Where do you get your information or ideas for your books? Inspiration comes at all different times and through any situation.

I use their answers as feedback to create more realistic characters.

He’s a five-hundred-year-old, billionaire lycan. They become stranded on an island together. Just the two of them. Humans though are forbidden and she’s far to young anyway.
Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they? Read, write and repeat. Also, listen to people’s feedback. Critics are everywhere and can be used to improve writing. Don’t become offended just listen.

Forbidden love – Yes Please! A must-read!
Angela Gray captured my attention from the first page. One question kept going through my mind as I read the book – What happened to Jolie? Angela provides enough hints to that question to keep the pages turning.
Love the word choices and how distinct the voices are for both characters. I also find Jolie very easy to relate to and rooting for her to get better and hoping she will follow her dreams.
The friction at the start of the relationship has me sitting at the edge of my seat hoping to read faster to see how they end up. Love the instant attraction for the forbidden love but being in a motorcycle club, there are no rules so why not?
I enjoy the storyline and how it progresses at the right speed. Definitely a book worth reading over and over again.
