Annette Mardis writes the kind of contemporary romance novels that she loves to read. Her characters are the type of people you’ve worked with or lived next door to, and the plots are filled with the dramas, disappointments, joys, passions, and humor of everyday life.

Her Gulf Shore series will transport you to a fictional coastal Florida town where you’ll taste salt on your skin and feel sugary white sand between your toes, the warm sun on your shoulders, and the sea breeze ruffling your hair.

You’ll meet swoon-worthy alpha males who aren’t embarrassed to cuddle a rescued baby dolphin in their muscular arms, and accomplished women looking for an equal partner who thinks that smart is sexy.

You’ll get up close and personal with sea life, joi

But I put a lot of myself into my first book, the woman's fiction novella "Getting Her Money's Worth." And my experiences as a volunteer at a marine animal rescue in Clearwater have inspired some of the scenes and story lines in my Gulf Shore novels. (less)

There are several things you can do to get unblocked. All involve setting it aside for a bit. First thing you can do is walk away from the computer, even if it's just to go to the kitchen for a snack or a beverage. Getting away from it even for just a few minutes can refresh your mind. If you're really brain weary, stop for the day and sleep on it. Sometimes I can work through a scene in my head when I'm lying in bed. Keep a pen and paper by the bed in case this happens. Another suggestion: Write something even if you hate it. You can come back and rewrite it or tweak it later. Or, skip the scene entirely and go on to the next one. Go back later and add it the part that stumped you. You don't always have to write a book in order. If you've got a great idea for an ending, for example, write that first. With the book I'm writing now, I started with a section toward the middle and then wrote the beginning later. Hope this helps. If you have further questions. I'm always happy to answer them. Best of luck. (less)
