Tea x 1000!

Seeing the aurora borealis, preferably from Sweden or some other Scandinavian country.
4. Do you have pets?
I have a one year old Labrador puppy called Orion. He is the star of my Instagram. ❤
5. When I wake up every morning I… take the puppy to the dog park! He’s full of energy and I can’t get anything done until he’s had his exercise.
6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.
I have a Princess Leia doll from the original Star Wars. Mint condition, all her costume intact and in good shape. She’s like a Barbie but proportioned like a real woman. She was my favorite, but it’s all due to my mother’s saving tendencies that I have her in this incredible shape.

My mother taught me to sew, and I mostly put this to use making increasingly complex costumes for my kids. I made my own wedding dress as well.
8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?
Joy. I hope they feel the thrill of finding someone who loves them just as they are, who also sets their hearts on fire in turn. And the assurance that love is strong, and worth fighting for, nurturing, and celebrating.

Seduced by a Rogue: Greyson Jones, an agent of the crown, is the only one who thinks being jilted has made Serena more alluring.
