I’ve been invited to answer these five fabulous questions from the lovely Emma Jane over at Em’s Blog.
Emma is the author of M/M romance novels Otherworld (due for release from Torquere Press November 5th) and Shuttered (due for release from Dreamspinner in December). Also, her short story, The Queen’s Guard, is featured in the Men In Uniform anthology in which I made my publishing debut! Stop by her page to say hello and see what she has is store.
And on to the questions:
What am I working on?
What am I NOT working on is a better question. But I’ll keep this simple. I’m in edits for a short M/M romance starring a pessimistic Army vet with PTSD and a physical therapist set on helping him heal more than his wounded leg. I’m also working on my first M/M novel of a three book series set in Charleston, SC. I’m loving the research for it!
How does my work differ from others in its genre?
Details. I’m obsessed with little details that add to the complexity and richness of writing. For me it’s the details that make you feel like you’re part of the story – whether it be bits of dialogue, humor, descriptions of setting, or a character quirk. I strive to add those layers of detail in everything I write.
Why do I write what I do?
I love love. I love men. Why not write about how they come together? It’s a beautiful, complicated dance. Yet, always worth it in the end!
How does my writing process work?
Characters usually come to me first. I want my characters down pat. I need to KNOW them like a good friend before I begin writing. Then I make them jump through hoops for a while before I allow them their happy endings.
And I’m definitely a plotter. I can plot for days, weeks…though I have no problem changing it up once I begin writing if something better pops up.
