About this author

Alyssa Everett grew up in Florida, where from an early age her favorite books typically had dukes in them. As a teen she worked in an amusement park, doing just about every kind of odd job a person can do, from collecting garbage to captaining an African boat cruise.

She met her future husband, a darkly handsome doctor with a wicked sense of humor, at Harvard University. They currently live with their three children in small-town Pennsylvania.

But I've discovered that when I run into writer's block, it's usually my subconscious telling me I'm trying to take the story down the wrong track.

I try to figure out what that thing is, then go back and tear out everything I've written since that point. It can be painful to cut pages I've already written, but it usually gets me past my writer's block.(less)

It sounds like a form of mental illness but it's actually more like lucid dreaming, since I can make them do and say whatever I want.(less)
