Thanks so much for having me here today!
What do you do when writer's block hits?
Pound my head against the wall, wail, and gnash my teeth in frustration.
But once my skull stops pounding from that… It depends on how long it lasts. I start by stepping away from the page. Trying to imagine the scene in my head while I’m nowhere near the computer. If I can get a good mental image of what’s going to happen, I can usually go write it all out. If that doesn’t work, I’ll make some brief notes about what I want to happen there, and then move on to the next scene.
When I’m done with a first draft, it’s pretty typical for about 1/4 of my manuscript to be notes that say things like “put something exciting/sexy/compelling here later”
What reality show would you love to be on? Why?
Any one of them that will come in and remake my house with some kind of grand, unlimited budget, including new appliances and all the bells and whistles.
Which of your characters would you most like to meet IRL? Why?
The hero, Zane, definitely. First of all, I’ll be superficial and say, he’s gorgeous. But he’s also loyal, and intelligent. The kind of guy who keeps his word, means his friendship, and can talk about anything and everything for hours on end.
And possibly the only person ever (real or fictional) who’s worse at billiards than I am.
What four literary characters would you most like to have over for dinner?
1. The dormouse, from Alice in Wonderland – because I think there’s more inside that fluffy head than he’s letting on, and I’d bet it’s not all insanity.
2. The narrator (John/Jonah) from Cat’s Cradle—intelligent, scary insightful, and curious
3. Mark Twain, from a Tramp Abroad. I say character, because so much of the book is fictionalized. And just dry, and sarcastic, and humorous.
4. Justin March from the Age of X series by Richelle Mead (I couldn’t go all classical… got to have a little modern in here somewhere :)
Zane’s granddad raised him with the belief that people who bring joy to the world should be protected at all costs. For Zane, his best friend Riley is one of those people, and he definitely doesn't mind when making her happy involves helping her pursue her creative dream and some sport sex with a hint of kink. They can have fun, and he can keep her from falling for the next idiot who comes along while she searches for her Prince Charming.
Regardless of her resolution, as things heat up between them, Riley finds herself falling again. She needs to decide if she’s in love with the idea of being in love, or if—despite Zane’s insistence that she deserves someone better—what she feels for him is the real thing. If she can’t learn to trust her heart and convince Zane he’s exactly what she needs, it will obliterate a lifelong friendship.
