The Storm of Emotion Series has been in the works for about 17 years. The character development took that long.  In the year 1818, Kerah has inherited an Egyptian merchant business, the estate and the mines. She is plunged into an entirely new world after her charmed life is shattered by a ruthless betrayal.  After a tremendous loss and violent storm at sea, she finds herself at the mercy of a charismatic and handsome foreigner. The Scotsman is determined to keep her by his side. She has other plans.

Circumstances dictate that she must accompany strangers to Scotland.  Kerah finds herself completely out of her element and unexpectedly surrounded by blood and death. She must battle her way through the unknown at every turn. Desire collides with duty in this unique tale of historical intrigue.  It is action-packed and fast-paced. It’s a diamond in the rough. Romance is a broad genre, but it’s never been done like this before.

What was the most challenging aspect of writing this book?

I was raising three kids and carving a life in the jungle of Hawaii. I chose the word carving because we started out in tents with no vehicle, running water and no electricity. We built our house room by room as we could afford it. It’s still not finished after 14 years. We had hardship that got in the way of prioritizing writing. My husband caught Spinal Meningitis and almost died, we suffered in a recession, he got a serious work injury, I was crippled for five years and had spinal surgery. There’s more, but you get the point. Yeah?

Any future projects that you are working on lately?

I started a new series called Science Meet God, after I had spinal surgery. I have fibromyalgia and a degenerative bone disease. As a result I feel like I’m often caged in my own body. What are the ways that I coped with it was writing.  It’s the year 2063. A new world order has been established. It is a society where technology and humanity are symbiotic. A pretty amnesiac soldier, a street kid, an Indian chief, a tomboy mechanic and a Pastor make up a motley crew of broken souls. Scripture, semi-precious stones, scientific jargon, angels, demons, a pastor, a necklace, a journal and a broken soldier….

It’s a puzzle they had better figure out, because demons are real and hell is coming.

Who are your favourite authors of all time?

I have insomnia, so I read a lot. My favourite authors are Nora Roberts and Iris Johansson. I like Michael Crichton and James Patterson too.

What in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?

When my kids were coming up they were and all kinds of stuff that had magic. And though witches Wizards Airbenders and fictional magical animals have their value I have their value in entertainment, they did not help my kids develop their character.  I wanted my young adult series to appeal to their sense of adventure, but also address moral issues. The first book is An Origin story, it doesn’t dive too deeply in into morals. But the characters will face real life issues and have to deal with making decisions ethically. God willing, it’ll catch traction and be successful.

How hard or easy is it to establish and maintain a career in writing?

Now that my kids are all grown and out of high school I can return to my love of writing.

What genre you like writing most?

I love writing romance adventure stories, but we all were given talents to use for good. So I couldn’t be restricted to explicit content that would just be wrong.  So I write for fun as a woman and I write for God’s glory for teens. Because teenagers are developing who they’re going to be as adults. They can’t just survive off vampires and witches and such. What we read and watch, it’s what we feed our souls, and as a mother I want kids to be healthier.
