I have taken part in the hero blog hop as a reader only. (I missed the deadline to join in!) However, the more I read, the more my characters (especially Heath) are demanding that I write a hero post for them. So here it is! (Now maybe a writer can get some peace and quiet …

A comparison

            The April 20/27, 2012 Issue #1203/1204 of Entertainment Weekly has, on page 90, an interview with Nicholas Sparks where they asked him about his five favorite romance movies. I thought it might be fun to compare his thoughts on these films with how my own characters and storylines from the Existence …

In the first book (Fractions of Existence) it becomes clear that Xavier is “”rolling in it.””  In later books it will become clear …

Y is for Yule (Existence series character)

            Fantastic. I left a beautiful five star hotel with a delicious masseur to stay in a box. Xavier is seriously going to owe me for this. So is she, once she gets her memory back.             She looks so sad. It’s hard to not be able to reveal the answers …

W is for William Warehime (Existence series character)

            When William first met Xavier’s sister Adrielle, she was dressed in black leather spiked boots that were laced up to her thighs, a tiny black leather skirt, and a low scooped purple top. She bore no resemblance to any upper crust socialite or noblewoman, not that he had met very …

O is for the color Orange

Xavier’s favorite color is orange. Here’s a look at what some pages on the Internet have to say about that: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/favorite-color-personality.html “ Orange: This color of luxury and pleasure appeals to the flamboyant and fun-loving person who likes a lively social round. Orange people may be inclined to dramatize a bit, and people notice them, …

K is for Killjoy

            My favorite line in book one (Fractions of Existence) is Xavier’s reply of “Killjoy,” to Gwendolyn. I laugh every time I read it. There is something so light and natural about their witty banter with each other. At the outset, it seems like they would be nervous and awkward when …
