With regard to writer's block, we've been really blessed. Since we collaborate on everything, when one of us is feeling stuck, the other is there to keep the ball rolling.
To give an example, it's become a standing joke that when Nikoo is stuck with the beginning of a scene, laboring for hours and coming up empty, she will turn to me and say, 'Get me started.' Since we've already talked and talked and talked about the scene, I just launch into it, spending an hour or so and writing a few pages that I think are just brilliant. Nikoo then reads it over and invariably looks me in the eye and says, "Well, now I know what I DON'T want."
So, in the end, I don't have to deal with writer's block, but Nikoo has to deal with her writer's blockhead.(less)

Aquarian (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 09, 2012 09:45AM
Description: Like every other girl her age, Killian knows all about vampires and aliens and bad boys of every description. They are not real. When a handsome young swimmer climbs into her storm-tossed boat an hour from her summer destination, however, the worlds of fantasy and reality suddenly collide…and a journey of love and self-discovery begins. Uncas Island is a place of mystery. The island has no mall, no social scene, and no action of any kind, but it does have immortal islanders, a seer with his own stone tower, and two bad boys who battle for Killian's attentions. Before the summer is through, Killian will learn the truth of her family's past and the role she is destined to play in a centuries old curse.
