Belinda loves to create novels that will make you scream with laughter. She shudders as she writes thrillers with twists and turns, and love stories that will squeeze your heart. Her goal is to entertain and touch you by making you laugh, cry, get angry, i.e. go through the emotional experience that makes us all human and by doing so, humanize her characters.

Her aim with her books is to grab the reader by the shirt collar and drag him or her into the book, and not let go until the end. She hopes that the reader will not just read her story, but experience it, with chills, blood pounding, brain bursting, LOL, etc.

She writes Chick-Lit, Women's Fiction, Psychological Thrillers and Romantic Suspense.

She writes under two other names: B. Austin

If …moreI've never had writer's block. I tend to be verbose and my ideas sometimes explode into several books, like in my new YA Dystopian Series Outcast. If I have an idea for a book and the book doesn't start writing itself, then I know there is no story for me with that idea no matter how Pulitzer Prize it may be (ha!). However, when the stars align, then the books starts writing and I have a hard time falling asleep because the story just won't stop and the characters refuse to shut up. What I never do is start a book without having the ending, which granted may change as the book evolves.(less)

I laugh, cry, and fall in love at my computer.

I enjoy creating stories, characters, etc. As the story unfolds, I am constantly surprised by what happens though I know the ending (which may change) and eventually write an outline, mainly to keep track of what is going as the book grows in size.

Dishonor Thy Wife was especially hard to write because when I went back in time to the beginning and retold the first part after hitting the reader with a wallop, I needed to make sure I didn't repeat what I had been said before and not bore the reader. I wanted to give the reader new information.

Lastly, I enjoy setting my own schedule. I've had my fair share of 8 to 5 jobs. I confess though that I usually work more than 10 hour days or sometimes 12. And I work 7 days a week unless I take a rare vacation.(less)

“He was special friend to Coyote Kachina, who taught him the secret of shape shifting.” “Grandfather blessed this earth with his presence for ninety-eight years. He had the courage to survive and left this world a better place than he found it. We shall all miss him.” She blew a kiss at Grandfather. “Goodbye, Governor. You are my sun beneath the earth, my heart above the clouds, and my prayer for a better life. I will see you every morning when the sun rises. I shall miss you when the sun sets. I will yearn for you on a cloudy day. Do not forget me.” She threw a silver locket with her picture into the grave.”
