Describe yourself in three words:

Tell us a little about your latest release:
Swept to Sea
Lady Eden Trenton never wanted to leave her privileged existence in London—until her father invites a dangerous suitor into her life. Left with few options, Eden devises the best reprieve she can: escape. Chasing freedom, she stows away aboard a pirate ship, praying she will gain her independence in the colonies before she is discovered by the nefarious crew.
Captain Caspian Archer has spent the last five years hardening his heart and searching to exact revenge for the event that tore his life to shreds. When he catches word that his enemy is residing in Jamaica, Caspian steers his ship toward the colonies in all haste. His plans soon change, however, when he discovers the young beauty hiding in his ship’s hold.
Cut from the only lives they have known, Caspian and Eden are pulled together as each pursues a fresh hope upon the sea.
What is your earliest memory?
Hmmm...I actually have a lot of very early memories. They are all kind of fuzzy and blended together. One of my earlier memories is seeing the movie Tarzan in the movie theatre. I then called movie theatres "Tarzan Stores."
What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?
There have been many wonderful moments, but the most recent one has been seeing Swept to Sea published! This was my biggest dream and I am so lucky to have seen it happen at the age of 16.
What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?
Physics and College Algebra homework. LOL I may be taking a different spin on this question, but those two are ridiculously difficult!
What have you learned in life so far?
I have learned that no matter what  gets in my way, I should persevere to achieve my dreams and not let anything get in my way. I should be comfortable with myself and care less about other people's opinions.
Everyone’s favourite question: if you could invite five people for dinner, who would it be?
Hmmmm this is a hard one! Im going to go for some more traditional figures.
1. Nikkola Tesla.
2. Audrey Hepburn.
3. Harry S. Truman.
4. William Shakespeare
5. Charlie Chaplin.
