BBB: What inspired you to become a writer?
AS: I just loved reading. Eventually, that made me want to write a book that I would like to read.
AS: I read an article about the shocking number of abortions performed in our state every year.
BBB: Tell us about your main character Liz?
AS: Liz is just an average girl who falls deeply in love with a boy in college. He falls for her, too, but then his past intervenes, or maybe I should say, life intervenes, and they have to go their separate ways. After that, the fairytale comes to an end and they have to make some really hard choices. I wanted to show that what happened to them happens to someone, somewhere, every day of the year.
BBB: What do you think readers will remember most about All for Love?
AS: I hope readers will be moved in some way. I think they will remember the joy and the sadness of this particular love story.
AS: I've written seven. I've had three published, with the fourth one, Stutter Creek, due to be released from 5 Prince Publishing, on June 1st. It is a romantic suspense story in which the main character, Beth, goes in search of an old flame and finds a serial killer instead. I'm also re-releasing my Phantom series for Middle Graders. The first two books, The Phantom Pilot and The Phantom Student, were previously published by Cool Well Press. They should be available again before too long, only the titles will change slightly to Stevie-girl and the Phantom Pilot, and Stevie-girl and the Phantom Student. I will also release the third one in the series, Stevie-girl and the Phantom of Crybaby Bridge.
BBB: Are you currently working on another book?
AS: Yes, I'm currently writing a horror novel. I've always wanted to try one since Poe was one of my first loves. Actually, I suppose you could say all of my books have an element of horror in them, although it is usually the realistic wish-we-could-sweep-this-under-the-rug type horror. Anyway, wish me luck. I think this is the hardest genre of all!
