The first sentence I wrote back in 2011 was for my paranormal romance novel, Fractured Moon. It was, “Time doesn’t heal all wounds, handy lie though it may be, time forces acceptance of what cannot be changed.”
I never set out to write erotic romance, or erotic fiction. I had a paranormal story in my head, Aurelia and Ceithin whispering werewolf words to me, but once I got started, the sexy just rolled off my finger tips.
Looking back, I think writing poetry played a big part in how I strung words together. I love alliteration, and I find when I re-read things I wrote, it’s a natural occurrence within my words.
Writing flash fiction helped condense what I wanted to say within the confines of 100 or 200 words. These exercises were pivotal in shaping my style and voice.
Originally, I thought I’d write mostly urban fantasy or paranormal thrillers, and I’m often surprised when I look at my back list and see a whole lot of sexy stories. The Hot Lunch Series took me by surprise, but I’m so happy they came. (Ha!) Over the past year, I’ve gravitated toward compact stories with a heaping tablespoon full of emotion and sexual angst.
For me, long word counts (75K+) seem so daunting. Like I’ll never get there or finish. Some of my problem is I lack focus right now, having had four kids home for the summer, being the mom, wife, housekeeper, cook, etc. It left no time for me. I was exhausted. (I think I’ll be exhausted forever, right parents?)
But now the kids are back in school and I have no excuse. My short series are all complete now, and I have to get back into Aurelia’s world to finish Moon Justice. Then I have plans for a move in a new direction. A new pen name, a new world filled with paranormal creatures and a kick ass heroine named Luna. I’m not where I thought I’d be, but in the wise words of Lao Tzu, “If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.”
