Mari Suggs My advice is to read and write as much as possible; it's really the only way I know to get better and to get it done. Don't be afraid that you're not ready, most of us aren't, but we still did it anyway. Experience comes with time, the more you write, the better you get. Final advice: write because you love it and disconnect from the outcome of becoming a New York Times Bestselling author. Once you let go of the outcome and you write for the love of it, everything will fall into place.
Mari Suggs The idea for Falling For You came from when I was visiting Key Largo, Florida for my husband's work. While there, I found there wasn't much to do--unless you drove a half hour into a bigger city, so I started to wonder what it would be like to live like that, furthermore to love living like that. I began creating this character "Rachel" who was born and raised there and loved everything about the island. Then, coming from my own perspective, I created "Luke," a character who couldn't comprehend how people lived without the comforts that came from living in a big city: New York. This is where the story begins.
