I live in a place where I allow my imagination to rule me. I've lived most all of my life wondering ‘What If?' Things just sort of go from there.
It's funny but when a writer says they get their ideas from everywhere, they're telling you the truth. I can be anywhere in public and out of nowhere an idea hits me, just by watching the people. I can sit and come up with a story about his/her life right there. I can imagine what he or she is doing there at that moment and the next second I'm jotting down the plot and ignoring (not on purpose) the people I'm with. Used to be when I took the pad of paper out with a pen they kept talking and asking me questions, now they know that I'm lost in my own world, at least until I look up at them with a grin.
Inspiration is defined as Stimulation of the mind or emotions to a high level of feeling or activity. And let me tell you, that my mind is always in overdrive. I love to create a story and get lost in its hold, in my characters' lives. I get going on it and let me tell you, I get so caught up in it that it's what I'm thinking of when I go to bed and it's what I'm thinking of when I open my eyes. Honestly, someone needs to invent a way for me to write while in the shower. I don't know how to not think about the story I'm working with for just a day. I can't just take a day off, because really it feels as if I'll just explode if I can't get it out. Basically once I'm working with an idea, I stay lost until that idea is down and in the form of a manuscript, and ready to be read. I am so blessed to have been given a Muse; she keeps me going even when I don't think I can go anymore.
My passion is writing and reading and listening to music. I don't consider myself a full on romance writer. I like to step over that line. So, if anything that I write touches you in any way, and it leaves you thinking, then I can say I've done my job.
I'm an avid reader/reviewer. I love jigsaw puzzles, hiking to waterfalls, walks with my sweet pet, Abby and spending time with my loved ones. I have a blog for my Lethal Obsession characters.
