An escapist filled with wanderlust, writing is Haven’s responsible adult version of getting in the car and driving without aim. Reading and music are close seconds. She and her husband can often be found checking out their favorite bands locally or hundreds of miles away via road trips. Reading is something they don’t have in common, but he tolerates her dimly lit late-night habit.

Haven once made a living writing about trends in interior design but thoroughly enjoys that fact that people, unlike furniture, can fall in love. She especially loves when they fall desperately and into a forbidden kind of love. Haven also works as a graphic designer but considers Mom her most important title.

Hi Iris! Thank you so much for the question and for supporting my books! I'm glad you liked Paxton, I kind of love him myself.
Eek - my first question is kind of a hard one! I have had people tell me that before and if I had to come up with a reason I would say it's because of my writing process. I think, generally, writers are motivated by a plot. They have a complete story they have to tell. I've tried writing like that, but it's never worked out for me. My motivation is always my characters and their desperate love for each other. It usually begins with just one scene that I've probably dreamed where I can feel them and their emotions and it all grows from there. I don't know if that makes sense, but I always feel deeply connected to my characters and in-tune with their emotions and hopefully that shows through!(less)

I was actually just taking a break from the book I'm working on which is another YA MM romance that I'm really excited about and hope to finish before the end of summer. I'm not quite sure how to describe it yet (gah) but I'll keep you posted!(less)
