Recently I surfed by some blogs and saw that they were doing something called a blog hop. It is where several are tagged to answer questions about themselves and then they tag others. My good writing friend, Kristi Rose, who recently got her book picked up by Lyrical Press, tagged me–so here it goes.
What I am working on/writing:
At the moment, I am working on a contemporary romance entitled Hope for Tomorrow and as is my usual wont, that title has a double meaning. I have also been playing with a romantic fantasy, a YA, a historical romance, and short stories. One of my sci-fi shorts is going to be put in an anthology by Divertir Publishing. More details to follow.
How does my work/writing differ from others of its genre?
I like to think that my writing is unique because I wrote it. I believe that most readers can tell who an author “is” by the voice that they have in their books. I know for a fact that I have a definite southern voice. I have lived here all my life and I thread a flavor of it in all my work.
Why do I write what I do?
I write so many different things it is mainly because I want to experiment. I love the science feeling in sci fi, the otherworldliness in fantasy, and of course the relationships in romance and women’s fiction.
How does my writing process work?
Back when I was a new writer, working on the Shannon Wallace Mysteries, I was so dedicated to craft and the experience of writing that I wouldn’t even leave my writing office on the second floor of my home. It had to be there, in that office, in that chair, on that desk. But now? Um. No. I recently wrote out a whole scene on scrap paper while sitting at my job in between scanning documents. Yeah, I have NO process. It is very organic and happens when it happens.
Okay so, I have to tag some people here to get them in on the blog hop, but everyone I thought of had 1. already done it, or 2. didn’t have time, so I am linking to one of the people who had already done it:
