Can you tell us a  little bit about your series, If Only and my favorite, The Illumination Paradox?

I can do better than that! I'll include a couple of links here to interviews where I answered questions about both! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7onsBvKfYs  & https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=Gyp6RThupUI) I will say this much, If Only is about a love sick couple, who are separated first by an argument, and then by fate, and their struggle to get back together, despite medical odds. I'm hearing from readers that it puts them in the mind of Gayle Forman's IF I STAY, which is a huge compliment!
Lumière is about a girl with a secret. A secret so devastatingly big it could cost her her life. She must keep the secret at all costs, or face persecution from the public. After a tragic event, sees her mother executed for a crime she did not commit, the girl finds herself alone and on the run from the authorities, for something that is not her fault. All th…

Midnight Screams. It was a scary story I wrote when I was maybe 9.

What is your work schedule like when you’re writing? Ideally (lol), when I’m working on a book, I write for four to five hours in the morning when my mind is most awake. Around 11:30 I break to make lunch and eat and spend the early afternoon either writing more or answering email and messages online. I do more of this a couple hours before bed. I try to write seven days a week.

Where do you find inspiration? I’m a very visual person. …

I'm not a BeachBody coach. I don't sell any of these programs, I don't sell Shakeology. I'm just like you. I have a free account with BeachBody which assigned me a coach, and I belong to two Facebook Groups to talk about my weight loss process and the frustration that occurs when I sabotage myself. 
If you would like to get any of these programs, you can buy them through Amazon, or BeachBody. :) 


I finished the PiYo program on Sunday October 25th. My total weight loss was 12 lbs, and 11 inches overall. I really love this program and recommend it to everyone who wants to start exercising or people who need more flexibility. I was 230lbs when I started the program and ended up at 218lbs.

One important thing that I like about the program is that even though there is a modifier, and you can follow Michelle, it's not that hard to follow Chalene. yes, some days you might need to use the chair, follow the modifier, etc. Some days you might feel like your legs ar…

Author Interview, Monica B. Wagner

When did you decide to pursue a career as a writer? ​ I've always liked to write, but I realized it was more serious than I'd thought ten years ago, when I read about a writing contest on a newspaper and decided to give it a try. I didn't win though--but I realized I really wanted to keep ​trying!
Do you remember the title of the first story you wrote? ​ Oh yes! I was like eight years old when I wrote that one--it was titled THE GIRL WHO CAME FROM HEAVEN. And it had funny drawings all over. What is your work schedule like when you’re writing? ​Usually, I write first thing in the morning. Later in the day, I'm not that productive. I wake up at 6:30 a.m., prepare breakfast so the kids can go to school, and then at 7:30 I start writing till noon-ish.  Where do you find inspiration? ​  With my head under my pillow. Really! It works that way for me. Hubby's like, are you sleeping? And I'm like, nah, I'm working. :)
What have you learned about publishing that you …
