Today I’m featuring one of the other authors at BWN, and her latest work Heart of the Hurricane! I also know romances are popular, and she’s been gracious enough to offer up a few copies (including one paperback I believe) as a giveaway. If this is your kind of work, just leave a comment below and you’ll be entered in a drawing. Without further ado, I give you May!
May’s books explore women’s self esteem, parenting struggles,personal growth, empowerment. and Mother Nature.
After years in social services and early childhood education, she has now carved out time to explore her new passion: writing.

1. What do you do to keep your spirits up through a bad review?
I allow any emotional reactions to pass through me, and then I carry on. You will not be in sync with everyone. Some people get you, some people do not. Everyone has an opinion. I do address any real nuggets of advice in reviews, such as grammatical or research errors, and try to fix those.
2. What has been your greatest inspiration for writing your stories?
The people I love inspire my characters. If you have touched my life, you are in my books.
As far as what inspires me to wite in general, that would be attributed to my need to stay as sane as possible. No writing time for May= insanity.
3. Are there any people you feel need a shout out for supporting you?
Ironically, two of my biggest supporters are non-readers: my mom and my Larry. Their lack of reading led me to the audio-book market. I figured if they would not read my books, I would make them listen.
4. Has self-publishing taught you any lessons that you feel will help you in life?
My one attempt to self-publish reinforced my need for a publisher. Due to my editing inadequicies, and need for deadlines, I have gone with established publishers for all of my books .
And last, What’s your favorite color?
