Publisher and Editor-in-Chief at Breathless Press!

Eggnog or Mimosas? Are you old enough to drink?
I enjoy both (but not together). Eggnog is really good in coffee, and mimosas are good with breakfast. J
We’re also taking pictures with Santa, did you bring a gift for him? (Maybe a new release or a pretty book cover…)
I did J It’s one of our new releases this month!
Please enter. Drinks are served by the elves in the corner.
What’s your favorite holiday and why?
My favorite holiday is… ok I don’t really have a favorite holiday. I love summer break (or just the summer). I am a sun person and would love to lay in hot weather all day long. I’m in Canada, so for about 8 months of the year, we get snow; and cold weather. It’s quite depressing.
Did you ask Santa for anything good?
I asked him for more time. It seems like this year is going by fast. I’m not much for asking for things during Christmas. But there are a few things I wouldn’t mind him bringing me
What’s your favorite place to spend the holidays?
Last year, I spent it at my brother’s place. He lives in the interior of British Columbia aka mountains. We had about 5 feet of snow at his place and when we went up to the top of the mountain, it was about 10-12 feet of snow. Everything was still, white, silent. It was an amazing holiday. One that I would love to repeat.
What is your favorite Christmas memory?
My favorite memory would be when my grandmother used to come down and stay with us for the holidays. It always felt traditional to have her there with us…
Do you have personal resolutions for the New Years? Anything interesting?
Work harder, faster, and eat less LOL
Why do you publish romance?
Romance brings joy in so many forms to a lot of readers. I like it when I can see a reader who finds a new author thrilling.
What do you love in running a pub?
Running a publishing company is hard. It takes a lot of dedication, time, and effort. At times, it feels like I am being pulled in every direction but at the same time, I get to talk to people from all over the world and make new friends in countries that are “across the pond” from Canada. I like being busy and the constant deadline of something. It’s how I made it through University lol.
What advice would you give aspiring authors?
Never stop writing. Even if you get a hundred rejections, you should never stop writing. You can only get better.
Who are some of your favorite authors?
I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy with a small mix of romance. Some of the authors I enjoy are Robert J Sawyer, Stephanie Meyer (yes, she is a decent author), LJ Smith, Jessica Lee, Piers Anthony just to name a few.
What goals do you have for the new upcoming year?
I am in the process of scheduling print book for next year. We have decided to move slowly into print. It’s an exciting time for us J
Any big projects for 2012?
To continue with the above answer, we are hoping to do 12 print books next year. We already have 5 scheduled and are on the lookout for more J
What news would you like to share with your readers?
In the past few months, we have introduced a few new lines. Naughty Nursery Rhymes (for those stories that you grew up with as a child and can now find a new amusing twist on them), Clearwater Series (an open series that anyone can write about set in the fictitious town of Clearwater), and some new anthologies. Check out our website for full details.
