my boyfriend2 (197x300) (2)Tell us about your book: My Boyfriend the Squire is a young adult fiction fantasy book with some romance.  It is about a girl who travels back in time to the Middle Ages to  rescue a princess. There she meets a squire who helps her in her quest.  After freeing a magical spell that was cast upon Countess Hildegarde, Lucinda is able to go back to the present day where she meets her brother’s friend who looks like the squire.

Did you always know you wanted to be a writer? From an early age, I loved writing stories.  I published my first poem when I was a teenager.  I won editor of the school newspaper when I was in second grade for a paper I wrote.

My photoWho is your favorite character in your book, and why? Lucinda is the main character and she is my favorite.  I can picture myself as her searching for love and enjoying the adventures of the story.  Who wouldn’t want to go back in time and become royalty?

Are any elements of your book autobiographical or inspired by elements of your life? No my other book: Southern Adventures is about me.  This one was written because I love to read stories about the middle ages, kings, knights and castles.

What’s your favorite scene or location from My Boyfriend the Squire, and why? The castle Lyonesse is my favorite scene. Who wouldn’t want to fall asleep and end up in a beautiful castle built for royalty.
