I'm not sure I really have pet peeves. I'm assuming you mean as a reader. I like to be able to visualize the setting, so if the story doesn't have enough sensory information woven in, I get disappointed. I'm not a fan of cliches in the writing or cliche characters.

That's a tough one. I have ten books out and I have lots of characters that I love--including feisty grandmothers/elderly women. So I'm going to narrow it down and go with heroes. Still tough, but I'm going with Trent from Decidedly Off Limits. I loosely based him on my husband. They share the same career and a few other aspects. ;)

(And now for some shameless promo...Decidedly Off Limits is free on all vendors if you want to see why he's one of my favorite heroes.)

I tend to work on more than one book at a time. But each book is in a different phase. I'm currently thinking about my next book (3rd book in the Copper Creek series). I'm spending the rest of today editing Decidedly With Mistletoe after my editor's feedback. The book is due soon for the copy editor. And then on Tuesday I'll get back to editing the second book in the Copper Creek series. I need to send it to my editor next month.

I used to be a one-book-at-a-time type writer, but that's no longer practical. Plus while I'm working on one book, I can put another aside to give it distance. Once I get back to it, I can see it from a fresher perspective. I find that works best for me. :)

Hi Debra,

When I was 9 years old, I was a reluctant reader. And then I discovered Edith Blyton's Famous Five series (I was living in England at the time). That's when I decided I wanted to be a writer. It wasn't until after child #3 was born (many many many years later) that I finally took the steps to learn to write novels. At that point, I had just become a stay-at-home mom. I started out writing middle grade stories, but in time that moved to YA, then NA. My first published book was a NA novel. :) What can I say? I like writing kissing and sex scenes. lol

Well, that makes sense!! I'm always amazed by that criativity and the development of writing, the story, this criative process!!

Thank you for your answer!!

My second son wants to write movies and thinks I'm nuts working on several projects at a time. lol

Hi Nicole,

In romance, that would be Jill Shalvis, Brenda St. John Brown, Emma Chase, Lauren Blakely, and Lauren Layne. There are many others too. For psychological suspense, that would be Lisa Gardner. Wow, that woman has one twisted mind. lol
