Author Tag

I was asked by Sherry Gammon to participate in author tag. Sherry is not only a good friend but an amazing writer. If you haven't read her Port Fare series you are missing out! Unlovable and Unbelievable are out and she's working hard on the third story. I keep bugging her because I honestly cannot wait! Unlovable is also being made into a movie. So cool!
Okay, I'll stop bragging about Sherry and answer the questions.

What am I working on?
I started a new story this week about a lady who acts in small-town theater productions and has a vicious stalker. I had the nightmare about this one over a year ago and am just forcing myself to write it. I love the main characters but the events that transpire have ripped at my heart and I have a hard time writing it without crying.

How does my work differ from others in its genre?
Hmm. I try to combine a lot of aspects into my writing: romance, suspense, family drama, and humor and my books usually have some kind of underlying theme that I don't plan and occurs to me halfway through the book. I love when the theme appears but it makes for a lot of re-writing sometimes!

Why do I write what I do?
I write about my nightmares and my daydreams. I know that means I'm a bit twisted, but I get these characters and stories in my head and I just feel like I have to share their stories. They're like dear friends to me who must have a chance to tell their story too.

How does your writing process work?
I have some kind of nightmare and I write it down then I think and develop the story as I go along. I write a scene then when I'm running or in the shower or sleeping the next scene or two will play out in my head. It's kind of a messy way to write. I get the bulk of the story down then I rewrite dozens of times to develop and polish it.

To continue with this game of tag I chose my amazing critique partner, Daniel Coleman. He wrote one of my favorite all-time women's fiction novels, Gifts and Consequences. Look for him to post December 9th on his blog - http://dcolemanbooks.com/blog
