Why do we write? What compels us? The stories itching to come out on the page so they can be shared with anyone kind, curious, or imaginative enough to read them.
At the book signings, the reactions from people are priceless. Some will shake their heads and say, “I never read that stuff, gives me nightmares.” When one of my people realizes I’m signing a vampire book their faces light up. “I love vampires!” I got a t-shirt that says that after one of my book signings. They always say they like to escape into a paranormal/horror romance. Me too!
I enjoy putting my main character into all kinds of crazy situations as the vampire world tries to manipulate, seduce and ensnare her. Miranda surprises them every time. At times she reminds me of the Hobbits in the Lord of the Rings, dealing with amazing powerful elves and wizards yet they find their own special strengths are needed to save the day, or in Miranda’s case the night.
I hope this inspires you to write. No one can tell your stories better than you. I always write with a mug of black coffee nearby. It helps with plot development. So get your beverage of choice, a laptop or notebook and write!
