I am never without ideas. I believe that to be a writer, it is critical to be an interesting person first and foremost. Without being an interesting person, your writing is going to be flat and boring. So I try to just be interesting - go outside, meet people, learn new things, try things, watch people.

I find that the inspiration for my books is always an interesting woman. There will be something just slightly off about her and often she's in a situation that doesn't match her dynamic personality. For example, in At Any Cost, Fallon Hughes was a boho hippie chick trapped in the most conventional life imaginable: she was a corporate lawyer and the daughter of the President of the USA. That to me is intrinsically interesting.

In my newest book, Crash Into You, Aimee Baxter is a creative woman who has gotten involved with an overbearing, abusive boyfriend. The fact that both these characters - Fallon and Aimee - must reach way outside their normal lives in order to become who they truly are is really exciting and interesting to me, and lights that fire inside me to write their stories.(less)

I thought a plane crash would be a really interesting, traumatic way to bring a character to a small town.

Since my heart will always live in Washington D.C., and I love political intrigue, I wanted to bring just a tiny bit of that into the story. I suspect that every romantic suspense I ever write will have a little of political intrigue in it.

And the scandal at Abu Ghraib certainly played into the storyline. I was interested to know what would happen to someone in the aftermath of a huge torture scandal. (less)

Quotes by Cate Meredith  (?)

“I think about how many people I know who try to brush off the fact that their ‘agenda’ might be something that exists. That it might be to tell a story that isn’t just the same as everyone else’s. The very idea of being accused of an agenda in itself: what a horrifying prospect. The idea that people might want to be heard! It was as if Karla, right there, had screamed at the top of her voice over almost everyone in the games industry. I have an agenda. I have a fucking agenda. I imagine her standing in front of an audience made up of everyone in attendance at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, and pointing at people: ‘YOU have an agenda. And YOU have an agenda. And YOU have one too. I HAVE A FUCKING AGENDA.”
Cara Ellison, Embed With Games: A Year on the Couch with Game Developers

“Meanwhile, Terry has received a giant chocolate birthday cake. There is a unanimous decision amongst the attendees that he should headbutt it. He does so; chocolate chips fly everywhere. Later, he will punch the cake, and it will fragment across the floor. I have it on good authority some impish guests goaded him into it.”
Cara Ellison, Embed With Games: A Year on the Couch with Game Developers

“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
Anton Chekhov

“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.”
Lloyd Alexander

“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.”
William Shakespeare, Hamlet

“My wish is that you may be loved to the point of madness.”
