Just Write It

I do best on rainy days when I have quiet time, by myself. My Siamese cat, Anhi, loves to go upstairs with me; she curls up on on a fluffy sheepskin while I’m working on Book 2, A Bitter Wind Blows.


I wish I could write in a linear fashion, one chapter after another, but out-of-sequence  scenes occur to me, and the dialogue writes itself in my head. I have to get it down while it’s fresh, even though the action may not take place until later in the story. That’s why I have “Chapter X,” “Chapter Y” and, now, “Chapter Z.”

The trick is to work them in and add a precursor or a comment or some foreshadowing earlier in the book, so the transition will be fluid.

Have completed four Contemporary Fiction/Romance novels in The Riverwood Series. The first was released in August 2018; the second is under contract and in the process of edits. The third book and fourth books are in the queue. The fifth is now the current work-in-progress. The setting is Big South Fork, Tennessee which is known as "The Trailriding Capital of the Southeast" so these stories will all appeal to horse lovers who love to read books about horses.
