In 2012, I came up with a series idea after falling in love with paranormal romance authors, like Lizzy Ford, Amy Barton, Kira Saito, Christie Rich, and Kiersten Fay. But I was shit at writing (or so I felt), so I stopped, shelved it, and started doing book reviews for my blog instead. This led to beta reading, which led to editing, which led right back around to writing once I’d figured out the best structure and techniques for my stories.
In 2016, I finished my first manuscript, which I have yet to edit, then moved on to short stories, and my Tinker Bell retelling—a work in progress still.
But my original story was nagging me this past month, and something clicked—an idea, a piece of the missing puzzle. I ended up writing book one within about a week. (I know, I’m still amazed too). I have a clear heading and am totally invested because, afterall, this was my first love; my first characters; my first fantasy world. So, I’m taking a step back from Tinker Bell, and focusing on Crystal Chaos—the title took forever to come up with—in my Veiled Fates series.
Currently, I’m writing book two, while cps/betas are reading book one and giving me feedback. I can’t wait to share this one with the world!
