I’m so excited to share my new cover with you! Most Wanted, book three in the Triple Diamond series will be available for pre-order on December 11th!
Wild Flowers is LIVE and I can’t wait to share Micah and Dec with you — they’d probably like it! I have giveaways coming up all week (check out below for info on how to win!) and I hope you’ll join me back at the Triple Diamond Ranch!
My family has taught me how to fight for the right to create, how to make it the most important thing in your day and your life.
They have shown me that there is no direct route and how to forge my own.
Instead, I thought I’d write about inspiration in the kitchen and in the office.
And to do that, I need to talk about the Great British Baking Show.
Where cooking is my portraits, baking is my African Masks, the art in which I both excel and create, an activity that, like writing, drives something strong and creative from deep inside.
Because my family doesn’t just put up with my writing, as they were forced to do all those years ago in Asbury Park. They are an invaluable aid in finding the very best story, character or setting possible.
My favorite genre is binge reading stories from the library, spending all day in bed swearing I’ll stop after one more chapter, developing massive, unhealthy crushes on fictional characters. My favorite genre is whatever I can get my hands on.
The idea that we’ll never get the opportunity to produce our best work, that we’re wasting time, that we’re going to wake up one day and realize twenty years have passed and we’re still peddling in the same spot–that’s not exclusive to me.
My respect for the growth, influence and creativity involved in social media is immeasurable. It’s just that, well, it’s a lot of freaking work.
I think there are times when a prologue is helpful and times when it isn’t, and I know not everyone agrees. That said, you’ll want to keep some things in mind when starting with a prologue.
I got to sit down with my darling friend JN Welsh to discuss music, writing, research, and her new book, In Tune!
