Tell us about a favorite character from a book.
Cimil from Mimi Jean Pamfiloff's Accidentally series is amazing! I have never laughed so hard, than I have at her.

What made you want to become an author and do you feel it was the right decision?
I needed something for myself and this was a great way to have that. I definitely think that it was the right decision, even if I think that it was a little crazy some days.

Advice they would give new authors?
Write what you want to, not what you think others want.

What is your writing process? For instance do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first? What are common traps for aspiring writers?
I write it all at once. I like for it to just flow and see where the story takes me. I feel like people become too obsessed with sticking to an outline and that it kills some of the joy of writing the story.

What is your writing Kryptonite?
I am a huge procrastinator. I can find a million things to do that have nothing to do with writing. I really have to sit down and actually write and even then I get distracted with random things.

Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
A little of both. I write how and what I want but do try to keep in mind that not everyone will like it. I do try to keep a good balance.

If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Start sooner! I wish I had done this years ago!

What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
Getting their speech patterns and mannerisms correct. Men have such a different way of thinking from women that it can be some what challenging to write something from a mans point of view.

How long on average does it take you to write a book?
I would love to say 2 months. But honestly probably like 3 or 4 months. Some days I'll write 5 to 6 thousand words and than not open up my document for a week. I really need to get a better schedule when it comes to writing. Or maybe go see a doctor about me possibly having ADD. Whichever.

Do you believe in writer’s block?
Absolutely! Some days words just flow and others I stare at the screen for hours wondering why I torture myself. 



Addicted to You
SAPD SWAT Series Book 2
by Nikki Mays
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Comedy


Michelle is my addiction. She’s sweetness and light wrapped up in a delicious package. Almost as delicious as the confections she makes. Until now, I’ve kept my distance to make sure my darkness doesn’t taint her. She’s better than a killer who sits behind a scope.

I watch her from afar. Getting dragged under her spell a little further with every sweet smile and mischievous grin. I know I’ll cave one day, give into the craving to be near her. Being in her presence is a feeling like no other, one I can’t seem to resist.


Unfortunately, I’m not the only one living under her influence. While I was watching her, someone else was watching too. But she belongs with me, no matter what anyone else wants.


Now I need to make sure she gives me my next fix of her, even if she’s too stubborn to admit she wants to. She’s my addiction, cure and redemption all rolled into one. Her soul calls out to my own. I’ll make sure she’s as addicted to me as I am to her. She’ll crave me - if it’s the last thing I do.










Surrender to You
SAPD SWAT Series Book 1


Mellie:



Mellie has been hypnotized by a pair of gorgeous green eyes, attached to a very yummy package for months now. Unfortunately for her, her brain goes on hiatus anytime Morris Jackson is around. Looking like a bobble head whenever he asks her anything isn't the best way to go about getting a man like him interested. Not like ruggedly handsome men go for quirky, accident prone introverts like her. Plus, even if she did have a snowballs chance in hell with him, him being her brothers SWAT teammate doesn't bode well for her. A girl can dream though!



Morris:

Those blue eyes sucker punched him the minute he looked into them. It felt like the ground had literally gone out from under him. Mellie is everything that he could ever want and everything that he shouldn't have. Even if he didn't know that she's too good for a guy like him, her brother would never be okay with it. He is over protective and proud of it. But at some point you have to say screw the consequences and go after what you know is meant to be yours.

Too bad someone wasn't happy for them when the found their way to one another. Someone will make sure they don't stay together by any means necessary. They'll even kill to get what they want.






Nikki Mays is a pen name that was created from her maiden name. She is a wife and mother, who lives in a small town in New Jersey. She has been with her husband for a decade and is surprised that he's still alive. She began writing as a creative outlet after becoming a stay at home mom. She decided that she needed something exclusively for herself, not just being mommy. She has two crazy boxers that love to keep that "Evil" mailman out of the yard. Besides writing and spending time with her little hellions, she enjoys cooking & baking. She has recently taken up gardening and made her loving husband plant her a mini fruit tree orchard, as well as a garden taking up half an acre. Nikki loves to be stalked by her readers and encourages all interaction.

  1. The book covers certainly convey a different tone for each story, whether that is true or not. The storylines sound like a lot of fun. Good luck with the series.
