Growing up, I LOVED scary movies. My favorites were the Creature Features. Though the monsters were the ‘bad guys,’ I always felt an affinity for their plight – alone, isolated, different and unloved. They just couldn’t get a break. It wasn’t until I saw the movie Ladyhawke with Rutger Hauer and Michelle Pfeifer, where lovers cursed to become a hawk and a wolf, one at night and one during the day could never be together in their human forms except for that brief moment in-between, that I realized that these tragic tales could also be romances. A keen creative interest in all things Shifter was born.

It’s always a special privilege to hype the work of one of your book buddies, in this case, my critique partner, Dana Corbit. The talented members of my band of merry critiquers come from all areas of the romance spectrum and beyond, often providing my initiation into a particular genre. Dana’s warm and heart-felt romances were my introduction to the inspirational market where I found it easy to embrace the characters in her Love Inspired series books (my favorite - the trouble-making Charity!). Many a plot was born during our brainstorming sessions and I’m especially proud to welcome FINALLY A MOTHER because today is Special Delivery Release Day!

I’m not much for playing games unless they involve cards on my computer. But that said, a girl DOES like to have fun. And some game play is informative fun for a good cause, in this case, a chance to promote one’s craft and one’s friends. The Writing Process Blog Hop is passed from writer to writer like a chain letter (oh, don’t get me started on those!) only no bad luck will befall you if you don’t respond within the allotted time. It’s all good. Maris Soule “tagged” me in her blog last week, passing me the baton for today’s post on four questions regarding how we writer’s write. In turn, my job is to pass this task on to three more authors who will post next week, and so on, and so on.
