Hi Margaux!
Great question. For the characters in this series I am a huge hockey fan so I had a lot of fun making my alpha heroes hottie hockey players. For muse inspiration I usually pick someone I'm friends with or connected to on social media who has the physical characteristics I'm imagining for each character. For Dak I had one particular guy who was a huge inspiration for his behavior even though he wasn't a hockey player. And then of course there is always a tiny bit of reality woven into the story.

Hi Nicole,
I'm working on book 3 in the series as we speak. It's Damon Wolfe's story and he is the baddest bad boy of the Bernard University hockey boys! He
might be my favorite to write so far. Although, I'll always have a soft spot for Dak. LOL

I have a very busy life so I don't have a strict process. I try to grab time whenever i can squeeze it in to write and hopefully that works out to be every day, even if it's just one chapter. I'm what writers term a "pantser". In other words, I don't outline anything ahead of time. I get an idea and sit down and run with it. As a result, I could be anywhere: shower, in bed, working out and an idea will come to me on how to make an already written scene better. I stop whatever I'm doing and grab a pen to remember!

Hi Nina,
Although they can be standalone books I suggest reading Cross Stroke first and then Cross Drop because the characters are all friends and are mentioned in subsequent stories.

Wow. That's a tough one. I guess I would want you to know that I've always enjoyed writing everything from short stories to research papers but my lifelong dream has been to write novels. It took me a long time to achieve that dream but I'm here to tell you when they say never give up on a dream if you want it badly enough it will happen, it's absolutely true. I'm finally getting the privilege of painting stories with my words and I couldn't be more grateful to people like you who are out there reading them.

Peggy M (peggymo) | 113 comments Hi, I love ice hockey stories :)
I wonder which writers or what kind of books do you like to read?

Hi Peggy,
Of course, romance is my number one genre to read, contemporary as well as historical. I have so many author's works I love I could never list them all. but some of my favorites are L.J.Shen, Emma Chase, Max Monroe and Elizabeth Hoyt. I'm also crazy about all the classic authors: Jane Austen, the Brontes, Dickens. Just to name a few. BTW. I love ice hockey series too! LOL

Katherine S. (katy2ish) | 117 comments What is your favorite book and why?

Elizabeth Hartey | 77 comments Katherine wrote: "What is your favorite book and why?"
Hi Katherine,
This is so tough for me to answer. I have so many favorites. But I think I'd have to go with my classic favorite, Wuthering Heights. I'm all about the classics. Especially English literature. I'm a history geek so I can't get enough of anything from Georgian, Edwardian, Victorian, etc. periods

Karen (karenkoo) | 47 comments Would you consider co-authoring with someone?

Hi Karen,
Yes! I think bouncing ideas off someone else and combining creative work with another writer would be a blast. i hope to do it in the future.

S.Shade | 170 comments Hello :) who are some authors who inspire you?


message 21: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Hartey | 77 comments S.Shade wrote: "Hello :) who are some authors who inspire you?"
There are so many I couldn't possibly list them all. But in romance I'd have to say Lj Shen, Emma Chase, Lauren Blakely, Elizabeth Hoyt. Other than contemporary romance, I'm very influenced by the classic English literature writers such as, Austen, the Brontes, Dickens. I'd love to take a crack at an historical romance one of these days.
