An Inauspicious Meeting #MFRWHooks

My favorite parts of a romance are when the heroine/hero first meet. This was possibly one of my favorite meetings to write yet. Andie, our heroine, is breaking into a very large home – sort of like a compound – and gets…well…caught. EXCERPT “I’m not going to ask how you got in here. Clearly, our security needs reviewing.” Andie didn’t betray her satisfaction at … Read More An Inauspicious Meeting #MFRWHooks

A Warning From A Polar Bear Shifter

A.J. let himself back into the cave. As he dropped inside, he suddenly faced a very wary cougar and polar bear, both ready to fight. Both relaxed when they saw it was he. Andie nodded. Saying nothing, she let herself out of the cave the way A.J. had come in. He shifted as he watched her leave, his lips set in a grim line. Zac shifted … Read More A Warning From A Polar Bear Shifter

The Scene that Started It All: Andromeda’s Fall Excerpt

I’ve posted before about how the initial idea for Andromeda’s Fall started with a single scene. This is that scene:   Andie lay close to the ground so she would blend in with the landscape should anyone be watching. She’d found an outcropping of rock that gave her an unobstructed view of the area she’d been assigned to patrol. The darkness was just barely illuminated … Read More The Scene that Started It All: Andromeda’s Fall Excerpt

Writing the Spunky Heroine

I took an excellent workshop on character development from Anna Stuart and Mel Curtis a few months ago. During that workshop we discussed the book, Heroes & Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes which introduces different character archetypes for both the heroine and hero. (Excellent workshop and book – highly recommend both!). I discovered something about myself as a writer in that workshop. I LOVE to … Read More Writing the Spunky Heroine

Meet the Villain

The source of trouble in Andromeda’s Fall comes from a father/son pair: Walter and Kyle Carstairs. Walter is the long-reigning Alpha of the Carstairs Dare. For years he’s ruled with an iron fist and master manipulation. Kyle is his son, and, according to the laws of the Shadowcat Nation, next in line to be Alpha, assuming he handles all challengers. In the prequel short … Read More Meet the Villain
