I'm inspired by stories that defeat the odds. Whether it's medical, environmental, or psychological, I want to see a positive outcome and a HEA!

Most of my inspiration comes from life. Since my first series in outer space =P not directly of course but themes and ideas. I love thinking about the possibilities.

HI AG. I love the possibility of it all. In contemporary romance (which I also write) you have to strict to certain society ideas. I loved making my own world. Making my own laws and nature and everything really.

What do you write?

I have a time travel/love story. Going back to the western, even though it is fiction, I have to have my facts right for the story to ring true. Most of my stories I just write in my head then put on paper. (computer). How do you write? outline your story then fill in or do you let the story tell itself?

I personally am an outliner and series outliner. I am not religious about it. I just have an idea of everythign that must happen that chapter and pants the rest. This way I know I will include the entire plot and there should be good pacing.

I do like daydreamer about my story though. I LOVE those dreams where I can see what is going to happen.

I love westerns esp when I was younger, but I would never be able to write that as I think then I might be too hyper about the details, same with historical. Thus why I do fantasy or contemporary lol,
