Natalie StarQ: How did you get started writing?

A: No joke, I was bored one day, it had snowed out and we were all stuck in the house for the weekend. So I pulled out my laptop and started writing about a dream I had (Cliché I know).

Q: What made you decide to write in the genre you chose?

A: I write romance because it’s what I enjoy reading.  I couldn’t imagine trying to write in a genre that I didn’t enjoy. That would be difficult.

Q: What are some of the steps you take to ready yourself to write?

A: I wait until everyone is in bed, or work (we have third-shifters in the house), and turn off anything making noise, and all but one dim light, and then clear a spot on my desk, boot up the computer, and off I go!

Q: Do you have any hobbies? What do you like to do in your free time?

A: I enjoy quite a few things; Traveling, photography, painting, gardening, scrapbooking, and spending time with the family.

Q: What is your all-time favorite book? Movie?

A: I don’t have just one favorite book. I just love them in general. But I have to give props to Twilight, it’s what really started me thinking that maybe I could write something similar.
Favorite movie? Just about everything/anything from the 80’s.

Q: When you read for yourself, what is your favorite genre?

A: Romance across the board, it doesn’t matter the sub-genre, but there has to be romance with HFN or HEA endings.

Q: After a difficult day what do you do to recuperate? How do you unwind?

A: If it’s been a real tough day, I’ll take a nap on the couch in the evening. If my brain is going non-stop, I’ll get online and watch funny videos, or scroll aimlessly to distract my brain from the difficulties of the day. Almost always works!

Q: For what are you grateful?

A: My brain almost exploded reading this question. Every of the million thoughts that crossed my mind, it all comes back to my family! I’m ever grateful for my family.

Q: If you could go back in time to when you were seven years old, what wisdom or advice would you pass on to yourself?

A: Seven, that’s too long ago for my brain to remember lol. But I would tell myself it was all going to work out. I would go on to be successful and happy in life. I would also tell my older self to get in shape and stay in shape.

Q: At what age were you the happiest? What triggered such joy?

A: My twenties, that was a good decade. I got married, we lived overseas for four years, and traveled quite a bit to different countries, and then settled down once we moved back stateside, and started our family (we have two children).

Q: How can our readers connect with you?

A: I’m here and there online:
