My Writing Process



A big thanks to my talented best friend, Editor & Author Shonell Bacon for inviting me to take part in the “My Writing Process” Blog Tour!  She’s a big part of my writing endeavors, keeps me in line with her editing whip (she’s a softy, but don’t tell her I said that) and without further ado here’s how I do what I do…


.:WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?:. 


Currently, I’m working on my new paranormal series, Scarlet Ties, the first book, Taste will be published by Totally Bound Publishing this summer. In the series, you’ll come to learn about the sexy twin vampires, Cyrus and Coye Rayven, and their exclusive resort, The Scarlet Manor.  I’m also revamping my self-publishing imprint, Blush and two more series on the side of that.

.:HOW DOES YOUR WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS OF ITS GENRE?:. 


I believe that every author has a unique voice and approach to writing, that’s what makes it interesting to me. I’m currently reading Daily Rituals: How Artists Work by Mason Curry a interesting look on how artists, screenwriters, authors from Maya Angelou to Mozart worked amid the daily ebbs and flows of their day.  


For me, I believe being in a state of constant learning allows me  to keep my process fresh and alerts me as to what’s working and what’s not. I’m not afraid to start again, revise my methods and/or dig deeper within the creation of my characters or within myself.  

.:WHY DO YOU WRITE WHAT YOU DO?:. 


I enjoy writing sexy contemporary romance. The shorter format I usually write within works to provide the perfect backdrop for me to protray characters in a rich, thought-provoking manner. Mainly, I enjoy seeing two people come together despite the odds and connecting.


.:HOW DOES YOUR WRITING PROCESS WORK?:. 


My writing process usually starts with my characters yelling for my attention. lol. Coffee. Morning and mid afternoon writing sessions.  Evenings usually don’t work, unless I do writing sprints.  Story ideas start with a flash of a character, telling me of their woes, usually the hero/heroine that is working their last nerve. 🙂


 I get a strong sense of the protagonist’s background or story setup and then I’m off to the races. Oh, and plenty of music. The process changes depending on the story, the character and how many secrets they may or may not be keeping.
