But Crissy had something better. She spent each night reading a new chapter from her father’s manuscript. Admittedly, the manuscripts went unpublished. Nonetheless, the author cherishes the experience because it encouraged her to write.
Crissy filled many spiral notebooks with stories during her teenage years. She would share them with her friends and family. They occasionally indulged the author by acting out the stories, most of which featured vampires and werewolves.
She keeps those spiral notebooks because they remind her how far she has come. Crissy remembers a time when her publishing dreams seemed impossible. She thinks she got lucky when she landed a contract with Total-E-Bound in 2008. She doesn’t take her success for granted.
The author works hard to keep her readers entertained. She favors the paranormal genre because the field has endless possibilities. The worlds she creates can take any shape she chooses. Crissy doesn’t have to restrict her imagination.
She does most of her writing in her computer room. She has a specific area in the room that houses her laptop, papers, bulletin boards, and white-erase boards. The area connects to her husband’s section.
You can find him watching TV, working on his computer, or napping while his wife polishes her manuscripts. Their daughter is never far. She can join them with her laptop if she chooses. The room has giant pillows and blankets that accommodate the couple’s dogs.
All in all, she couldn’t ask for a more welcoming writing space. Crissy is grateful for the support her family offers. As an accounting manager, she works 45 hours a week, which means her weekends are precious. She uses those two days to do as much writing as possible.
Her family understands the duties she must juggle. They are kind enough to stay away when she needs peace and quiet and to protect her from unnecessary distractions. This allows the author to disappear into her characters.
Despite their paranormal origins, Crissy tries to make her protagonists as relatable as possible. People flock to her books because they understand the struggles her shifters face.
Crissy is not afraid to admit that she’s attracted to confident men that know what they want and won’t hesitate to pursue it. This sensibility informs the dominant werewolves and master vampires readers find in her stories.
There’s a reason why Crissy encourages aspiring authors to write for themselves. She has abandoned manuscripts in the past after realizing that she was merely writing what other people expected her to write.
These days, the author is passionate about every book she tackles. She knows that any story that fails to pique her interest will also induce boredom in her readers. Therefore, she will only explore ideas and characters that make her happy.

Gage was an alpha. He was obligated to protect every member of his pack. And far as he was concerned, that included Marissa. When an old lover tried to reclaim her, Gage lept into action, determined to defend Marissa from the demons of her past.
Pack Enforcer: Emily and Cain were not meant to be, or so Emily thought. Her feelings for the Pack’s enforcer were hardly a secret. Unfortunately, Cain had already denied her.
