story out of my head really. I found that writing it was the most enjoyable thing I've ever done. I fell in love with it :)
2. How do you usually find your ideas?
It can be the most random things. I usually get scene ideas from things I see on a daily basis, but most of the time I just stare into space until I figure out what happens next, lol.
3. Where do you write from? (home, office etc.)
At home, in my bedroom/office.
4. How long does it take you to write a book?
It varies. Dominic took nine weeks, Alec took twelve weeks and Bronagh took thirteen days.
5. What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
I try to get at least 4k words wrote each day so it depends on how good things are going. It can stretch from three hours to six.
6. Do you have any suggestions to help become a better writer? If so, what are they?
Write, write, and write some more. Stay true to you, and don't change your writing for anyone.
7. Something personal about you people may be surprised to know?
I'm was a teen mom, I had my daughter when I was seventeen.
8. What is your greatest weakness?
Overall? Trusting people too easily.
9. What is your greatest strength?
My ability to see through bullshit, lol.
10. As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
An archaeologist. I was a history freak in primary school :)
1. Favorite movie. Hmmm. Pearl Harbour or Willow
2. Favorite website. Facebook, I'm always on it.
3. Favorite color. Blue.
4. Favorite book. Can't answer, too hard.
5. Favorite country. My own country, Ireland, is my number one, but I LOVED Scotland when I went to a signing there back in July.

After a car accident killed her parents when she was a child, Bronagh Murphy chose to box herself off from people in an effort to keep herself from future hurt. If she doesn't befriend people, talk to them or acknowledge them in any way they leave her alone just like she wants.
When Dominic Slater enters her life, ignoring him is all she has to do to get his attention. Dominic is used to attention, and when he and his brothers move to Dublin, Ireland for family business, he gets nothing but attention. Attention from everyone except the beautiful brunette with a sharp tongue.
Dominic wants Bronagh and the only way he can get to her, is by dragging her from the boxed off corner she has herself trapped in the only way he knows how...by force.
Dominic wants her, and what Dominic wants, Dominic gets.
Bronagh Murphy has been through a lot over the past few years, a hell of a lot, so when her 21st birthday rolls around all she wants to do is relax and spend the day with her family. Quietly.
Her boyfriend, Dominic Slater, doesn't do relaxed or quiet. He never has, and he never will. He plans out a day for Bronagh that is both romantic, and exciting. However, Dominic's version of exciting is very different to Bronagh's as she will soon find out.
When things take a turn for the worst, and a bad altercation leaves Dominic once again fighting for his girl, Bronagh will have to decide once and for all if she will fight in Dominic's corner or walk away and never look back.
Bronagh loves Dominic, and what Bronagh loves, Bronagh protects.
Keela Daley is the black sheep of her family. She has always come second to her younger cousin Micah. Even in the eyes of her mother, Micah shone bright, and Keela faded to black. Now, in adulthood, Micah is a bride-to-be and the spotlight is solely on her. Keela is a low priority...or so she thinks.
Alec Slater is a bachelor, never one to bed the same woman, or man, twice. He is a free agent who does what he pleases and answers to no one; that is until a fiery Irish redhead with a temper to match her hair colour knocks him on his arse. Literally.
She hates to admit it, but Keela needs a favour from the cocky Slater brother, a huge favour. She needs him to not only escort her to Micah's wedding, but to also pose as her boyfriend. Alec agrees to help Keela, but has certain conditions for her to abide by. He wants her body and plans to have it before anyone can say I do.
What he doesn't plan on is losing his heart as well as the possibility of losing his family when someone from his past threatens his future.
Alec owns Keela, and what Alec owns, Alec keeps.
