Writing Tips from the Trenches

Writing Tips from the Trenches Recently, I was asked how I write my characters and what is the trick I use that makes them “live beyond the book.” Honestly, I kinda got stumped when the question was asked of me. At first I wanted to blurt out, “Uh, I’ve no clue” and to be fair, […]

Last Light – Updates (stop screaming)

Dear Reader, Let’s face it . . . it’s been a year, almost exactly, since True North came out and you’re getting anxious. “Where’s Last Light?” you demand. “What has Conway been doing for a WHOLE year if she’s not strapped to her desk, inhaling caffeine?” Well, truth be told, 2016 was a bit of […]

#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 […]

Writer Woe Number 428 (or something like that): Too Many Blasted Characters

First of all, I know what you’re going to say. You’re going to say that the sheer volume of characters in my novels is my own stupid fault. That I was a doofus and basically unleashed the population of a small movie theater (on a Harry Potter premier night) into my imagination and said, “Sure […]

Saying Farewell

Someone once said that, to say goodbye to a character that has been part of you for years, is like bidding farewell to a piece of you. As I write the last book in Eila’s story, I know it’s true. I have no doubt that when I’m done with the final book in the UNDERTOW […]

Writing Real Characters

So, lately I’ve not been here, on my blog, because I am trying to get the final edits to CRUEL SUMMER done, so you can get your hot little hands on Kian, Ana, and MJ on March 16th, 2015 at the Girl Power Author Panel (deets to come). But I needed to squeeze in some […]

Launch Party prep and other moments of insanity

I have totally ignored my blog, but I swear it was for many good reasons! Well . . . most of the time. That whole incident when I stole my daughter’s jumbo bag of Mega M&Ms and inhaled the whole thing may not have been wise, but I was writing for Kian at the time. I […]

The Barnstable Patriot and Undertow.

Friday could have sucked. It could have sucked because I was dumb enough to blurt out, “SURE I’ll drive the band to Rhode Island,” when I really needed to grind through STORMFRONT. It could have sucked because the dog barfed on my new rug, but only after I realized she demolished my gloves. It could […]
