These are some of the most frequently asked questions about me and my work:

Updated September 18, 2019

How do you pronounce your name?

This question comes up a lot. It rhymes with starry.

What was your inspiration for Flink?

MayFruitaWalk2Let me introduce you to Gunther, my three-year-old Saint Bernard. A few of his interests include food, sleeping in the sunshine, and ignoring basic commands. He dislikes moving water, cold weather, and chew bones that come in contact with the ground. Also, when he was a puppy, he hiccupped every time something gave him a fright. Thankfully, Gunther is not an elemental Saint Bernard, so he never burned down our house.

Will there be any more Eldentimber books?

I loved Eldentimber. They were my first books, and they’ll always have a special place in my heart. But the series is complete. Down the road, I might do something short for Lionel. Maybe. MAYBE.

Do you write under any other pen names?

Yep, I sure do. I write New Adult Urban Fantasy as Shannon Lynn Cook. Learn more in this post: New Pen Name – New Urban Fantasy Series!

How do you find time to write?

I have a detailed response in this post: Writing Despite the Distractions 

Do you do blog interviews?

Sure, I’d love to! Feel free to contact me.

How often is your online shop open, and why do you close it?

Quick background for those of you who don’t know: I sell signed paperbacks, book-themed mystery boxes, and other assorted book goodies in my online shop. The reason I don’t keep it open all the time is because it requires a lot of time and attention. I want every single order to be special, and because of that, I craft many of the items in the mystery boxes and personalize each book. I don’t throw these things together. I carefully plan and plot, and I love it. But because so much goes into the orders, from the items to the packaging, I can only work on them when I have a book in editing.

If you’d like to be notified next time the shop is open, sign up for my newsletter or follow me on Instagram.

  1. I noticed you brought Lionel back for the end of Elodie of the Sea, and he has a woman he speaks to. But I don’t see any listed novels or novelettes or anything that tells his story. Will you ever tell Lionel’s story and finish the stories of the main competitors from Pippa’s tournament?


  2. I just finished the Silver and Orchids series and must say, it’s one of my favorite series of all time. I miss it already! Greybrow Serpant was absolutely transporting. Would you ever consider adding to the series, and/or telling Sebastian’s story? I wondered what would happen to him and Adeline, and of course the Greybrows in the future.


    1. I’m so glad to hear you liked it! I’m actually working on a companion novel to the Silver & Orchids books that takes place about ten years after Lily of the Desert.

      I also plan to do a Silver & Orchids spin-off series in the future, though I’m not exactly sure when that will release.

      Thank you for stopping by! (And sorry it took me so long to respond–I just saw your comment.)
