Hello, book fans. I am the mother of two, the wife of one, and the sibling of three (formerly four). I also blog at heyjoood.com where I ramble about favorite books and movies and personal topics--my younger sister Janet who died of brain cancer, and my autistic son Danny who takes quirky to an amazing level. I am a Kirkus Reviews Featured Author. More importantly, I am a huge fan of dark chocolate!

For one reason, my writing time is limited due to family obligations, namely, an autistic son, so when I do get the time to write, I'm ready. Before I write a story, I first make a general, three part outline. This helps me establish necessary structure. In each act, I have a folder full of ideas that have come to me, usually when I am nowhere near my computer. In short, I know where I'm going, and an outline and fully imagined plot and character sketches keep me on track. That said, those "aha" moments still happen. They may not occur while I'm in front of my computer--they might happen while I'm on the exercise bike or in the soup and veggie aisle at the grocery store. I keep paper nearby at all times--those are the ideas that make up most of my story. Inspiration can't be forced, but you can create the structure of your plot and subplots then let the ideas flow when they're ready to come to the surface. I never assume my best ideas will appear just because I'm ready to type. (less)
