I was asked, by Regency author Shereen Vedam to participate in a blog about my writing process by answering four questions.
1) What am I working on?
I’m currently working on book #6 of The Marriage Game. The working title is Lady Mary. I’m thinking I may need another title contest to get the final title.
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
At this point in time, I appear to be one of the few published authors who truly combine traditional Regency with the sensual, which confuses some people.
3) Why do I write what I do?
After years of reading fantastic authors, such as Georgette Heyer, and wishing there was more spice. I finally decided to write it myself. That has thrown some readers off, but, in my defense, I’m pretty open about my book having spicy loves scenes.
4) How does my writing process work?
I generally get a video that starts playing in my head. It could be an angry lady pacing, a man following a woman up narrow stairs, or a lady listening to her grandmother as if the woman had lost her mind. I take that scene, expand upon it, and the story begins to unfold. Generally my original scene makes it in the book somewhere.
