Karen Tomsovic is the author of contemporary women's fiction and feel-good romance. She lives in the Pacific Northwest, where she likes to write at her kitchen table and find new ways to describe the clouds outside the window.

Her two pet parrots, Teddy and Daisy, interrupt her as often as possible. Daisy loves to devour books -- literally, especially the covers. Teddy makes a great muse. He thinks Karen should have a bird in every book. Karen says she'll try.

Usually if it seems like a story's not working, it's because I don't know what my character wants or why, or I've dropped the thread of it somewhere. Then I work the problem, meaning I analyze and figure out what's missing, what's not working. That often means diving back into a book or an article about writing and driving those lessons back into my skull. And if my imagination's coming up empty with a solution, I file it away in the back of my mind and go do something else. The answer always comes. Maybe in a few hours, maybe in a few days, but it always comes.(less)
