Award winning author Alina K. Field earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and German literature, but her true passion is the much happier world of romance fiction. Though her roots are in the Midwestern U.S., after six very, very, very cold years in Chicago, she moved to Southern California and hasn’t looked back. She shares a midcentury home with her husband, her spunky, blonde, rescued terrier, and the blue-eyed cat who conned his way in for dinner one day and decided the food was too good to leave.

She is the author of the 2014 Book Buyer’s Best winner, Rosalyn’s Ring, a 2015 RONE Award finalist, Bella’s Band, and 2016 and 2017 National Reader’s Choice Award finalists, Liliana’s Letter and The Marquess and the Midwife. She is hard

But...a few years ago I learned that my home is built on the site of an early adobe, and that the U.S. army camped here shortly before a decisive battle in the Mexican-American War.

Which is not always a bad thing, but you have to get the words on the page first.
Actually, I do find myself stuck sometimes. Sometimes it's my inner critic beating me over the head. Sometimes I've dropped a thread, like dropping a stitch when you're knitting.
I have three proven strategies to get unstuck: 1) take a step back and review the characters' goals for the scene I just worked on, 2) give my self permission to write garbage, 3) glue my bottom to the chair and keep writing. (less)
