I was born in Spain and grew up mostly in Europe. My father was in the USAF, which I just love. He was a broadcast journalist in the USAF!

I went to the University of Florida- Go Gators! Hence my book GATOR GIRLS (GO AND GET AT AMAZON BOOKS)

I work as a Financial Analyst and write on the side, but I like to believe it is the other way around because I am always writing stories in my head all day long.

I love my life and think that each day I am blessed more and more.

I do have inner demons that I unleash inside of my books.

I want to live a Norman Rockefeller type of life in Mayberry and watch re-runs of Donna Reed and I Love Lucy all day.

I love working because it gives me creativity and balance.

Finance is one of the most difficult jobs in t

Great question Desiree.

I have a great sense of humor in that I can take what people say about me and laugh.

Am I funny? I can be and I can definitely give one liners.

In my books, I try to be funny, but I don't know if it always comes across the way that I want it to, but in book six, in particular, I had the best time writing the conversations with Stephen and Teddy.

If you've read the books then you will know the characters, but just in case you haven't... Teddy is the h's (Kelsey) brother, and he and HRH Prince Stephen are good friends. So, when Stephen goes to Teddy for advice, Teddy pulls no punches. He is both protective of his sister and good friend to Stephen that tell's it like it is, all wrapped into one crazy brother.

Just thinking about Teddy makes me laugh. He is a character I love, love, love!

So, what I do is incorporate the funny into character interactions in my books. That is my answer on how to add humor.

I really base my funny meter on my husband. 1st off he hates my books because they are not his genre. He is a history buff and only wants to read history, or there needs to be killing every second and not sex and feelings every second. So, if he reads a part and I hear him laughing, I am like, what did I say? If he sends me a message where I've made him laugh, I believe it is golden part of my book because I've hooked him and he doesn't think I'm funny at all, or at least he said he didn't until he read my books and now I'm getting better.

My tips on adding humor is to try not to be funny. It has to come through a natural order of things. It is a conversation that gets too serious and you kind of need to reign things in so you make it funny, give it a little laugh.

When I think of the funniest moments in my book, they all happened in book 6. I am sure there is funny in the other ones, but book 6 was just so crazy that I had to make it comical to keep the reader from wanting to chuck their kindles.

Plus, I cheated and used the Hero POV. He is just funnier than Kelsey. He doesn't have to take things too serious. He is a Prince, the world is his oyster. Women will do anything to have him, men will do anything to be him. He has to laugh and be funny.

If you read them, thank you for reading. If not, I hope that you read them and tell me what you find funny, but if you don't choose to read them, then I hope that you will come back and suggest some funny reads for me. I love to read!!!

I appreciate your question and I hope that I answered you some where in those millions of words.

P.S. Is book 7 funny? YES! But this is one crazy trip to the end.

Thanks, again! (less)

I am not sure yet, if lines were crossed. I need this to sink in. When I was younger, I wouldn't have been able to read this, and now it was still a bit taboo, but oh so steamy, hot; and dare I say, loving.
