I usually write in the morning for anywhere from 2-4 hours. But that time includes more than writing a story because there's lots more to being a writer than writing.

Now Meet Maddie Cotton from All I Want For Christmas Is Johnny Rocker Dead
Tell us your name and a little bit about yourself
My name is Maddie Cotton. I've been a bodyguard for several years but it's time for a change. The job doesn't leave much time for a personal life which was a good thing while I've been healing from the loss of my family.
Where do you live, and why do you choose to live there?
I live in California. I was born here so I guess that's why I still live here.
What is a quirk of your personality that people don't know?
Some people say I'm a control freak. I don't think I am. I just like things the way I like them.
What obstacles did you overcome in order to reach your happily-ever-after?
My parents and my sister died in a car accident when I was only a teenager. As you can imagine that was a horrible time in my life. I had to be tough to get through it–maybe a little too tough.
Tell us about your knight in shining armour. What makes him so special?
Zeb, better known as Johnny Rocker, is quite the character. But he's so open to God and what God wants for him, it makes me want to be more like him.
The first time you saw your special person, what did you think? Was it love at first sight or did he have to grow on you?
I thought he was a prima donna rock star and wasn't impressed with him–at all! But the more I got to know him, the more I liked him.
