DP: What did you enjoy most about working with Dorrance Publishing?

CN: The publishers were very forthcoming so I knew what to expect.

DP: Five favorite books of all time?

CN: This is a hard question as I love to read. I love Nora Roberts, especially the series about the Quinn brothers. I am also a huge Sherrilyn Kenyon fan and love all the Dark Hunter novels.

DP: One sentence of advice for other writers:

CN: Never give up!
