One day, these characters and an idea for a story popped into my head. I grabbed a notebook and a pen...and my R.I.S.C. Series was born!
Taking a Risk, Part One
Though, I’ve only published my first two books, I’ve already seen my writing style grow. I make every effort to write in a way that makes my readers feel they're a part of the story.
My hero, Kole, is unexpectedly diagnosed with Relasping-remitting Multiple Sclerosis.
Not only does the Movember Foundation do so many, wonderful things, but this anthology has given me the opportunity to bring RRMS into the spotlight. My husband and I have a friend who was diagnosed with RRMS ten years ago, and saw the struggles he and his family initially faced. I wanted my hero to show readers how a young man can still go in to live a full and happy life, despite this particular challenge.
The Movember Foundation is invaluable, and we want as many people to know about it and support it as possible.
“I protect people, baby. It’s not just what I do. It’s who I am. If I lose that, I don’t know what I’ll become.”
I did do research on RRMS. I wanted to ensure my story was as realistic as possible, and I didn’t want to misrepresent RRMS in any way.
Coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
So many things! Sometimes a simple word or phrase will spark an idea for a scene or stretch of dialogue between characters. A song actually inspired the creation of one of my Alpha Team characters! I’m like a sponge...always soaking up the world around me as I look for new ideas to help make my books the best they can be.
That is such a hard question to answer! I have so many “favorite” authors for many different reasons. If I absolutely had to narrow it down to just one, I’d have to say Cynthia Eden. She’s amazing, no matter what genre she writes.
So many! Way too many to list! Lol
