At this very moment (in fact, all day today!) I've been working to finish my fourth book, Sway. It's the second in a collection of novels and novellas about the music industry called the Confession Records collection.
The way I try to make my work differ from a lot of stories in the romance genre is to give a very solid and strong female voice to my books. I love writing men but creating a strong heroine means a lot to me as I know the majority of my readers are women and I'd like to think that seeing a well-rounded, independent woman is better than some of the blank canvas characters I've read in romance in the past.
I write romance because I love LOVE! I like creating the moments between a couple and making the reader feel as though they are watching a real love story unfold. Yes, there are always going to be those over the top, shout from the rooftops, kiss in the rain moments that can only happen in books but when you get down to the nitty-gritty, my characters fall in love the way I did. Realistically.
When it comes to my writing process I start with a seed and write as much as I can with my initial idea. From there I tend to start to outline as the story continues and my outlines usually make themselves most useful when I'm in the very last few chapters. I like to write to music, usually with a glass of wine or a mug of black coffee!
So there you have it! My writing process in a nut-shell. Here's the newly revealed cover of Sway! It will be releasing on May 1st.
