#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 10 Amwriting

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 10 #Amwriting #Amrevising Truth: I’m always writing, even though sometimes it’s in my head. Right now, however, I am focused on Last Light. Though I am itching to try my hand at some new characters and worlds, I adore my Undertow crew and want to send them out in wild style with […]

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 9 – Where I Write

#IGAuthorLifeJan – DAY 9 Where I Write Where I write is on the 3rd floor of my home on Cape Cod. From the windows, I can see Cape Cod Bay all the way out to Provincetown. It is quite beautiful and I’m blessed to have such a view. But I also write in front of my […]

#IGAuthorLifeJan Day 2 – Goals

So, today for the #IGAuthorLifeJan the theme is “Goals.” This is also known as “Lies formerly known as goals before life got in the way,” but hey . . . wadda I know, right? So, if I could shoot for the moon, then my goals would be to wrap Last Light up in March and have […]

#IGAuthorLifeJan Day 1 – Happy New Year

Happy New Year! So, 2016 was, well, interesting. Okay, more like one long session of torture at the base of Mordor, especially if you had to survive the US election with your brain cells intact. I didn’t get much writing done in 2016, but after a health issue (and the enormous selflessness of so many […]

Brain Melt

“Puke and rally, puppy dog. We’re needed on the rooftop.” – Kian, Last Light When I first started writing the Undertow series, I had no clue what the characters would do for people. What their lives and their story would mean to people. And honestly, I had no clue the impact that the fictional world and […]

Inside the Concepts of a Killer Nightclub

They say news comes in two forms: Good and Bad. The Good: I’m working on Last Light. The Bad: It’s gonna be huge and my fingers are bleeding. Sometimes I’m stalled in my writing by simply needing to come out of the story to do research so I can feel my way through a setting […]

Character Craft and Writing in Reverse

I don’t plot characters. There – I admit it. I totally roll on gut instinct when I write for my cast. That said, I could never actually write them at all if I didn’t know two things: Who they were born as (personality, emotion, natural abilities, etc). How they evolved as a result of their […]

In Defense of Insta-Love

I do three things when I’m trolling the aisles of heaven (re: bookstore), searching for a few new books to burn my paycheck on: Seek out a kick-ass cover. Read the back jacket. Read the first page . . . and maybe the Goodreads reviews. Let me tell ya – I’ve learned one thing about Goodreads […]
