After building a Fortress of Solitude from books in her to-be-read pile, Jami Gold moved to Arizona and decided to become a writer, where she could put her talent for making up stuff to good use, including winning the 2015 National Readers’ Choice Award in Paranormal Romance for Ironclad Devotion.

Fueled by chocolate, she writes paranormal romance and urban fantasy tales that range from dark to humorous, but one thing remains the same: Normal need not apply. Just ask her family—and zombie cat.

That's why I have a whole blog geared toward writers, with hundreds of articles about plot, characters, scenes, character growth, etc. (at http://jamigold.com/blog/ and check the sidebar for a search box and menu of post topics).

My first piece of advice would be to embrace the learning curve. Don't expect to go into writing and be able to learn everything--and then be done learning. Nope...the learning goes on forever--think *journey* not *destination*. ;)(less)

I love being a writer for *many* reasons! :) But my favorite part is getting to know my characters.

I write "organically," meaning that I don't know very much about my story before I start, and I end up writing by the seat of my pants. So for me, writing a story is like making a new best friend, as I learn about my characters: their likes and dislikes, their personality, etc. And then I get to see them grow into their potential over the course of the story--fun!(less)

Here's the latest from Jami Gold, Paranormal Author :

Facts���and the lack of them���have been in the news lately, as society struggles to define what makes a fact a fact. But as the publishing industry says, fiction has to make more sense than real life.

The real world can get away with people whose motivations don’t make sense or plot twists and details that are too ridiculous to believe. In...

Has a book ever made you want to visit a place? That's what this book does for Sri Lanka. :)
