Conversations With Characters

My characters are usually so bossy, but this one?
Me: Come out, come out wherever you are!
Her: No.
Me: But why not? You had such a good idea.
Her: {{peeks head out}} You think?
Me: Oh, I do, I do! Look. I have chocolate. and wine {{lifts wine bottle}}
Her: I’m allergic to chocolate.
Me: Who’s allergic to chocolate?
Her: Me. See? You don’t want to hear from me at all. {{shrinks back into closet}}
Me: What? Are you, like, five years old?
Her: {{Gasps!}} I am a grown woman. And, I cannot be lured with your frivolous gifts.
Me: You sound regency. We don’t do regency.
Her: You will if I say.
Him: Come out, come out, little one.
Her: {{Shoots out of closet like a cheeta}}
Me: Who the heck are you?
Her: Shhh, you might scare him away.
Him: I brought toys. The adult kind. {{looks at me}}
Her: She’s not invited.
Me: Um, I’m the writer? I am not wasting 40,000 words on a suddenly shy heroine.
Her: I shall consider your participation, minion.

It Was All The Cat’s Fault — Now Live!

My latest steamy romantic comedy is now live! {{Insert all the usual Woots-Happy Dances-Celebratory Awkward Moves here.}}

This story was tons of fun to write. Not only did bedroom shenanigans ensue with Brent and Eve, Thor–one very adventurous Maine Coon cat–encourages it!

This bossy kitty waltzed into my office one and announced he also needed a role. Needless to say, he upstaged my hero and heroine a few times.

But Brent, our hero? His hotness cannot be denied.

Early Reviews!

“…Brent is definitely the unexpected!”

“…sizzling chemistry!”

“…Charming and most definitely sexy!”

“A feel-good book that is so needed!”

“Thor, the cat, stole the show. I loved his personality throughout the whole book.” 

THOR! How did you get into my computer and pull this last quote? He is looking innocently at me, but I know better.

He says “buy the book. I’m in it.” Cats are so bossy….

New Book! Do we love a grumpy boss or what?

RELEASES January 25, 2021!

Remember a few months ago when a grumpy guy walked in and was complaining about how much this other character, Adelaide, talked? These two would not leave me alone. So they got a story. And lo! and behold! A group of authors had similar experiences with nanny characters. I joined forced with these fantastic writers for the Practically Perfect Nannies series.

About The Sassy Nanny Dilemma
When Ashton Scott returns to his hometown with his daughter he was trying to avoid complications. Hiring a nanny who’d secretly had a crush on him for 14 years wasn’t on his to-do list.
 
But now all grown up, did she have to be so damned magnetic?
 
Good thing resistance to temptation was his specialty. At least it was…

Conversations with Characters

I can’t even….
 
Me: {leaning back in chair because finally the book is done}
Unidentified male character (a.ka. “him”): Busy?
Me: Get out.
Him: I haven’t told you yet the story I want written about me.
Me: {Tosses dictionary toward him} Look up the definition of “get” and “out.”
Him: You know resistance is futile.
Me: Where were you three days ago when I had writer’s block?
Him: Oh, good, that means you want to hear my story about how I started the store where people find their soul matches except so long as I’m the owner of the store I can’t, which is my purpose in life so I can’t stop, but… well you see where I’m going.
Me: I did something in a former life to have my brain be so strange, didn’t I?
Him: You should be grateful I jumped the line.. {jerks head toward the hallway} … the guy behind me wants a reverse harem but with both men and women. The woman behind him? A story about a reformed demon who helps women get revenge on men who conned them but then she falls in love with her con man and the demon
Me: Reformed demon.
Woman: {pops head around door frame] Did I hear demon? It’s my turn now?
Him: Get out. 
Me: That’s my line.
