When the words aren't happening, I walk away from my computer and do something solitary, like vacuum or wash dishes or take a shower. But vacuuming sometimes leads to dusting leads to sorting leads to... Washing dishes, I'm thinking of what to fix for dinner. The shower is four walls and my imagination. I've worked through a lot of stuck dialog and action sequences that way. So far I have been able to get by on just one shower a day. :)(less)

Hitting the road.

It only seemed appropriate that a story about hitting the road have a car that made a statement. The 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442, a muscle car, fit the bill. I spent a lot of time researching muscle cars but kept coming back to the Olds. Classy. Roomy. A gas hog, which made it easy to work in another given on a road trip: numerous bathroom breaks.

Iditarod Nights (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 09, 2016 04:50PM
Description: Claire is about to take sixteen dogs on the biggest race of her life: 1,049 miles of harsh terrain, extreme weather and sleep deprivation. She doesn't have time for romance. Yes, the musher from Nome is easy on the eyes, but he belongs in Alaska, and she will return to Oregon after the race, to honor a promise. Besides, the man has too many secrets, and secrets always come back to bite her.
