Meet the UNDERTOW cast – Ana Lane

Every character in UNDERTOW has their own back story – not just little details, but HUGE stories. I wrote it that way so that readers would connect with multiple characters and not just Eila and Raef. As book review blog Twin Spin writes, “Although there was one main character in Eila, there was a great and […]

Meet the UNDERTOW cast – Christian Raines

In searching for faces to represent UNDERTOW, there were a couple of characters that I didn’t really think I would even try to find. For one, I knew no one who could fit the bill for either Christian Raines or Rilin West. Secondly, they were “big reveal” characters, therefore I was unsure if I could […]

Meet the Undertow Cast – Nikki Shea

When I wrote the character known as Nikki Shea, I never wanted her to be the typical mean girl. Most people who read the novel though, automatically assumed she was a stick-thin blonde. But in my head? In my head she was Jessica Rabbit crossed with Scarlett O’Hara. She was this curvaceous brunette who knew […]

Meet the Undertow Cast – Kian O’Reilly

I honestly didn’t think I was going to find someone to represent Kian O’Reilly. In fact, I had started searching through RF photos (random model shots) in an attempt to find the character.  I always used young Friday Night Lights actor, Taylor Kitsch, as my baseline when writing for Kian. And I was sure there […]

Meet the Undertow Cast – Raef Paris

When I was searching for faces of the UNDERTOW characters, I found it exceedingly difficult to match a real face to a fictional character. A character who had lived in my head for YEARS. Raef O’Reilly (Paris) was a HUGE player in UNDERTOW. He is an immortal killer who decides to protect Eila against his […]

Meet The UNDERTOW Cast – Eila Walker

When I was writing UNDERTOW, I had a huge desire to find local Cape Cod kids to be the models for the story. Finding them, however, wasn’t so easy. But when Kim Rocha, a Cotuit resident and UNDERTOW Beta reader, said she believed “Eila Walker” was the girl who lived next to her, I had […]

Digital Campfires and Tweeted S’mores

I suspect camping is quite different now-a-days then it was even five years ago. Granted, I have only been REALLY camping for the past two years (anti-roughing it with my Jayco X20E trailer), but when we go, our electronic devices and laptops come with us. Is such techno-heavy camping a good thing? Dare I say […]

Do you Rock when you Write?

I once posed the question about music and the art of writing to a bunch of other scribes on Agent Query Connect (a great site with similar crazy souls like myself). Their answers were near unanimous: music is our muse. When I began writing more than fifteen years ago, I listened to a variety of […]

Defining a Well-Lived Life

In April, my grandfather, an Iwo Jima Marine and truly gentle soul, died.  I was asked by the family to write his obituary and when I was done I realized, without doubt, that his was the definition of a well-lived life.  It was a cathartic writing experience for me and led me to realize that […]

When did Wicked become Uncool??

“A man’s character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation.” Mark Twain   Mark Twain, brilliant dude that he was, nailed it. Some words just take on a life of their own. But what happens when they are stored away, sudden dinosaurs in our functional lexicon? Do we lose a piece of […]
