For whatever reason, I often untie a story knot if I'm on a 3-4 mile walk through the wooded park near my house. Second, research. If I get stuck, I'll research more about my character's profession or other particular trait, and often I'll learn something that will take me in a new direction. (less)

I don't know that I ever saw or replied to this notice. Now it is months later! Sorry. Sometimes I stay away from GR for chunks of time. I love it as a reader, but it can be a little harsh when you see a bad review! LOL Anyway, I appreciate your note and hope you enjoyed ITC as well as WTW. I'm busy writing more books for all my series, so hopefully I can continue to keep you entertained. Thanks for writing!
