- What is on your nightstand?
Pam: A notebook, current book I’m reading, a lamp, and the TV remote.
Debra: At the moment the adventures of Winnie the Pooh. I have been visiting my grandchildren this week and my oldest granddaughter, who is three, loves Pooh bear. I confess, I love these stories too.
Teri: A lamp and books.
Maggie: Lotion, water, diffuser with lavender oil, latest paperback
- What author would you totally fan?
Pam: J K Rowling
Debra: Alice Hoffman. I love the fairy tale aspects of her writing.
Teri: JD Robb/Nora Roberts
Maggie: Lexi Blake!!
Nia: Sierra Simone
- What makes you cringe?
Debra: Snakes in movies. I cannot watch them.
Maggie: Crude words used for a beautiful intimate moment.
Nia: Seeing videos where people get hurt.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
Pam: I’m a combination of both. I have an idea and go for it. I’m not a total pantster because most of the time I do months, even years of research for my stories.
Debra: I get a story idea, then I start writing, and the characters reveal themselves as I write. The plot may be a plot idea at first or just a scene. It depends on the book. If I plot an entire book from start to finish, I don’t start writing the book. It is as if all the juice from the fruit dried right out.
Maggie: I have an outline, but what the characters tell me is usually the way I go.
Nia: Total pantster here.
- Is there a word you love to use?
Pam: That, I have to literally go through my manuscripts and get rid of most of the “thats” and only use it where it’s necessary.
Debra: Just. It’s a word I have to edit out all the time. But I speak that way.
Teri: End. As in The End.
Maggie: Darlin’. My characters just have an intimate drawl when seducing or sassing. Not exactly southern, but a pop of sexy.
Nia: I have to watch “massive” when I’m describing male genitalia. My heroes are very well endowed.
Tashia M Jennings says
Sounds truly wonderful. My husband served for 24yrs. Eleven of those spent in Middle East. He has work on military base for last 10yrs so books with stories such as these mean a great deal to me. Thank you for sharing.
We appreciate everything our service men do for us. My father was a Pearl survivor and was in the reserves for 18 years after WW2. This was a wonderful chance to show the love for those who go above and beyond. I hope you love the book as much as we enjoyed writing the stories.
