First off, can you tell us a bit about you?
A.C. I grew up in the Boston burbs. Moved to the city for college, dropped out, got a half-way decent job, and got married.
He joined the Air Force and we were stationed in Colorado where I had my one and only darling daughter.
Got divorced and came home to mom and dad…baby in tow!
If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t have been able to afford to go back to school and graduate as an RN. I worked as a nurse for 20 years.
It put food on the table and allowed me to buy our own little place—much to my parents’ relief, I’m sure.
I’ve always been creative. Nursing isn’t a creative profession. In fact, getting creative really upsets the doctors, so it’s highly discouraged. LOL
I’ll blow past those twenty years and two more marriages—the third one being the charm—and go straight to, eventually I could afford to follow my dream, and I knew my parents would want me to.
They passed away in 2001. So, Mr. Amazing pays the bills and I write. I never thought I’d be this happy.
No. I can’t believe I missed the clues. They were right in front of my face. I loved my creative writing class in high school and got an A. I kept a journal and crafted some really bad poetry.
Eventually I took a screen writing course, because Mr. Amazing is a neat freak and I thought it would be cleaner than painting. Ha. Little did I know... You should see my home office!
Both. I usually pants the first three chapters, and by then I know my characters and can predict the ending I want. At that point I need a map to get there. So I stop and plot the rest, making sure I end with a super HEA.
I blame Thalia—the muse of comedy.
Oh, wow! Wait, that’s not part of it. I was just reacting to your question... Shoot. Now I only have about 20 characters left…
Darn, I’m out—
I love to read other paranormal comedies, or anything with a big, sensuous, gushy romance. No tear-jerkers though.
Gone with the Wind. Yup. An oldie, but goodie. The book is huge, and the movie was too. I have to say, it did the book justice. Incredible cinematography, especially for its day, and the casting was spot-on. Today, they cut books to two hours max. I guess that’s all the attention span we have now.
Love scenes. Keeping it fresh is the trick. How many ways can you write, tab A goes into slot B? LOL The characters and their individual reactions to it are the saving grace.
Dalton Diaz, Annette Blair and Nora LeDuc. Because they’re all friends of mine, they tell it like it is, and I wouldn’t have to worry about those embarrassing fan-girl moments.
Always! Book 3 in the Boston Dragons series, and setting up a bridge to a whole new series that was just contracted! It’s a spin-off of book 2, My Wild Irish Dragon.
