2. What is your writing process? (A special place or how you outline, or do you just jump into it. Or, what you need before you sit down to write: coffee, tea, cookies)
3. Do you have a favorite book that you’ve written, or a favorite character that sticks with you?
This is tricky. When I’m writing a character, that character is my favorite. The same goes for the book. I think I like this book best, but when I write the next book, I may like that book best. Amaya is a feisty, slightly troubled character who is unhappy about being swept up in a war with aliens. She’s fun to write.

Some hearts are fixer-uppers, hers is a total flip.
For Danni Lowry, going home for her aunt’s funeral means facing reality, and that’s not something she’s eager to do. Since leaving North Carolina, she’s lost her money, her husband, and all hope for happiness.
She goes to the memorial, but regret hits her on arrival. She is about to leave when she bumps into Fisher, her childhood friend and one-time sweetheart. For him, she will stay for the memorial that challenges her grief… and her sanity. During the service, Danni swears she sees her aunt—the dead one—bouncing about, making fun and cracking jokes.
Certain she’s lost her mind, Danni tries again to go, but Aunt Max won’t allow it. She is a reminder that Danni has obligations. There is the hotel. It is now Danni’s, and a sensible person would flip it before selling it. There is young Darby, the orphaned teen her aunt was adopting. Danni couldn’t leave the child homeless. And finally, there is Fisher— loyal, dependable, heart-skippingly-handsome Fisher. The guy she didn’t realize she missed until he was gone.
Fisher offers to help her with the renovations hoping she’ll stay long enough for him to convince her they are meant to be together. Danni agrees to the help and to the friendship, but nothing more. She will not lose Fisher to love. Not again. It’s better to stay friends. Friends don’t break up like lovers do.

Amaya, a young woman who feels lost after the upheaval of loss and divorce, finds comfort in matinee movies and new friends. When the movie theater is hit by disaster and turns out not to be a movie theater at all, Amaya's world spins upside down. Aliens are real. Space ships don't always look like space ships. Accepting someone's apology could be the start of an intergalactic incident. But most troubling of all? Amaya finds out there's more to her past than even she knows.
Liftoff is an action-packed science fiction novella for teen/YA book lovers who enjoy space battles, fistfights, tropes, alien life forms, and a hint of clean romance.
Note from the author: In all honesty, I wrote this book during the first full month of stay-at-home orders in April 2020. I leaned into the tropes on purpose, for fun, as a way of escape from the serious subjects of life in 2020. I thought of it as my "popcorn book", a novella meant for those who love fun, action-packed, lighthearted, "popcorn" movies. I hope readers have as much fun reading it as I had writing it.
