I want to thank Louise Baccio for tagging me to participate in the blog tour. I love answering questions!
1) What am I working on?
I’m very heavy into publishing right now… One book a month is the new schedule for the remaining 24 books in my pirate series. But for those who are waiting… I am over 35,000 words into the fourth of the Kraken’s Caribbean series… Yes, the story of Lee and his journey toward love will be out this summer (I hope!). The Kraken’s Promise…Lee and Karen Silvestri, the child of Janie and Benjamin, will both find a true course to sail, and face a very nasty dra…uh, villainess!
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Are there other books in this genre? Okay, seriously…in the genre of romantic pirate adventures series my books differ because I write of one couple. Same world, same ship, just the continuing adventures and challenges of Jake and Miranda. A bit like a television series…
3) Why do I write what I do?
I fell in love with adventure stories from a very early age. From Tarzan on TV (Ron Ely – sigh), the stories of Robin Hood and a very early exposure to swords and sorcery…so that is what I had to write. Pirate movies, the great Hollywood versions, totally corrupted my version of what pirating is all about. Romance, bright colored clothing, lots of room… I write what I love. And I love pirates!
4) How does my writing process work?
I’m a total pantser who secretly outlines. I don’t call it plotting because I do nothing in detail… I generally haul the laptop onto the lap and dive into it at night. The days are spent with the many other tasks of an author… Tho I have been known to spend a day buried in a plot point at Starbucks…
Okay! Next week, follow the tour to the blog of Fran Colley, a book reviewer extraordinary and a writer working on a handful of projects at the same time. One…about Adam and Eve is wonderful! Check her out at Hellie’s Radical and Frequently Raving Reviews and Other Random Ruminations.
