A child of two cultures, this hapa haole Hawaiian girl is currently landlocked in the Midwest. After exploring the world for a chunk of years, she hunkered down in Minnesota and now fills her days with family, fiction, and the occasional snowstorm. With a house full of lovable toddlers, a three-legged cat, and one handsome Dutchman, she prowls the keyboard late at night while the minions sleep. Coffee? Nah, she prefers tea with a generous spoonful of sarcasm.

I've got a house full of kids, a ridiculously loud refrigerator, and a cat that insists on attention the moment I sit at the computer. My husband knows to keep it down when I'm trying to write. The man has keen survival instincts.
In my opinion, writer's block is something that can only be resolved by more writing. Inspiration doesn't always (ever?) come on demand. Expect pain because it's a matter of sitting down and pulling the story out one word at a time. Pile enough of them together, and hey, you've got a first draft you can pound into shape.(less)
Anela Deen It's got to be the rolling movie I have in my head. Yeah, that sounds mildly psychotic but I'm comfortable living with that possibility.
