NEW PRIZES – Q&A Giveaway

NEW PRIZES – Q&A Giveaway

Here are the giveaway winners:



Now that the holidays are over, I feel like I have a little more breathing room. Does anyone else feel that way? I promised to do a giveaway awhile back, exchanging fan questions for a chance to win various prizes.

To submit your questions, comment on this post or comment on my Facebook page. If you already submitted a question on my page, I’m going to go ahead and count it as an entry. You’ll get one entry for participating, but just one. So a person who asks 10 questions will get one entry and a person who asks one question will get one entry.

I’ll take questions through SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5th.*  I will post winners on Monday, February 6th, and put together a video tackling the questions you submit – though I reserve the right to reschedule the video portion if I am having a bad hair day.


Now for the good part – prizes!

Nautical journal

Faux leather nautical journal – actually, I might keep this for myself

Nautical prints

Nautical prints (note – they are prints and are not framed. But can you imagine how cool they’d look with a rough, driftwood type frame?)

$15 at

$15 to spend at however you want – but it will probably be on books, right?




And a slight modification to the original contest – you get an entry for each question you submit instead of one per person!!! Let’s extend this through the weekend, too – contest will close at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, February 4.

Thanks for the questions that have already been submitted. I’m excited to see more – bring them on!

About the Author


  1. Heidi jordin says

    After the series ends, do the characters stop living? Or do they continue to live in your head, for you to check in on any time you want?


  2. Tisa says

    Do any of your characters get inspired by people you know, if so which character and who?


  3. Kristen Gotch says

    You’ve been working on these books for so many years, do you know yet what your next book will be about? Are you excited to write the next book or nervous to leave these characters behind?


  4. Sheridan Sharp says

    Tessa has grown much since that first chapter of the tempest’s after math. Do you see yourself in the daring, loyal person that she has become?


  5. Melissa says

    I have always been curious about how you write. Do you imagine the plot and then develop the characters or create characters and put them into a situation and see where they end up?


  6. Jenn Hurdsman says

    Did you write a scene differently and then had to go back and change it because a character wanted it to be different? How did this change effect the outcome of that character?


  7. Victoria Fahy says

    Is Nicholas mirrored after anyone you knew personally, or is his character completely fiction?


  8. Kelly Owoseni says

    Who is your favorite character in the series and why?


  9. Brit says

    I’m literally drooling over that paper white cover. Oh my goodness.

    Who inspired your characters for Nicholas and Emilio?

    Did your ending evolve throughout the writing process or did your original ending stay the same?


  10. Victoria Fahy says

    What inspired your love for the sea? Any favorite memories?


  11. Peggy Crabtree says

    Where and when can I buy Rebel Tide..haven’t been able to find it!!!
