When she isn't writing, Deidre works full-time in the local shipyard, decked out in safety gear and getting her hands dirty. She lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest, enjoying the changes in seasons year-round. When she isn't working either job, she's catching up on the stack of books on her dresser, kicking it with her children, or playing RPG video games.

She also writes adult LGBTQ erotic romance under Laelia West.

Read all genres, try them out at least. And especially read novels in the genre you want to write for. It helps to know what sells, what fans love, what fans hate, and what's most appropriate for the type of story you're aiming to advertise.

Just as importantly, write as often as possible. I keep a notebook and pen at work at all times, just in case a scene, phrase, or idea pops into my head while I'm busy.(less)

I've also started a side project: YA medieval fantasy, with a bit of thriller and romance.

Unfortunately, the sequel to First Spell has been indefinitely put on hold due to contract issues.(less)

Big Changes

The past year has been quite a doozy. In August 2018, my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed a month later. In February 2019, my babysitter fell through. In April I had to quit my job. And in May my 18-month-old had a febrile seizure.

Suffice to say, I needed a break. I cut contact from Facebook (and while I'm back, it's in much smaller doses) and quit writing for a couple weeks. B Read more of this blog post »

“Braeden,
I’m in love with you.
I’m sorry.
- Jeff”
Deidre Huesmann, Burning Britely

“Forgiving someone only absolves you from holding them accountable. When that person has not truly met that accountability, it is a weakness on your end, Miss Rachael. To forgive when they are unrepentant only relieves you of that responsibility.”
Deidre Huesmann, Secrets in the Fade

“A dark voice within warned him to stop, but Aaron brushed it off. He flashed Holden a patronizing smile. “All right, then. Why not here? I have no problem giving you a fair fight, considering our history.”

Slowly Holden relaxed his arms. There was a dark glimpse of metal, and then he took quick aim with his right hand. The short, lonely barrel of a gun stared Aaron in the eye. Even in his surprised state, Aaron could see what he was up against. An innocuous-looking Remington 1911, its wood-grip base outdated in style, but its precision and reliability lauded throughout the years.

“Considering our history,” Holden said through his teeth, “I have no interest in fair.”
Deidre Huesmann, Call of the Lycan

“All the talking in the world couldn't even prove you and the other person both saw the same color red.”
L.J. Smith, Secret Vampire

“And it was good just to hold her and touch the softness of her skin. He wanted to hold her hard, not to hurt her but to keep her safe, to show her that he was strong enough to protect her. Her beauty was like fire and strange music, and he loved her.”
L.J. Smith, Dark Visions

“How old did they tell you I am?” she demanded, hurrying to match his pace.

Joel shook his head. “If my mother ever taught me anything, it was to never question a lady’s age.”
Deidre Huesmann, Blistered

“So, Azalee—” When he turned to her, she stared daggers back—almost as though she had read his mind. Can Chertzes do that? he wondered in a wild moment of panic.

“What?” bit Azalee when he didn’t continue.

Mighty Zeus, could he go five minutes without offending a woman?”
Deidre Huesmann, Blistered

“What truly captivated Rachael were her eyes—wide, deer-like, yet hauntingly sinister green with flecks of gold dancing in silent mirth.”
Deidre Huesmann, Howl of the Sequoia
