I am the author of six science fiction novels. My latest work "Heart Of The Machine" is now available on the Kindle. I live in USA where I continue to dream up more fantastic worlds for you to enjoy. When not writing, I can usually be found devouring another science fiction book, TV series, or movie.

And I am only speaking of the first three movies that George Lucas created and the many novels that came after (I don't like Disney's new path with the characters). As for why, a couple that would seem to be complete opposites that eventually fall in love and really make it work. Leia the adopted princess, raised as royalty, then a senator of her planet.
By contrast, Han was in the Imperial Navy until he saved Chewbacca which ended his career. Then went on to be a smuggler and trying to stay out of Imperial hands. He puts up a front to protect his true self, the self that saved Chewbacca. But in time, his true heart is what Leia sees and falls in love with.
The twists of these two characters always make for an interesting story.(less)

Many authors debate "writer's block". Some feel it is just a excuse. Others think it is a real problem. I am in the middle. I believe it can be a real problem, but one you can work through. Although, it is difficult. But if writing were easy, everyone would do it. How I work through a problem is get away from the book for a short period. Often this means work on another project, or it can mean go do something totally different.

You never know what might give you the inspiration to fill in the hole you have been stuck with. My suggestion is to make a lot of notes on the problem and get away from it for a while. The solution will come. Just don't give up. Tell yourself "I CAN fix this!" Because you can, it might not be that second, but you can and will get there.(less)
