ABOUT MY WRITING
I've written for years on end. I wrote my first books in the sixth grade, one of which was about finding luck...glass half-full don't you know! Novel writing is new to me and a delicious addiction. I can be found writing 12 hours a day...easily, happily. All of which ends with a stiff cocktail. I'm addicted to reading when not writing. I can't flip a pancake without my kindle in hand. I've been an avid reader my whole life, so this writing thing (which mind you is only part of what I do for a living) makes sense and is a huge part of my DNA. And the bonus is, it bodes well for one's marriage (wink, wink).
I live with my characters day and night. Most of the time I feel like a voyeur in their lives, which magically seem to unfold right in front of me. They're in my dreams and on my brain non-stop. I'll spend weeks editing and revising one book with the next plot swimming through my head and being scribbled onto endless reams of paper. When I write I feel everything - and I do mean EVERYTHING - about them. I'm turned on by them. I laugh at and with them. I get pissed at them. I bitch at them. I cry if something awful is happening to them. My heart speeds up when they fight. I get goose bumps because of them. And holy-smokin'-Jesus-take-the-wheel, I'm wildly thrilled when they have great make up sex.
I'll admit it sometimes feels a little like I'm playing God when I write (either that or a puppeteer). I love writing about strong characters that have flaws and imperfections to deal with, work on or resolve. My characters live well, because they can and it's way more fun to fantasize about them in this way. Delicious sex is a part of every book, as is wit, zip, and boatloads of sarcasm. I don't do vanilla, nor do I like to read it. I adore twists, turns and funky plot oddities that make life the crazy thing that it really is. I love putting my characters in awkward situations that allow for interesting, heated and often sexy dialogue to play out. And, while I've written several books in other genres under a different name, this is by far the most fun a girl could have without breaking the law (even though orange is my color).
