Why do I Write in Reverse?

Not long ago I was on the phone with another author friend while hashing out a story idea I had. When I was done, she replied, “Dude – you’re incapable of writing a straight contemporary story.” Word. The truth is, she’s right. I mean, I COULD do it, but at some point there would be a sizable, […]

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 […]

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 […]
