Have you been traditionally published (novel, short story, or non-fiction)?
About ten years ago I wrote a non fiction article that was published in a weight loss magazine. My books are self-published.
What type(s) of fiction do you most enjoy reading? Favorite recent read?
I love reading crime fiction, thrillers, and southern humor books. Right now I’m in the process of re-reading John Lutz’s Frank Quinn Series.
Why did you choose to publish this book independently?
I didn’t want to wait for my books to be picked up by a publisher, if ever.
Have you enjoyed the experience / process? Would you recommend Indy publishing to others?
I’ve enjoyed everything about the process except for the editing. I hate proofreading. Yes, I recommend it, specially if you want to see your work in print quickly.
Give a blurb for your story.

After he ambushed them and killed them all, including the son of infamous drug lord Manny Ruiz, the Ruiz family declared war. Manny Ruiz had his goons kidnap Samantha and Manny brutalized her, leaving her traumatized and haunted for the rest of her days. She married Andy, the vice detective who saved her, but the Ruiz family hasn’t forgotten them. They still want revenge, and they won’t stop until Samantha and Andy are dead.
