What is this Author-ish you Speak of?

I promised a blog post since I uploaded the links to my books. Darn kids. I also been writing. But mainly blame the kids. My 4 yr old and 1 year old keep me busy. Matter fact as I write this, I’m shouting at one of them!! Okay Okay…I’M AN AUTHOR!!!!

One of my BIGGEST dreams have come true!!!!! This has been a part of me since I was 13 years old. I loved reading so much as a kid, and yes, I still do. I had two career goals, write books and to teach. Along my journey, I was hesitant to teach because I wasn’t sure which grade would best fit me. But then when I reached college, I received my English creative writing degree and thought about if I can qualify to teach an undergrad level 1 course. That’s what I’m aiming for now.

For now, back to writing!

My master’s program encouraged me to finally get that 1st book out! It was 2 years in the making going through thanks to:

● Peer Reviews
● Self Doubt
● Research 
● Revision
● Beta Readers 


When I wrote Crisis of Lust, in my mind it was just a love story gone wrong trying to work their way back together and away from insecurities and holding on to past issues. Sounds simple right? 

A romantic story that was supposed to have arguments. Then bliss. Well let me tell you something!! While taking editing courses and such during my degree program, I was watching all sorts of psychological thrillers and read a few.

I even watched YOU (Netflix) and then new ideas flared. 

I said Hmmm. What if I create a character that shifts this love story? He’s possessive, very creepy, dangerous and weird. He’s also sarcastic. He’s PERFECT! 

Clare’s new love interest became who he was because his charm and sexiness pulled her in. 

Here’s a little Tyler dialogue….

“I walked to her bedroom, searching for I don’t know what and peeked in the bathroom and snatched her panties off the floor, they smell so good I need keep them. I pocket them then disappear before she sees me. I figure with her being high, she will see it as hallucinating rather than me actually being here. The aroma of Sweet Pea has been pushing me to enter the bathroom and feel her up, but that would turn out for the worst.”

Yup that was it.

As I went from 2 POV’s to 3 I knew it would shake the readers.

Crisis of Lust became Romantic Suspense. 

I had written the story out the way I seen it. Then I researched a few ways to create intense suspense in a novel and worked it into my book with my own style. 

I still felt as if my readers would say “THIS SUCKED!” 

BUT, REVIEWS HAVE BEEN OPPOSITE! 

Check out some of the Reviews! (Crisis of Lust has 10 total on Amazon. I wasn’t going to post them, although I did consider it)

I am grateful to see all my hard work slowly paying off.

Thank you for reading!
